Running comments on Republican debate #4
Fox’s promotional film on Wisconsin didn’t mention Republican Senator Joe McCarthy.
Poor Scott Walker, this was supposed to be his big night.
On the minimum wage:
Trump says wages are too high. We’re losing. Suck it up workers.
Carson thinks $15 per hour wage is a high wage. Loud applause.
Rubio says America is great because it has poor people.
Rubio: “we need more welders and less philosophers.”
You can’t make this stuff up.
Canadian Senator Cruz says: Bold Tax Plan, Booming Growth, Remove Locusts, and Sound Money.
Jeb! is looking for a job too. Lower taxes. Repeal all environmental regulations. More pollution means high growth!
Fiorina: take our government back!
Krugerrand: move to a state with a Republican governor or a city with a Republican mayor.
Said with a straight face.
So far: Hillary bad, Obama bad, Democrats bad, taxes bad, government bad, clean water bad. Poor people good.
Trump: we need borders, we will have a wall, and it will be successful. They’ll have to go out, hopefully, they’ll get back. We’re going to be a country.
Kasich: deportation is not an adult argument.
He’s trying to lose!
Trump: Move them out! We have no choice!
Trump: I’ve made billions! Shut up Kasich, you punk!
Rubio: destroy government, kill the philosophers, and this new century will be a new American century.
This debate is no more informative than the other debates. They say the same things, sometimes louder, sometimes less coherently.
Time for an adult beverage and a reading of Plato’s Republic.
