Several of the candidates had a rough weekend. O’Malley got booed off the stage. Sanders has now acquired the hash tag #berniesoblack and Trump seems to have inserted foot in mouth once too often. Hillary stayed well out of the fray, while everyone else rather languished in the disinterest of the Sunday shows or tried to figure out how to respond to the wilder goings on. Ahead lies the first of the GOP debates and which ten will manage to stagger to the stage. Any commentary on the tangled web this political scene has become are more than welcome.
