From last night’s debate, an opening statement that has to be seen to be believed:
Outside the Beltway … Inside the DNC …
I don’t like her, but I’m very sympathetic. (See if anyone remembers the “sympathy poll”.)
IT’s the opening statement! How do you not know what to say during the opening statement!? It’s the one part of the debate you can practice beforehand!
Honestly, I’m not unsympathetic. I’m in a profession that sometimes requires me to get up and speak extemporaneously for a long period of time and, sometimes, your brain just freezes.
That said, the odd part of the video is that she appears to have notes in front of her and still isn’t able to figure out what to say.
It was an impressive brain freeze. When it’s that bad, the only thing you can think about is how your brain is freezing and you must do something other than panic. You can’t even read notes in front of you. I would expect it to happen to a rookie, not the incumbent, though.
between this and the video of her running from reporters questions after the debate, she almost looks like she has brain damaged.
What I saw wasn’t quite that clear. I was watching it and thinking, “what idiot doesn’t bring her crib notes???”
That makes it even worse.
