On All Platforms

The speed of light is much faster than the speed of sound which is why so many people seeking office can look good until you hear what they have to say. 

We'll get our chance to test this theory tonight at nine when Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, the Democratic and Republican candidates for the office of the President of the United States have their first debate, moderated by Lester Holt of NBC News. If you needed my identification of either candidate in order to know who they were, do us all a favor and don't watch and then in November, don't vote. 

I've made my unhappiness at the selection in this election very obvious for a long time. Please don't get me wound up on the exclusion of both Gary "Where's Aleppo?" Johnson and Jill "anti-vaxxer" Stein (hopefully they'll both be watching tonight and will learn something). 


Over the weekend, Kim Kardashian announced she is supporting Mrs. Clinton and Senator Ted Cruz announced he will endorse Mr. Trump after explaining some months ago he could never support someone who insulted both his wife and his father. In light of how both these 'celebrities' make me feel (hint: it's not 'pretty, oh so pretty,' though it rhymes with that word), I'm thinking it's a wash.  

If you believe there's no difference between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and that your choice has been reduced to the lesser of two weasels, you may be right but this is what it is and these two are the choices. No, I'm not smiling as I type that. Watch tonight for substance and the presence of thought and facts in the answers and we'll talk again soon.
