No, I'm not talking about Clint Eastwood's Dada performance at the Republican National Convention last week.
I speak, instead, of a debate scheduled Thursday night that will pit Congressman David Cicilline against his Democratic primary challengers - businessman Anthony Gemma and perennial fringe candidate Chris Young.
Gemma's theatrics are front of mind for many - I've been trying dresses on my Gordon Fox and Helio Melo dolls for the better part of two weeks now; nothing looks quite right.
And the fireworks that erupted between Gemma and Cicilline in the last televised debate, on WPRI-TV, had their entertainment value. But the debate, on the whole, was a tense affair.
Young, who did not particpate in the WPRI showdown, promises to add a little light to the proceedings. In previous public appearances he's brandished a Virgin Mary, proposed marriage, and sung of class struggle - a tape recorder providing scratchy musical accompaniment. Eastwood's empty chair will be no match, I am certain, for whatever Young offers next.
YouTube anxiously awaits.
