That was the good stuff. Did Sondland make a sour face or just keep grinning?

I had never heard of rep. SPM until a few days ago when I saw him on Maddow and was really impressed. No idea where he stands on the many campaign issues but he stitched a clownsuit on Trump and his cronies. Fantastic communicator with upper level management written all over him.

I looked him up after his attack of Sondland. He's a moderate NY congressman. Gay and married with 3 adopted kids. He worked in the Clinton administration prior to running for congress.

The details of this are not available yet, and matter quite a bit, but if you believe digital is/was a competitive advantage for Trump this is a very very big deal and probably good news.

Review of debate:

Best of night: Klobuchar and Booker.

Stayed the course despite the most to lose: Buttigieg, Biden, and Sanders.

Good performance that shouldve happened earlier: Harris.

Businessmen become human: Yang and Steyer.

Failed to gained momentum: Warren.

Sideshow distraction becomes punching bag: Gabbard.

He had some poor moments especially with Harris but he didn't lose anything, IMO. Sanders stayed the course by showing his recovered from his heart attack.

Klobuchar was obnoxious:
I'd love to do more. As I've said before, I'd love to staple free diplomas under people's chairs. I just am not going to go for things -- and this is not -- I'm talking about Senator Harris' plan here, but I'm talking about some of the other ideas that have been out here. I am not going to go for things just because they sound good on a bumper sticker and then throw in a free car.

[...] And that is everything from sending rich kids to college for free, which I don't support, to kicking 149 million off their health insurance -- current health insurance in four years.

just the most absolutely dishonest horsefeathers; go find a republican debate somewhere for these talking points

well, republicans have repeatedly told us that the Trump administration is super passionate about stamping out corruption in foreign countries, so I would expect that they will be freezing military aid to Israel any day now. :roll:
