No train wreck
Well, I admit it, like most NASCAR fans, I tuned in last night in hopes of seeing a 10 car crash but got another snore-fest instead. I don't know if I can take two more of these "debates." Whatever these things are, they certainly aren't debates; they're more like really long infomercials with no video footage or third-party endorsements. I didn't learn anything new, neither candidate revealed any new character flaws of significance -- what was gained here? And this is the format the networks gave us. The debates were a lot more interesting when the League of Women Voters ran them, which gives you some insight into why no one watches network TV anymore.
