...While I will force myself to play the pointless game of picking winners and losers among the candidates in a game which can not be conclusively scored, I should start by pointing out the real losers in last nights affair
John King and CNN...

I didn’t see the debate, but all day the excerpts were being broadcast on the radio and I kept hearing that “er” “um” “eh” thing. I though it was just background transients in the recording until one of the broadcasters (Rush?) pointed out it was Mr. King.
Is it Tourette’s syndrome? No joke, I really have to ask (and I am sure I am not alone).
I listened to the whole thing on the radio and was thoroughly annoyed at the constant grunting.
The whole debate had the forced rushed pacing of a TV game show, made only worse by the tweaked out spazz King.
Hey Client Nine Network, has John King finished his bath room break? He was grunting all night during the debate!
FNC or CNN?
Did you notice the bar code that CNN splashed on the corner of the screen after the debate, and King mentioned to people to use to get additional information? That's a neat trick to get the younger tech-savvy viewers to deep-dive into your content.
Today's smartphones have barcode scanning capability built into the phones that use the cameras to read the barcodes and look up UPC codes over the internet for comparison shopping.
CNN must have some kind an iPhone/Android app that will let people scan the barcode off of their TV screens using their phones, and then link to additional CNN content from their websites.
I can see FNC doing this. I can see candidates doing this from their TV or print ads. Just scan the barcode for more information.
John King: Idiot or Hack?
I agree. The format was retarded and King was an annoying punk.
I never heard of John King before last eve, and hope to never hear about him again. But, anybody that’s seen him before - does he grunt uhh errr bah normally? Or was it a special performance just for the “debate”?
King Interruptous Spasmodicous.
I watched the debate and I couldn’t figure out why he was grunting all the time. Why ask them questions if you’re not going to give them time to answer? What a jerk he was.
Whats with the stupid choices? Deep Dish or Thin Crust? What’s with that? I am surprised they didn’t ask Cane “Fried Chicken or Watermelon?”
Very clever of CNN; John King — what a jerk. By the end he had given me a headache.
Another liberal trick to make the listener feel irritation while listening to conservatives.

Now THAT is an interesting. Send it to Rush and if you can, call in and discuss it!
Was King the guy who was grunting all the time while the candidates were speaking? I wasn’t sure at first is someone was grunting or farting.
Did Politico change the title of the article after you excerpted it? Or did you just make it up?
Really? Did the Mods completely rewrite the post? I don’t trust that one....
OK, now the links go to the Hot Air article. I don’t get it, but I guess I owe you an apology or something...
I have no idea what happened. I’ve screwed up several posts lately, so perhaps it was my fault after all. In any case you owe me no apology.
I wish one of them would have had the balls to say:
“Back to you, John King... this or that... Vladimir Lenin or Leon Trotsky.”
