On reflection

I missed Tim Russert — that’s how bad last night’s "Michelle Malkin/Steve Doocy" driven non-policy based debate turned out. As was clearly noted by you in several contemporaneous posts by Eli, But don’t take it from me or us, take it from Tom Shales:

Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos, turned in shoddy, despicable performances….

At the end, Gibson pompously thanked the candidates — or was he really patting himself on the back? — for "what I think has been a fascinating debate." He’s entitled to his opinion, but the most fascinating aspect was waiting to see how low he and Stephanopoulos would go, and then being appalled at the answer.

I look forward to the national debates this year, when the Democrat gets asked about some 8th cousins poor behavior on "Survivor" or burgeoning adult film career, followed by John McCain getting to talk about his POW experiences.

From Chris Vlasto to Jake Tapper’s obsession with smelling the candidates, ABC news remains the place to go, to reaffirm ‘Drudge Rocks their World’…and Sean Hannity writes their questions.

And, as done last night — here are the feedback forums where you can tell ABC News just how much you appreciated their nearly policy-free effort.

ABC switchboard: 212-456-7777 or per Joe Sudbay 818-460-7477.

Or you can fill out their online feedback form.

"Killing at least..."



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
