The pundits are offended this morning because Trumpf made reference to his penis size.
Frank Bruni of the New York Times called it a “vulgar debate.”
I’m not being cheeky. I’m not being shocking. I’m noting something that we cannot lose track of, should not shrug our shoulders about and must not gloss over: Trump has succeeded at nothing as fully as he has at infusing the presidential race with a vulgarity that’s absolutely breathtaking.
He has done so well at dragging his rivals so far down into the sewer with him that portions of what we watched on Thursday night were a fetid farce. We actually witnessed an interchange — in the first 10 minutes, no less — about how well endowed (or not) he is.
David Brooks must be in tears over how impolite it was.
Calls for mass deportations, as all the Republican candidates have made?
And Obama has carried out.
Calls for perpetual war, as the three leading Republican candidates have made?
Appeals to racism?
Bt nothing upsets them quite as much as a stupid penis joke.
