  1. BYU vs Mizzou stuck at 3 to 3 as halftime approaches. This game is fierce.

    I had those same pants when I was in college. The white stripes glowed under the black lights a lot kids had in their dorm rooms. The way the stripes came together at the crotch was unfortunate.

  3. “Every candidate who is attacked will get 30 seconds to respond.” Who the fuck decides?

  4. Martin O’Malley: Jihadis are the NEW-New threat.

    Brought to you by 2001.

  5. lyn says:

    O’Malley is making the most sense.

  6. mcnorman says:

    I want to know when they are going to ask HRC if Paris was stirred up by a video.

  7. 1539days says:

    Watching this debate in HD is kind of scary. Bernie looks partially melted, but he also has the least make up on.

  8. 1539days says:

    I like this debate so far because they’re making all of them just argue with each other over lousy Obama foreign policy.

  9. mcnorman says:

    Why can’t HRC say radical Islam?

  10. Wow, she wants War Authorization, Part D’eux. Does she not learn?

  11. votermom says:

    Bless you guys for watching!
    I can’t take anymore of them.

    PS I scheduled a generic Sunday thread for tomorrow morning so feel free to sleep in, Klown, Denise, Lola.

  12. leslie says:

    I’m watching “Iron Man 3” really fun movie. Really violent and funny as well. And there’s nothing real life about it. Oopsie the commercial’s over.

  13. That was a good line from Bernie. “I’m not as socialist as Eisenhower.”

  14. Somebody says:

    I watched a couple of minutes just now quite by accident. The football game I watched earlier was on CBS. I went out shopping, but left the TV on to keep my dog company……she’s probably permanently traumatized now. When I came back home I had to hunt for the remote….OMG, make it stop……argh!

    The part I heard they asked Bernie how high he wanted taxes and he said not as high as Eisenhower which was 90%. Then O’Malley piped in that taxes were 70 or 78% when Reagan was in office…….wasn’t that coy. Then they asked Hillary about Obamacare and costs rising was it expected, she started off with saying how great the ACA has been for America. Mercifully I found the remote, click……more football, woot!

    Just the little bit I listened to, WTF somewhere between 70% and 90% top tax rate….the ACA is wonderful, holy cow.

      That tax rate stuff is pretty hilarious. When the top rate was 90% we also had a balanced budget (the real kind, without using social security). We’d have to cut the budget if the rate was 90% with all the spending we’re doing.

      If you read about something called Hauser’s Law, marginal top rate is virtually meaningless as far as total revenue.


      • While I always appreciate your comments, days, Hauser’s law can basically be summed up thusly: “On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero.” #IJS

        • 1539days says:

          I would sum it up as ” the money we get from rich people in income tax doesn’t amount to shit, whether they are charged 90% or 28%. They just find ways to hide it.”

  15. 1539days says:

    It’ so funny how the Hillbots are taking this debate. “Oh, everyone is picking on Hillary.” “They hate women.” They just want everyone to hand Clinton the election.

    I remember the bitching about Obama getting fawning treatment during 2008. Turns out, it wasn’t the fawning that was the problem, it was that Hillary wasn’t the recipient.

  16. mcnorman says:

    Ack, I surfed and hit the debate again. Picking on HRC? That’s a pantload.

  17. DandyTIger says:

    I watched a 1/2 hour of the debate, and fell off the couch laughing when they asked Bernie to answer why he thought Goldman-Sachs might have influence over Hillary. Seriously, they have to ask. Does dunking your head in the toilet erase recent nightmarish memories? Asking for friend.

  18. Off topic: Trying Jamberry tonight. Liking it so far.

  19. mcnorman says:

    Lola, thank you very much for hosting.

  20. Shorter Axelrod: Dems are more boring than an Andy Griffin episode, and twice as white.

  21. 1539days says:

    This is why CBS hasn’t gotten a GOP debate yet.

  22. OMG, if I have to endure the debate and watch Mizzou win, I’m gonna vomit. #FuckMizzou

    Repost frok downstairs
    Well I watched it.
    My take
    O’Malley and Rubio are the same person.(diction, ears, and I think I’ma hunk)
    Hillary do not recognize from 2008.
    Sander’s I refuse to believe actually exists. I firmly believe someone drew him.
    Middle class, middle class, free college
    Over all I moved a bit closer to Camp Trump. Down to Donald and Cruz.

  24. swanspirit says:

    Also partly reposted from downstairs, The democratic side show, a giant tsunami of stupid. I could not watch the entire thing.
    Bernie scares me, I can no longer stand the sound of Hillary’s voice, and O’Malley makes me think of those little yappy dogs that nip at the heels of big dogs.
    The most entertaining moment was Hillary giving Bernie dirty looks for “impugning her integrity”

  25. lyn says:

    Holy Holly!
    “Holly Holm of Albuquerque has won her UFC bantamweight title against prohibitive Ronda Rousey with a second-round knockout at UFC 193 Sunday in Melbourne, Australia.”

    Palin was in NYC today, tweeting from St. Patrick’s Cathedral (she’ll be on Good Morning America on Tuesday, promoting her new book):

  27. DeniseVB says:

    Sorry I missed the debate watch party, I fell asleep ! Looks like I didn’t miss much, but when the lefty media can’t make sense of Hillary, probably wasn’t a good night for her (though I’m sure nothing’s changed in the Dem race).

  28. leslie says:

    Thanks for watching the debate (and the #MIZZOU game) for me. I loved “Iron Man 3”. It was just the right amount of funny and brawn for the end of this week of misery.
    I still don’t know who won the game – I bet I could find out if I really cared. 😉

  29. DeniseVB says:

    Oh Ethel hated those pants too 😉
