    You guys are no Martin Sheen 

    Tom Shales, Washington Post television columnist, was not impressed by the way either President Bush or Sen. John Kerry used the medium that became the message in the hands of such TV titans as John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. Shales finds, ``George W. Bush, the recumbent incumbent, about as exciting on TV as a sock puppet...'' and ``John Kerry, a man with less channelable charisma than Wolf Blitzer.''...So ``whatever happens on Election Day, we can't realy blame television. Not this time. The fault is in our stars, dear Brustus - not the glass screen through which we see them.''
