Knowing that everyone would be watching last evening's debate quite studiously (as most would be writing ponderous critiques about it later - if not tweeting during), a dark levity came a-stalking Pottersville. It was almost enough to take that famous stroll with that favorite angel over to that fourth-rate bar and drown our sorrows before getting tossed out for questioning the bona fides of the other customers.
So, just a few necessary comments about tonight's extremely serious Democratic Party debate.
Which turn out to be way more interesting than the debate.
Which was quite civilized and courteous.
Entirely unlike the rest of the campaign.
To which we must continue to be prepared to be subjected.
From that over-the-big-top site Lawyers, Guns & Money:
The real loser in this debate is Anderson Cooper. He tried to get the candidates to fight the whole time. I think Webb is going to punch him afterward though so it might work out.
On the original statements. The first two were way better than the rest.
On the first responses: DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM MENTIONED ON CNN!
also: makes Clinton defend capitalism on tv. hehe.

So who’s participating other than Clinton and Sanders?Never mind, Jordan listed them. Any signs that Biden will suddenly appear, maybe raised through a trapdoor?
(I’d flip channels to check, but the remote is just out my reach, and besides The Brain that Wouldn’t Die is on.)
Warren Terra says:

Pshaw. Zipline, followed by a barechested fistfight to seize the podium from Webb.
Driving his Trans Am onto the stage.
(This is, I think, the only aspect of The Onion’s Biden coverage I find suspect. I’m pretty sure Biden’s more of a bitchin’ Camaro kind of guy.)
That would be pretty funny. Half way through, WWE style music … ENTER THE BIDEN.
Hehe, he just should just somehow cruise through the back of the thing in this. That would also be acceptably awesome.
Gregor Sansa says:
Clinton: ISIS poses a threat to our “friends and neighbors” in the Middle East.
Which neighbors? Because I’m kind of OK with ISIS going after the ones across the street (we call them “the Shrieklingtons”).
