The award for best post-debate analysis goes to Steve Kornacki of the NY Observer for this article: “Bloomberg Beats a Dead Horse”
The irony is that Kornacki doesn’t analyze the debate at all, specifically. No guessing which hand gesture most affected turnout (Bloomie grabbing his lapels), or what response most sent shivers through people (Thompson’s grade of D- for Bloomberg’s term as mayor). Instead, Kornacki chooses to dissect the dialogue of the campaigns, compare the reality of the ’09 Race with what it could have been, and analyze why we’ve ended up with politics as usual.
And as usual, he’s spot on.
