Oh, you democrats—we just want to muss your hair and give you all lollipops for offering up an issue-focused, polite, unified debate. One day, when you grow up, you’ll figure out what Republicans already know: Debates are won by the candidate who proves they’re the most awful.
Seriously, though, at last night’s CNN debate (wonderfully moderated by sexually attractive silver meerkat Anderson Cooper) democrats mostly kept their arms in the car and stuck to talking points. Even when Lincoln Chafee, Bernie Sanders, and Jim Webb veered off the trail, they did so without anger or fudging the facts.
In short, it was a pretty good, informative, not at all crazypants couple of hours that won’t change the race except to put Chafee and Webb even further behind. That doesn’t mean we won’t GIF the hell out of it, though.
