Watch tonight as the Democratic Vice Presidential candidate, Tim "ArKaineine" Kaine squares off against Mike "Pencer" Pence in a Pokemon Battle debate moderated by CBSN anchor Elaine Quijano.

Streams here:

https://www.c-span.org/presidentialDebate/

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVXqNcW_-HA

The debate is 90 minutes long, divided into ten minute segments. Quijano will ask a question, give each candidate two minutes to answer, and use the remaining time for rebuttals/followups. Expect both candidates to use the questions primarily to make themselves seem more affable and tie their opponent to their unpopular running mates.

More info.

You should be able to watch it anywhere, but you should watch it with us!

Discord is a free chat/voice client. I will be moderating the chat but I will not be voice chatting tonight most likely. Come to the chat room for real time discussion and dank memes.


IN THIS THREAD


Please don't post pure reactions like "wow" or "Did he really say that" and such without providing context for your remark. Reaction posts like that are more fitting for the chat room. The thread will already be moving fast.

Likewise no tweet dumps unless you have some actual commentary to share.

Many different issues will come up during the debate, obviously, if you find yourself getting into the weeds of a policy discussion like the merits of charter schools please take it to PM or start a thread.

GROUND RULES STILL APPLY


No image macros.
No satire links.
Don't be a dick.

Thanks to SIG for the OP!

    I approve of this Pokemon choice for Pence because it doesn't believe in evolving.

    What will be worse for Pence: Doing poorly and being thrown under the bus by Trump as the sole reason he lost the election, or doing well and upstaging Trump causing him to do god knows what to assert his dominance.

    There's still no Pence bio on the Trump campaign's website.

    Self-righteousness is incompatible with coalition building.

    My local Hillary campaign office is having a viewing party downtown, but on the other hand I can get cirrhosis at home just as easily as with strangers. Anyone ever been to one? I can't help but feel like unless I was already a regular volunteer, it'd just be kinda awkward.

    I have to pick my cousin up from the airport later so I need to get though this debate on a single beer.

    God help me.

    Do we even need to watch this?

    Apparently Mike Pence already won it!

    Pre-debate spin on MSNBC seems to be "Pence is not literally a fascist so that's going to reassure voters."

    Self-righteousness is incompatible with coalition building.

    How's this going? I was planning on watching but I have a killer fucking headache and am having a hard time motivating myself to get out of bed.

    Wait wait wait wait... I didn't realize that Mike Pence was part of why Indiana was pushing the anti-gay bills a while back, which is why Gencon has been pondering changing locations since 2015.

    I wanted Tim to win, but now I want him to Dad like he's never Dad'd before. Destroy Pence, Tim! Do it for us! FOR GENCON!

    First they came for the Muslims, and we said NOT TODAY, MOTHERFUCKER!

    Mike pence is virulently anti-anything not heterosexual.

  • ForarForar #432 Toronto, Ontario, CanadaRegistered User regular
    A friend (shoutout to Morgan) pointed it out to me a few moments ago and now I just want to see Pence left a weeping shell of his former self while Tim pats him on the shoulder and tells him it's okay and that they're going to go get ice cream when this is all over.

    Oh my god they cross matched their ties

    I'm so into these dads gonna dad it up only I do not like pence.

  • CogCog What'd you expect? Registered User regular
    MSNBC's pregame on the web showed clips of people

    1) Utterly unable to choose between two of the most drastically different candidates ever
    2) Expressing support for Trump because he'll keep jobs in the US (without apparently being aware he's never had a product made here)
    3) Unable to recognize Kaine or Pence from photos

    I just..

    I just want to fucking shake people.

  • MorkathMorkath Registered User, __BANNED USERS regular
    It's on now.

    Nothing against Holt, but it's a shame they didn't swap the moderators for these two debates. I think Trump's meltdown could have been even more entertaining/self destructive had it been a woman trying to correct him.

    Why'd they reverse which side they are appearing on? Is it so the Dems on the left of the tv and the Repub is on the right? Looks really weird to see them looking off the tv screen

    Strong shot at framing the debate, Tim. Almost completely ignored the question, but otherwise good.

    We're reading Rifts. You should too. You know you want to. Now With Ninjas!

    They tried to bury us. They didn't know that we were seeds. 2018 Midterms. Get your shit together.
