Republican debate turns dirty

MJ Lee (CNN Politics, 04/03/2016)

Donald Trump opened the GOP debate here by boasting about the size of his genitals. He responded to recent comments from Marco Rubio in which the Florida senator joked about the size of Trump's hands and said "you know what they say about men with small hands."

Schneiderman, New York’s Attorney General, that it was a scam operation that bilked each student out of as much as thirty-five thousand dollars. After watching the spot, you are forced to wonder why on earth the Bush, Rubio, and Cruz campaigns didn’t put out something like it six months ago.
That’s a question for the campaign historians to answer. The immediate question is whether the “Never Trump” movement can succeed. For at least a couple of reasons I am deeply skeptical.
