Schieffer to the rescue?

Justin Webb | 22:28 UK time, Wednesday, 15 October 2008

So will tonight's debate moderator, Bob Schieffer, rescue US broadcasters from the woeful depths? I see no great hope in this piece, but the hopeless, incompetent, lazy, cringe-inducing performance of the "anchors" so far will not be difficult to improve tonight.

At least those crazy, prinked-up, self-obsessed ninnies who shout all the time on cable TV would get a reaction from the candidates and might see whether they can manage complete sentences they have not previously memorized.

Which, frankly, ought not to be the greatest achievement for the next leader of the free world.
