I'm loath to use the word, but Max's expression is insipid. Plain and simple. He's lost the will to faux emote.
Romney's flag lapel pin is GOP version of "mine's bigger than yours." True patriots don't need 'em, and don't need big ones. Fail.

I have made a pact with myself: to work out for the entire debate. That will make it all okay.
