Earlier this week, I revealed that the next Democratic candidates’ debate will culminate in a “Final Jeopardy”-like question in which the candidate who can come up with the most terms to pad out the longest possible LGBT+ acronym will be declared the Party’s 2020 nominee. Now, the DNC announced this morning that the debate’s final question will be phrased as:
“Who (or what) are (or is) the backbone of our democracy?”
Senator Elizabeth Warren demonstrated that she has been practicing relentlessly and is rounding into mid-season form:
Thank you, @BlackWomxnFor! Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy and I don’t take this endorsement lightly. I'm committed to fighting alongside you for the big, structural change our country needs. https://t.co/KqWsVoRYMb

In other news, Senator Warren’s press secretary denied persistent reports that she remains a crypto-Republican whose career since 1987 has been devoted to trolling Democrats by acting out the absurdities of their Coalition of the Fringes identity politics.
