Can we all agree that the GOP debate was the top  news and entertainment show this week?

Can we all agree that who won and who lost is probably dependent of who you were backing before the debate took place?

Can we all agree that, to our amazement, the biggest winner was not any of the 10 candidates but the three people asking the questions? They stayed away from some important topics, but at least they didn’t just lob softballs all night.

Can we all agree that Donald Trump doesn’t seem to care who he insults?

Can we all agree that the JV-debate beforehand was a waste of time?

Can we all agree that the divisions in the GOP were on full display?

Can we all agree that Jeb Bush was probably the real loser since he did little to separate himself from the rest of the pack? The fact that he looked stiff and unprepared did not help either.

Can we all agree that it’s a shame that we will not have a chance to get Jon Stewart’s take on the GOP show?

Can we all agree that we owe a debt of thanks to Mr. Stewart for showing us all how to be political cynics?

Can we all agree that it’s amazing there could be a two-hour debate without one word on income inequality, race relations, Citizens United or climate change? Just ask Bernie Sanders.

Can we all agree that despite the GOP predictions that we are headed in the wrong direction, an additional 215,000 jobs in one month is a pretty good direction?

Can we all agree that the timing of Sen. Chuck Schumer’s announcement that he would oppose the Iran nuclear treaty was deliberate, probably in the hope that no-one would notice?

Can we all agree that the battle over the Iran treaty is far from over?

Can we all agree that the funding battle over Planned Parenthood may be the biggest red herring ever concocted by the GOP?

Can we all agree that it’s about time the administration took on the coal lobby over power plant emissions?

Can we all agree that there will be no winners in the ‘Deflategate’ controversy and that both sides have an interest in paying attention to the judge, and settling the case – quickly?
