It looks like your Sunday long read! It is worth it since we go over some of the best polling concerning who “won” the third debate. There are a few surprises and a few confirmations of our impressions. Let me know what you think of the findings in comments! Have a good Sunday, y’all!
The best thing about Day 1 of the second Dem presidential primary debate is that it uncorked a pent-up snark stream of sarcastic and profane observations. I make predictions about the future of the candidates and report to you what I found to be important.
Day 1 of the second Democratic Primary Debate is a wrap. It was spicy and feisty, but substantial. There were lines — I wrote the damn bill! Why do people run for president to say what we can’t do?
Here is my blow by blow. I’ll be writing up impressions in a separate post.
The Dems presidential candidates were debating on day 2 of their first debate. It was Rock ‘Em, Sock ‘Em Robots for much of the debate. There is but one question, though, who won? Get the psysplainer for how to interpret the outcome of day 2’s debate!
It’s another American presidential election, which started more than 18 months before the actual election! American politics are crazy. But, the Dems are debating tonight and we all wanna know who won, who zung, who clung, who hung. I’ll be live-blogging the debate as it is live-streamed in Paris at 3:00 AM. Join me here for a snarky, sarcasticky, profaney good time as we all watch together!
