It seems like we just had a debate last week.
Oh wait, we did.
Tonight’s debate will be shown on CBS at like 8:00 east coast time.
That is 4:00 PM here in Alaska which for me is the perfect time to watch these debates.
Tonight will be a little different as it features not one, but two billionaires on stage for Elizabeth Warren to bitchslap.
I am not sure that tonight’s debate will have the same fireworks as last week, but if it does most of them will likely be directed at front runner Bernie Sanders.
So pour yourself a glass of your favorite beverage and settle in folks, because this could be a barn burner.
As usual I will update this post as new information becomes available.
Update: Warren aims her fire in Bernie’s direction.

This thing got hot right out of the gate.
Update 2: This was good.
.@ewarren: “You know who’s going to be in Charleston later this week, is Donald Trump. He’s going to be here to raise money for his buddy Senator Lindsey Graham. Who funded Lindsey Graham’s campaign for reelection last time? It was Mayor Bloomberg.” pic.twitter.com/b68YK7TuwQ

Warren has landed a number of zingers tonight.
On the other hand, Bloomberg tried out his comedy routine and it landed with a thud.
Update 3: Now that this is over I have a few things to say.
First is that the moderators at CBS did a terrible job of controlling the candidates.
Second even though they did their best I don’t think any of the other candidates really laid a glove on Bernie Sanders tonight.
Third Michael Bloomberg should never be allowed to tell a joke again. Not ever.
And fourth I don’t think that Joe Biden did himself any favors tonight by talking over Amy Klobuchar, and constantly taking credit for every piece of legislation that anybody bothered to mention. Mansplaining and being a dick is never a good look.
I don’t know for sure what is going to happen in the South Carolina primary this weekend but I don’t believe that any of these candidates did a good job tonight of making themselves seem especially presidential.
