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?
