I religiously watch the debates in real time whenever I can, because I want to have my own reaction to what is said before I hear the play-by-play and reviews that follow. (Sometimes my initial reactions are stupid, which is also sobering.) But, I think I’m gonna take a pass this Monday.

Some friends have invited me out to a movie, and it sounds like a healthier idea because even the thought of tuning in makes me feel a little sick to my stomach.

And I’m Canadian. I can’t imagine the anxiety Americans are feeling right now.
