On CNN, they’re citing unnamed conservative blogs as feeling Bush had a mixed performance. It’s amusing to watch blogs get co-opted into the spin. General feeling of positive for Kerry from the CNN talking heads. Maybe the Corner; they’re pretty dubious about how Bush did. CNN thinks Bush looks annoyed. Fox is not calling either man the winner.

They’re admitting that Bush looked shorter due to the framing. Spin is fun.
Meanwhile on ABC they’re trying to say that Bush was effective – you can see the hand of the mouse spinning, spinning….
