Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will finally debate at Hofstra University, and it starts at 9 p.m. ET. Hillary’s team is tasked with the unenviable chore of getting her through the 90 minute debate without a coughing fit or worse, and Team Trump is putting a last-minute application of Flex Seal on his hair. It’s on!

Yes, because Hillary’s proven herself to be such a beacon of honesty. In any case, an FTD “Good Lapdog Bouquet” is en route to CNN’s office as we speak.

No detail is being left to chance. Even the lecterns are made so they’ll look proportional in comparison to the candidate standing behind them:


By debate time the space underneath Hillary’s lectern will be stuffed full of Cepacol and a GPS display tracking the whereabouts of Gennifer Flowers.

If Hillary was unable to get a smaller lectern made in time for the debate, her campaign was prepared to borrow Mike Dukakis’s Podium-Buddy™ lift:

Open thread for debate discussion. Have at it!
