In a rather goofy string of tweets - that began yesterday at 2:16 a.m. and continued through the end of the debates - the comedian yucked it up with Laffy Taffy-worthy zingers (yeah, I used the z-word). The first ("The dracula with insomnia had to start drinking de-coffin-ated coffee") went on to include politically-tinged shout outs to vampires, werewolves, ghosts and even The Creature from the Black Lagoon from MacDonald and his followers.
Norm crafted gems like:
"I knew Wolfman, I worked with Wolfman, Senator you are no Wolfman": President Dracula
"Are you more evil than you were four years ago?": Senator Wolfman
"Would you please both answer the zombie question.": Jim Lehrer, Zombieman
While he retweeted these solid ones from fans:
"I would have liked more specifics on Romney's clean water policies." - Creature from the Black Lagoon, pundit
"I promise to bring more transparency to washington!" Invisible man
"Let me be clear" - President Invisible Man
"Mr President, I wasn't reanimated yesterday." Frankenstein Monster, Wall Street Journal.
"I would like Mr.Obama's views on whether flying brooms are clean energy transportation" Witch, Times Correspondent
"With respect to President Dracula, I don't think we should have in office a man who can't look himself in the mirror."
"I will stomp out corruption" President Big Foot
"listen, i'm the guy you want answering the phone at 3am. i mean, i'm already awake." president dracula
"This guy hasn't worked a DAY since he's been in office." Wolfman candidate about President Dracula
"Death is just the first step of my healthcare plan"-President Zombie
"We, as a country, need to work together in the spirit of bite-partisanship." - President Dracula
"Wolfman, you can change your car or your house. You can even change from a man into a wolf. But you can't change the truth!"
"Dr. Frankenstein may have created a monster. But, YOU have created a president." - Frankenstein's acceptance speech.
"47% of the American people don't even believe I exist, but I'll scare them straight" - Ghostly Presidential hopeful, Ghost
"unfortunately nominee Bigfoot could not be found on the campaign trail" -Associated Press
"Mr. President, how do you respond to allegations of missing livestock during your presidency?" - Wolfman Blitzer
Maybe Norm was just in the Halloween mood, or perhaps he is really trying to get the unexplained on the agenda!...but it's probably just the first part.
