The Politics Thread


Recommended Posts

There is no upside to Biden skipping the debates. It's going to go fine. Conspiracy theorists will come up with nonsense, Trump will make a fool of himself, the media will struggle to mount some sort of new narrative for Trump to come back, the polling and reaction won't bear it out, and nothing will have changed in this race tomorrow or by end of week. It's not that serious unless someone's a blogger whose entire existence is built around social media.

It's a complete shitshow of a debate.  Joe is doing about as well with this kind of utter [!@#$%^&*] tornado as anyone could, and Chris Wallace humiliated himself - begging Trump to follow the rules and then just say whatever he wants. But some dumb advisor told Biden to stay calm and soft spoken to contrast Trump, and that was a mistake IMO. This debate isn't going to move the needle or the votes to any major degree, but the only way to dominate a debate like this is to be loud and strong. That being said, "will you shut up, man?" and "you're the worst president we ever had" lines will be the takeaways, and that, is what will matter. Joe has gotten more aggressive as he goes, and those hard attacks are what matter now.

Trump’s attacks on Biden’s sons (including Beau) are sooo low. Americans watched Biden grieve.

It was unbelievably ugly to watch, but Biden got off zingers that went viral, and the needle won't move. Further, Trump lost the media comeback narrative he desperately needed.

The cast of Basketball Wives could have moderated that debate and it would have been more orderly. Trump had complete meltdown and the moderator lost control.
