I can't resist the urge to repost comedian Andy Borowitz's insight:

"Other countries care for their mentally ill. It seems cruel to just let them wander around Iowa."

Marvin - we share the same Rogues Gallery.
Farah is the only publisher in existence who actually threw Ann Coulter off his speakers schedule because he felt she was too liberal for addressing a group of gay republicans.
Jerome Corsi's efforts to prove Obama's foreign birthplace culminated in his book being pulled off the shelves within a few days of the release of Obama's authenticating documents.

Different-the debate is far more harmful to the public than the criminals.

@Marvin, you may not realize this, but ION runs six back-to-back episodes of Criminal Minds pretty much every night!  I say, pretty much because they sometimes run day-long Criminal Minds marathons. 

But I agree with @Noreen that we can make the best of what we have!  All we have to do is start referring to the Republican candidates as unsubs and the rest is right out of central casting:  Zealous government agency forever being jeopardized by budget cuts...Check!  Paranoid multiple personalities wreaking havoc on unsuspecting small Midwestern towns...Check!  Pathological liars...Check!  Clever masters of disguise with fake hairpieces...Check!

Really the only difference is that Criminal Minds wraps up neatly in an hour's time, while we have another YEAR to go with the Republicans.

Hmmm...Criminal Minds or the Republican debate. Are you sure those are two different things?
