I’ll leave it to others to do more serious analysis of the debate which I think most agree was won by President Obama. He certainly produced the most memorable response.
“But I think Governor Romney maybe hasn’t spent enough time looking at how our military works. You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military’s changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.”
Here are some of my favorite debate twitters thanks to Andrew Sullivan and the Daily Kos.
See that look in Mitt Romney‘s eyes. That’s the feeling a guy with $300 million has when he’s found something he can’t buy.

I had neither Horses nor Bayonets on my bingo card.
You guys realize that unicorns are basically horses with bayonets growing out of their heads, right?
And finally from Andrew Sullivan the meme of the debate
