Let’s see…it went a little something like this…
I am Tom Brokaw. I talk really, really deeply. Watch and listen as I school these candidates on how this all works. Senator Obama…you…are…first. The economy.
BlahBlahBlahBlahBlah. Aaaand…BlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlah. McCain and Bush BlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlah. Change BlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlah. Aaaand…(finger point) BlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlah….
Senator…you are taking too long. So shut it. Senator McCain? Your response on the eco…

I think we CAN fix the entire world easily by BlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlah. Oh…ha ha…I see you waving your arms Tom. But seriously BlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlahBlah earmarks.

I’m only a hired hand here. But if you two don’t keep your amazingly complicated and overly tired responses to under 1 minute, I will be forced to make the red light flash faster. Kapeesh? Senator Obama. Foreign affairs.
