An audio post about the many Republican Parties on display Wednesday night
At least most left DeSantis alone so we wouldn't have to pay attention to that fake smile. He is simply incapable of making himself likable.
I concur with most of your assessments. Ramaswamy is alarming. He is oily and he lacks empathy. His denial of climate change when he was a Biology major in college is mind boggling. But most frightening of all is his stance on international relations. Like Trump, he is an autocrat lover. Does he really not know what the results of his policies would be? Unbelievable..
The only thing more mind-warping than last night's circus was the "conversation" I had with coworkers this morning about it.
I agree with your take on Nikki, she looked very presidential, but then I googled her annual pay from the Boeing board seat, and my key issue smacked me in the face, again, the money in politics is a huge problem because your never sure if we are making decisions for the country’s best interests or to enrich the large corporations. One thing I have to hand to these companies, Pharma, Oil, and defense, they spend their money wisely, but I agree with Vivek, “let’s spend that money in Kensington” not to line the pockets of defense contractors To people that say you can do both, first off, well that’s obviously not happening in our cities
Will there be a transcript available, and if so when? thank you.
Thanks for the wrap up. I didn't watch the circus because I don't like inflicting pain on myself and because, barring a fortuitous cheeseburger incident, Trump's going to be the 2024 GOP nominee. As executor of my father's estate I've had the unfortunate opportunity to receive a fund-raising letter from Ramaswamy. It wasn't that much more repulsive than any of the other rightwing propaganda I've received in the several months since my father died but, even in a party of extremists, he struck me as particularly batsh*t crazy.
I appreciate your bringing a bit of levity to what must have been a depressing event. Your description of Pence had me laughing out loud. That he'd support Trump even if he's convicted of felonies--Trump, the guy who set him up to be lynched--says everything about Mr. Sanctimonious. All posture; no integrity. Jesus would be so proud.
Very insightful and much appreciated summary of the debate.
Burgum is governor of North Dakota, goddamnit!! North Dakota is the Rodney Dangerfield of states, I swear to Jah!

I hope this clears up "The Enduring Mystery of the Trump Voter" for you.
If not, there is no hope for you at all.
