Short, Loud, and Outrageous

First… If you’re not watching tonight’s debate, you’re paying attention. Tonight is the first debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. That should be enough to get you to watch.
Second… there is a pre-debate going on about earpieces. Apparently, the Trump Camp asked for a third party inspection of the candidates’ ears to make sure there were no earpieces inserted allowing for outside communication which might assist the master debaters in answering questions.

So hear’s my spin: Brilliant!

This is classic political manuring. If the Biden Camp refuses then it will be assumed he has an earpiece in because he can’t supply his own answers. If they allow it, then he will be on his own upon which he will not be able to supply cogent answers.

Hear’s something to watch for; Trump can defeat the earpiece possibility by keeping all of his answers short, loud, and outrageous. The earpiece only helps 1. If you can hear it, and 2. If you have enough time to receive information before you’re expected to reply. If Trump’s answers/statements are short and loud then Biden will not be able to hear his Cyrano and even if he can he will look like he’s having a mental breakdown while he tries to figure out what is arriving in his ear while the audience awaits. Trump can just stare at him like the rest of the country waiting for him to regurgitate a response. Just a huge pregnant pause while the camera zooms in on Old Joe’s befuddled look while he’s trying desperately to concentrate… and as the train wreck progresses it will look like a cascade of errors.

So there you have it.
