But first, Gov. Huckabee, right about when the debate hit BLM:
ALL lives matter. It's time we stop burning cars, shooting cops, & recognize that life is a gift from God. #DemDebate— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) October 14, 2015
I'm not 100% on what cop shootings he means. There was that nice young couple of meth-heads associated with the Bundy ranch--no, wait, they were white. There was that one African-American guy who had a long record of depression and violence who took out his girlfriend, and then randomly killed two police officers like he was almost make a statement--except that was probably to deflect from the other screw-up in his life. And then...yeah all life is precious, but I don't think Mike Huckabee is getting who is being actively harmed by a biased system that protects officers who commit brutality. If he got what it was like to see people being annihilated on the street and stopped to think how often it happened and whether it ever needed to happen: he might want to hit something or set something on fire, too. If he cared about all people--which includes black ones.
(You can not expect better from this man on race, though. His whole head is like "Forget it, Jake, it's Gooberville.")
Basically, we are having a Democratic debate where a Republican is losing on Twitter. I mean like:
How are you losing a debate you aren't even in? https://t.co/WNd2ZKOkS0— Jamilah Lemieux (@JamilahLemieux) October 14, 2015

Under O’Malley’s leadership, Maryland increased renewable energy generation by 41% and grew new solar and wind industries. #demdebate— Martin O'Malley (@MartinOMalley) October 14, 2015
Vixen: I kind of want to take Gov O'Malley home to meet my Mamma.
Reality: He's running for president, not your boyfriend. He's married, and you're married. Be reasonable.
Vixen: My Mamma would like him. He has pretty arms.
Gun debate is up. Did you people see that Martin O'Malley brought guns on stage?? #DemDebate pic.twitter.com/73XOeaXUg0— Jennifer Bendery (@jbendery) October 14, 2015
No politician should interfere with a woman's personal medical decisions. Full stop. #DemDebate #ImWithHer— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) October 14, 2015
Yes. Flat-out yes.
Hillary Clinton has gotten better than she was in 2008. I like her.
