I decided not to watch the GOP debates tonight because if I have to hear these guys talking en mass for two hours, my head will explode. Instead, although I was hoping to post this sooner, I am posting the tweets I did live during the Democratic Presidential debates a couple of weeks ago. In the contest between the two debates, I think the substance spoken in Vegas is far better than the clown-car wreck going on in Colorado.

The links aren’t live (as far as I know) but please note our NEW Twitter handle. You can follow us on Twitter at TheologynAction

  3. Theology In Action ‏@TheologynAction  23h

    Good point. Wondering if he missed an opportunity to show himself. #DemDebate #DemocraticDebate
    James Cook @BBCJamesCook
    Bernie Sanders sounds passionate and fired-up but that can come across on television as a bit “shouty”. #DemDebate

    So much easier to bicker about where one stood on the post 9/11 wars ten and twelve years ago than to say what to do about Syria today
