Thoughts on the debate
...such as it was
First off, this was a joke of a "town-hall" format. Since when is a town-hall pre-packaged by a moderator? The questions hand selected...
The best questions of this debate were the ones that did NOT get asked.
No questions about abortion...gay marriage...second amendment...William Ayers... Since Brokaw chose the questions, one can only assume he didn't want to get any that would put Bambi on the spot with those nasty "cultural issues"...(since he figures they don't matter anyway).
Luntz focus group: who did you relate to? more Obama. But that Mac did better on the economy (?)
The CNN focus group...(they're "openminded"...heh)...they didn't hear enough specifics...who won? 10 Mac...12 for Bambi... (oooh, almost didn't stuff the audience enough).
CNN's poll: 38% dem, 3% GOP: who did best job? Obama. (well, as Gomer Pyle would say, "surprise, surprise, surprise!)
Mike Murphy says McCain did a better job of connecting w/people in this debate than in the last one.
Are there any re-runs of the VP debate on?
