Unfair Fairness

This is one of the things I absolutely detest on our side:

The first night’s debate will feature Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. (D-NJ), Julián Castro, former housing secretary in the Obama administration, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, John Delaney, former representative from Maryland, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), Gov. Jay Inslee (D-WA), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Beto O’Rourke, former representative from Texas, and Tim Ryan, representative from Ohio.

Warren absolutely deserves to be included with Bernie, Biden, Harris, and Buttigieg instead of these no-name, no-chance-in-hell characters. I don’t support her but she’s s real candidate with a real following and improving numbers.

I detest the very idea of a random draw. I hate this fake equality. On no planet is Warren equal as a candidate to de Blasio, Delaney, and Castro. She has an actual chance and should debate with other candidates who have a chance.

  1. We needed to have stricter standards for who makes it to the final debate so we could have everyone in one debate. Your idea would also be good, but Dems are worried that they’ll be accused of unfairly meddling in the race if they make a subjective call about who’s a real candidate adn who isn’t. They need to grow a backbone and stop worrying about that shit.


  2. Hah! The Democrats bent over backwards this time to make 1000% sure that their debate setup was absolutely fair, so nobody could complain about being disadvantaged by being relegated to the “kid’s table” second-tier debate night — and look what it got them! 🙂

    At least the DNC was smart enough to schedule the resulting “kid’s table” debate on the first of the two debate nights (that was deliberate, not decided by any coin-flip). Otherwise, nobody would be watching that debate at all.


    1. “At least the DNC was smart enough to schedule the resulting “kid’s table” debate on the first of the two debate nights.”

      My mistake: I gave the DNC more credit for brains than it has. It was NBC who made the better-for-ratings decision that the “kid’s table” debate would be televised first.
