A fly hung out for two minutes on Vice President Mike Pence's head during the VP debate last night and it's all anyone can talk about.

Maybe because the debate was decidedly more civil than the Presidential debate, maybe because there weren't as many knockout moments of disagreement or "one-liners" for people make t-shirts out of, or maybe because the entire country needed something - light - to focus on, one thing seems certain...this is a "flypartisan" issue that brought many smiles and giggles last night and has become the one part of the debate that everyone is obsessed with.
