Remember how after the first debate top Romney surrogate John Sununu said President Obama had lost because he's incompetent and that he wouldn't do better next time because he wasn't "bright" enough?

JOHN SUNUNU, ROMNEY CAMPAIGN: The president demonstrated his incompetence, and it's amazing to me, now the rehabilitation of the president's mess last night is beginning to start. And you see the left-wing press now starting to make up excuses, to say "well, he just had a bad night." He didn't have a bad night. The Obama you saw last night is the Obama that has been in the White House for four years, and that's why we have a problem.

JON SCOTT, FOX NEWS: You don't think there will be a better prepared President Obama on stage next week?

SUNUNU: When you're not that bright, you can't get better prepared.

Well, who doesn't look bright now, asshole?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
