Yes, I’m talking about the point where Donald Trump gleefully repeats the woman who called Ted Cruz a p*ssy. And yes, I know that we all – and that includes Presidential candidates – know the word. But here’s the thing: there’s nothing brave or transgressive about that little routine. If Donald Trump wants to call Ted Cruz a p*ssy, he should come out and openly say so. But playing it out that way was just passive-aggressive, *I*-didn’t-say-that deniable dreck that I normally associate with progressive suckweasels.
Seriously, be PC or not PC as you please, but don’t coarsen the debate unless you’re prepared to own it. That was not owning it. That was faking it.
