Did Dan Rather get a job at CNN?
 
2012-10-12 07:57:34 AM
After being met with a quick laughter from his fellow commentators, one of them responded 'I must be going to the wrong church!'

Awesome! Of course they would be nervous.

Why they looked more uncomfortable than a hooker with a runny nose!

It's probably one of those deals that no matter how confident you are in yourself or how talented a politician you are, you're going to be a bit nervous. If you got the skills though, once the lights are pointed at you and the questions start coming, you go into some sort of 'zone.'

That is a slanderous characterization. If I were a whore, I'd be offended at being associated with politicians.
 
2012-10-12 08:40:05 AM
So, not very nervous at all?

Why? I'm sure they pay well.

Are they allowed to take beta blockers or anything like that? Valium? A shot of whiskey?

Or is that considered "doping"?

What happens if they're found 'doping?' Are the poll numbers forcibly reversed?

All-natural supplements only. St. John's Wort, a banana for potassium, and a CD of soothing ocean sounds.

I meant associated in the sense of being lumped in the same general category, not in the sense of physical association.

If CNN reports that, I assume Biden and Ryan were yelling at the top of their voices at one another in a series of swear-laden diatribes.

According to Wikipedia, they reduce the effects of stress hormones. Plus Ryan looks like the kind of guy who would have been an Alpha-Beta in college, so they probably block him out too.
 
2012-10-12 08:51:57 AM
Did you see how relaxed Biden was by the time the debate started? That's why you gotta rub one out beforehand.

What does malarkey mean?

People apparently rushed to their computers to find out. "Malarkey," it turns out, was the third-most-searched debate-related term of the night on Google. It was also trending on Twitter for a good chunk of time.

I thought beta blockers are sometimes taken by actors and musicians to calm their nerves before a performance?

Haven't seen much of Begala post-Crossfire. Great to learn he hasn't lost his sense of humor.
 
2012-10-12 08:57:10 AM
CNN headline claims VP debate a 'draw'. Read all the right wing butthurt about how 'rude' Biden' was and how moderator was 'in the tank' of the Democrats. If CNN is reporting last night's debate was a draw, they should not be talking about whores.
 
2012-10-12 08:58:01 AM
I just realized something, all of Joe's interrupting to call Ryan on his blatant lying serves another purpose... There's very little clean audio of Ryan spouting talking points for the R/R campaign to use in ads... Genius.
 
2012-10-12 08:59:15 AM
Patton Oswalt had one of the most retweeted items of the night when he said, "Ryan is a nervous Walmart manager. Biden is an irate customer with the receipt, the warranty & he's friends w/ the store owner. #debate."

Romney interrupts, take charge, has the last word every time, is assertive, and lies all night, clear win.

Biden interrupts, take charge, has the last word every time, is assertive, and tells the truth, clear tie.

WTF?

I don't know about beta blockers... but I bet Paul Ryan has some Blue Blockers somewhere.

I think Romney and Ryan were given extra points for having powerful hair.

Not to get too off topic, but is anybody surprised that Luke Russert is apparently in the tank for the candidate who has inherited his station in life rather than earned it?

I understood that Beta-blockers were some serious shiat. IIRC my dad took them back in the b0s (briefly) for his blood pressure and he told me they made him extremely lethargic and energy-less. I'd liken it to drinking a bottle of scotch when you just want a 2 beer buzz. Way overkill

CNN lost what little credibility it had left last night. They tossed their actual instant poll, which mirrored the CBS numbers, to air a bullshiat cooked poll and make it look like a draw.

I was a CNN guy for a very, very long time, and I've tried to stay with them for as long as I can, but the ratings drop has made them so desperate that it's painful to watch.

here was my post-debate comment:

Let me see if I have this right.
Team Romney/Ryan just lie. They lie, avoid giving ANY details, and aren't even hiding the fact they are simply running on the !Obama platform.

If you let it go and try to be reasonable, respectful and respond when asked to, as Obama did you lose.
If you go after the lies, and make it clear that you aren't letting any BS slide by, then you are considered... mean, and you lose.

As far as I can tell the democrats can't win a debate as long as Ryan/Romney refuse to be truthful or detail oriented.

Do I understand that right? As long as Romney and Ryan don't stop lying, they somehow automagically win the debates?

\WTF?

At least they weren't as nervous as an altar boy...

For Biden especially it could have been bad... Was out and about last night tho so didn't see it. Based on what I have read and heard it seems like it was fairly uneventful?

Exactly my conservative friends were furious at Biden this morning...I can think of no better way to prove Biden won and won handily.

Exactly. Listen to their viewpoint and assume the exact opposite to be the truth.

Sure, it was uneventful. You missed nothing, you probably were having a far more thrilling time doing whatever you were doing.

But, speaking of what you read and heard, how long have you subscribed to Mitt and Paul's Fantastic Utter Bullshiat Weekly?

Romney and Ryan are losing the election, so the media has to say they won or at least tied the debates in order to keep the mouthbreathers from thinking the election is over and switching back to the white trash voyeurism networks.

People want to believe that all of our problems can be solved with no one in the entire society being asked to sacrifice. They want to believe the Romney/Ryan fantasy that we can simultaneously lower taxes, make massive increases in defense spending, lower the deficit and slash safety net spending without harming anyone at all.

I bolded the reasons. Style > substance. Every time. If it was about substance, Obama destroyed Romney.

// and the media couldn't call it for Biden
// they don't want to be part of the "liberal media"
// which means at best it can be a draw

Your instructions would be more effective if they were based in some sort of fact; since what CPenny said is provably correct, however, you just come across as a sad bully. I'm sure that's not what you intended.
