Civility Is Boring

I guess everyone was taking pot shots at Bernie Sanders at the last debate. Seems like the Democrats are trying to eat each other. Ugly stuff.

And all Trump has to do is sit back and gleefully watch.

The debates could be opportunities for getting a handle on the candidates’ plans and positions. But what gets seared into the memory banks often enough is the nonsense- the yelling and arguing, the talking over each other, the need to be heard over everyone else. Another format is needed, one-on-one with an interviewer, where the candidates can respond in peace yet still be challenged, yet unencumbered by the need to compete for attention.

It’d be better than what amounts to a noisy 1st grade class room. That’s hard to watch, though probably better for ratings.
