Tonight’s debate is going to go like this.
Moderator to Mike Pence: Donald Trump said x Will you denounce him?
Moderate to Tim Kaine Gov Kaine, Can you explain why Gov Pence should have denounced Donald Trump?
Moderator to Tim Kaine: Gov Kaine are the attacks on Hillary Clinton sexist?
Moderator to Mike Pence: Gov Pence, will you denounce your sexist attacks on Hillary Clinton?
Tonight debate is going to be like the old joke about the Soviets from the cold war, where an American is speaking to a Russian saying:
“Our country is free, we can criticize and protest our government and president, without fear of retaliation.”
and the Russian turns back to him and says: Our country is free too, we an criticize an protest your government an president without fear of retaliation too!”
Of course as any tea party member or contributor who has suddenly found themselves audited by the IRS will tell you that’s no longer the case in the Obama years and such behavior if rewarded by Hillary Clinton’s election will become the norm.
