Finally, All Grown Up.

I watched the CNN Republican Debate. It was surprisingly more substantive and issue-driven than anything the entertainment arm of the Fox News Network has served up thus far.

Here are a few random observations:

Kasich – the guy with the fewest delegates – got the first question; why, CNN? So he wouldn’t feel bad? I still can’t imaging voting for him for president, he can’t even get a decent haircut. The same could be said of Trump of course, who still has the funkiest hair on stage, butt since he gets the billionaire exemption that rule doesn’t apply to him. I know, I know – that isn’t fair; life’s not fair. Deal with it.

That’s just my opinion, and I know others would still leave Marco in the semi-final running for that honor:

Other issues covered last night included Immigration, Free Trade, H1B visas, Common Core, Social Security, Climate Change, ISIS and Radical Islam, Israel (Trump actually got booed for saying he was Pro-Israel – when did that rotten sentiment take hold of the Republican party?) Climate Change, Cuba.  A little more protein than the standard fare of body size, body parts and size-of-body-parts served up at the debates hosted by the home team. And it was nice to see all the boys acting like adults for a change; although that eliminates Kasich’s one and only advantage.


He’s now down to hugs, balancing the budget in Ohio and being the son of a mailman. Although he did have the funniest line of the night: “My record speaks for itself,” as he launched into a 5 minute dissertation on it. Unfortunately for John, if his record really did speak for itself he wouldn’t have anything to say.

There was a moment or two where you could see The Donald tempted to go off the rails before remembering that he had vowed to act more presidential and reeled himself back in for the duration. Now he better work on reeling his supporters back in.

Butt enough of that, check out last night’s competing entertainment: the State Dinner for Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau:


In lieu of attending Nancy Reagan’s funeral Barry sent himself a funeral arrangement.

And I guess it’s official, the wee wons are now all grown up and allowed to attend State Dinners:


Are these Mommy’s little girls or what?

*In chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state. - Wiki
