Attention Reporters: Synchronize Your Watches

We’d like all D.C media personnel to take a second and synchronize their stopwatches. There are too many disagreements on how long, exactly, Rick Perry‘s Porky Pig moment from last night’s debate lasted.

WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza clocked it at 43 seconds. Politico‘s Jonathan Martin and Alexander Burns put the mark at 45 seconds. Elsewhere, the NYT and The Drudge Report agree it was 53 seconds.

For the sake of clocks, we went back and watched the clip of the Rick Porkey fumble and our verdict is in: 53 seconds of pure, unadulterated awkward.

Watch here.
