  • “SCUM!!!!” Never not funny. Sad you cut out the part where he actually says it in the clip, though.

  • josephebacon

    Gosh the only place in LA I know named after Mao is Mao’s Kitchen on Melrose…

  • Welcome back Bob!!!!

    I’m excited to see the new site design. I use WordPress for a number of different sites and I despise it with the heat of 10,000 suns. Need some tech help? I’m available for technical assistance and I bill hourly. 🙂

    Wooohooo, cheer for pussy!!!! Oh wait, that’s not what he meant.

    Enjoyed the so sad voice, sounded like Homer Simpson.

    Speaking of political satire, did you see the first episode for Samantha Bee’s new show on TBS? It was fantastic, highly recommend it.

    Although Albright was harsh I agree in general principle, meaning that there IS a special hell reserved for women who are constantly trying to undermine other women who are seeking to become their own person. It may sound like a cliche but it’s true, the worst critics of women are other women. OTOH, in the context of voting for Hillary–it was a patently stupid thing for Albright to say. If I hear one more person tell me I’m only supporting Hillary because she and I both have a vagina, my head is going to explode.

    Facts, schmacts…apparently according to some Bernie supporters I’m a dried up old woman who is blindly following another dried up old woman. Who wants to talk about polls or primaries or superdelegates?! Not them! Why do they want to focus on my vagina so much–too much like a Republican.

    At one point Jones sounded like a Wookie with a head cold

  • Badgerite

    Wow. He seems nice. That Alex Jones guy.

  • muselet

    Bob, good on ya. Glad you’re going to be back at Banter.

    It’s astonishing to me that the Rs are fighting over who’s more pro-torture (although, with the exception of Donald Trump, they vehemently deny that what they’re proposing is actually torture), because torture is manly or some such. I never thought I’d live to see candidates for President advocating systematic violations of the Geneva Conventions.

    Ted Cruz’s response to Trump and his supporter was … odd. The first sentence was a bit verbose, but the message was okay: Trump’s lashing out because he lost, but I won’t respond. The other 15,000 words sounded like Cruz (a) playing up the idea that he’s a victim (!), and (b) attempting to subtly get under Trump’s skin; however, Cruz isn’t a victim and not only does Trump not do subtle, he doesn’t recognize subtle. Odd, as I said.

    Madeleine Albright’s statement was, yes, kind of tone-deaf. However, TIME interviewed Albright and her explanation makes sense to me, in part because I’d heard her say that before.

    As for Gloria Steinem, she said a stupid thing—Bill Maher’s show seems to bring out the dumb in people, for some reason—and apologized and expanded on her thoughts. I’ve been hearing Steinem for decades, and what she said away from the TV cameras made sense and was more in keeping with what she’s said in the past.

    Millennial women—of which I am neither—can make up their own minds about Albright and Steinem.

    I’m not necessarily convinced the Bernie-bots or whatever are any more real than the PUMAs of 2008: they exist, but they’re loud rather than numerous. Yes, I could be wrong and Sanders supporters could stay away from the polls in droves come November (if so, I’ll put my hand up). The next nine months could be interesting.

    Ben Carson has said he didn’t hear his name called, and there was enough whooping and hollering and applause in the venue that I don’t doubt him. ABC News screwed up by not ensuring the candidates would go out on stage on time and in order.

    Donald Trump saw what was happening, and was taking a shot at Carson and making David Muir say his name repeatedly. Carson seemed genuinely confused, Trump was being a dick.

    Chez, Patton Oswalt’s closing statements—not just the Trump one—were hilarious, and naturally the folks at Dead Andy have their knickers in a twist over it (hell, no, I’m not providing a link).

    Kevin Drum links to a McKay Coppins story which explains that Marco Rubio, according to people who know him, doesn’t do well under pressure. Coppins calls it “Rubio’s natural nervousness.” It sounds like Rubio got nervous during the debate and got him stuck in that godawful talking-point loop. It’s a very human thing, and it’s exactly what no one should want in a President.

    I’d love to lock Chris Christie and Donald Trump in a room together and let them slag each other off. Of course, it would be tempting to lose the key …

    Bob, the Rs—and Alex Jones—would tar any D with the label of socialist (because Democrat = socialist = communist = fascist = genocidal madman/madwoman in their minds). Sure, they’d go after Bernie Sanders with glee, but being able to take such shots at Hillary Clinton (only because she’s a Clinton) would make Alex Jones grow a third leg.

    What the WTFin fck was Alex Jones babbling about? And does anyone have a throat lozenge? (Every time I hear that loon, it makes my throat hurt.)


  • isthisdavid

    Wow, that’s probably the most unhinged I’ve ever heard Alex Jones.

    • Badgerite

      I think, in reality, he may actually be ‘hingeless’. He is a special snowflake. No hinges at all.

  • HilaryB

    I missed the beginning of the last GOP debate, so I hadn’t seen the entrance. Now, Stephen Colbert’s show on Monday night makes much more sense to me.

  • ProudLiberalAlways

    Great show, as always! But Chez is exactly right, do you think that the next time you have a Jones clip (especially a long one) you could moderate the sound a little? Please? Thanx in advance. Love you both!

  • Victor the Crab

    YAAAY, Bob’s coming back to the Banter! Can’t wait!
