The brilliant Flip Wilson once took a camera crew into the street and asked passers by whether the United States military should pull out of Provolone. Person after person gave their considered analysis of the situation.

Jimmy Kimmel took a page from Flip’s book last night by interviewing people about the second Obama/Romney debate. Yes, in this case the event was real, but the interviews were conducted before it actually happened.
