The Game is Rigged 

Boy was Paul Krugman right or what?

The debates haven't even taken place yet and MSNBC has already declared W the winner:

President Bush’s ability to stick to a scripted defense of his policies on Iraq and terrorism should give him an edge over Democratic rival Sen. John Kerry in Thursday’s presidential debate, analysts say.


But analysts say Bush has recently neutralized Iraq as a political liability, through campaign ads and stump speeches that have boiled the issue down to a series of scripted messages about strength and optimism.

“It’s hard to argue with ‘strength is good’ and ‘are you saying you’re not for strength?’,” said Thomas Carothers of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

“Kerry has to be able to give an answer that’s almost as short and about as punchy. And that’s hard,” he said.
That's pretty damned appalling, isn't it?

Ah, that liberal media, huh?

And don't you love these "analysts" they talk to?

The fact that Bubble Boy Bush is lying his ass off in his repeated happy talk about Iraq doesn't mean a damned thing to them.

For these analysts and their ilk, it's all about presenting short pre-digested pap soundbites that people with IQs below the triple digits will understand.

Every four years these morons come out of the woodwork and make these pronouncements about the debate. By doing so, they frame the discussion of the debate and the folks in the television media (who, like the "undecided voters," have IQs below the triple digits) will parrot it for the next two days.
