Clever, Funny, Snarky: 6-Word Reactions to the Debate

We asked our readers to write up their impressions from the 3rd and final presidential debate, with one rule, 6 words or less.

One of AlterNet's former managing editors, Larry Smith, now editor of SMITH magazine, pioneered a book publishing and online phenomenon with the 6-Word Memoir, which has taken on a life of its own. Channeling Larry's innovation, AlterNet asked readers on Twitter and Facebook to send in their 6-word impressions of Obama and Romney's final debate. 

We've posted a sampling of some of our favorties of the responses below, kicking off with one from Larry Smith himself. You can see them all here (Twitter) and here (Facebook).
