What’s the point?

Finally, the last of the presidential debates was over. The media industry kicked up another notch on political coverage, desperately seeking fresh angles. We all pretend that there are still undecided voters who are to choose the next president. We also pretend these debates mattered.

Voters. Who among you changed after watching the debates? Was your decision formed by them?

Thanks to the strange electoral college system, the race is already over for all but less than 10 “swing states.” None will settled by the debates. “Ground games,” that get people to cast their vote, will decide.

The debates are just entertainment.
