“Judging by the response of recent audiences,” reads a Sept. 25 editorial in the Concord Monitor, “the next Republican presidential primary debate should be held in a reproduction Roman coliseum, the proper venue to cheer the execution of one's fellow human beings.”
The editorial concludes, “The most disturbing aspect of the WrestleMania behavior at the debates is not that some audience members booed a soldier and many cheered death. It's that not one Republican candidate, and there were nine on the stage on Thursday, spoke up to admonish the crowd and call for civility. Not one candidate, in situations that cried out for it, exhibited leadership.”
That summary inspired this “Not One Candidate” video, distributed by the DNC.
