Oh, no!! It's debate time again.... must we... really?

Don't know if I'll say anything, but here's your place to talk.

Looks like John (my son) is taking this thing seriously. Check that out.

I can barely tolerate the idea. I guess it's just the thought of Joe Biden's teeth, shining like the Cheshire Cat, that gives me enough of a little lift to keep going... into the horror... what? does this go on until... 2 a.m. or something....

.

7:50 Central Time — Way too much back and forth about health care, with an unfair amount of time lavished on Kamala Harris. I've had it with the effort to shoehorn in anecdotes about grandmothers and what life was like growing up. I'm going to give the health care round to Joe Biden.

8:21 — Cory Booker is doing a good job of standing next to Biden and giving him the eye. Booker seems to have a nice joy of the game. I'm enjoying his performance.

9:39 — The best of the night? Tulsi Gabbard. A brutal attack on Kamala Harris. Excellent deep, strong voice. Well-grounded seriousness.

I just finished 9 holes of golf, and in 1/2 hour, I’m going to play some hockey. But I could be picking lint out of my sock drawer and it’d be more rewarding than watching that bunch of loons...

Beasts of England said...

I just hope there's no satire involved...

Limited blogger said...

Yes, Ann, we must

Tank said...

So far it’s awful.

Limited blogger said...

Looking for my guy Andy Yang to show up big tonight.

pacwest said...

Can any of these people tack far enough back to the center in the general to win an election? Maybe Harris, but I think not.

Limited blogger said...

I'm from NY, I'll pre-apologize for Bill and Kirsten

Big Mike said...

I’ll have to give it a miss. I have some sheets that need ironing.

Limited blogger said...

It goes on 'til 2am so CNN can try to spin it into something positive

Browndog said...

I hope Love wins...again.

I hope Babylon Bee and The Onion don't come to loggerheads over a fact-check from Snopes over love snark.

David Begley said...

Tulsi is so, so good looking! She is better looking in person. Movie star looks.

Ingachuck'stoothlessARM said...

after Pete Bugghedhed's adornment last nite

what sort of detritus (Detroit-us?) will enhance this crowd's visage?

Chest Rockwell said...

Tulsi’s hot.

Gilibrand is kinda hot too, in a batshit crazy kinda way.

Chest Rockwell said...

Stores close!?

Who knew?

I find it hilarious how Yang just wants to put everybody on welfare.

David Begley said...

Why disrupt Spartacus?

narciso said...

Yes she is, now miss rutnik should look good but not really

Browndog said...

Nothing I want more than for Yang to yell "FUCK!".

Chest Rockwell said...

I hear racist and some counter chant

h said...

I appreciate having the open forum here, because I like to hear from other commenters. But I don't need input from the Althouse household. Maybe there's a Brewers game on.

David Begley said...

Biden is such a dunce. Ridiculous opening statement.

Browndog said...

This first question to Harris was scripted, as was her answer.

FUCK!

Limited blogger said...

Biden gonna start throwing elbows tonight!

Browndog said...

Harris is on quaaludes. No talking me out of it.

David Begley said...

Willie Brown is on Medicare.

Limited blogger said...

More Yang!

FullMoon said...

Corey brings up Baltimore. What a genius !

Yancey Ward said...

Castro:

"We're not going 'back where we came from.' We're moving forward, but we aren't moving to Baltimore."

Yancey Ward said...

Yang: "We need to do the opposite of what we've been doing now. I am changing my name to Costanza."

h said...

Biden's hair looks weirder on high-def TV than I had ever noticed before. Kamala Harris opens by saying about BIden, "He probably hasn't read my plan." If Biden had taken that tack toward Harris, he would be criticized as "mansplaining". Harris then goes on with some anodyne promise to give Americans what they want (ho-hum). Harris looks strong engaging face-to-face with BIden. Biden seems really smart and engaged and not "too old". Gillibrand: the personal stories are boring. I'm 15 minutes or so in and I'm going to publish and reengage after I've read other comments.

Hagar said...

Jonah Goldberg finally said something interesting on Bret Baier this PM when he pointed out how the media has failed to note how badly the Democrats did across the country under the Obama presidency, losing thousands of state and local officials and that these were mostly moderates, leaving the Party in the hands of the loony left.
I guess it makes sense; the more or less evenly divided districts is where the moderates would be most likely to wander off the reservation and vote Republican in their dismay over Obama and Washington.
Anyway, it now leaves the Democrat Party without a reservoir of moderate candidates who could win back their moderate voters and appeal to the general public.

rcocean said...

