WASHINGTON -- The District of Columbia's non-voting delegate to the House of Representatives, Eleanor Holmes Norton, had a curious, off-color and frank reaction to Tuesday night's presidential debate.

Mitt shot his whole wad in the first debate.

Norton later followed up with a tweet that misspelled President Obama's name.

Oboma's last answer re misconception he believes govt creates jobs served as a terrific direct answer to the question.

Cheering & tweeting at the same time can make you forget how to spell your own name - and obAma's. Sorry, Barack, but you did it this time!

But reactions to Norton's initial tweet about Mitt Romney, naturally, were quick ...
