I am not watching tonight’s presidential debate. You should not either.
You already know who you’re voting for. The “winner ” of the debate is whoever you’re voting for, and even that doesn’t happen, you’re not changing your vote anyway.
So why bother watching? Because you want to see a potential disaster? Because you want to see Trump potentially make an ass out of himself? Because you want to see Hillary get called dishonest? Because you need to make a drinking game out of it? Whatever the reason, it’s certainly not because you think the debate will help you make an informed decision on whom to vote.
The only winners of tonight’s Presidential Debate are the networks who roll in the ad revenue. Y’know, that “Mainstream Media” that, regardless of whether you lean Left or Right, many of you are always complaining about? So why reward their shitty behavior by giving them a dime by offering your viewership? Why not actually hold them accountable for once? Why not just tune out all of the bullshit and clickbait articles for the rest of the election?
The fact that this debate is even happening proves that we’ve already failed as a nation. If you want to better serve your country, here’s a suggestion:
Come grab a beer at the Skinny (174 Orchard Street) for the Fred Durst Memorial Comedy Festival*. Seating is at 7:30, show starts at 8, and when we’re done telling jokes, we’ll probably play pool and watch what’s left of the Monday Night Football game.
This is literally what your troops died for. Not a Jersey Shore/Presidential Election crossover episode.
