Sorry. I’m debated out. If anything interesting happens, I’ll write about it afterward. In the meantime, consider this an open debate thread.

POST-DEBATE UPDATE: There’s just not much to say about how it turned out. Hillary Clinton did fine, and she was obviously positioning herself for the general election, not really participating in a Democratic primary debate. Sanders did fine too, and O’Malley reached peak annoyance. It’s time to face reality and hang up your spurs, Martin.

(On a related note, it was interesting that Sanders and Clinton were pretty buddy-buddy during the breaks even after they’d been slagging each other a few minutes before. Neither one of them wanted anything to do with O’Malley, though. He left early too. Apparently no one in the crowd even wanted to shake his hand.)

The dynamics of the race weren’t changed at all. Hillary will win and Sanders will get a healthy chunk of the vote.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and it's truly crunch time: About 15 percent of our yearly online giving usually comes in during the final week of the year, and in "No Cute Headlines or Manipulative BS," we explain why we simply can't afford to come up short right now.

The bottom line: Corporations and powerful people with deep pockets will never sustain the type of journalism Mother Jones exists to do. And advertising or profit-driven ownership groups will never make time-intensive, in-depth reporting viable.

That's why donations big and small make up 74 percent of our budget this year. There is no backup to keep us going, no alternate revenue source, no secret benefactor. If readers don’t donate, we won’t be here. It's that simple.

And if you can help us out with a donation right now, all online gifts will be matched thanks to an incredibly generous matching gift pledge.
