And you can be sure that I needed the sustenance they provided as I have been tweeting my face off during this frustrating as get-out debate- right arm RSI? Smug-mug Mittens lied, distorted and condescended at every opportunity. Obama had a few high points but could have taken the gloves off in a much more impressive way. Good god, man, stand proud, stand tall, stand up for us and all you've done. Sigh. At least Percy and I have gotten in a good snuggle. At least the boys are soundly sleeping.
