Third Dem debate

Postby William Thornton » Sun Aug 25, 2019 7:33 am

I can't wait.

The long knives are out:
“I don’t know that anyone even wants to see her on the debate stage. Everyone I have talked to finds her performative and obnoxious,” said a former senior staffer in Gillibrand’s Senate office.

Gillebrat is behind Gabbard and the candidate from Mars. But, hey, donate $1 and she will send you a $30 T-shirt. Democratic economics, I suppose.

Should be entertaining.

I don't know if you can call the Democratic debates "entertaining." Too much policy and too serious to be anywhere near as entertaining as the Republican debates were prior to 2016. All that caterwauling, cat clawing, insulting, name calling, accusations flying about candidate's fathers involvement in the Kennedy Assassination and wives possibly having nude centerfolds floating around, in comparison, and William's comments notwithstanding, the Democratic debates really look like political debates and are pretty tame compared to the loony nut job circus that the Republicans offered. And Biden has a long way to go before his "gaffes" reach the pinnacle of the Rick Perry senior moment and Trump's memory lapses. ... edirect=on

Interesting development there. The Republicans may yet have the opportunity to bring some nut case entertainment to the campaign, though watching Trump lie and contradict himself during rallies is still somewhat entertaining. Walsh is a big time tea nut, er, partier. Not a serious candidate but he'll get some attention and do some big time baiting.

The $30 T-shirt for a $1 donation actually may make sense here. The system is set up so candidates absolutely MUST have a certain minimum number of donors (spread across a certain minimum number of states). If being in the debates is a high priority, then paying $30 (actually T-shirts can be had in quantity for a lot less than that, even now that China is cut off) for one donor may be good strategy.
