It's sad to see how bad some candidates are in debates around the country. Here's the Nebraska US Senate race, where Republican Deb Fischer is the pathetic performer in this clip. She's up against Bob Kerrey, a former governor who spent two terms in the senate before retiring. He's been losing the race to Fischer, largely because he's lived in New York City for the past decade running a college called the New School. Jump a minute in to skip intro.

Fischer leads by double digits in the most recent poll, but it's been a few weeks.

Who says thirty seconds isn't long enough to get a message across?

Peggy Noonan says this week's Mitt Romney debate victory was of historic magnitude.

It upended things... Barack Obama was supposed to be this moderate, centrist fellow... By the time that debate was over, Mitt Romney seemed a comletely moderate, centrist figure...

Paul Krugman defends the president by saying the economy is on the road to a very slow recovery.

We're maybe a quarter of the way back from the damage that was done by the financial crisis, but we are making our way back.

All the whining from the left over Jim Lehrer offering to much freedom to Mitt Romney is more than a little pathetic. Barack is, after all, the incumbent - with access to information that no one else can equal - and he is the smartest leader in the history of leaders. James Carville makes the point.

No, it's not the arrow, it's the Indian.

BTW, is James Carville a racist? No only does he refer to Native Americans as Indians, but he calls the president an Indian, Yikes!

Why is it believable to people that the White House deliberately covered up the terror attack in Benghazi in order to keep the Obama terror record clean, but outrageous to suggest that a number wasn't fudged along the way to the September Jobs Report?

My starting assumption on any story is that they'll do anything they can get away with to get power - Republicans and Democrats alike - and anyone not taking that approach is being naive. Reporters who report what the White House says as if it's credible are simply not doing their jobs.

Mitt Romney, chasing the ladies.

Why can't fact checkers get their facts straight?

But hold on, the Truth Squad over at NBC News vetted the same $5 trillion charge and came to a different conclusion.

It strikes me that the focus should be on getting candidates to state their philosophical convictions. Those are something you can hold them to later. Detailed legislative proposals aren't going to come true anyway.

Man on the Street interview asks Obama supporters if it's fair that the debate commission didn't let the president use his teleprompter. No one seemed to notice how ridiculous the concept is - ie, aren't debates about responding spontaneously to the things one's opponent says - how would a teleprompter adjust the text to answer a specific point? Funny.

As he reacts to Mitt Romney's call for a defunding of PBS, Actor LeVar Burton confirms that while you don't have to be a dope to be successful in Hollywood, it certainly doesn't hurt.

I was outraged. I couldn’t believe the man actually fixed his mouth to say that. I took it as an attack on children...
