Yet Another Live Blog: November Democratic debate

Hi Sky Dancers!

It’s been a busy day today!

And yet, we’re still here!

And the graphic is from WAPO and this bit of info:

The fifth Democratic debate is being co-hosted by The Washington Post and MSNBC. It’s being held in Atlanta, at Tyler Perry Studios. Ten candidates qualified to be onstage, hitting at least 3 percent in four approved polls or at least 5 percent in two early-state polls, plus bringing in donations from at least 165,000 unique donors:

So, it’s 10 candidates and it’s Atlanta, GA and NBC/ MSNBC news:

Ten candidates will appear on stage: former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, Sen. Kamala Harris of California, Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, billionaire activist Tom Steyer, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

And most of us are still standing!  Heavy has some suggested your tea sipping/wine sipping suggestions.

 

  • Take a sip if anyone talks about Bernie’s heart attack.

  • Take a sip if Sanders talks about a “radical” idea (and uses the word “radical.”)

  • Take a shot if Andrew Yang tries to give away money again.

  • Take a shot if Tulsi Gabbard calls the debate hosts “despicable” again.

  • Take a sip if Gabbard is wearing white again.

  • Take a sip if Biden steps away from his podium and leans close to another candidate. Take a shot if he actually touches another candidate.

  • Take a sip if Biden gives the wrong website or phone number. If he talks about record players again, take a shot.

  • Take a sip if Harris talks about being a prosecutor and being proud of her record.

  • Take a shot if Harris seems too happy and looks like she had a shot before the debate.

  • Take a shot if Cory Booker makes another marijuana joke like he does in most debates.

  • Take a sip if Booker talks about being vegan.

  • Take a sip if Booker makes an awkward joke.

  • Take a shot if Buttigieg talks about Mike Pence.

  • Take a sip if Buttigieg says a joke that’s funny and makes you literally laugh out loud.

  • Take a sip if someone talks about Buttigieg rising in the polls.

  • Take a sip if Warren says “I have a plan.”

  • Take a sip if Warren talks about her rise in the polls.

  • Take a sip if someone takes a shot at Warren’s decision to hold off on Medicare for All until she’s in office for three years.

  • Take a sip if Warren and Sanders hug.

  • Take a shot the first time Warren or Sanders say anything negative about the other, because that is really are.

  • Take a sip if Klobuchar talks about fundraising.

  • Take a sip if Steyer talks about his money or net worth.

  • Take a sip if someone else gets mad about how much money Steyer has.

Will we get questions on the Impeachment Hearings?  Foreign Policy?  Stay tuned!

    OK so I’m drunk now – since Booker’s marijuana joke actually.

    Tulsi Gabbard pisses me off – how do you insult military families and claim your military experience in one sentence? Why is she there and not Castro?

    • dakinikat says:

      I have no idea why she’s there or Yang’s there or Steyer’s there … I’d rather see folks that actually hold offices and not in their first term ..

    Biden claims at debate that he has the support of ‘the only black woman’ elected to the Senate, to which Kamala Harris responds, ‘the other one is here!’

    Biden really appears to have some dementia issues. Don’t think it’s as major as Trump’s, but I really don’t think he’s up for a campaign or the job.
