What’s the deal with this Sanders-Cruz, reality-show debate that CNN is putting on tomorrow night? CNN is certainly promoting it like it’s the next big fight or MMA match, compete with dramatic music in the promos — I wouldn’t be surprised to see them bring in announcer Michael Buffer to kick things off with his trademark introduction (see video).
But seriously, what the hell is the point of this spectacle? It’s not like we don’t have enough on our minds in Washington right now. Or is CNN hoping to break huge news by discovering that Sanders and Cruz have vastly differing views on…. everything?
