The devil is in the cutaways

I am with the Kerry-did-well-in-the-debate crowd today. Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry was forceful and clear as he slashed away at the flip-flopper designation that has haunted him the last few months.

Kerry also won the camera cutaway contest, keeping a straight face, jotting notes and remembering to smile, just in case the camera was watching. George Bush made some of the most hilarious grimaces and looked like he had a stomach ache as Kerry railed at him. Somebody told Kerry how to stand because he rarely made a goofy face while Bush was talking.

People don't like the other candidate to look pained or disrespectful and Bush did.
