East meets West [debate analysis]

I leave tonight for a long trip to germany, croatia, bosnia, and turkey. In advance I read a book about the balkans which inspired this drawing.

But in other news, Barack floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee last night. He won the visceral alpha-male moments; college-professor Obama learned from debate #1 that sometimes it’s not about reason or logic. When times are tough, people want to see you go toe-to-toe and punch the other guy in the gut. And worst for Romney: most of the ground he gained in his strong first debate was among independent women. In a self-inflicted wound, he just erased much of that gain by referencing “binders full of women”.
