What do Xers REALLY think about the election?

Today there's analysis all over the web on last night's vice presidential debate. No need to analize the Gen X demographic. Just look at what my peeps (those I follow) were saying on Twitter last night. I've pasted most of the comments below. Start from the bottom and work your way up. Clearly, we're not buying what they're selling. You betcha!
