Open thread—Yay, another debate

Open thread—Yay, another debate

I’m rather jaundiced about the utility of televised debates set within the modern media landscape. These are not Lincoln-Douglas. They’re not even Reagan-Carter. They’re WWE matches where trying to get a “gotcha” moment is paramount. And any sort of debate which is moderated by the likes of Chuck Todd is prima facie laughable.

But, we’re having the Democratic debate tonight, with the contestants, er, candidates whittled down to ten. And Andrew Yang Chung Tonight is promising to do something no presidential candidate has ever done on live television. So there’s that to look forward to.

This is your open thread. Post cat and dog memes if you want.
