It’s August 7, 2015 and time for Friday Yes or No, when I answer the burning questions of the day with unusual (for me) brevity:
Q1: Does Fox News really, really, really want Fabulous Donny Trump out of the Republican race?
Q2: Despite having all the money he needs to spend on advisers, did Fabulous Donny Trump do any more than 2 seconds of preparation for last night’s debate in Cleveland?
Q3: Did Fox News overcompensate for years of shilling for the GOP by asking a lot of gotcha questions, the plurality of which were directed at Fabulous Donny Trump?
Q4: Was Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s debate performance more suitable for the fall 2016 debates with the Democratic nominee than for a debate for the Republican faithful?
Q5: Was it a good idea for Jeb Bush to associate himself proudly with Michael Bloomberg in a debate targeted at an audience that hates gun control and loves the right to drink 40 ounces of Mountain Dew?
Q6: Are there too many questions in this post about an intraparty debate that’s half a year before the Iowa caucus and 15 months before Election Day?
Q7: Was Jon Stewart’s last “Daily Show” as much fun to watch as Stephen Colbert’s last “Colbert Report” or David Letterman’s last “Late Show.”?
Q8: Should President Obama tone down his campaign for Congressional support of the Iran nuclear deal after saying that Republican opponents are acting in concert with Iranian radicals?
Q9: One year after the shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer, has life for African-Americans in Ferguson, Mo., improved significantly?
Q10: Are the Amazin Mets for real?
