ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I cannot remember the last time I watched a political debate. This is because the presidential debates long ago got transformed into a bad reality-TV show. That is a political fact of life. What amazes me is why the Republican Party would subject itself to whatever the mainstream media wants to throw at it.

After a time you begin to wonder about the political competence of the Republicans. Did you really think putting on a left-wing debate clown show directed by the most shallow and incompetent questioners would actually enhance your stature within the body politic? To the Republican Party, I say this: Either you figure out how to hold a grown-up debate and present it to the public, or you should abandon the process altogether. The current set-up does not serve the segment of the public that is actually looking for substance, and it certainly does not serve the Republican Party.
