A GOP “Debate”? Or a SNL Skit?


I *tried* to watch the Republican debate last night. I really, really did. But I only made it 30 minutes or so before I had to turn away…and check back in on it thoughout the night.

I couldn’t help feeling I was watching a Saturday Night Live skit- hell, even half the field, especially Trump, Christie, Cruz, Bush, andPaul looked more like charachters then candidates. And thee old SNL tag line “The not ready for prime time players” kept reverberating through my head”, as it seemed the perfect tagline for the field of candidates.

And I am still undecided whether CNN did an appalingly bad job with this debate, or did a truly sublime job of recognizing what they had to work with, and showcasing the circus.

And I must wonder if the rest of the world was laughing? Or shaking in fear or disgust?

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.

    After a period of unproductive banter, Kasich said if I were watching this at home, I would turn it off. Here is the nonpartisan fact check report which is telling: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/factchecking-the-cnn-republican-debate/ar-AAeoTPP?ocid=DELLDHP

    We had another engagement, so didnt get to watch the circus. After reading news accounts today, and the like that BTG provided above, it doesnt appear that we missed very much. I’ve said before that the 16 RepubliCANTS on stage have a lot a breadth, but lack any depth.
