Debate Hangover Open Thread

by William Skink

Well, the shit-show is over (for now). Trump self-destructed last night, bullying Clinton and that guy who was supposed to be moderating. If he was blowing lines of cocaine (the infamous sniffles) it certainly didn’t give him the extra stamina he needed. At times he seemed nearly out of breath, and he kept sipping water like little Marco did a few years ago.

Trump had so many disastrous exchanges it’s hard to pin down the one that will damage him the most, but it’s probably the indirect admission that he doesn’t pay taxes that will hurt him the most.

If discussing the debate doesn’t do it for ya, you can also opine on Missoula’s city council making themselves feel like they’re accomplishing something by passing the ordinance requiring background checks for gun sales within city limits. I still think this post by Dan Brooks from last year nails the problem with the ordinance: a good idea, but bad policy.

And if that’s not appealing, then may I suggest watching my latest music video. This one is about Missoula, and it’s called Clark’s Fork. Enjoy!

    You know what I’d like the City Council to talk about?

    Glass recycling.

    I’m sure there’s support in the community for that, enough for a bond measure or something. I’d rather have us spend money on that as opposed to mall expansions, one-way street studies, and other such things.

    I switched back and forth between the football game, and I wondered where all the softball questions came from.

    Nothing about America being broke, $19 trillion (how many zero’s) in debt, nothing about Health Care, nothing about controlling our borders, but old questions about which one of them supported the war in Iraq more? Pathetic. Even Don Pogreba, with his limited debate skills, and hunger to be a Dem insider, would have been a better moderator.
