First Republican Primary “Debate” open thread

The “Phony Express” clip seems most appropriate here…dunno why…

If there’s enough alcohol on the planet, a couple people might take on the Alternet GOP drinking game, but — FAIR WARNING — if you do, you will die.


You have been warned!!

Here’s the deal: Β All y’all are on your own for watching the Clown Car Clusterfuck, but please feel free to leave your in-the-moment thoughts and impressions in the comments section. Β Sarcasm, temper tantrums, and snide comments are welcome — in fact, they’re encouraged!

Do your worst, my Critters and Zoosters, cuz you know the GOP clowns will be doing the same.

Hat tip to our EV for the Three Stooges idea!!

  1. The Trump drink quotes alone should get everyone hammered. Having lived in New York all of my civilian life (and being subjected to him in our local media), I can tell you I’ll be the most surprised if he doesn’t say all of those things at least once.

  2. Cool I can see and hear Ms Graham…. ugh ….

    And he connected foodstamps to ISIL somehow.. Is that a drinkable offense?

    • I know of that person, ‘LIBertea’. He has issues. The site may be Ok, but I wouldn’t put any info on there for a log in.

  3. William Devane: The banks got bailed out, I didn’t, did you?

    Leave it to Fox to even have ADS I have to holler at.

  4. They really are going for the widdle baby heartstrings, aren’t they?

    Take the money from PP and put it into women’s health care — like Planned Parenthood!

  5. Why Carly, you paid all those employees whose jobs you lost the same 40 mn parachute that you got because all are equal? I didn’t notice.

    • He forgot the ball tickle. When the camera cut back to Jon Stewart doing that the other night I almost died laughing.

  6. Scarboy and Tweety yelled at each other. A guy who won’t shut up vs. a guy who can’t shut up. It still amazes me that anyone actually pays for the “privilege” of watching cable “news”.

      • The only way I would even consider subscribing to cable is if they offered ala carte service. And, even then, Discovery, TLC, and THC would have to return to their former ways of actually offering educational and informative programming instead of 50 weeks a year of religious “history” liberally sprinkled with reality shows and ghost hunting.

  7. BTW. We really should call it free advertising rather than a “debate”. Debate assumes that there’s a chance that the stronger argument will change the minds of those in doubt about an issue. One couldn’t put a dent in a rightwhiner’s opinion with a freaking sledge hammer.

  8. We’re 18 tril in debt because the wealthy don’t pay taxes, and everybody else don’t make enough to pay taxes

  9. I forgot to cross post my tweets. I’ll do them all now.

  10. Forgive me, but they’re not worth my time really. I need to sleep. Have fun, it’s been good to be back with you all for a bit. I’ll be back.

    • He must have an aide who keeps his hand over his mouth in the Senate chamber until it’s his turn to speak.

  11. We have forty more minutes before TDS, and that sucker is supposed to be about an hour long, if I heard correctly.

  12. BTW, tonight is just a pre-season scrimmage, for US! We have to be tougher than ever before these are over and the primaries start.

  13. JEB!: My state’s economy was double the growth of the national govt (who my brother was miserably failing at running)

  14. What determines your obligation to the government, in your job, depends on the legal language in the state, county and city licenses, you or your employer agreed to when you accepted the licenses. Your religion may require you to abdicate the job, but it doesn’t absolve you of those legal obligations.

  15. I don’t think we have enough nuclear weapons in our arsenal to do all the bombing these people wanna do. Everything according to them requires a military strike.

    • Oh we have enough nuclear warheads to destroy the world. The powers that be want conventional bombs and bullets along with all the other equipment the troops need, things that need to be replaced frequently.

    • Hillary Clinton found a brilliant way to troll the Republican candidates during their big debate

      Hillary Clinton isn’t on stage to defend herself, but she still managed to mock many of the candidates appearing in the first Republican presidential debates on Thursday night.

      Clinton’s campaign set up a press filing room for reporters covering the debates at her headquarters in Brooklyn, New York. The walls of the room were covered with posters showing past statements from several of the Republican candidates praising Clinton.

      There were quotes from frontrunner Donald Trump, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R), businesswoman Carly Fiorina, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida), and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R).

      Sounds like she has a fine group of ratfuckers on her staff.

  16. Watched for half an hour and quit to take a bath. I feel almost clean. Both I and a conservative friend consider Trump to be one of the horseman of the apocalypse, maybe two if his hair is counted as a separate entity. We plan to start stockpiling weapons.

    • The only way to follow a debate is reading theZoo!
      I didn’t have to look at any of those liars or spit on the monitor!

      Thanks for watching and resporting!
