Vice-Presidential Debate Open Thread

Farmville, Virginia

Hmm, Farmville, which isn’t just a Facebook game, is a bit west of Richmond, and Tim Kaine used to be mayor of Richmond.

He’ll have the home field advantage.

I also wonder if someone we all know will be there.  Unlikely, because the next Presidential debate is going to be so close to me that it’s not an uncomfortable walking distance from where I currently live, and I don’t have enough of an “in” to get a ticket.  So, just like tonight’s debate, and the first Presidential debate, I’ll be semi-crashing someone’s debate watch party.

This will be about as exciting as the gubernatorial debates.

I have a prediction: After tonight, we’ll get a bunch of yapping and read a bunch of stories that go like this: “Why couldn’t these two people be the actual nominees?”

The odd thing about Pence (I’ve followed him for years) is that he’s not a very good public speaker (he’s gotten some help and done better lately) but he’s a debate pro. If Kaine isn’t up to snuff, Pence will spank him. Pence can pull out figures for the last 12 years showing Indiana is doing pretty well. He will. Unlike his public speeches, I have no worries about Pence in a debate. Tie or Pence +2, unless Kaine jibbers like a gibbon.

“Indiana…doing pretty well….last 12 years”

Kaine be like: “Taking credit for Mitch Daniels, are ya, Mike?”

Mitch Daniels could jump in the race tomorrow and beat Evan Byah. That’s how popular he is. Pence can take some credit, I’d guess he’ll say “Mitch Daniels” about 12 times tonight.

HOT TAKE

Kaine came off as a dick and looked like your local illegally unregistered sex offender.

Kaine’s constant need to be interruptive and pushy was a bit less ridiculous than what Biden did with Ryan four years ago. But the difference is that then, Biden had to overcompensate for an Obama flop in the first debate with Romney, and Pence had better comebacks and seemed better prepared for Kaine’s antics than Ryan was for Biden’s.

I forgot all about it. Seems that I didn’t miss anything.

Preheat oven to 666 degrees. Now you’re cooking with GAS.

It’s as good as giving us an instruction manual. Someone at Russia Today must like us.

‘Grindr serial killer’ drugged gay men before raping and killing them, court hears

https://www.rt.com/uk/361700-port-trial-gay-murder/

The court heard that he used social media sites, including the gay dating app Grindr, to set up a series of one night stands in which he allegedly spiked his dates’ drinks or injected them with enough GHB – known as liquid ecstasy – to knock them out.

Something just occurred to me. Jack Dorsey and I graduated from high school in the same year in the same city. And knowing where he went to HS, I think it’s highly probable we visibly crossed paths several times in the vaunted 1991 to 1995 time period.

You probably did. I was at Mizzou at the same time as Sheryl Crow and Juliette Huddy. Don’t remember either of them.

TWTR shares are down over 11% after hours, but there’s plenty of exuberance to be drained from this puppy yet…

Joe Wilson vindicated….

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/10/04/california-petitions-to-become-first-state-to-offer-obamacare-to-illegal-immigrants.html

In an address to a joint session of Congress in 2009, the president said ObamaCare would not apply to illegal immigrants, to which Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C. shouted “You lie!” Obama immediately responded, “That’s not true. That’s not true”
