Joe Biden REFUSES to deny that he is an IBM supercomputer sealed inside of a Japanese human suit

A historic moment: The first debate in years that won't spend 30 minutes asking "how will you pay for Medicare-for-All?"

People love it when Trump talks over people and makes insults, it's why he's up 7 points in polls.

My hottest take is that Wallace did a very good job with all this.

Trump closing with the issue you hear about in every blue collar diner - the Brooklyn post office snafu that delayed results in Rep. Carolyn Maloney's primary for several weeks.

It happened in the first 10 minutes so the "stand by" stuff has overtaken it, but it was fascinating that Trump insisted Roe wasn't on the ballot. Days ago Josh Hawley said he could vote for Barrett bc he thought she'd cast a vote to kill Roe.

“Fortunate Son” plays as Trump de-planes, an entry for the “nobody listened to the lyrics” hall of fame.

There are no mass shootings in Japan because there are no video games there

Secret Service has moved crowd back from the overflow stage so it can be broken down.

There's a clip here of @AdyBarkan , who has ALS and speaks via voice assistance, asking Biden about "re-directing" public safety funding. The clip alters the quote. It splices "for police" into it, using Barkan's artificial voice.

Not many people know this, but Medicare-for-all is the only thing that costs money. Keeping a military presence in central Asia is actually free, thanks to a bunch of coupons the Pentagon cut out in the 70s.

Attn trolls: It's not "doxxing" to identify people who appeared in public at a rally and have given media interviews about their beliefs.

"He’s not going to sign a bill that doesn’t have money for the wall... if he gives in now, that’s the end of 2019 in terms of him being an effective president. That’s probably the end of his presidency." - Lindsey Graham, January 2

Last month, Flake joined every Senate R to confirm John Bush, who wrote birther blog posts, as a federal judge.

"If the people who wrote this bill were proud of it, they wouldn’t be forcing this vote in the dead of night." -- Mitch McConnell, 2009
