I don’t have much to say about last night’s debate—other than to describe the image that came to mind every time Joe Biden smirked and laughed and interrupted and bullied. It was the image of Obama, watching on TV, alternately pacing and standing still, hand over his eyes except for a narrow slit between fingers, as though watching The Exorcist for the first time.
Over on the couch are Michelle, Valerie Jarrett, and David Axelrod, all covering their mouths.
Obama is the first to speak: “Get me somebody to throw under the bus.”
Michelle turns, glares at the other two, and says, “We’re gonna need a bigger bus.”
