Even former Talk editrix turned Washington Post columnist Tina Brown has her good moments.

Here’s one from her piece on the vice presidential debate:

“Dick Cheney’s bullet head and nuanced basso anchored his thoughts to his words and filled out the frame of the screen, while beside him Edwards bobbed like a tethered balloon. All that gulping from that damn blue mug. All that endless scribbling on the yellow pad. What was he writing at such copious length? A symphony? A movie proposal? If moderator Gwen Ifill had been his teacher she’d have been asking: ’John, have you taken your Ritalin today?’”
