My Gif-Fueled Commentary on Last Night’s Democrat Debate Clown Show

I decided to live-tweet last night’s Democratic Party presidential debate. We watched it streaming on Hulu and I unloaded with these barbs, observations, and a few retweets too:

Steyer actually did fairly well.

The level of conservative affection for many of the way-out-there-no-chance Democratic candidates is one of the amusing aspects of this cycle. They are largely appreciated for their quirkiness and for occasionally pointing out the BS of the leading candidates.

Ending Two Seasons of Silence

As is apparent, I have neglected regular posting at the MAD TAB Blog for most of the year. For this I have often felt guilty or even hypocritical – here I am telling the novelists I edit that they should be keeping a regular blog and other social media to connect with new readers and yet I am falling short in one of the important categories myself.
