Eugene Robinson's piece in today's WaPo describes the Rebunglecan presidential field, as seen in last week's press confer ... er, "debate," as wide but not deep. On first look (and last, we might add), the field said "country club" to Robinson. We noted the stature deficit prior to the debate ("The Hour-and-a-Half Comedy Hour"). No wonder the Rebunglecan base is dissatisfied with their choices. As Robinson notes,
"Try as each man might to cloak himself in Reagan's mantle, it didn't seem to fit. As candidates, they all seemed to have some growing to do."
Yeah. And keep in mind "Reagan's mantle" is only a toddler's small.
