Subject: re: How the Republican Candidates Fared in the First Debate
To the Editor:
Perhaps this paper's analysts saw a different debate than I did on Thursday. I watched Donald Trump attest to exactly the quid-pro-quo corruption that our Supreme Court opined didn't exist in re Citizen's United. While Trump's testimony may, years hence, move our republic back away from plutocracy and towards legitimacy, it will rank as the worst moment of his campaign--to date--years after his tiff with senator Paul is forgotten.
