I suppose it is both fitting and proper that on a night when liberal candidates reinforce the fact that they never, ever move on from anything that Fox’s Scream Queens would resurrect one of the most tired and lame liberal talking points of the early 2000s.

In an episode titled “Pumpkin Patch,” Hester Ulrich (Lea Michele) explains to her nerdy friend how she plans to control and manipulate the “Chanels” (the Mean Girls-like clique that the show is based on) and likens her behind-the-scenes manipulation to that supposedly greatest of all political ventriloquists, Dick Cheney.

CNN spent more than 10 minutes pressing GOP candidates about Planned Parenthood during the previous debate – but moderators couldn’t bear to mention the abortion giant once during Tuesday’s Democratic primary debate.

Not even after Hillary Clinton brought up the topic.

In the first minutes after the first 2016 Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday night, CNN’s chief political analyst Gloria Borger sang the praises of Hillary Clinton for having performed “extraordinarily well” and made herself “so adept at making herself the candidate of both experience and change.”

During Tuesday’s debate on CNN, Don Lemon  offered a question from a liberal audience member about how unreasonable Republicans can be. Panelist Lemon read a query from a woman in Manassas, quoting, “President Obama has had a difficult time getting Republicans to compromise on just about every agenda.” Lemon continued, “How will you approach this going forward and will it be any different? Senator?”

During the Democratic debate Tuesday night, candidates were asked the question, “Do black lives matter or do all lives matter?” This mind-numbing question brought out gushing answers of affirmation, “Well of course black lives matter!” from Sanders, Clinton and O’Malley, who all went on to lament that we “need to do more.” Of course that PC Q&A was received with gusto from the media elite who took to Twitter to share their enthusiasm:

Heading out to commercial break shortly before 10:30 p.m. Eastern, CNN Democratic debate moderator Anderson Cooper cracked a joke that implied the debate audience was full of potheads, or at least former ones.

ABC's Fresh Off the Boat is a sitcom about a Taiwanese family grateful to be making the most of the opportunity American life has to offer. At least the mom and dad appreciate the U.S., the grandmother hasn't bothered to learn English and is apparently racist. In this scene, Grandma Huang is in an argument with her daughter-in-law Jessica about their relationship and money that Jessica wants to borrow to invest in a house. When Jessica tries to argue that she has been generously taking care of her mother-in-law while their white neighbor Honey doesn't even know where her own mother is, Grandma makes the valid point that it is her obligation, but then lets loose with a racist!

On the subject of illegal immigration, CNN's debate went left with debate panelist Juan Carlos Lopez hitting Bernie Sanders for not being liberal enough. Lopez demanded, “Senator Sanders, in 2013 you voted for immigration reform. But in 2007 when the Democrats controlled Congress and the Bush White House was on board, you voted against it.” He then attacked the senator: “Why should Latino voters trust you now when you left them at the altar at the moment when reform was very close?”

Rallying to the aid of fellow 2016 Democratic presidential opponent Hillary Clinton during the first debate Tuesday night, Democratic socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) angrily lamented the focus on Clinton’s e-mail scandal and berated the media for covering Clinton’s “damn e-mails.”

With her first debate question of the night, CNN’s Dana Bash wondered if Hillary Clinton’s vote on the Iraq War could simply be forgiven. Talking to another Democratic candidate, Lincoln Chafee, Bash lectured, “You were the only Republican in the Senate to vote against the Iraq War. You say Secretary Clinton should be disqualified from the presidency because she voted in favor of using force in Iraq.” Bash added, “She has since said her vote was a mistake. Why isn't that good enough?”

Life is so unfair. "The rich" live in nicer places, have nicer amenities, drive nicer cars, etc., etc.

Here's the last straw: Now they even have better breakfast sandwiches. But never fear: The press's inequality police are on patrol to supply the outrage.

Tuesday may be the Democratic debate night, but that didn’t stop an angry Chris Matthews from trashing Marco Rubio as a “pathetic” “sock puppet.” Before the CNN debate began, the MSNBC Hardball anchor derided conservative donor Sheldon Adelson as a “sugar daddy” who will likely endorse the Republican.

On Tuesday night ahead of the first 2016 Democratic presidential debate, ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News put forth their best efforts to paint a favorable scene for Hillary Clinton by touting her as “relatable” while “need[ing] to show voters a different side” as she shoulders the “burden” of trying “to protect her front-runner status.”
