Compared to the chaotic debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, last night's debate between vice presidential candidates was a fairly standard affair.
Both Senator Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence appeared prepared, focused, and calm as the event progressed. While it wasn't necessarily free of interruptions, question dodging, and disregard of time limits, it remained focused on the issues and calling it exhausting to watch would be something of a stretch.
Under circumstances like these, even subtly out-of-the-ordinary things can become much more noticeable. So if you're wondering why you woke up today to find everyone across social media so fixated on a fly, that likely has a lot to do with it.
