X-Rated Debate?

Bad Hair

Almost time for the debate. If you have small children, perhaps you should put them to bed first. Or lock them in the spare room with games and a bag of Oreos. Just don’t let them near the teevee.

If Trump were a sensible person, he’d try to change the subject from anything sexual and act in a statesmanlike manner.  But as a Facebook friend said, basically Trump is what you’d get if a penis became sentient. That being so, I believe he will bring up the Bill Clinton scandals from the 1990s (see Vox for a refresher). And I’m sure Hillary Clinton anticipates that and will be ready for it.

I don’t think I’ll live-blog this one; I’m very tired. But feel free to comment here while the debate is going on. Or before or after. Otherwise, there’s usually good live blogging at Talking Points Memo and The Guardian. You can follow that if you can’t bear to watch, or if the kids run out of Oreos.
