And the clueless is… CBS. While most pundits are agreeing Cheney won the debate, Dan Rather and his cronies are fulfilling their anti-Bush mission with a no holds barred assault on common sense.
Here’s what the talking heads are saying…
“I tell you, tonight, no doubt about it. Edwards got obliterated by Dick Cheney.” - Joe Scarborough, MSNBC
“Will the liberal press admit that Cheney” won? That’s a very good question. I think that the vice president did very, very well.” - Jon Meacham, Newsweek Managing Editor
“I think Dick Cheney did awfully well … putting John Edwards in his place.” - Andrea Mitchell, MSNBC
“Dick Cheney prevailed in the vice presidential debate.” - ABCnews.com
“I think the analogy would be a water pistol against a machine gun. Every once in a while, Edwards would take a squirt at the vice president, and then the vice president would just turn the Howitzer on the guy.” - Chris Matthews, MSNBC
“Dick Cheney Reminded Me Of George Foreman, Kind Of A Slow Gait, But A Powerful Right-Hand When He Unleashed It In A Number Of Areas As He Went After The Kerry-Edwards Ticket.” - Tom Brokaw, NBC
“I Think, Chris, Dick Cheney Could Audition For The Lead Role In The Apprentice, If Donald Trump Ever Gets Tired. I’m Sorry, Senator, You’re Fired. You Just Don’t Measure Up.” - Tim Russert, NBC
“[Cheney] Looked Like A Man In Charge.” - Fred Barnes, Weekly Standard
“The Single Most Devastating One-Sided Drubbing Since Lloyd Bentsen Smacked Dan Quayle All Around The Stage In 1988.” - Jim Geraghty, National Review
“Time After Time, Cheney Trapped Edwards Into Explaining Kerry’s Positions, Forcing Him To Waste Time And Transform Himself Into An Often Embarrassing P.R. Guy.” - James Ridgeway, The Village Voice
“[John Edwards] Got Outclassed By Dick Cheney” - Howard Fineman, Newsweek
So what did cBS say? “John Edwards continued the Democratic ticketï¿½s winning streak in Tuesday night’s vice presidential debate.” Do you C-B-S? I do.
