The Debate Fiasco

I am about to head upstairs to watch a couple of politicians pay roles in an event paid for and closely orchestrated by other elites and mis-described as a "debate." If is like going to a faux juke joint like House of Blues and pretending that you are in an actual bar. For a typically smart assessment of the spectacle have a look at Glenn Greenwald's column at The Guradian. This is not democracy. Why watch, then? Because regardless of the charade, the event will have an enormous effect on the election.
