|No, really, he is.|
I saw this moment too during the debate, and just about fell off my couch.
And, yeah, I went to MLA: I saw (some good papers, some crazy), I spilled (ice cubes on a distinguished Renaissance scholar), I ate (way too much), I drank (not too much, but with people I like a lot). All in all, kind of an ideal MLA, though I still get freaked out by thousands of literature academics all in one place.
