‘The Daily Show’ Debate Live Stream Is Literally Just A Zen Garden

Leave it to “The Daily Show” to broadcast the most bearable version of Wednesday night’s presidential debate.  Instead of running a split screen of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton going at it, “The Daily Show” aired on Facebook Live two candles behind podiums in a Zen garden.

The Last Debate: How Low Will It Go?

Donald Trump’s Sniffles Were A Major Talking Point Of The Debate. Again.

Donald Trump’s sniffles just won’t go away.  Sniffles punctuated the GOP nominee’s performance in the first presidential debate, and he succumbed to them once again during Sunday night’s battle with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Seth Meyers’ Spoof VP Debate Is Much Easier To Watch Than The Real Thing

Unlike other moderators, “Late Night” host Seth Meyers retained control of the candidates during his spoof vice-presidential debate on Thursday. While squabbling and talking over each other characterized Tuesday’s actual debate between Indiana Gov. Mike Pence (R) and Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), Meyers managed to keep the duo in check during his hilarious parody. By splicing clips of the candidates’ answers after […]

Bernie Sanders’ Suit Sparks A Debate Like We Haven’t Seen Since #TheDress

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) wore a suit during Wednesday’s Democratic debate that sparked a debate all its own. Much like #TheDress, Sanders’ suit didn’t seem to be one definitive color.

FLINT, Mich. — The campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination is supposedly over, with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton clearly ahead of Vermont Sen.

GOP Debate Will Focus On Economic Issues, Fox Business Pledges

Why The Holocaust Has No Place in the Gun Debate

With the campaign season in full swing, the debate over gun control laws once again has taken center stage.

What We’d Ask The GOP Candidates In A Debate

Thank God Labor Day has come and gone. After such a sleepy summer, maybe we’ll finally have some political news to cover in this boring, routine presidential race.  The two sentences above are examples of what we ultra-professional writers call “facetious humor.”  In truth, the first furlong of the race has been INSANE.

How the Left Can Put the Planned Parenthood Debacle Behind It and Restore Integrity to the Abortion Debate

I grew up in a strict Catholic home, where there was zero tolerance for of an alternative take on abortion. Partially in reaction, I’ve been pro-choice ever since.

Rumble on the Cuyahoga: The First 2016 GOP Primary Debate

Now that was a debate. Back in 2012 it was the live audience that got rowdy at the presidential primary debates. This time it was the folks onstage, candidates and moderators alike.

CLEVELAND — Heading into the first Republican presidential debate on Thursday night, much of the talk among the hundreds of journalists and pundits who gathered here centered around whether Donald Trump would tone down the bombast in favor of projecting a kinder, gentler, more “presidential” image.
