Assigned Seating?

Monday, October 6, 2008 Posted by: Mebz

 I just wanted to make a small observation regarding CNN’s coverage of the last two debates.  Mainly the VP debate… WHO THOUGHT UP THIS SEATING ARRANGEMENT?

Seven people crammed on to one side of the table?  It’s like a bad Thanksgiving dinner.  Maybe try a bigger table next time.

At least someone was thinking during the first Presidential debate: 

“Hey- I know, lets use BOTH sides of the table!”  Good job, guys.  Go Team!

And for you JK and MW fans, I present to you the moment of the night, where Mebz damn-near died:

(Yes, I totally stole this screen grab from Cyn’s most excellent site  First of all, if you haven’t been there, what is wrong with you and secondly, don’t hate me Cyn, you know I love you.)

But wait! It didn’t end there— OMG, it’s the CNN REPORTER TRIFECTA!

Anderson Cooper, Michael Ware and John King?!  IN A ROW?!  I tell you what, if they had added Peter Bergen into the mix, I would have turned into a 10-year-old at a Jonas Brothers concert.

Yes, I changed the theme, again.

    During the first debate I just loved John’s purple tie.
    But you’re right Campbell looks so uncomfortable sitting there at the end.
    Also for what it’s worth I kind of liked the last layout better.
    Great work

    Okay, I think I’m done playing with the layout for a while.

    Personally I would have been happy if John, Michael and Christiane were the only ones there having a conversation. Everyone else could have gone home. I would have liked to hear the three of them talking for an hour. It would have been interesting.

    BTW, Mebz I LOVE the layout. Very nice!

    Forgot to mention, I love the screencap of the back of Anderson’s head. I’m one of those Anderfans who likes the back of his head…LOL!

    Thank you Mebz for your wonderful site! I had not seen this before. I love John too.

    I was ROFL at your post. I thought the same things about the set up at the table. LOL. And when I saw Anderson, John, Mick and Christiane that evening, all in the same place, I alsmost peed my pants with glee! It was the dream team for certain. I also chuckled the other night when we had the “grown ups table” and the smaller “kids table”. Very cute.

    Also was wishing for Nic Robertson and Peter Bergen that famous nite. However, if that had been the case, I would have had to be hospitalized.

    Love your sense of humor. Keep up the excellent work. =)
