The audience figured it out and booed them.
Last night's debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama was an embarrassment to even half-assed members of the media. Like me.
And it's further evidence that the myth of the supposed "liberal media" is dead.
Moderators Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulis were so consumed with repeating attack points on the candidates that a full 45 minutes went by before a single substantive issue was raised.
You know, those unimportant little things like health care, the war, the economy, the mortgage crisis, etc. Stuff that doesn't matter to the vast majority of voting Americans out there.
All that trivial shit had to wait until George and Charlie could ask about Obama's pastor (has he said anything shocking THIS week yet?) and Clinton's faulty memory of Bosnia (it's been a month now; we all GET IT!) for the first three quarters of an hour.
Because a fucking flag pin is waaaaaay more important to me than the thousands of dollars I spent to get minimal health care last year.
Yeah, the booing crowd figured it out, too.
