Romney Memorizes Zingers
The funniest zingers are spontaneous responses to a situation — witty ripostes that happen off the cuff.
So naturally, Romneybot2012 is being hard-coded with a series of memorized zingers, written in FORTRAN by the best zinger-programmers in the GOP.
Mr. Romney’s team has concluded that debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers that he has memorized and has been practicing on aides since August. His strategy includes luring the president into appearing smug or evasive about his responsibility for the economy.
Prediction: most of these memorized laugh lines will be references to right wing Obama-hate memes, like “Obama ate dog!” and “Obama apologizes for America!” If the Romneybot’s programmers are really crafty, though, they’ll find a way to work in the birth certificate while still maintaining plausible deniability. The Holy Grail of right wing zingerdom.
