So That's Why They're Undecided

I just saw a focus group of 24 swing voters on CNN, with Bill Hemmer, who did something truly wonderful.

"So after this debate," he asked his panel," have you made up your mind about who to vote for? Yes or no -- let's see a show of hands."

The voters looked suitably baffled. Some of them tentatively raised their hands, having no idea whether they were voting for yes or no. Hemmer, looking pleased with himself, announced, "Okay, about half. There you have it."

Wolf Blitzer forged bravely, blithely on, as Blitzers always do. Truly, we are lucky to live in times like these.
