A few days ago I posted about a Katie Couric moment where she was caught by the camera between live appearances. I thought she was amazingly calm and sweet given all that was going on. Here's what a t.v. personality looks like when they explode at the least little thing.

You want people to make their presidential choices based on issues, experience and judgment fine. But then you'd better be prepared to find something to do with these people, because there are a lot of them in both parties. I know, I hear it all the time:
