Below is the report from WMCTV who aired the debate.
Commercial Appeal writer and debate questioner Wendi C. Thomas was truly perplexed by the whole Mongo scene.
And Lindsey at the Commercial Appeal, did a fine job of stitching several perspectives together, including yours truly.
I still have mixed feelings about the whole scene, and despite the comic relief brought by Mongo and the embarrassment I felt for a few others, it was a good introduction. That said, I think we know who the viable candidates are and next time we can separate the wheat from the chaff. There’s no need to make this process any more of a sideshow than if already is.
