Dahlia Lithwick on the weirdness of live mediation of an event that's better observed on television:
So—a casualty of too much reality television—I watch the cameraman watching Al [Franken]'s reaction. This provides a fascinating look into the postmodernist conundrum of pastiche/simulacrum/deconstructionist reality. It really doesn't tell you who to vote for. [slate]

Likely winner of today's best convention coverage. Developing. Can you tell that I'm supposed to be writing something else?
