3 Trivial Wisconsin points

My wife and I have been watching the returns come in on CNN and the candidates' speeches. It is getting late, so I have three trivial points:

1) Darrell Hammond must be esctatic that John McCain is the GOP nominee as he will nail the impersonation now that the writers are back. I am looking forward to the Ford-esque word jumbles combined with the enthusiastic double downward chops.

2) Both Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama sound and look like they need a day off to sleep in, drink lots of soup and honey sweetened tea and relax. Both voices sound rough.

3) Hillary Clinton needs to get the networks shooting her face from either a flat angle or slightly above. Unfortunately we live in an age-ist and sexist society and lines on a woman have much stronger negative tones than a male craggy face. The slight up-tilt in the CNN camera angle is not a flattering angle for her.
