I did watch the Republican Presidential debate last week. I enjoyed it and found it very helpful and informative. I was so entertained that I decided that all the debating candidates deserved a prize. Since I intentionally did not watch any post-debate talking heads, I created and awarded them relying on my own judgment – as limited and biased as it may be. I awarded the following prizes:
- MOST SENSIBLE AND MATURE
- BEST BBQ GUEST
- CUTEST HOMECOMING KING
- MOST POTENTIAL
- BEST BEDSIDE MANNER
- BEST BRIDGE SALESMAN
- MOST PLEASANTLY ABSURD
- BEST AT BLOVIATING
I am not going tell you to whom I awarded which prize. You can make your own call.
