I had to stop watching around the time they switched to international issues, because I just couldn't take any more of the oleaginous Gergen. The way he framed his questions (e.g. emerging from the "lost decade") was pure liberal narrative worth challenging all on its own. It would be interesting to compare how many times he interrupted Brown vs. Coakley. Brown was doing fine when I hit the record button and switched channels. Coakley did an excellent job of memorizing the Dem healthcare talking points.


I can't figure out what Coakley is looking at. Brown looks straight into the camera, and Coakley looks off to the left.

And Gergen is an ass.


Lesson number one for Republicans:

Every time in the last 20 years that the Republicans have won the Presidency they did it with outsider consultants running the campaigns and the party. Lee Atwater and Karl Rove.

Outsider candidates (Reagan, Bush 43) help as well.

Seemed to me she was addressing herself to Brown, when I was watching, Jane. It's my understanding that looking straight into the camera lens, the way Brown was doing, is a much more effective way to form a connection with your viewers.

I've been loosely tracking the rate of $$ coming in over at the money bomb, and it looks to me like he got a major bump after the debate. At the pre-debate pace from around 6:00 to 8:00 o'clock, I had him coming in at just under a million by midnight, and he's already there right now at $997K.

If anyone every asks you what "damning with faint praise" means, just refer them to the Boston Herald's endorsement of Scott Brown:

If you love what’s going on in Washington, well, then by all means vote for Martha Coakley. She’s a perfectly nice person, and she won’t make a dime’s worth of difference in the balance of power in Washington.


I do think the whole movement is more anti-democrat/Washington/Obama than it is pro-Brown. I like him, but I think he is a fairly mediocre candidate. But then again, this is Massachusetts.

JMH I insist you come back here and vote.

Jane: One of the shows I watch on the tube is set in Boston and it makes me soooo homesick, even though I could fill a bluebook with the reasons for living here instead.


Republicans always have to debate the Democrat AND the moderator!


True, Janet, but some are certainly up to it, like Scott and Sarah. Interesting that they say that Youtube video of her and Napolitano
on the Charlie Rose show, a year before the election, played a part, in her election.

Annoying Old Guy


No, Old Media is very trustworthy. Someone like Gergen can count on them to exactly what they did every single time.


AOG, I think you're right. I was looking at it from the 'Who I trust" angle. Obviously, the leftists can count on them to back their point of view 99.999999999% of the time.

Here's the .0000000001 % time.

Bonus question: Has CBS ever complained about the Democrats wasting money before?
