At long last, it's this year's first presidential debate (7 p.m., Channels 2, 4, 5, 7, 13, CNBC, CNN, C-SPAN, FNC, FBN, MSNBC). President Barack Obama and former Gov. Mitt Romney face off at the University of Denver.
It's not that I've been all that anxious to see the debate. But I am extraordinarily tired of the unending, mind-numbing "analysis" of the upcoming event that has been all over television news.
The TV pundits are like football "experts" giving preseason analysis. They don't really have a clue how things are going to turn out, but they talk like they do.
