Oh, what the hell — let’s take a breather from present-day complexities to go back and relive that glorious 2020 VP debate!
It was a horrifying gaffe, of course, but once the debate commission realized they’d completely forgotten about the Pootie Party candidate, they quickly recovered by setting up a scratching post between the Plexiglas partitions. Problem solved!
Things started out great. Andy adores Kamala and unconsciously acted as a kind of one-cat Greek chorus for every important point she made.
She, in turn, kindly took Andy under her wing and gave him pointers for the debate, stressing the importance of telling the voting public his personal story…
Okay, maybe he laid it on a little thick there. Anyway, when it was Mike Pence’s turn to speak, his two rivals could be seen whispering and giggling together.
Andy’s pre-debate jitters had completely left him. He felt confident and in control.
And then it happened.
Oh. My. God.
You’re familiar with the chattering noise a cat makes when he spots winged prey through the window, right?
Kamala tried to steady him, to pull him back from the precipice…
Of course, wouldn’t you know it, the moderator chose this precise moment to ask him a question about the Trump administration’s response to coronavirus. It was the ultimate test of will. He did his best to drive away ALL THOUGHT of what was happening in the next cubicle and focus only on his reply.
