FINAL VERDICT: ONLY A VERY MEDIOCRE SHOWING FOR TRUMP, POOR FOR LESTER, WHILE HILLARY DID HER THING..

I SIMPLY CANNOT FALL IN LINE WITH ALL THE WEEKS-LONG MEGA-HYPE ABOUT THE HILLARY-DONALD DEBATE TONIGHT. Yes, Yes, on the surface, in the media and Fox News, it's the most talked about, potentially explosive and interesting happening in modern political history. But like the complete predictability of the Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie yawning split, it will get dull faster than a snowstorm melting in July.
I certainly will be there watching, at least for a little while, until the scripting and canned responses start to act like melatonin on my mind. Actually, I think there may be more interesting and fun things to see and hear in the last of the three debates near the end when the gloves come off and one or the other has nothing left to lose. I certainly could be wrong about this, and often am.
Nonetheless, the word deplorables should not slip from Hillary's lips and Megyn better have on a great outfit since she's not moderating. Time will tell.
