Here are the details for the final presidential debate:

When? 9 to 10:30 p.m. ET Thursday. (You can listen to the debate on NPR, and we'll have a livestream video online.)

Where? Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn.

Who's moderating? Kristen Welker of NBC News

Trump is sticking to his habit of criticizing the moderator ahead of a debate.

"[Welker's] been screaming questions at me for a long time. She's no good," Trump said during a Monday rally in Prescott, Ariz.

But Trump senior adviser Jason Miller told Fox News' Martha MacCallum in early October that he has a "very high opinion" of Welker and that "she's a journalist who's very fair in her approach."

What's the format? The debate will be divided into six 15-minute segments. Each candidate will have two minutes of uninterrupted time at the beginning of each segment.

What are the topics? Welker released the tentative topics a week ahead of the debate. Not necessarily in this order, these are the topics:

fighting COVID-19

American families

race in America

climate change

national security

leadership

I look forward to dopey Donnie ranting while his mic is muted, making him look even crazier and more unhinged than he normally looks.

Five bucks says Dump walks over while his mic is muted and stalks Biden like he did with Hilary, and Biden lunges at Dump like he's going to clean his clock, and Dump reacts like when that eagle was on his desk.

Also, the Maxwell testimony drops tomorrow morning.

I wish him well.

I am from the near future and if you would like to skip ahead, this is how it goes [SPOILERS]:

One participant will work the refs, waste time with bluster and word salad, smear the opponent, lie about himself, ignore inconvenient truths, dogwhistle with an amplified kazoo, and generally flumber about like a diseased octopus on the deck of a fishing boat.

One participant will point out the failings of the current administration, promise he'll do better, note that he worked for a guy who was better, laugh off the smears, address large societal issues in the depth allowed by 2-minute responses, be visibly less insane and senile than the first guy, and by the end it'll seem like not only is he a thousand years old but we've been watching this debate for a hundred of them.

I can't stand watching him speak.. His smug fakery is infuriating.
During the last debate I just listened on NPR (*And attempted to read the Fark posts...) , I think I'll do the same this time as well.

*Has Drew in his great wisdom, decided to dedicate a few dozen servers this time?

I was thinking, isn't this a bit early than I remembered this exchange from Cheers:

Woody:  "Would you like a beer Mr. Peterson?"
Norm: "Don't you think it is a bit early?"
Woody: "Too early for a beer?"
Norm: "No, to early for stupid questions?"

I admire Biden's ability to not walk over there the moment his son's name comes out of Two Scoops mouth and just grab him by his necktie and loudly proclaim he'll clean his farking clock.

I know myself well enough  I can say that I lack this ability.

My primary care provider increased my BP med from 2.5 mg to 5 mg on Tuesday, so hopefully that will help.

I don't know...
This might be the last time you get to see him talk without invoking the 5th amendment until he gets that orange jumpsuit...

Don't rule out Drumpf cancelling the debate due to air strikes being launced at Iran.  He'll prempt the debate with a presidential address to the nation explaining that the air strikes were necessay to contain the Iranian threat to the election.  Bonus spot on the bingo card for either a) Israel participates in the strikes or b) he nukes Tehran.

October surprise #22.

So did the venue or debate commission demand negative covid tests by everyone who will be seated in the room?

We've heard about the muted microphone, but where are the covid protections for Biden and everyone else who is not a trump family member?
 
2020-10-22 11:54:01 AM  
Has FOXNews accidentally prematurely released their analysis of how Trump kicked Joe's butt yet?

Another debate, another electoral-vote.com animation...
The Biden lead has been shaky, it dipped below statistically safe this week, but as of today is back up again. Digging into the details Trump isn't so much gaining ground, but he might be eroding Biden's support. Neither party seems to be able to get consistent traction in Texas, Florida can't make up it's mind, and the southeast and rust belt want those ad dollars dammit! In other words, no one is going to know for sure until all of the dust settles, so Vote Like Your Life Depends On It!
Right Now:
Biden 340 Exactly Tied 38 (Texas) Trump 160 (including statistical ties)
Biden 279   Statistically Tied 133   Trump 126

I'll bet Trump thinks that since his dramatic exit from the 60 Minutes interview was so Alpha Male-y, that he'll just repeat that tonight.

The debate people aren't the only ones who'll be using the Mute button tonight.

After the debate, I look forward to hearing the insane rants from Donnie when his mic is muted.  You just know he won't be able to help himself, he'll just start yelling.  They have to record it, they just have to.  I don't know what they'll do if Donnie decides to go invade Biden's space because Joe's mic is hot.
