ROGER SIMON: END THIS TEDIOUS DEBATE ROAD SHOW NOW
IT'S BEEN A VERY LONG DAY for ending careers. Both Graham Spainer, president of Penn State, and Joe Paterno famed PS football coach have been fired effective immediately due to fallout from the horrendous child sex abuse scandal there. Then Texas governor Rick Perry stumbled badly in tonight's presidential debate, and most likely will never recover from his frozen gaffe. In all three cases, it may have been a while in coming, but in the end, it was over very quickly.
Sobering how quickly life and aspirations can turn on a dime. Meanwhile, mayhem and riots have broken out at Penn State tonight, while this one is on the way out.