Why is Gillibrand talking about the past in the present tense?

And lets not *lose* the forest for the trees?

Limited blogger said...

Agree, the personal stories never work for me.

Tell me what you will do for America

Browndog said...

I'm not feeling the Love.

rcocean said...

Damn that moderator is a bossy cow!

rcocean said...

Civil rights parents? WTF

Yancey Ward said...

Biden: "Mister President, we are stronger because of this diversity. I can say this now because I wasn't in last night's debate."

Browndog said...

I hope everyone realizes we're being gaslighted to think Obamacare never existed.

Limited blogger said...

Booker calling Trump 'the enemy'. That is rough.

Yancey Ward said...

Harris on her health plan: ""They're probably confused because they've not read it. I mean, even Robert Mueller understands it."

rcocean said...

Booker - Medicare for all. Lets not disagree in PUBLIC. Its not like its a debate. Lets disagree in private.

FullMoon said...

Talked to an old liberal today who is living on savings and social security. He is pissed off because he has finally realized every time wages go up, his cost of everything goes up.

Guy is in his eighties and took him this long to get it.

Anyway, he is not too happy with the fifteen dollar minimum wage.

Michael K said...

I hope everyone realizes we're being gaslighted to think Obamacare never existed.

At least Biden mentioned it. The lying is just nauseating. This is 11 years after the Democrats wrote a plan with ZERO Republican input and it flopped. Just nauseating.

Limited blogger said...

where is Yang? Did they shut his mic off again?

rcocean said...

Can someone tell me why Joe is a "Moderate"?

Michael K said...

rcocean said...

Thank you Senator, WTF. He was in the middle of a sentence!

Yancey Ward said...

Biden: "Senator Harris' plan will cost 300 quadrillion dollars, and take 343,333 years to come into effect"

Harris: "The cost doing of doing nothing is 12,222 bazillion quatloos, and every American dead by November"

rcocean said...

2010 - The D's have passed Obamacare. Woo Hoo. Problem fixed.
2019 - Healthcare is terrible. Elect the D's. We'll fix it this time.

FullMoon said...

Republicans gonna take away your healthcare ~! Oh, noes !

Hagar said...

The ACA is about "insurance care," not "health care," but Murphy's Golden Rule will apply; the medical industry - or rather, industries - will react and there will be consequences, foreseen and not foreseen.

Browndog said...

"We need to be honest.."

You're done here, Pal!

FullMoon said...

So far, going for sick people, climate alarmists,lgtb

Chest Rockwell said...

Harris is testy and not like able at all.

That Colorado guy is pretty convincing though.

Limited blogger said...

Yang will fix healthcare quickly because he knows math

FullMoon said...

Medicare must be a wonderful system? Is it better than VA?

Anne said...

Jay Inslee looks scary. Very sharp teeth.

Yancey Ward said...

Gillibrand: You guys are missing the forest because of bears- the insurance companies are greasy scoundrels! … They have bacon fat that's real and should be going to making gravy."

h said...

I notice that Biden quite strictly abides by the cut-offs; while others (so far notably) Harris go on until they have finished their thoughts. For me this works as a pro-Biden ploy. I wonder how the rules will come into play, since obviously Harris has a lot more time than others so far.

rcocean said...

Gov Islee - There's a man with a square jaw and strong glasses. Then talks about Mental Health for all. All the D's cheer. Lots of Mentally ill patients?


Browndog said...

On a serious note, if you listen to the verbiage Kamala Harris uses, especially off teleprompter, it's as totalitarian as it gets.

I noticed when she ran for California AG.

She was bad then, worse now. I don't think she realizes it, or doesn't care.

Yancey Ward said...

Booker: Can't we all just get along, like I do with my hot beard...er... boo?

Anne said...

So I work for BIG EVIL PHARMA and I can tell you...if any of these proposals for dictating drug development and pricing becomes reality, you can kiss breakthrough medications good-bye. No company will develop a new cancer therapy at the cost of over $1 billion, only to have a bunch of know-nothings tell them what they can charge. These people are imbeciles.

Browndog said...

Someone's yelling again...

Anne said...

No one is using his indoor voice.

Yancey Ward said...

Harris: "Biden's plan just cover 3 people in Memphis, and only on Sundays"

Biden: "Where's my pudding?" [Suffers minor stroke, babbles incoherently, recovers briefly and gets cut off]

h said...

