Pretty Fly for a [very] white guy

The debate started on time, and it rapidly went downhill from there as once again the Republicans decided that the rules were more like suggestions.

Every question that was asked, walking termite buffet and VP Mike Pence would smarmily thank USA Today’s Susan Page (the alleged moderator) for asking and then say whatever the hell he wanted (my favorite being when a question about believing the science of Climate Change devolved into a talk about taxes). When his time was up, he would than manspread over the timeline while Page  would meep. She never tried to put him back on topic, she never asked a follow-up question.

[On Twitter I saw a group of women say almost at once, “Oh. He’s that guy.” ]

Would-be VP and current Senator Kamala Harris was better, but she too realized that she was not going to be repointed to topic or asked a follow-up. She looked straight into the camera (instead of looking at Page as Pence did) and talked to us. It might be a small difference, but it was a good difference.

Rinse and repeat.

You can probably find winners and losers and explanations elsewhere, but I will say that besides Wee the Peeple, the biggest loser is the debate format itself; these debates are as useless as the Sunday Talk Shows.

UPDATE 1: I think this is a joke from Schrödinger’s Senator, the physics paradox known in this dimension as Rand Paul, a man from the multiverse where anything is possible including being elected in the 2016 Goat Rodeo and being elected to the Senate or both or neither can happen at the same time or never:

    Okay I can’t resist; “The Fly” starred Jeff Golblum, Jeff Goldblum was in “The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai Across the 8th Dimension” along with John Lithgow, John Lithgow was in “Footloose” with – that’s right – Kevin Bacon! You’re welcome, I’m gonna take a nap now.

    It only worked partly as a momentary distraction from the snorting, wailing, diseased-ridden, drugged-out, criminal maniac who live-twitted over his flaccid surrogate during the ‘debate’ and who will suck up all the oxygen over the next 26 days until We The People get to finally end this shitshow once and for all.

    When they negotiated the plexiglass they didn’t say anything about support animals.
