The media usually likes the performance of the person who was the bigger asshole in a debate (unless it's a woman the media won't let a woman be an asshole (the "b" word and all that)) and such is the case now.
Oh that Romney he sure was aggressive, he must have won.
I'm not a big fan of the "debates" because they accomplish nothing and generally waste two to three hours of our lives -- or if you're Andrew Sullivan (not gonna link, you can go find his "we're all gonna die" panic for yourself) reinforce every preconception we have of you.
But this is pleasantly surprising:
I still don't see how that could be a surprise, frankly, but it is unique to see a "serious" person call Romney on being an outrageous liar.
