8:56 PMDan O'Brien - You may scoff, but anyone who's been to prison knows EXACTLY what I'm talking about.
8:56 PMHbn Gladstone - John McCain has been in prison
8:57 PMRoss Wolinsky - Just to bring everyone up to speed with a complete non-sequitor, Swaim has already accused me of having a penis that presents a choking hazard to small children, to which I countered that it was manufactured in China and is covered in lead paint.
8:57 PMRoss Wolinsky - All that and the debate hasn't even STARTED yet.
8:57 PMMichael Swaim - Whoa! That was BEHIND THE SCENES commentary, Ross.
8:57 PMMichael Swaim - They have to wait for the DVD for that shit
8:57 PMRoss Wolinsky - I know. But marketing said people like that kind of stuff.
8:57 PMMichael Swaim - Also, Palin's daughter is retarded.
8:57 PMMichael Swaim - There, it can only go up from here.
8:58 PMRoss Wolinsky - Hence the Glitter Act of 2009.
8:58 PMHbn Gladstone - I'm not gonna like to you, Swaim. Your pic is freakin' me out.

8:59 PMDan O'Brien - Hey, on CNN, they're talking about Polls. It says 80% of the people think the country is going badly.
8:59 PMDan O'Brien - Did any of you guys take this poll?
8:59 PMDan O'Brien - No one ever asks me to take these polls everyone's always talking about
8:59 PMRoss Wolinsky - Can you guys tell me when I need to actually turn on the TV? As it stands I'm in the alley behind my apartment going through the contents of my wallet.
8:59 PMMichael Swaim - I think they just poll Kieth Olbermann now
9:00 PMMichael Swaim - And chatting online, Ross? I submit that you are a liar.
9:00 PMRoss Wolinsky - It's called WiFi. Check it out.
9:00 PMDan O'Brien - It's starting guys. The shit is on.
9:00 PMMichael Swaim - I sincerely hope that the talk gets slightly more political when the debate starts...

9:02 PMMichael Swaim - His voice is so smooth it makes me want to puke.
9:02 PMRoss Wolinsky - What's the matter? You don't trust him?
9:02 PMRoss Wolinsky - I get the feeling he's done this before.
9:02 PMDan O'Brien - I like Dana Carvey's Brokaw better than this guy.

9:03 PMDan O'Brien - Does Brokaw have two microphones pinned to his tie?
9:04 PMRoss Wolinsky - Is THAT Joe Six-Pack?
9:04 PMMichael Swaim - I think my feed is ever so slightly delayed. I'll have to up my game to keep up with this razor-sharp humor.
9:04 PMDan O'Brien - That won't make him louder. That's not how sound works.
9:04 PMRoss Wolinsky - I didn't think he'd be so... bald.
9:04 PMHbn Gladstone - No that's my 8th grad shop teacher
9:04 PMRoss Wolinsky - Oh. Well, either way he's clearly drunk.

9:06 PMRoss Wolinsky - Look at that perfect right angle on McCain's arm.
9:06 PMRoss Wolinsky - I call bullshit - that is a fake arm.
9:07 PMMichael Swaim - They should really have a debate where Brokaw's allowed to say "WRONG!"
9:07 PMDan O'Brien - He can't comb his own hair.
9:07 PMMichael Swaim - Hear the timbre in his voice? There's that compassion.
