da debate

it's not an image, but a comment. i'm watching the presidential debates round two. and a reaccuring shot for the debate is a head shot of the one candidate while the other is speaking. bush looks as if he is about to run out of the room or beat someone up whereas kerry looks composed and mild. i'm watching it at my parent's with a bunch of middle aged people and one of them has to close her eyes b/c bush's face keeps making her uncomfortable. it just goes to show that facial expressions speak a lot to the public and help identify if they knows at all what there talking about. bush? not getting a good vibe from you. if we could find pictures...i'll keep an eye out.

so who actually signed the thing not to show the other candidate's reactions if the networks didn't?

I wonder how much spoofs of the candidates on shows like Leno and Letterman play into how America views the candidates because the one on Leno has a definite resemblance, and watching the spoof makes me notice gestures like Bush's hunched shoulder shrug more when watching the real people.
