Anyone watch that dumpster fire last night called the presidential debate? Man, oh, man! Two doddering old fools vying for the White House. Biden was drifting around and the Cheeto-in-Chief showed what a ill-mannered clod he is, but people love that these days in our crude-and-rude culture. I didn't see all of it, popping in and out (after all it wasn't Nixon/Kennedy or even Carter/Reagan), but I saw enough.
Speaking of Nixon/ Kennedy, do yourself a favor and find the first 1960 debate on YouTube. You'll wonder what happened to us as a nation you watch two men respectfully debate each other, men who come across as mature, responsible adults (despite Nixon's make-up meltdown). They both served in World War II and had political experience.
Found it for you!
Cry for us!
