The Most Dangerous Catch

June 6, 2007 | Filed Under funny haha, god bless the internet, politics 

I’ve been getting a kick out of Michael Scherer’s coverage on Salon.com of the GOP debates - he does a run-down of the important bits “so you don’t have to watch yourself.” I have been watching them though, and he does a pretty good job of summarizing the main points while throwing in some pretty funny observations and the odd jab at Wolf Blitzer:

22 minutes. The microphones are squelching. Rigid Blitzer says, “If you are hearing some sounds out there, it’s lightning.” Lightning, of course, doesn’t make sounds. Thunder makes sound. But lightning can cause electronics to belch noise. Blitzer, who appears to be built partly from electronics, is an authority.

… 67 minutes. Blitzer announces a break so chairs can be set up onstage. CNN cuts to Anderson Cooper and Larry King. Blah, blah. The Discovery Channel is showing a rerun of “Deadliest Catch.” It’s a good one. “Busted buoys, broken pots, and a blown engine have put the Northwestern more than a week behind schedule,” reads the teaser.

Here’s the link to article about last night’s debate, and here’s the one on the second debate; (I don’t think he wrote one for the first, and I’m pretty sure this “format” is reserved for Republican debates only.)
