The only thing left is that Meet the Press/Spongebob crossover and I can die happy… Anyway, here are my observations from the first presidential debate: Hillary’s first answer was like a keyword orgasm.

Random Thoughts from 08-11-16 1. Why Trevor Noah Makes Me Sad Just watched a Trevor Noah clip from The Daily Show. He’s a talented, funny, likable guy, but in the wrong job. He’s been cornered into doing a Jon Stewart impression, talking about issues he’s neither expert in or passionate (more…)
