Republican “debates”…

February 26, 2016

the pubescent locker room revisited….

I give the pundits and talking heads a little credit for their effort to make a silk purse out of a sows ass, but it is what it is. I also note their significant culpability for fanning the flames.

This is the most “non” election I recall seeing, and I’ve seen a few. I almost forget what the issues are. It seems this one, at least the Republican nomination part of it, will be won on more subjective scores. It reminds me of those spontaneous pubescent locker room assaults and just walking down the street “noogies” that signal the onset of male hormone toxicity where points are accrued according to “mother cuts”, crotch fights, and general ability to verbally disembowel and castrate the opponent. It’s hard to watch, so I don’t. And this isn’t so much about mentality the alleged candidates as it is about the sanity of the voters who seem to be enthralled with it, reminiscent of the public torture and executions of people who pissed off the king back in the Middle Ages.

I suspect great commonality between those days and today in that the monarchs and despots of history put on such theater to distract the people from whatever was actually going on in the country.