"Harris is testy and not likeable at all." I had the same reaction. The more she talks, the less I like her. It's not (I think) because I disagree with her policy proposal, it's because I don't think she responds well to criticism, and (see my earlier comment) because she insists on talking beyond the allowed limit.

Limited blogger said...

Biden is yelling

Anne said...

Kamala Harris is dumber than a bag of leeches. Profits are not profit margins.

And insulin is available cheap and over the counter. No one wants to mention that.

rehajm said...

These people are imbeciles.

You're right Anne but it's not just them. Trump thinks allowing Americans to buy drugs in Canada is like shopping at Costco.

Michael K said...

My bullshit detector pegged nearly. None of these people know what they are talking about.

Limited blogger said...

The back benchers actually sound more sane than the front runners

rcocean said...

I got a different reaction. Harris is a strong woman. She's got what it takes.

traditionalguy said...

A brouhaha of of cheap Insurance salesmen. Where is Marianne when we need her?

Yancey Ward said...

Harris: "Insurance shouldn't be tied to jobs or flagpoles"

Bennett: "Senator Harris' plan will turn private insurance into illegal alie....er undocumented....er....I mean make private insurance not possible to sell. By the way, I love Senator Harris as much as Willy Brown did."

Harris: "I consider Bennett a friend, too, but he is a lying scumbag about my plan to make private insurance illegal- that isn't not a lie."

Michael K said...

That Colorado guy is pretty convincing though.

Bennet is the only one remotely in touch with reality

h said...

Did BIden say, "That deductible is coming out of your paycheck."? Does he understand what a deductible is?

rcocean said...

babies at the border. Babies in cages. Cries.

rcocean said...

Children should be allowed to run free. Like birds.

Tank said...

I’m trying to imagine one of these people sitting across the table from Putin.

Yancey Ward said...

Inslee: "Thanks for noticing that I am in the race. Just because I am a lunatic without a diagnosis doesn't mean you shouldn't lock me up and have insurance pay for it."

Anne said...

So easy for those parents separated from their children to get their children back: LEAVE and act in a legal fashion.

JAORE said...

Obama Care. The plan that dare not speak its name....

Wasn't repeal and replace racist....like just last year?

Limited blogger said...

Trump will not need the Russians this go round

h said...

Castro won't say so, I guess, but he does favor open borders. But he thinks if he pronounces "Guatemala" like an authentic Latino, no will notice that he favors open borders.

rcocean said...

Giilbrand = women who fled violence. Raped. So, we should have civil violation. Babies at the border. Babies behind bars.

Leland said...

I suppose I should watch to get this answer. I was reading a bit on Facebook about Hong Kong. Are any of the Democrat Candidates being questioned about China in relation to Hong Kong? Seems kind of important, no?

Anne said...

Beset by Trigglypuffs...

Yancey Ward said...

Yang: When I told my wife I was running for president, she rolled on the floor laughing so hard she had a heart attack. At the hospital, she pointed out that had she been uninsured, she would have been admitted to the ER anyway."

traditionalguy said...

They are all passionately for open borders offering every peasant on earth a lifetime of free cadillac plan health care, housing and education in Spanish etc.. Tell me again how strong these politicians are.

David Begley said...

Even the crowd is yelling. Losers.

Castro is just a tribalist. Mexicans uber alles.

FullMoon said...

Anecdotal horror stories.

Real world minimum wage young people resent being forced to pay for insurance.

Yancey Ward said...

De Blasio: "Thanks for not ignoring me like that guy Incest over there. Why are we fear-mongering about health care- the real existential threat is me becoming president- let's focus, guys!"

Drago said...

Mueller. Its as though he never existed....

Anne said...

Joe almost sounds lucid on this issue. People should have to get in line. Absolutely.

h said...

As I said in comments in last night's debate: I think it is becoming more and more clear that Democrats favor open borders. I don't believe this is a winning position, and I think Trump's team will beat them over the head with it over and over and over.

Browndog said...

Biden, after CNN allows everyone to attack him:

"I yield the rest of my time to Yang. Wait- I'll say it for him..."FUCK!"

Limited blogger said...

Can you imagine the Trump v. Yang debates!

Holy shit, will be legendary

David Begley said...

Yang: Admit inventors!

Anne said...

Yang: Quit letting in all these Central American morons. More smart people!!!!

rcocean said...

Gabbard - hearts break. babies at the border. Yang - MY Dad was great.

De Blasio - Agree with me or you're a Republican plant.

h said...

Wow, Drago: Mueller never existed. I hadn't noticed until you said it. Though the topics are led by the CNN questionners.

