Demeanor-wise, they lived up to their caricatures. Squirrel-Hair was smug and petty, Madame BleachBit was by turns cold and shrill.
A huge frustration for me was the fact that S-H didn't respond to BB's proud reiterations of her redistributionist proposals (hiking the minimum wage and estate tax, achieving "equal pay" for women, "investing in infrastructure") with solid free-market-based refutations, opting instead to talk about what he perceives to be crummy trade deals with other countries. That's because S-H has no grounding in free-market principles.
There were the expected why-won't-you-release-this-that-and-the-other-documents volleys, which have come to be customary at these spectacles. That's a shame, because BleachBit's emails fall into a category of significance above the usual tax-return clamoring.
Identity politics was sadly but inevitably a prominent theme.
S-H was a true-to-form bonehead in his "that's called business" response to BB's charge that he viewed the housing collapse opportunistically.
All in all, it made me embarrassed to be a post-American, just as I'd expected.
