I’m not watching another GOP Debate

Especially not one that will star Newt Gingrinch. If you held a gun to my head and told me to choose Newt or Obama, I’d tell you to pull the trigger.

You can watch the debate if you want. This is an open thread.

    So I’m raking leaves this morning and the neighbor comes out and we’re talking. Then she says “Wow, you got your Christmas lights up already!”

    Uh . . . yeah, sure. I was really early this year.

    So I plug them in to check them and nada planada. So I go to Walmart and price some new ones. $10 a string and I’ll need 5 strings.

    Long story short: I saved $50 and now I don’t have to take the old ones down.

      LOL, my neighbor is from the depression, a WW2 survivor. Today I caught her stringing up old Christmas lights that I think Edison invented. I told her, I really don’t think you should plug those in. So she tells me she has no intention of plugging them in, that would be dangerous and waste electricity. The lights are so the neighbors THINK she put Christmas lights up.

      By the way, this is why Republicans love Newt. Not only is “take a bath” and “food stamp president” the kind of thing that makes the right smile, it makes obots liberals like Mika lose. their. shit.

    • “Standing literally on his high horse.” LOL. She might want to look up the word literally.

    I’d choose the trigger as well. Blackhearted bastard.

    Here’s the genius who dissed Michele Bachmann on Fallon:

    For your non-Debate Watching pleasure, you can read-a-long with Vodkapundit, his observations are sooooo much better than the real thing 😀


    Requires frequent refreshing page.

    So who wins DWTS tonight?

  6. DeniseVB says:

    If the Iraq vet is still in it, probably him.

    Rob Kardashian seems to be the Bristol Palin of this season. Cries of cheating the votes because his sisters tweet their millions of fans to vote for him. Sigh.

    Vodkapundit’s debate wrap-up. Pretty spot on from what I saw….

    Was there substance? Sure. Plenty of trivialities, too. But this debate seemed to do little more than reinforce the fact that President Obama is the CINC, and none of these people on stage are even close to being CINC. As a blogger who got his start during the War on Terror, I can tell you: There isn’t much unimpressive than an armchair general.

    That’s why these candidates have got to agree to fewer debates, and to zero single-issue debates. Presidents don’t deal with one issue at a time. Neither should serious candidates. All these single-issue debates accomplish is to reduce the stature of anyone running against an incumbent President.

    I understand the appeal when Heritage and AEI make the offer and CNN supplies the bandwidth. But I get the feeling that CNN understands the real stakes (just described), while Heritage/AEI/Candidates don’t seem to understand anything beyond the surface level of, “Oh, a foreign policy debate! People LOVE us on foreign policy!”

    No, in serious times, serious people love serious people. And there wasn’t much seriousness to be seen tonight.

    We need lots of debates. But they ought to be restricted to candidates which something of a chance, and hosted by people (and broadcasted by people) with a seriousness worthy of our times.

    Did you see any of that tonight? Because I didn’t.

      I would prefer to see Buddy Roemer and Gary Johnson included. There are GOP candidates who are not lunatics but they can’t seem to get on the stage.

    A toast to myiq 😀

    Most awesomest wedding photo ever

    I’ve been to weddings that involved exchanges of gunfire, but we didn’t take pictures.

  10. Newt was the warm hearted guy while speaker who said all kids of poor families should be taken from their homes and put into orphanages. And another time he said we really need to bring back the poor house, to imprison people that get too poor. Such a lovely soul.

    Newt has always been insufferable. Why in hell don’t they just let Romney be ‘it’??

    • Elliott says:

      I think perhaps to go after Obama. He can dirty his hands because they are already dirty and Romney can stay semi-clean. Various actors can call Newtie a bigot, crazy, mean, etc and he will respond “So?” because he and his ilk view it as a compliment. It also drives up Obama’s negatives and insulates Romney when he more mildly goes after the One. Assaults on Obama will be so common during the general election that he will be considered fair game this time around. Stuff that would have caused screaming fits by Obama supporters in 2008 will be everyday occurrences in 2012. They won’t be able to keep up the outrage because it will be relentless to drive Obama’s negatives even higher.

      • Mary says:

        Well said.

        Lotta people who don’t even like Newt (ie, wouldn’t vote for him) LIKE the freedom he has to hit Obama the way no one else would dare to do.
