Memos from each campaign detailing their expectations for the debate:

Mitt Romney Plans to Stay Awake for 72 Hours Prior to First Debate, and Other Revelations

Note: That is probably satire.

All I could think of when I read that headline is that Romney's religion only allows decaf, so how could he stay awake for three days straight?

Three debates on the economy. I expect lots of discussion about which insane austerity plan is the best way to balance the budget.

Krugman wrote: far too many Very Serious People have been taken in by the cult of austerity, by the belief that budget deficits, not mass unemployment, are the clear and present danger, and that deficit reduction will somehow solve a problem brought on by private sector excess.

Romney: Debates aren't about a win

Is it about a loss instead?

Wow. I predict Romney will wildly exceed all expectations.

Mostly by showing up and not barfing on anybody.
