Twitter lightens up somber Democratic debate

Blaaaaaaaaaaaargh, you guys. How bad was that debate for those of us who are supposed to write funny things about it? The answer is very, very bad. I emailed my editors and hour into it and said, "Guys, these people are giving me nothing. I have no jokes. None." There were three calm, reasonable people talking reasonably and calmly about issues and not one of them called Mexicans rapists or belittled women. What is a humor writer supposed to do?! So instead, I went to Twitter to give you thier jokes. Enjoy.
