I wouldn’t have thought that political debates were a lot art. And, being fair, the format, with 10 candidates on stage, is all but impossible.
But the media’s efforts to eke out victories largely involve awarding goals to the occasional attacks from the Left. None of these attacks, especially tonight’s Kamala Harris jab at Biden, were all that impressive.
Last night, Castro and Bill de Blasio scored points off Beto O’Rourke because he responded ineptly, not because they had good points. Likewise, Tulsi Gabbard was awarded a win against Tim Ryan because she had the more left-wing position and he began to stumble.
But the other person being unable to communicate simple ideas and respond to cross-chatter does not make you a great debater. It just means they’re terrible.
Not coincidentally, points for these exchanges were largely awarded to the aggressors.
Nobody was especially effective either night. Biden, who had performed well against Paul Ryan, seems to just smirk his way through most exchanges.
The hipsters, Beto O’Rourke and Pete Buttigieg, don’t perform well when someone interrupts their inspirational speeches.