FullMoon said...

Watching Kamala, I gotta put canned olives on the Costco list...

Browndog said...

Americans built this country...for those fact checking.

Hagar said...

I do not understand their blather about reducing the cost of drugs by allowing importation of drugs from Canada - or rather, according to the new czar of this, allowing drugs made here or elsewhere and labeled for Canada to be held here, or re-routed to here from where they are made, and sold here for Canadian prices. All of this to be strictly supervised, of course.

I think these people must have been tasting more than they should have of the more strictly controlled drugs passing through their hands.

As I understand it, "Big Pharma" really is not all that profitable as it is, so if drug prices are to come down and the firms to survive, the existing marketing practices must be broken up and new ones created so that the development costs will be shared across the world markets instead of as now, where we in the U.S. shoulder most all of the development costs and other countries just pay the marginal cost of larger production plus a profit margin.

It does not sound like even Trump has a stomach for forcing through such changes against the yelling and screaming this would cause the world over and universal condemnation in the UN, etc. and so forth.

Plus how much can one man do if even his own people won't back him?

David Begley said...

I have no sympathy for these invaders and law breakers. Sorry.

Hey, Joe. This country was built by LEGAL immigrants.

Inslee is deranged.

FullMoon said...

Gillibrand believes every wild story women trying to get into USA tells her.

Browndog said...

I didn't watch last night, but followed the commentary.I felt obligated to watch tonight.

I regret that decision.

Biden - we need EVEN MORE Immigrants. 1.5 million is not enough. And if you got a PHD you're an American.

rcocean said...

The Democrats REFUSE To enforce immigration laws in the Blue States and cities.

They won't do JACK SHIT to enforce the law if elected. They NOT secure the Border. They will grant AMNESTY To all illegals. They support open borders and will give welfare and health care to illegals.

Yancey Ward said...

Biden: "America is great because we picked cherries from around the world"

Biden's campaign staff slap foreheads in unison causing a big ruckus in the auditorium.

h said...

I think that Biden is taking a lot of heat from all sides, and really looks like he is on the defensive. Gillibrandt seems to have been taking a nap and then teacher called her name. Not a good few seconds.

FullMoon said...

Biden has practiced speech about dreamers. De Blasio set him up with a softball..

Booker: The ACLU Loves me. Biden is dipping into the Koolaid and don't even know the flavor. BIden destroyed my community.



Yancey Ward said...

Biden has another stroke and addresses "Grand Emperor Booker", catches himself, laughs it off and says Booker is going to be homeless.

David Begley said...

Castro wants to fix the police force. If he ends qualified immunity for the cops, no one will be a cop. Moron.

Rubber and glue again.

Honestly I find this surreal. The Democratic party would like to tie its balloon to unlimited immigration, release of criminals into the general population,and a Medicare plan that will destroy every private plan. Trump may win.

Eric Garner digression.

Ingachuck'stoothlessARM said...

this is like a game show

The police and the justice department are the problem?

Crime is the problem

LOL-

Eric Gardner happened under the Obama DOJ. I think it was Holder that cleared NYPD.

Eric Garner! Justice was not done? A jury decided that, didn’t it?

Beasts of England said...

Did anyone have 'marijuana justice' on their debate bingo card?

Yancey Ward said...

Biden finally thaws out his brain: "Emperor Palpa.....er Senator Booker, your record on crime in New Jersey was horrible- Tony Soprano ran the place for goodness sake!"

Biden let 38,000 crooks out early. Vote for me.

h said...

As we get close to the end, Harris is too strident, and I don't think she has won, even though she has a lot of camera time. BIden has taken a lot of hits about why he didn't do more as vp and I think this means he has not won, even though he has a lot of camera time. Gov. Inslee looks like a retired football player with black-frame glasses, and he did answer a lot of questions well. (But will he be the nominee? No.) DeBlasio looks stupid and how can he continue. Yang looks smart, but I don't think anyone will take him seriously because his central welfare for all program is too weird. Castro didn't do well enough to get over the top (maybe he could win the nomination of the "rent is too damn high" party). Gillibrand might as well have stayed home (written before her final plea about her "white privilege" basis. Booker looked strong with his direct exchanges with BIden. Perhaps Booker is a winner. I'm afraid everyone else is not memorable.

wildswan said...

I think Biden is holding his own and some good shots were got in on Kamala Harris about her prosecutorial record and about taking away people's health insurance.. I say Biden wins - the debate.
