Second Presidential Fuels Internet Parody

| No Comments

The second presidential debate Tuesday night gave plenty of insight on the two candidates for voters, but it also gave ammunition to internet farce from an unlikely source.

The debate was held in a town hall style, allowing audience members to ask questions to candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. The final, "tough," question of the night from Barry Green spawned a flurry of activity on social media sites.

"What do you believe is the biggest misperception (sic) that the American people have about you as a man and a candidate?" Green asked. "Using specific examples, can you take this opportunity to debunk that misperception and set us straight?"

Debate watchers jumped to Twitter to offer mock-tough questions for the two candidates, causing the hashtag "#ToughQuestionsFromBarry" to trend.

Actor Wil Wheaton got in on the fun with several of his own parody Barry Green-esque questions, including this one about Transformers.
