Rubio & Cruz's media-bashing; Kasich's outrage; Fiorina's fantasies; Paul's invisibility; Huckabee's desperation; Carson's befuddlement; Christie's horseshit; and Bush's relative silence. Good night, Jeb, and so long.
(Oh, and Trump's "That's not a nice question." And that makes 33.)
This was at first amusing. It is rapidly slipping into the very depressing. To think that these clowns are of the party of Abe Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower. But, that's in name only; that party no longer exists — and these wretched minutes, ticking away so painfully, are proof of it.
… Well, it's finally, mercifully over. I was in acute despair listening to such abundant folly. And I don't know why. I'm plenty used to it, but there was something about tonight's government-bashing — it's bad, government is all bad, it's wicked and malicious and a deliberate torment — that was indescribably disturbing and, as previously noted, deeply depressing. To call the thinking we just heard "shallow" is to be wildly charitable. It was but podium-to-podium pandering to the worst instincts of an already diseased base. It was an abomination, and it was sickening.
