The first presidential debate was a surprise. President Barack Obama seemed to be out to lunch and flat-footed, while Willard Mitt Romney danced all around him.

Wooden Willard was uncharacteristically funny, smooth as a snake oil salesman and how he managed to get away with so many variations of the truth is truly impressive.

In the unlikely event that he makes it to the presidency, we all better be ready for surprises. Romney changes his story so often it should be clear by now that he doesn’t say what he means or mean what he says.
