BOOM!

The last time wasn't much fun for him because real people were asking real questions from their own real lives and real experiences.

I think Wallace's problem is he's been in the Pox Noise bin for far too long. He treated trump with almost abnormal deference, and cut him WAY too much slack, until the last third of the debate, when he finally started - uh - "speaking up" "assert control" to be the damn debate moderator and do his damn job! His meekly mewling "Mr. President... Mr. President..." was NEVER gonna work. Because nobody tells donald what to do. Not even somebody from "trump TV."

I kept thinking - "you've been around trump THIS LONG, as a member of his "most-favored network", and you STILL haven't caught on about this guy yet? What would your father, Mike Wallace - the red-meat roaring lion of "60 Minutes", have said?

Of course he would!

McCarthy has rocks in his ears - and in his head.

I’d add “and in his heart” - if he had one. But he’s a republi-CON. They tend to be deficient in that category.

That'd work.

Intimidation. Remember: their would-be boss wants domination.

And will demand nothing less.

The timer running out would have to kill his mic.

But that likely wouldn’t stop him either.

About calimary

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.
