The “impartiality” being shown by news channel spinsters in assessing what happened during last night’s Presidential debate is slightly odious. Ask anyone on the street and they’ll tell you Kerry did much better than Bush. He had it together and attacked with dignity, precision and a crisp delivery style. Bush didn’t blow himself up, but (a) he seemed frustrated (i.e., irked by Kerry’s criticisms, at times comically), and (b) he seemed slow, primitive of thought and fumbling at times. I don’t know if this impression is going to turn things around for Kerry, but he was the clear victor. For some reason (any goofy theories?), this impression is being slightly mucky-mucked and loop-dee-looped in the post-debate coverage on CNN or MSNBC.
