Mommy's Juice!: Watching Other People Watch

Watching Other People Watch

I am so excited for the Presidential Debate tonight!  No, not because I'm interested in what our future President and future reality television star have to say about the economy, abortion or military spending, but for the hilarious jokes the remarks from the two will spark on Twitter!  I must say, I have never enjoyed a political debate more than the one two weeks ago when I spent the entire night following what the world had to say on Twitter while Obama and Romney battled it out.  As my husband put it: "This is unbelievable, I'm sitting here watching the debate and your sitting there watching other people watch the debate!"

How could I help myself?  With lines coming from Chris Rock like "Obama will be pulling Bin Laden's skull out any minute, wait, wait."  And how about all of those Big Bird lines?  Hilarious!!  Who knows what the world of the funny and famous will come up with tonight.

This has become a hobby of mine, hopping on Twitter for a big event and hearing what the rest of the world has to say. Like last nights #MNF game (that's Monday Night Football for my non-sports watching fans!). I had a ball kicking insults with the likes of @PeytonManningsHead, @tombradysego and @notsportscenter! I'm sure they were wondering why a @mommysjuice was so interested in football!!

This new hobby drives the hubby crazy but what can I say, the rest of the world just has much more interesting things to say than him!  Bring it on #debate!


  1. It's fun to watch people's tweets on anything political. The opinions are dead on honest and that's what makes it amusing. Thank goodness for freedom of speech!

  2. I've seen a huge spark of interest on this one, where people are watching the debate via Twitter. :)

  3. Being Canadian, I only watched my first presidential debate a couple of weeks ago. Must admit, it really was rather entertaining!

  4. I TOTALLY agree - This was my favorite from the VP debate from one of my favorite comedians - Patton Oswalt:
    "Ryan is a nervous Walmart manager. Biden is an irate customer with the receipt, the warranty & he's friends w/ the store owner."

    I agree it's hilarious!!

  5. Honestly--while it was on I caught up on my DVR shows.

  6. I guess there was some kind of record Twitter thing with the first one. Twitter is taking the place of the media.

  7. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote
    the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to
    drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.

    An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
