Twelve Democratic presidential primary debates? Twelve? Starting next June???
On the one hand, that’s 12 opportunities to watch the 50 million Democrats running for president humiliate themselves — and each other — on the national stage.

On the other hand, doesn’t this constitute cruel and unusual punishment or something?

This is not smart. A ton of us are going to be exhausted before the 4th debate.

An idea so bad, only the DNC could come up with it. https://t.co/aZcNaD8EfZ

Help us, SMOD. You’re our only hope.
Given the massive number of Dem POTUS candidates, the debates should begin much earlier than June 2019. Hey, Dec. 26 is wide open–I'm talking 2018, next week. https://t.co/cc9ckoaaud

Don’t give theme any ideas. Except maybe this one:
Idea: In lieu of debates, we watch all the Democratic candidates live together on an island for two weeks ahead of the Iowa caucuses.

Oh dear God:
NEW: Perez nixes 'undercard' debates for 2020 primary. If there are too many candidates for one stage, then there will be two debates on consecutive nights and candidates will be sorted randomly. https://t.co/xh6m6Pu18y

Dammit, SMOD! What the hell is taking you so long?
