Debate Result

My wife and I had a nice evening doing grocery shopping and ignored the debate.  My conclusion is that the winners are the ones who had something better to do and the losers are the ones who watched the debate.

Then I guess I am a winner, too. :) There was nothing either one of them could say to make me like them.

I have never seen such interest in the American Presidential elections in India as I am seeing now here. It offers a great deal of entertainment and also a topic for dicussions!

@Rummuser, now that is certainly giving me an incentive to take a trip to India to hear the discussions. Inklings and I decided that avoiding the topic was the most constructive option with regard to the debates. On Facebook I see plenty of "nuclear" rhetoric, but have not yet seen any discussions. At work, we are generally too fearful to discuss politics. Then there is the observation of one coworker who lives in Berkeley that he believes Trump supporters are like unicorns: You hear about them but no one has ever seen one in real life. Even at church where the politics is fairly uniform we don't dare to mention a candidate. In my hard left neighborhood, we don't even see bumper stickers discussing politics.

I have to restrain myself considerably, since I am a conservative and the chances of losing a job due to offending PC are now about 100 times greater than the chances of someone who was openly communist losing their job during the McCarthy era. So we bite are tongue and avoid discussing, which is probably why Trump and Hillary didn't discuss either.

Thus, I am envious of you for being able to freely discuss American politics!

Rummuser said...

Oh, we discuss Indian politics freely too. In fact, we harpoon our politicos of all hues quite mercilessly. Most of them don't understand that they are being lampooned anyway!

Hi Looney,

I am a loser then. I watched it the next day and I found it quite entertaining. :)

Cheers
