That sucker really sucked.

Last night’s leaders’ debate sucked. The format sucked. The questions sucked. And the commentary REALLY sucked. Reporters were complaining that there was no “knock out punch,” that none of the leaders really presented their positions.

Could it be because they were given only 30 SECONDS(!) to answer questions?

“So, Kevin Taft, what is your policy on child care? You’ve got 30 seconds.”

No wonder nobody could say anything. The format prohibited it. Even the free-for-all segments didn’t allow for real engagement with issues.

That’s an hour-and-a-half I’ll never get back. Absolute waste of time, space, money, and energy.
