Zingers? Really??

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. ~ NY Times
So Mitt Romney's hopes now rest on his ability to sling vicious one-liners at the President during the debates.

Roseanne for President. Or maybe Don Rickles. Romney can channel Paul Lynde and win the gay vote. If he does Phyllis Diller Mitt will lock in the women's vote. Work in a little Jimmy Kimmel and the election is his.

But these won't be spontaneous, ad-lib zingers like Reagan or Clinton could produce. Of course not. These will be pre-packaged, canned lines that Romney will spend the whole debate trying to awkwardly shoehorn into the conversation.

Clearly a man of substance who believes voters are also people of substance.
