That one little question the moderators all forgot to ask at that long fourth Democratic debate

Three hours, twelve Democrats, and a supposedly comprehensive line of questions from CNN's and the New York Times' finest.  So went last night's Democratic debate, and it was a boring one, so pat yourself on the back if you didn't watch.

Even Sen. Lindsey Graham, who's endured all kinds of droning in his long career, couldn't take it:

Despite all kinds of questions — on Big Tech, taxing the rich, socialized health care, gun grabs, impeachment, getting along with Republicans  a big one was left out: illegal immigration.

Even Julián Castro was upset, but not quite for the reasons normal people noticed the omission:

So they had questions galore, going all the way down to Ellen DeGeneres and George W. Bush sitting together at a ballgame, but somehow didn't quite think the voters needed to know about their positions on illegals.

It's not as though the debate moderators and their Democratic Party bosses were trying to not repeat themselves.  Questions about gun control, taxing the rich, and health care were already asked ad nauseam at earlier debates, and these got asked again, which is why little new information came of this one, but nobody wanted a replay of that first debate, when all hands went up when asked if illegals should be entitled to free taxpayer-paid health care.

What we learn from this omission is that Democrats' previous championing of illegals is bombing with voters.  At debate one, they were all in fine fettle, advocating de facto open borders, offering such foreigners a banquet of free stuff such as health care to reward them for thumbing their noses at U.S. immigration law, and decriminalizing breaking into U.S. territory without authorization.  Remember this?

Or this headline that came of it?

We learn two things: Democrats don't want voters thinking about their stance on illegal immigration, so one can only hope more questions get asked in that direction.  I noticed this phenomenon earlier in the 2018 California ballot-harvesting races in Orange and San Diego Counties, by the way — Democrats galore going at each other, and not one word on illegals from any of them.

Two, the press is in it for the Democrats.  Reporters know very well not to ask the vote-losing questions (global warming is another, though some Dems tried to throw it into other questions) that drive voters from Democrats.  They've got it all planned.  They've looked, and they aren't happy with what they've found.  The Democratic leadership, meanwhile, has read the internal polls and knows the same thing.  Now we see the coordination.  In it, together, collaborating to get Democrats elected.
