Last Dem Debate before Iowa Caucuses.
Will Lizzie Warren bait Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. That’ll be her Ber Den. As they go after each other Mayor Pete can parry from his deck chair. Amy may be lured into the fray with too much tension on the line. Steyer will haul in plastic bottles and scream about climate change. Yang rushes in to clang the bell as AI bots take over the ship.
Wolf sporadically yells over the horn. This is Breaking News!!!!!
Fifth Democrat Debate.
Mayor Pete got his test. Tulsi took him on. He rallied. But. Did not close the deal. So. Against Trump? Joe waffled but didn’t pass out in a puddle. Tom Steyer got too much time. Kamala fakes accent. Amy shaky but funny. Elizabeth too dependent on Fed Gov’t to solve the country’s ills. Yang refreshing. Booker black-ish. Bernie consistent.
Bottom line. Nobody elicited excitement. Pretty boring.
Dems are complaining about everybody. Nobody measures up.
Buttigieg doesn’t appeal to people of color.
Warren’s policies are too far left.
Bernie is a self-proclaimed Socialist.
Biden is against legalizing marijuana.
Kamala’s campaign is in shambles.
Bloomberg is phony on stop & frisk.
Deval is a Wall Street darling.
Cory is for charter schools.
Amy is just boring.
Yet they want you to vote. Not for any of these people. Just against Trump. Good luck with that.
Debates done. Take-away. Pre-game speech by Garlin Gilchrist. There’s the political guy of the future. Michigan’s Lt. Governor. He slayed.
After two nights of scrappy scrums. Elizabeth Warren the most energetic and authentic. Crisp and clear in her policies and beliefs. The losers. Moderate Democrats. Therefore. The big winner. Trump.
The only answer is Oprah. My comment a New York Times Pick.
Chaotic mess. Advantage Trump.
Quote of the night. Biden- “MY TIME IS UP”
Breakout- Julián Castro
Stayed the course- Elizabeth Warren
Assertive- Bill deBlasio
Most improved- Cory Booker
Lost ground- Beto O’Rourke
Muddled- Amy Klobuchar
The other four
Debates? Nevermind. July 17. Save the date.
Caterer Alert. Anchor the catamarans. Carry the kegs back from the sand. Hamptons watch parties planned. If the resistance is real summer sojourns to Italy & Greece have been rescheduled.
Charcoal & steaks will be replaced by House committees grilling the Special Counsel. Obstruction. Collusion. Steele Dossier. Lovers Peter & Lisa. Must see TV. So. Pop a can. It’s Mueller Time!
