He’s currently the Lt Governor.  I’m sure there plenty of data on his capacity before the stroke.

I've seen some video clips. He wasn't anything like that.

If you're new to Fetterman, the scuttlebutt is that he lived with his parents, until his sister sold him a house for a dollar. His parents gave him an allowance while he was mayor, as the job paid peanuts. Sounds like he's mostly lived off them. It's been reported he only occasionally showed up for his mayoral duties. The town council/board/whatever didn't like him very much. (He was kind of an outsider to the town, so no wonder.)

And Keith Olberman is absolutely losing his *expletive deleted*it over the coverage of the Fetterman debacle.

He's screeching about NBC now being a voice for Republican talking points and...

He's decrying the use of anonymous sources.

The man whose "coverage" in the lead up to the 2016 election was essentially one huge anonymous source.

Anyone know of any updated polls done since the debate? I'm not finding anything.

I've actually come to enjoy reading Olberman's rants for the entertainment value. He is the textbook definition of an internet bully, constantly threatening to beat people up while he sits at his computer typing all that stuff with his weakling noodle arms. My 10 year old grand niece could kick that guys ass with one hand tied behind her back.

Combine that with his mental impairments and he is almost the perfect dem 2024 candidate. Only things missing, so far, are a dress and high heels.

"We're sorry to hear that the Fetterman campaign was unhappy with how the closed captioning system that they requested was working on Tuesday," said Brittany Yanick, the Oz campaign's communications director, in a statement Thursday morning. "We're happy to do a second debate any time, and let the Fetterman campaign source a closed captioner that they believe is of better quality," Yanick offered.

During any additional debate, Fetterman probably wants some competent person in his camp to provide him with answers - call it a live teleprompter - which he may be able to read directly during the debate.

The condition should be that the closed captioning system is recorded by the R side.  Not that Oz can see it during the debate, but that it is recorded and R's can show it if someone is feeding him answers.

So I guess this is where we are:

Quote
The Washington Post
@washingtonpost
Whatever voters ultimately decide at the polls, Fetterman’s performance marks something of a milestone for the disability community, which remains underrepresented at every level of elected office.

Because lets put mentally defective* people in critical roles and roles that require quick thought, action, and responsibility. There are simply certain jobs that require either physical superiority, mental acuity, or both. Saying that "anyone can do anything" will lead to disaster, or even death.


* I know that term sounds cruel, but it's accurate. It's not a knock on people who have physical or mental disabilities. It's a statement of fact that certain jobs require certain minimum abilities, and going all Harrison Bergeron is going to be extremely detrimental to society. There are plenty of other jobs that disabled people can and should be encouraged to do - even critical jobs - that don't put others at risk. For that matter, we have a number of elected officials with physical disabilities (which don't affect what a politician does), so you can't say the disabled aren't represented.

If you ran a dog turd under the democrat banner the Washington Post would endorse it.

Olberman.

I don't get that vibe from Fetterman.

Of course not. They're celebrating the fact that he's a crip.

Oh, man...

Fetterman vs Abbot.

And pro football teams should start drafting paraplegics for quarterback, too.

The ADA requires employers to make "reasonable accommodation," so let's see the NFL step up.

Oh, and the NBA and major league baseball, too.

Major League Baseball has a long and proud history of employing many, many disabled individuals, virtually all of them in the umpiring ranks.

There was Joe West, who had severe narcissistic personality disorder. He's now retired.

There's Angel Hernandez and any number of other current umpires, all of whom are blind as *expletive deleted*ing bats.

And then there's Rob Manfred, MLB commissioner, who just an incredible *expletive deleted*ing retard.

"The InsiderAdvantage poll now has Oz up by three points over Fetterman"

Whoa. Freaking WHOA.

That's the first poll I know of in which Oz has led Fetterman.

Apparently Schumer and Biden were caught discussing the debate on a hot mike and one of them opined that it "wasn't that bad" for Democrats. They may be rethinking that.
