  1. I expect a full report on July 31’s “debate” as I am unable to watch Cory Booker for a moment without losing all faith in humanity.

  2. what a cast of characters…last time some of these spoke, they had nothing of value to say. I’ve got much better things to do, like picking farts out of beans.

  3. If I don’t have anything better to do than watch these I will go to bed. The objective seems to be to breakout by coming up with outlandish proposals: reparations, cancelling student debt, open borders and revocation of citizenship for Trump supporters (okay, I mad that one up).
