I'm not watching it. I don't need even more stress in my life. The best way to "watch it" is just follow the Fark thread or your Twitter feed. That way you don't have to hear Trump speak, you can just get a LIVE summary of the highlights/lowlights along with memes and gifs.

Are voodoo dolls anatomically correct?

Oh... "Masticating!"  Never mind...

So someone at the debate on Trump's team (maybe even half scoop himself) is gonna stand up and shout "NONSENSE!" or perhaps "SHENANIGANS!" whenever they hear something they don't like. This should be good. Security, get ready to pistol whip him.

I've got 3 to 1 odds that Trump has a temper tantrum and storms out the first time he tries to scream over Biden and gets his pustule-pocked ass muted.
 
2020-10-22 11:12:43 AM  
Nope.

Are you manually masticating voodoo dolls for artificial insemination? ;)

I guess dolls these days are lot more technologically advanced than in my day.

If anyone watches at all, the only way is to be drunk.  Or high.  Or both.

Naw, not the first time. But the first time they unmute him, he'll spend his first two minutes whining about being treated very unfairly by "you people". I wouldn't think he'd actually walk out at all except for that 60 Minutes interview result, so that's a coin flip for me. He will complain constantly, though.

We have debates because we used to have debates. Anyone tuning in to tonight's debate because they still can't decide on who to vote for should probably not be let out into public without a caregiver. At best tonight will be scripted talking points at worst it will be the unchecked, third-grade playground bully melting down and trying to do as much damage as possible.

FTA: "Viewers will see a new approach as organizers strive to prevent the kind of chaos that marred last month's first debate in Cleveland, Ohio, when moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News struggled to maintain order as the candidates frequently talked over each other."

Duck you CBC.

Both sides are equally bad you say?

Brave editorial stance is brave.

I really should write an article telling the CBC how to follow the US presidential race but it would be hella-long and they wouldn't change a damn thing so I guess I won't.

Just saying.

Mostly just showed up to give +1 to Subby cos I am a huge Karen Black fan and I loved ToT as a tot.

That's pretty much how I plan to 'consume' the debate myself. It's not like anyone is going to change their minds at this juncture so this is just pure theater. Might be amusing though.

There only reason it's not 100% is because there's a non-zero chance Dolt45 will explode into a cloud of Adderall fueled rage pixies the first time he opens his mouth.

Oooh. I never considered that. I suppose because I am not a republican, and so therefore I am not an utter raging asshole, that possibility never occurred to me. And I bet if he does it, he'll do it with no mask, and try to spew as much virus on Biden as possible.

Are they even going to be present? The debate commission is going to prohibit people who refuse to wear masks. As we all know, people who wear masks are literally the love children of Karl Marx and Hillary Clinton.

By allowing the moderator to cut Trump's mic, they are allowing him to seem normal and reasonable.

The better choice was to simply let Trump be Trump. Let him interrupt and scream and throw tantrums. He loses. But by constraining him, you increase the chance he comes off well. Which counts as him "winning" in our low-standards media society.

We've inadvertently engineered our own destruction.

Wouldn't Biden's SS detail take that as a direct threat to their asset?
Wouldn't they feel obligated to protect him by taking out the threat?
God I hope so

I've already voted, and for Biden.

I don't need to watch it, and more than 30 million other voters that have already voted don't need to watch it either.
 
2020-10-22 11:42:54 AM  
It's fine and dandy that they'll try to mute Trump while Biden has his two minutes. But I've seen nothing about how they'll try to shut him up when he runs overs his own allocated times to speak. (Or froth and foam at the mouth.) Please don't tell me they'll just try to give polite verbal prompts.

I'm gonna watch it just to see Trump try to interrupt into a dead microphone. It will be like watching a monkey screeching in a soundproof box.

Because Trump will act in a totally sane and rational manner when they cut his mic.

In fairness, there is a sense of history about how low Trump will take things. At this point, I anticipate a Biden landslide, however Trump cheats and disrupts. So this is an opportunity to experience the low, but without a sense of existential dread, so I can feel the elation and relief when this comes to its inevitable historical reckoning, which will probably come pretty quickly, along with criminal charges for a lot of enablers.

We will never again see a man so desperately fighting against his own hubris with no shame or restraint against such a polar opposite.

And with Biden able to speak without interruption, we can hear a message of hope and course correction.

/Canadian. I miss having you guys as an erratic but generally well-meaning ally.
