    I think she turned a lot of people off politics last night by encouraging a petty, largely irrellevant debate.

    •  I don't know that she (none)
      turned people off politics, but she certainly reinforced the perception that teevee talking heads are mindless and concerned with personalities and other petty things.  If I could use the words "television" and "journalism" in the same sentence without laughing myself sick, I would say that she was a discredit to her profession with her performance last night.

      However, I don't know that anyone really expected better, either.
