Final debate post (until October) (please)
Thank god the debates are over and the final one fell on the night BEFORE my 25th wedding anniversary....As bad as Russert may be, at least the MSNBC debates don't include audience cheering sections so a little substance seeps in and pundits afterward can't talk about certain statements getting (meaningless) cheers or boos.... Hillary's "why do I have to answer first?" whine and reference to SNL one of the most awkward moments of the entire campaign....Obama's "Massatusetts" was odd...and why did they show that picture of Louis Farrakkan in some kind of Muslim dress praising Israel? Or maybe I'm getting confused....out of gas...
