If You Bothered to Play “Human Rights Presidential Debate Bingo” Last Night, You Lost. Big Time.
Uh… if you ”bothered” to play Human Rights Presidential Debate Bingo last night, you should instead have “bothered” to pay more attention to what’s going on around you. Or just stop pretending that you care about the political process, and admit that you just like to complain.
Last night’s debate was by rule specifically on domestic policy. Going in, those of us who do pay attention knew that human rights issues would not be on the table.
Try any of the next three debates, each of which will contain a foreign policy element in which “human rights” could be introduced as a topic.
If they do, they will both agree on them all.
Amnesty International released a human rights bingo card in advance of last night’s presidential debate. There were no winners. (Sorry.)
For those of you who don’t play debate drinking games, something to keep in mind for next time.
