You might have missed the segment in last night’s GOP debate where CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked carefully prepared questions about what America’s industrial policy ought to be. That’s because he didn’t — not that I’m criticizing Wolf, who did much better than the pathetic Brian Williams and hapless John King — but the candidates nevertheless indirectly gave us their own ugly visions.

During Thursday night’s GOP debate, a woman from Florida told the candidates she’d lost her job and with it her health insurance. What would each of the candidates do to get her covered or otherwise provide the health care she needed?

I’m still a bit shocked that people are still surprised that the GOP Presidential Clown Car could roll through South Carolina — the state that gave us nullification, the Civil War, John C. Calhoon, and a hundred and fifty year succession of secessionist, racist politicians — and have it captured by a dog-whistling practitioner of the ugly art of racial and classist demagoguery.

One wouldn’t have expected Lieutenant Pike, the pepper spraying cop, to show up at CNN’s GOP debate. But he made a last minute decision to come to the debate and appeared in the wings during the Pledge of Allegiance, keeping an eye on Ron Paul.
