First Debate Ad Is Out: 'Mitt Romney, What A Guy'

According to most of the polls right after the presidential debate on Wednesday night, Mitt Romney was the big winner, including according to this CNN poll. Yet in this new ad put out by the DNC in response to the debate, Mitt Romney came across as an overbearing buffoon who doesn't understand the rules of debate, or more likely -- doesn't think the rules apply to him.

But according to Twitter, the moderator was the clear loser. Jim Lehrer and "Poor Jim" were both trending topics on Twitter an hour into the debate. An anonymous Twitter account was quickly created in honor of "silent Jim Lehrer" and quickly topped 3,000 followers.
