Apparently even the people facilitating and participating in the Republican debates are getting tired of them. In a video featured at Mediaite, Fox News anchor and debate moderator Chris Wallace says that the decision to have 19 Republican debates is “ridiculous” and “insane.”

In an interview with radio host Mike Gallagher, Wallace expressed his frustration with having to ask the same questions of the candidates over and over as well as having to hear them repeat the same things about themselves. “Why on earth did they think it was good to have nineteen debates?” he asked, saying “they’re all stupid” and that people are only tuning in for the same reason that some people watch high-speed car racing, because they hope to see a crash.
