But what has it got in its pocketses, eh?

You all know how much I love a good conspiracy theory and Romney's cheat sheet is a great one. The campaign swears it was a handkerchief Mitt threw on the podium at the first debate. But it surely is a little weird that it bounced that hard when it hit the wood. And what did Romney try to put in his breast pocket after the debate was over? It does seem odd that it wouldn't fit.

Of course, it's not something that can ever be proven. Much like the mysterious lump in George W's jacket back in 04, we'll never know for sure. But it's certainly not beyond the pale to believe Romney is capable of cheating. It's practically mandatory for Republicans. It's probably in their rule book.

So credit where it's due for the meticulous breakdown of the video. They made a damn good case for Romney slipping in a cheat sheet at this debate. Besides, how the hell else would he be able to remember all those gazillions of zingers everyone said he was practicing for all those weeks?

If you watched the debate, you saw him wipe his nose at one point with the object in question. It was rather soft and cloth-like to be a piece of paper and really didn't crinkle when he wiped his nose with it. Did you miss that in the debate? Did you see the many images floating around or even the video on youtube of him wiping his nose with that mysterious handkerchief-like object?

I did watch and I didn't see him blow his nose. Neither did I say I was buying into the theory, just said it was good one. So take a breath.
