Yes, I Missed the Debates

The one person who did well in the first round of the debates tonight--the also-rans--was the sole woman, former HP CEO Carly Fiorina. She is articulate in interviews, but she is not qualified to be president. Of course her political beliefs are mostly on the wrong side.

Because most of the rest of the candidates are idiots, and she is not, she came across as halfway intelligent.

More about her performance:

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina landed the evening’s first real blow, responding to Martha MacCallum’s question about “the huge disparity between the poll numbers that [Donald Trump] has and the numbers you have” by insisting that Trump’s not “getting the better of her.”

“I don’t know,” she said, “I didn’t get a phone call from Bill Clinton before I jumped in the race. Did any of you guys get a phone call from Bill Clinton? I didn’t.”

In other words, is Donald Trump a stalking horse for Hillary Clinton?
