Money line in the 9 o'clock debate

"The skin doesn't make us who we are; the hair doesn't make us who we are."

- Dr. Ben Carson


  1. FH Take from Robert Reich's facebook page:

    Last night's Republican debate lived down to my expectations. Here were the ten leading candidates for the Republican nomination for President of the United States, displaying an ignorance and vacuousness unparalleled in modern times. The mere possibility that one of them might ascend to the highest office in the land, at a time when America is besieged by record inequality, grinding poverty, a shrinking middle class, billionaires who have more political power than at any time since the robber barons of Gilded Age of the 19th century, a world environmental catastrophe in the making, and the possibility of nuclear weapons falling into the hands of global terrorists -- that possibility is almost as terrifying as anything I've ever witnessed in American politics.
