    3. The third #DemDebate might just be an appetizer to a bigger, badder, annoying-er fourth debate that includes the whole gang plus Tom Steyer

    4. In a surprising turn of events, Mitch McConnell supporters are assholes

    5. Donald Trump is in favor of all the positions on gun control except the one where we do something beyond talk

    6. Have we started impeachment hearings without knowing it?
