What Kind of Candy Best Reps Candy?

This week we asked readers to choose between different types of candy to describe the performance of debate moderator CNN’s Candy Crowley on Tuesday night. (Why can’t all polls be this brilliant?) We asked readers to choose among the Jolly Rancher (sweet, sour and an all around ass kicker), Milk Duds (a dud, unfair), the Blow Pop (hard on outside, gum on inside, ie. all things to all people) and Snow Caps (black and white and pro-Obama).

And here’s what you told us.

A predominant 42.2 percent of you declared that Snow Caps best reflect Crowley’s debate behavior. In other words, you said, she’s in the tank for President Obama. Second place goes to the Jolly Rancher — 30.37 percent of you think the world of her. The lowest score (11.8 percent) was for the Blow Pop, which indicated she was imminently fair and all things to all people.
