This is how cynical Republicans are. Forget facts, forget what really happened. Just write the outcome up and post it on the Internet regardless of what might actually happen. And then, for good measure, be sure to publish it ahead of the actual debate.

Yep, see that! Pence hit Tim Kaine hard on Hillary’s scandals and the economy, BEFORE HE TOOK THE STAGE.
That’s some magic voodoo right there.

Good job there, RNC. At least if the measure of a good job is being as completely cynical and calculating as is possible.
