We tuned into the Republican debates for about ten minutes last night, and after the second or third mention of banking, turned it off. So we’re really just guessing here. It’s a little hard to take a debate seriously when it’s presented by Fox Business and the Wall Street Journal, in a broadcast that coordinates ads for the movie 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi with jabs at Hillary Clinton. It’s as absurd as watching a “Democratic Debate” softball session with Rachel Maddow, as spoofed on SNL:
The suggestion by any of these candidates that they would regulate banking was the dealbreaker though; it’s hard to imagine any of these well-financed candidates actually tackling the great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money, as it is sometimes referred to. Looking forward to better debates.
