Moderated by Chris Wallace

“What is the end of debate?”
“The beginning of an election cycle.”
“Hah, I see what you did there, you equivocated.”
“Oh, is that bad?”
Many years ago I watched presidential debates. I felt it was my duty. Almost as many years ago I quit watching. I quit watching because I realized they were not debates, they were marketing events. Instead of watching the histrionics, I would read the debate transcripts.
From what I can gather from my wife, who watched the entire commercial, and what little I have picked up from social media, this event is only a few years removed from simply being a gladiatorial event with bloodshed. It seems this country is devolving – behold:
The magnificent fury.
To paraphrase Michelle Obama:
For the first time in my life I am really ashamed of my country because it feels like “Idiocracy” is becoming a reality.
Meanwhile, Trump supporters will insist he beat his chest more ferociously, and Biden supporters will note their big silverback’s dominance. The undecided? They may decide to move to France.
