Dear debate commission, if you won’t kill off this silly town hall format...

Editor's note: The second presidential debate took place at Hofstra University in New York on October 16. Here are some of the top tweets of the evening.

Dana Perino@DanaPerino:I am hereby begging the Romney campaign to ignore questions about what he and mrs Romney are having for dinner.

Dick Morris@DickMorrisTweet: #debates advantage Romney on first exchange. Romney sounds very good in saying things aren't good. More credible than "your future is...

GregGutfeld ‏@greggutfeld: At least without the windmills, it would be 10 dollars a gallon.

mike murphy@murphymike: Dear debate commission; if you won’t kill off this silly town hall format once and for all; next time at least hold it in a swing state.

National Review@NRO: "That wasn't a question, that was a statement" - holy mother of slapdowns #debate

Lanny Davis@LannyDavis: Obama and Romney trying to get response and Crowley controlling this more than any previous moderator in memory. Good for Candy

Sean Hannity@seanhannity: Mr. President what doesn't add up is your 6 trillion in debt #HofstraDebate

Byron York@ByronYork: Romney came to fight, but bottom line so far is that Obama is vastly better than he was in Denver.

kirsten powers@kirstenpowers10: Good pandering to women by Obama. Now it's Romney's turn. Hear them roar.

Jonah Goldberg@JonahNRO: "Binders full of women" sounds like evidence seized from a Russian mail order bride/prostitution ring.

GregGutfeld@greggutfeld: I haven't seen a man grovel before women since The Bachelorette.

Rich Lowry@RichLowry: this is the crux of the debate--obama says romney policies have been tried and failed; romney says obama policies have been tried and failed

GregGutfeld ‏@greggutfeld: WOW. without a teleprompter Romney just made Obama seem like a good man who tried.

John Podhoretz@jpodhoretz: Lorraine, I love your quiche.

Bernard Goldberg@BernardGoldberg: Romney says Obama cares so much about dead Americans that he flies off to Vegas for fundraiser. BINGO! #Debates

GregGutfeld ‏@greggutfeld: a gun control question? ...that's like asking mice if he's against cats.

Dick Morris@DickMorrisTweet: #debates not as big as first debate, but a definite win nonetheless. Romney will continue momentum as a result of this debate.

John Podhoretz@jpodhoretz: Once the next 15 minutes are over, "binders full of women" is only going to be funny to people who don't actually have a sense of humor

Michelle Malkin @michellemalkin: YEP. RT @NolteNC Candy Crowley proved why these media fact checkers are toxic liars. #townhalldebate #lapdogs

Rupert Murdoch @rupertmurdoch: O much livelier this time, but could not promise any better four years than last. Surely the only big issue.

Laura Ingraham @IngrahamAngle: 23 million Americans will wake up this morning, after what Obama's spin-meisters call a debate "win," still w/out work, still very worried.

Stephen Colbert @StephenAtHome: I predict tonight's debate has a DRAMATIC impact on predictions for the next debate.

Bill Hemmer @BillHemmer: Hmmm... Round 3? RT @markknoller CBS News poll uncommitted voters: 37% say Pres Obama won, 30% say Romney, remainder called it a tie.

Ari Fleischer @AriFleischer: Rom was highly effective in showing what O did in 4 yrs hasn't worked. O was good at punching at Rom's positions. Draw.

Ben White @morningmoneyben: Why do we never ever ever talk about the housing market in these debates? It's INSANE.
