Video: Fred clashes with Matthews, one-liners fly

posted at 6:41 pm on October 9, 2007 by Allahpundit

All right, a little grab bag for you here to polish off the highlights. It starts with what J-Pod calls the most “blatant act of obnoxious misbehavior during a debate” he’s ever seen and the long, awkward silence that ensues, then segues into the candidates’ dusting off some prefab zingers as the clock runs out. Fred did well here, especially in parrying Mitt’s “Law & Order” thrust. Like MK says, not a great performance but good enough overall.

Just exactly how was Mitt’s jab a bit of acting?

It was a good joke but it came off looking very rehearsed, at least that’s what I thought. Fred’s rejoinder was neat.

Well, no. The subject is the debate.

The point is that I am not the subject and we were discussing Fred when they tried to shift the discussion to little old csdeven.

Oh, and Fred did slap Mitt upside the head with his response to Mitt’s pre-packaged,canned, and rehearsed, Law & Order comment.

Only if you think his comment was apropos. It wasn’t. A least Mitt’s response made sense. Fred’s pre-packaged rehearsed response was totally nonsense in relation to the situation. Fred was the one looking to put a zinger out there, the problem is that it made no sense whatsoever.

What about Mitt’s comment made him a better actor?

It’s not on this tape, but I was slack-jawed when Ron Paul said that our current currency is “counterfeit.” ??? He’s a candidate for the funny farm, and QUICKLY!

Fred should have Mitt’s Law & Order comment with:

I hope it’s like Law & Order. I show up, win, and then the show’s over. Now how far DID you want to take your little analogy Mitt?

OK…I’ll concede that point.

But ya gotta admit, with your constant dissing of Fred, it’s almost inevitable that you would become the subject.

I do like the fact that you said you would vote for Fred in opposition to The Glacier.

But please, don’t give oppo reasearch any ammo. You know the Clinton camp will do anything and everything in their power to tar the Repub nominee.

Other than that, I like your comments. Most of the time. ;)

I’m a l’il curious as to how you could consider Fed’s reply to Mitt “pre-packaged”. That would imply that Fred knew the question was coming.

Which would make him either psychic, or a master of pre-debate intelligence.

Not bad qualities for a potential CinC.

I think the rreference to being a better “actor”, was Fred’s way of suggesting that Mitt’s question was rehearsed/scripted.
