Paying Attention

That, and other news, in today’s Political Panorama.

A few quick notes this morning…

Rules of Engagement: Nielsen says that voters not committed to either candidate were “12% more engaged by TV coverage of the GOP convention than the Democratic convention.” John McCain’s acceptance speech “drew the most attentive audience of uncommitted viewers.”

“SNL” Post Mortem: James Poniewozik of Time predicts fallout for GE because of the decision of “Saturday Night Live” to take advice from Al Franken. He writes, “Should SNL have accepted input from a Democratic Senate candidate? Dollars to doughnuts this will become a cause celebre among conservatives arguing that NBC as a whole is biased—the ultimate aim being to pressure NBC News to “balance” its coverage to the right. But while I’m sure this is a headache General Electric would rather not have, to me it’s a distinction without a difference.”

Emmy Post-Mortem: Backstage at the Emmys, Tina Fey made a non-endorsement of Sarah Palin: “I want to be done playing this lady November 5th. So, if anyone can help me be done playing her on November 5th…”

Lifetime Poll: With Sarah Palin on the ticket, John McCain makes huge gains among women in the latest Lifetime survey.
