It seems a shame not to comment at all about Wednesday evening’s GOP debate but somehow “unremarkable seems the best adjective for the non-event. Other than a surprisingly low quality of questions raised by CNN, the “surprises” were quite minor. Trump remained pleased with his total ignorance, Cruz still preached at us, and . . . hmmm,. not much point in listing the obvious.
But about those questions: There were two problems in my view. First, CNN seemed deliberately to keep the focus on Trump, which was ridiculous. Two, very, very little of substance was raised.
These debates won’t have much chance of being of any value until the field is narrowed down to three or four. Until then, Republicans are just going to continue looking inept and proving they cannot even manage their own party, let alone a government.
