Nope. Didn't watch the first or second debate.
Because it doesn't matter to me.
At best, these debates are 7 months before the Georgia primary in which I'll be voting. I don't own a landline, and I'm on the Do Not Call List on my cell phone. Add to that, very few campaigns or organizations call cell phones for opinion polls, so what happens in the next few months doesn't matter to me. Or most every other American.
There's about 3,000 people who are going to decide, in the next few months, who to cull from the herd of GOP contenders based on campaign or news organization polls because they fit the profile for polling, and I am not in that group of people, so to watch even one second of these early debates is a waste of my time.
Let's face it, of the 15 people on stage during the main event or at the Kiddie Table early debate, more than half of them will be long gone by the time some real debates come around in early 2016. THAT'S when I'll be paying a bit more attention to debates. THAT'S when I can spend some quality time researching the remaining candidate's websites and records and past public stances on issues that matter to me. Right now, these debates aren't even good television.
But for now, I'm laughing at all the coverage being given to this process of eliminating a bunch of egotistical SOB's who wouldn't be allowed in my house for dinner for any reason on any given day.
Hi! I'm Dave Richard, your host. I hope you enjoy your visit. We'll be talking about current events, politics, the occasional sports (I'm a HUGE New England Patriots fan, so get over it), and some "Get off my lawn!" issues.
