So I'll be honest, I did not listen to or watch the debates the other night on Fox. I feel like the entire thing has been brought to hysterics and over the top antics trying to gain the apparent strength of a tea party inspired electorate. Even the people I would consider listening to have chosen to pander to irrational. That being said, my news feeds have been filled with sound bites and commentary. Most were silly, at times comical, claims of purity in the small government except to enforce morality hypocrisy. However, one bit stood out to me and reminded me of the sad state of politics in this country.
