No Need to Watch the Debates: Here (in Advance) Are the Reactions
No one really has the inclination to sit through tomorrow night’s Presidential debate, right? In this day and age, we just want to cut to the chase—who will be judged the winner?
And in this single regard—judging who won—the outcome is a foregone conclusion. Thanks to powers I never knew I had (and to the great folks at the Media Research Center), I have been able to capture for your benefit video excerpts from Thursday’s TV shows (and Friday’s, and Saturday’s, and Sunday’s… ad infinitum, or rather—ad electionem, since they don’t need to carry on beyond that point), which are self-explanatory.
Here, for example, is Piers Morgan’s take on the debate:
And here is the incomparable Chris Matthews, with superlatives that only he can summon:
As for Mitt Romney? How did he do? Well, here is (former) CNN correspondent Bob Franken, telling you what he thinks of Republicans like Gov. Romney:
Once again, I give you Chris Matthews on the Republican point of view:
And for a fresh perspective on the Republicans, here is Thomas Roberts, of MSNBC live:
And—oh, but wait: Here is Howard Fineman, formerly chief political correspondent for that formerly leading and influential periodical Newsweek:
Not even Paul Ryan could escape the devastating media critique. Here is the Today show co-host Ann Curry, questioning him about the sheer cruelty of his proposed budget:
Oh, yes—the celebrities’ reaction to the debate. How could I have forgotten? Here, for instance, is David Letterman waxing flatulent over the President’s courage:
And, for a parting shot from Hollywood, how about this one from Sean Penn:
Now, do you see? I have just spared you hours and hours of the doldrums. You don’t need to wait for Wednesday night—instead, take your spouse out and enjoy a nice dinner. And instead of turning on the TV for the rest of the week, go to the library and check out a book you never would otherwise have considered. (If you would like a suggestion, you might try Erasmus, The Praise of Folly.) You will thank me on Sunday.
