I enjoyed Joe’s liveblogging of the debate and I thought Obama hit a change-changing home run that reset the campaign and possibly sealed the deal.
But I find most coverage of these debates so nauseating that I can’t watch it. Maybe it’s because I’ve read too much Bob Somerby, but I firmly believe that all the Village blather about Gore’s
signs sighs cost Gore the election. Think about the consequences of that: the Iraq War, trillions of dollars extra in debt, possibly the financial collapse of 2008.
The debates are fairly dull affairs (though not last night’s) and a lot of people want to be told what they should think about who won or lost them. The fact that Cokie Roberts and Mark Halperin are in the “elite” group that decides who won or lost literally sickens me.
This is why I despise my totebagging colleagues. You’re really going to listen to what David Brooks thinks about health care reform? I want to be euthanized if I ever start to sound like that.
I’m sure that we have our own groupthink at this blog, but I thank Tebow that I can come here and escape the worst of the media propaganda.
