Best descriptions of last night’s presidential ‘debate’

Tom Knapp, Kn@pster:

“It came off like two old spinster sisters who live together carping at each other over whether Mama’s Watergate Salad recipe calls for half a cup or 2/3 of a cup of pineapple.”

John Nichols, The Nation:

“The United States does not have presidential debates in any realistic sense of the word.

“It holds quadrennial joint appearances by major-party candidates who have been schooled in the art of saying little of consequence in the most absurdly aggressive way

“That is because presidential debates have become the political equivalent of a classic rock radio station. You’ll hear all the hits, and maybe even a few obscure tracks that you’d almost forgotten.”
