Can you feel the excitement? I’m struggling to escape the yawns.
CNN is trying to hype it by having a bingo game. Whenever anyone mentions any other above subjects, you’re supposed to mark it off. First to fill it in, tweet it with pic to CNN, will get a special congratulatory video tweeted from Anderson Cooper. Gee that should excite you!
Reportedly, Bill Clinton, while in town will not be at the debate, nor will Chelsea who is on the road promoting her book.
Trump will be live-tweeting it, so that will inject a little interest into the debate, that’s likely to be funny. So we’ll keep you informed on that.
Debate will start on CNN at 8:30 EST., updates will be added at the top. My comments will be in parentheses when I’m commenting on what a candidate has said.
Yes, it was ‘collegial’, because that was the plan, it’s a coronation:
Van Jones: Black Lives Matter won this debate.
CNN focus group: Bernie won, we need a little more socialism.
Luntz focus group: Bernie won!

Oh hell no, Jake Tapper said one of the issues that came up was the “email scandal”. He then amended his term and called it a “controversy”. If whether one of the candidates is a lying criminal isn’t important then we are in deep trouble.
Somehow this isn’t what the public is saying, but clearly the media is trying to give cover here.
Viewers noticed something about the Democratic candidates:
Chafee: I did it on all levels and I have had no scandals. I’m proud of my judgment. I’m running to be a peacemaker. Go to my website.
O’Malley: different debate from Republicans, you didn’t hear anyone denigrate women or immigrants, or because of their religious belief. What you heard was plans to move us to clean energy grid (yadda yadda, b.s.)
Sanders: this is a great country, but with serious problems. We should not be the country that has more income inequality than any other country. We should not be the country that doesn’t provide family and medical leave. Millions of people need to stand up to the billionaire class. Go to my website.
Hillary: what you did see, is that we’ve tried to deal with issues, in contrast to Republicans. You have to ask who has the vision(it ain’t you, babe). My mother said it isn’t whether you get knocked down, it’s whether you get back up. Recession lost a lot, my mission will be to raise incomes. If you work hard and do your part you should be able to get ahead. Come join me and see America’s best days are ahead.
