3. I cannot begin to tell you how much I disagree with that
But let me say this - C-span is showing a split screen. You get to watch * make faces while Kerry is answering.

He also has better coloring.

10. PBS seems fair
Kerry is so much taller, unless the camera is over *moron's shoulder and Kerry in the background, it appears realistic.

imo.

12. CSPAN is BRILLIANT!
You get to see Shrub in all of his non-intellectual splendor and looking like a scared little 5 year old whenever Kerry speaks. AWESOME!

13. My TV industry source says only NPR not making W equal height...
on split-screen. OTOH, source says the disparity in placement of lecterns on the split-screen, to make Bush equal height, makes W look somewhat like a baby in a high chair!

19. Great comparison! I gave a detailed description in my post below,

for anyone not watching it live, like ikojo in another thread. But it truly is like Bush* in a highchair.

14. Unfortunately, they're the only ones using the split screen
Edited on Thu Sep-30-04 09:33 PM by Ravenswood
as someone pointed out in another thread. All the networks should be using it.

15. Naw, the top of the podium is the datum point.
See how it's higher on chimp's side? The perfect level indicator.

16. I do notice that Kerry's camera is zoomed out farther
His podium isn't at the same level.

17. Only to people who don't analyze the visual evidence at all!


The podia are the same height but Kerry is so tall that the microphone on his podium is adjusted to be more than twice the height of Bush*boy's!

You also notice immediately that the top of George's podium is 4-6" below the breastpocket of W's suit, while the top of Kerry's podium is 8-10" below the breastpocket of Kerry's suit.

And, since they've adjusted the focus to make them look the same height, in the center of the screen you can compare the height of the two podiums and see that they're giving Bush* about 4" to make him head and shoulders level with Kerry. It looks bizarre and should make people think Bush* is a vain little pipsqueak who wants to pretend he's taller than he is.

I will really enjoy talking about what a sad little man he is! That's not a slur on short men -- my husband is short, but he's not a little man on the inside, where it counts. He would never wear lifts or otherwise try to appear taller than he is.

Bush* is swallowing a good bit and just drank water for the sixth or seventh time in 30 minutes. I'll go back and check my count after the debate since this is going in TiVo.

Bush* hasn't used his most famous smirk but he's using a pissed-off little smirk and looks like he knows he's up shit creek.

21. OK, I'll retract my attack on C-SPAN then. Didn't know that FAUX
was in charge of the cameras. :puke: It's still happening though.
