Fire up the calliope The ten ring circus has come to town. Tonight is the first of three clown performances by the Anti-Blue Man Group. Some are referring it to as the "Trump Show".
My suggestion for any thinking person is to take off and store your shoes, put away all ashtrays and other heavy objects out of reach, wear only socks and make a barrel full of popcorn. When you have the urge to throw something at your TV, you use the socks and popcorn and not something that will damage the flat screen. Warn your neighbors, if they hear screaming and yelling, not to call the cops. It is only you being unable to control your reaction to what you are seeing and hearing.
Take tonight for what it is, a public relations stunt by the Republicans. Whether or not you agree with their politics, many serious candidates have been excluded, so how can this really be a debate of substance. Fox News has decided who the ten finalists for the Republican candidacy to the most powerful office in the world should be. Fox News is an oxymoron if there ever was one. Rupert Murdock is deciding who will have a 50-50 shot at being POTUS. (In another post soon I will discuss how as owner of the New York Times he is doing the same to the Democrats) He has changed the rules more than once, and the RNC has done nothing to stop him. Does all of this bother you? If doesn't, it should.
