Is America ready for a boring president?

Nearly two decades ago, The Onion printed one of its funniest, most-memorable headlines ever: “Marilyn Manson Now Going Door-To-Door Trying To Shock People.”

“Stung by flagging album sales and Eminem’s supplanting him as Middle America’s worst nightmare,” the satirical story began, “shock rocker Marilyn Manson has embarked on a door-to-door tour of suburbia in a desperate, last-ditch effort to shock and offend average Americans.”

I thought about that story on Thursday night while watching President Trump tangle with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie.

For Americans who spent the evening flipping back-and-forth between the dueling town halls featuring Trump on NBC and former Vice President Joe Biden on ABC, a contrast between the two presidential candidates was clear.
