Simpering ninnies, go home: Midway through last evening's hour, Katty Kay showed up to expound on the Charlie Rose show.
Katty was in a serious twit about the evening's debate. This is what Katty Kay saw when Biden and Ryan debated:
ROSE (10/11/12) Katty Kay, you are coming to us now from Washington. Your impressions?Asked to voice her basic reaction, Katty found nothing to comment on except Biden's body language. That's the feedback she was getting! From people who watched in their homes!
KAY: Yes, I agree, I think that Paul Ryan you know performed well and Republicans will be quite happy with him. He was clear, he was concise, he too was energetic. And look, we’ve never seen him perform on such a huge national platform as this one, and he held his own against Joe Biden. I mean, this debate— Some polls are giving it to Biden, some polls are giving it to Ryan, which suggests to me that it’s pretty much of a wash.
I wonder how much this helped Barack Obama. I think that one of the things that people are going to remember about this debate is less what Joe Biden or Paul Ryan said than Joe Biden's constant smiling, shaking his head, oh, my God, looking I thought at some point at something that was just suggesting maybe a little unhinged. I actually thought it came across as slightly condescending, patronizing, perhaps even a little arrogant and that's exactly the same rap that some people have against Barack Obama's performance just recently.
You know the shtick against Obama if there is one yet is that he has a tendency to be a little bit arrogant. The last thing the White House needs at the moment is for people to turn around and say, “Look this arrogant White House, they don’t listen to other people, they don't take this format seriously and they are not taking us seriously.” And I think that could have hurt with some swing voters.
I just, I— From the feedback I’ve had from people that were watching in their homes, there were even people who had a tendency to—
KAY: —want Biden to do well, they didn't like what they saw just in terms of his body language.
In fairness, Kay is a top-notch analyst. Consider this example:
“Some polls are giving it to Biden, some polls are giving it to Ryan, which suggests to me that it’s pretty much of a wash.”
Only the BBC presents such trenchant work.
Let us translate the rest of the commnents by this very bad person:
Katty Kay is paid large sums of money.
Katty Kay has excellent health care. She will never need Social Security. She eats in great restaurants; she drives great cars.
She doesn’t give a flying fuck. She lives to clown and piddle and diddle with others of her class.
Question: Is there some possible way to send this empty suit home?
