I’m done for the day at the university — I’ve still got hours of grading to do — and I’m recuperating at home. My voice is gone! I’m hungry, but I have to do dishes first. Then grading.
I finally caught up on last night’s debate. I didn’t watch it, so I’m getting second-hand impressions. Mainly what I’m hearing is that Kamala Harris was the clear winner, but that she was also somewhat restrained and didn’t disembowel Pence on stage like I’d hoped she would. I also heard there were sound political reasons why she was cautious…in particular, that a black woman would never be able to get away with that kind of assertiveness. I would like to point out, though, that no matter how meek and demure she might have been, the Right was going to accuse her of being mean and unladylike.
Also, in a surprising twist of an argument, she isn’t even black. You can trust Dave Rubin, he assures us he isn’t racist at all before springing that on us. She is apparently Indian and Jamaican, which some people say isn’t really black.
Dave Rubin, after claiming "a lot of people are saying [Kamala Harris is] not even Black," says: "This has nothing to do with the complexion of her skin, or her boobs, or anything else. She's just deeply unlikeable." pic.twitter.com/wi1Jh2pSK3

Wow. I am so looking forward to Trump using that line of defense.
Also, Harris was “unlikable”, says the smarmiest, sleaziest, dumbest pundit on YouTube.
