You Like FIGHTS? Then You'll Love Tonight's Democratic Debate!
CANCEL YOUR PLANS TONIGHT, BECAUSE YOU GOT PLANS TONIGHT!
Yes, loves, there is a Democratic debate tonight. Now, we know — we know — that there might be a wee bit of debate fatigue setting in. WE KNOW. But we need you to suck it up, because at last, for finally, people are voting now. Yes. For real. We have had an Iowa caucus and a New Hampshire primary, Pete Buttigieg has a narrow lead in delegates, followed by Bernie Sanders in second place. Joe Biden has crashed and burned so far, and other people have also gotten votes and delegates, like Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar!
This weekend, there is a Nevada caucus, and then at the end of this month there is a South Carolina primary. Then comes Super Tuesday, and people are already voting in a lot of those states. Like, for literal, we could personally leave our house after we finish writing this and immediately go vote in our home state of Tennessee. (But we're NOT GONNA, because we have NOT DECIDED who we are voting for.)
In other words, after 767 months of primary, we have actually reached the official starting line, which means the finish line is finally in sight.
TIME TO TUNE IN, BOZOS.
As for what to expect tonight, well, Michael Bloomberg is in it for the first time. We bet you have opinions on that! Regardless, expect literally everybody else on that stage — Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg — to just absolutely go psycho on him. If you like FIGHTS, this is going to be a debate you want to watch.
