Thursday on CBS This Morning, comedian Lewis Black railed against the first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and his challenger Mitt Romney.
He questioned why Americans were only able to listen to the candidates for two-minutes at a time, complaining that it wasn’t even possible to explain how to souffle an egg in that amount of time.
“You can say Romney won it because he looked mildly more alert,” he continued. “But I don’t think anybody out there — I’m pretty bright, I don’t really know what they are saying. It sounds like English, I know it’s English, but it doesn’t come through. They should explain it. Don’t tell me you are going to do this, tell me how you are going to do it.”
When it came to voting, Black encouraged everyone to participate.
“I really think the most important reason to vote is that it is the one day that when I come out of that booth, I go, ‘this is the most ineffectual I ever feel.’ I feel like I have no effect on my environment. And what is great about that is that after you come out with that horrible feeling, every day that follows, you get to say, ‘well, you know, it was a bad day but at least I didn’t have to vote.”

Analyst tells CNBC: Recession will hit US several months before 2020 election
An analyst told CNBC on Monday that a recession is likely to hit the U.S. just months before the 2020 election.
"The inversion of the yield curve is a great signal that a recession is coming," Guy Lebas of Janney Capital Management explained. "Recessions by their nature are impossible to predict with any confidence but we have a few clues."
Lebas pointed to corporate capital expenditure plans as a sign of economic stress.
"They are hinting somewhere in the early to mid portion of 2020," he said of a possible recession.

Orange County teens busted for singing obscure Nazi song while giving Hitler salutes
Nearly a dozen high school students from Southern California delivered Nazi salutes and sang a Nazi marching song in a video posted on social media.
