Democratic Debate Recap: The Internet Speaketh, The Man Taketh Away

Anyone who knows me at all understands that I am a conservative. I am to the right of Limbaugh. I am also a student of politics and how the media all too often creates the news as opposed to reporting it, like this. . .

The Lonely Tribalist

Last night’s democratic debate can be summed up thusly:

  • Hillary Clinton had cool things to say that made Hillary Clinton fans happy.
  • Bernie Sanders had cool things to say that made Bernie Sanders fans happy.
  • Three other guys were placed on stage as filler.

And this has nothing to do with me having any “like” for CNN.

    The truth is that unless we are right there involved in making the pole we really have no idea how true any of it is. I myself pretty much don’t believe anything that I see on tv unless I was there when it was filmed live and even then only if I had a great vantage point.
