Joe was more sleepy than mean…

But, this time,  it was Kamala that got Kamala-ed.

============

On balance the debate was pretty boring and uninformative.

The gang of many tried to pile on Biden

Joe was wobbly and a bit tired … but fended off the punches … often by putting up his strategic ObamaShield … saying implicitly: “If you attack me, you’re attacking Barack”.

For example, did you notice how Joe hung with “ObamaCare” … but other candidates kept referring to the “Affordable Care Act”?

I expect that’ll be Biden’s go forward strategy: wrap himself with an Obama cloak … and trade on borrowed adulation.

Basically, I think Biden played to a tie.

The bigger story last night was Tulsi Gabbard taking Kamala Harris to the hoop…

============

When given an opening, Gabbard ripped Kamala’s record as a prosecutor and as California’s AG:

“Sen. Harris says she’s proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she’ll be a prosecutor president, but I’m deeply concerned about this record,” Gabbard said.

“There are too many examples to cite but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana.”

She also blasted Harris for maintaining the cash bail system which, she argued, disproportionately hurt poor people.

Gabbard accused Harris of “keeping prisoners beyond their sentence in order to use them as cheap labor” … and for “blocking evidence that would have “freed an innocent man from death row.”

Ouch.

Kamala’s defense reduced to “Just doing my job”.

Gabbard countered with a  TKO line:

“The bottom line is, Senator Harris, when you were in a position to make a difference and impact in these people’s lives, you did not.”

Game.  Match.
