Oh, yes, she did. Fox News commentator and Hot Air editor-at-large Mary Katharine Ham got the ball rolling on a wonderful new phrase to describe abject failure: ‘Like Barack Obama at a debate.”

Genius! And Twitter agrees. Next time the Twitter fail whale shows up, you can say, “Man, Twitter is really acting like Barack Obama at a  debate.”


Gasping giggles.


Of course, a sexist lefty began stomping his feet.

He was no match for Mary Katharine Ham, of course.

Oh, David. Bless your heart. You were totally left looking like Barack Obama at a debate.

And, Ace of Spades comes up with the win.

It’s funny, because it’s true. Keep it coming, Twitter. This new phrase needs to become a part of our lexicon.
