FLORRICK’S FOUL-MOUTHED FINALE
posted December 15, 2010
Last night’s debate among the three State’s Attorney candidate -- yeah, we only remember one thing about it too. The Moment. You know the one we’re talking about. The one which guarantees that all future Chicago political debates will be broadcast with a 7-second delay. (Which, considering the upcoming mayoral debates, is probably just good thinking.)
The weather was freezing, the viewer response lukewarm, until Peter Florrick’s blistering response a moderator’s prying question made him a hero to every middle schooler who was watching the debate for homework. And to their parents as well, it seems. Last night’s post-debate polling indicates that Florrick’s furious F-bomb rehabilitated his image more than months of meekly appearing before women’s groups and church congregations has.
Florrick’s overnight jump in the polls leaves us wondering if one furious finish will lead to another one at the polls. What do you all think? Did Peter Florrick’s F-bomb change your opinion of the man?
