What? Nobody Watched That Pathetic Republican Debate Last Night?
It was b-b-b-bad! LOL

I mean. Ron Paul comes off as unhinged. He would legalize heroin among other things. And that former Governor from from from, was it New Mexico? There are simply no words to describe that guy, except I wondered, how the hell does someone like that become a governor? He kept being rude and butting in because he felt he wasn't getting enough attention. I sat there thinking, "d'uh" now that you drew my attention by trying to butt in, I can see why they're trying to freeze you out.

Tim Pawlenty... well, I don't know what to say either.

Rick Santorum - wordless again.

The most dynamic one there (and believe me, that's not saying much) was Herman Cain, the former pizza CEO. He's got as much chance as... well there simply is no metaphor.

What a farce. I felt bad for the reporters (even though they are asses) for having to appear to be serious and sober through that comedy show.

Wonder why Mitt didn't show up? I thought Bachman was exploritoriating?

They did a Frank Luntz thingy afterward and nobody except 6 people wanted Trump in there. LOL

I wish they had the thing a week ago. Trump would have won. LOL The putzes in Luntz' panel would have enthusiastically raised their hands for Trump. LOL

What a hilarity.

2. Sometimes I just can't deal with the hate
I'm a political animal. I love the give and take. but. There I times I just can't take the crap.
So I tune out.
With two weary years to go...I feel I have the freedom to ignore GOP ranting for a while.

5. Yeah, they spent a considerable amount of time trying to
parse the Bin Laden thing. The meme they were pushing is that torture worked yet Obama was against torture so he's weak on national security.

"he wants to prosecute the Seals for slapping terrorists, he's against the very thing that captured Bin laden".

The things they come up with, you just can't make it up.

4. The best joke therre was the name drop of FAIR AND BALANCED.
It got quite a chuckle.

The Republicans dont know it yet, but if you throw out fools for cannon fodder, allowing a Dem in to take the blame for all they knew was coming to ruin, and he succeeds, you throw some more fools out for cannon fodder because he is viewed as having immunity, next thing you know, your party is IRRELEVANT.

6. I just wish they'd get their shit together and narrow the field.
I wanna start focusing on the "real" potentials, not these chest-thumpers. I try to get a real feel for who they might begin to rally around by stalking Conservative sites, but they're all over the place. Oddly enough, despite hilarious poll numbers, Palin seems to be the favorite. I do have to remind myself that these are mostly the RW fringe. The ones that have trouble spelling her name, much less knowing a damn thing about politics and wtf is really going on in our country. The rest are still hoping for a wildcard that will shock and awe the world. Good luck.

Please, someone tell the right to get serious about this so I can start laughing.

10. Good grief.
I'm not sure whether that should make me laugh or cry. It doesn't say much for the other (less than) half of our country.

I've been checking around a bit and I don't see any of them crowing about the "debate". Yeah, that wasn't a debate since the person they were "debating" wasn't there. He was too busy running the country. It was more like "Who hates our President more" tantrum fest.

7. Was watching Lawrence/Rachel when daughter called,
Edited on Fri May-06-11 09:19 AM by elleng
exclaiming, in 'pain,' watching idiot repugs. She lives in Joisey, may move next door to PA. I commiserated, told her I'd just heard condi trying to justify Iraq debacle, + told her next in MY queue was The West Wing!

Daughter started conversation, 'Do you have Fox?' so I knew something was REALLY wrong!!! 'Never touch the stuff,' I said.
