So, for those of you who aren’t masochistic, you may have skipped the debate last night. Good for you. No seriously. You’re better than I am, and I envy you.
For my part I’m only self loathing enough to watch 1 hour of it before going to bed.
The internet will be full of hot takes from both sides of the aisle today so I’ll spare you the in depth analysis except to make 3 points.
- Screw you Kevin McCarthy. We knew that your quote was going to be turned against the right. You had to know that too. One wonders if you’d like a Hillary presidency and if that was your goal all along. You are a disgrace (rumors of infidelity aside) and frankly, were you my congressman I’d be demanding you resign for being an idiot. Bu you’re not, so let California Have you.
- On that note: Get Bent Bernie Sanders. You may not care about the “damned emails” because while our national security is being blatantly compromised you’re still blathering on about the 1%. Hell, I’d bet as Iran nukes Israel or Russia or China kills off our intelligence agents (exposed by Hillary’s email stupidity) you’d still be more concerned about free public college.
- Finishing that thought, Sanders, you’re walking proof about the lack of introspection that is a requirement to be a socialist. You’re rambling on about the “new aristocracy” created by Citizen’s United while standing right next to a current aristocrat who has acted with impunity in a way that would land a lesser person in jail. Worse you’re defending her. Socialism’s true colors: it’s all about protecting and pampering the political class.
