Candidate Marketing

Moderated by Chris Wallace

BY: Frater Bovious – September 2020

“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:

In first Trump-Biden debate, US will finally see its ...
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.

  1. LOL! Well, in France there is a teacher covered entirely in tattoos who has had his eye-whites rendered solid black. He lost the Kindergarten job thanks to some poor little soul telling his mom how scary Teach is — but is still allowed to teach 6-year olds and up. (What a gain!) Plus, it was France who de-hijab’d a Muslim woman on a public beach, right? I’m going back to Ireland. The Irish part of it!

      1. He said maybe it’s one way to get people to not judge people based on their appearance. Well, that is one way. I myself, even at this age, would just as inconspicously grab the bottle of Holy Water from my sill.
