Last night’s Dem Debate was an unmitigated unmoderated mess.
Nobody knocked Bernie out. He was rattled, but stood tall. Lizzie got her long-awaited revenge against Mayor Mike for backing her rival Scott Brown in the Massachusetts Senate race. Mike himself went from an F to a D- . Bloom is off that rose. The rest of the field cross-talked and yelled a lot. Pundits are saying it was Biden’s best night. If that was a best night, Trump’s got it made in the shade.
Frank Bruni NYTimes Pick.
Democrat Debate Night again. This time on the Las Vegas strip. NBC moderators. They hate Bernie according to Vanity Fair. So will the questions to him be fair? Can Amy & Lizzie come out swinging? Will Joe rope-a-dope? Will Mayor Pete join Mayor Mike on the box?
Do or die for Bloomberg as he joins the fray. All punches will be going his way. Can he take the incoming with confidence and sharp jabs?
Fingers crossed while swigging a Big Gulp.
Over on PBS. On the impeachment margin. Did you know? There was a Democrat debate tonight. Boring as hell.
Mayor Pete did spar with Lizzie & Amy. They tore him up. Not pretty. Klobuchar strong. Her best night. Warren a bit off her game. Biden still senile. Yang made some futuristic points which nobody on the stage understood. Steyer is creepy. Bernie. Always Bernie. Other than that. Boring as hell.
Advantage Trump. Mayor Mike!! Oprah! Where are you?
Tonight’s Democrat debate on CNN is considered the lighter-weight bout. With Warren and Sanders at center ring. As the most progressive, they will spar with moderate candidates. I’d describe the major contenders on the undercard as follows:
Bernie Sanders – Cranky yet consistent
Elizabeth Warren- Breathless yet authentic
Pete Buttigieg- Youthful yet brilliant
Amy Klobuchar- Nervous yet earnest
Beto O’Rourke- Idiocyncratic and erratic
Chaotic mess. Advantage Trump.
Quote of the night. Biden- “MY TIME IS UP”
Cackalacky cackles. Hillary’s guffaws v. Bernie’s laws in the South Carolina debate. Preachy yelly. Painful telly. Hurts my neck. Yes. The Repubs are hectoring petulant adolescents. But, the Dems are pedantic lecturing bores. Loonbats v. Moonbats. Wall Street sucks. Unless they give them bucks. What?! Bernie & Donald have something in common? They don’t get funding from those hedge scum whores. This election cycle only Advil scores. Downton snores.
Football games weren’t that great, either. But, hey. Three out of four.
