    I agree with Bernie Goldberg that the debate moderators asked salient questions and comported themselves professionally.

    Maybe…just maybe…the media is getting the hint that working for the public good means something other than their being endlessly self-referential.

    I enjoyed the spat between Bush and Trump too. It was spontaneous, unprovoked, and lively. It revealed some interesting strengths and weaknesses in both men — Bush’s sound trait of defaulting to reason and intellect is rendered less clarifying by classist assumptions, and Trump’s leadership and strength is marred by juvenility and intransigence.

    I have a word of advice to candidates (nearly all of them) who rushed to adjure their counterparts that squabbling is what the public hates about DC, etc…. You’d do better to make a Reaganesque quip than to scold.

    read the comments on this article. i won’t tell you what to think, you are quite capable of judging insanity for yourselves.

      The MSNBC fans would’ve followed Jim Jones to Guyana.

        was Jim in the section Maduro wants to absorb? weird country i need to visit.

          I think so. It is in the northwest part of the country, right on the Venezuelan border.

            i could look it up but it has an odd name. it is a creole area. like nica, Belize, CR and panama. in Nicaragua they are still referred to as autonomous zones. in the north that means nobody from the Managua’s government need enter. there are some good movie plots to be had from the Moskitos experiences.

        MSNBC fans are used to drinking kool-aid.

      That was painfully dumb.

        Foamy is getting cranky in his old age.

        • Cecelia

          He was born cranky, but that was just embarrassing.

      • Michael T

        Having one of your MRCTV reporters act like one of Howard Stern’s lackeys is perhaps not a good reflection on the Media Research Center.

        Somewhere Brent Bozell must be both laughing and cringing.

        Given my general dislike for Chris Matthews, I must confess I did laugh when I watched it.

        • Cecelia

          Had it been spontaneous during some sort of exchange that wasn’t just a pretext to hit him with that remark, it could have been funny.
