I like you better when you're funny

I was going to talk about the debate, but honestly, it's all been said before. It was actually the better debate of the three, but I think the result was essentially the same, and therefore unnecessary to speak about.

Twenty-four hours after the third and final debate, the two candidates were telling jokes in white ties and tails. For anybody who didn't see it, it was actually pretty funny. Both candidates were given good material to work with.

Humorous self deprication is generally an effective trope, and last night was one of those nights where America was treated to the reminder that this campaign could have been a lot more civil than it has been.

Since the whole thing was an illusion, I guess it's fitting that they were dressed as magicians. Still, here's the video.
