    Whichever moderator it was Ted Cruz went off on about the liberal media not asking substantive questions would have been perfectly justified in screaming back at him I JUST DID YOU DUMB BASTARD!!!

    I’m gonna restate my suggestion that this be this should be the theme song for the remaining GOP debates.

    Great shows guys. As always.

    Bob, I have an idea for the next Halloween themed show you and Chez do when there is a Rethug. “debate” going on. For the music, try Alice Cooper’s ‘Welcome to my Nightmare’. They’re making up most of mine, lately. I can’t be alone in this.

    Not a very good movie, Soylent Green, but holy cats, what a cast.

    Every time I hear Rick Santelli’s rant, I realize how much better the world would be if he had become an accountant or a sports announcer. Ditto the self-absorbed twits who applauded him.

    Ezra Klein is—surprise, surprise—correct. There isn’t a single R candidate for President who has any intellectual or policy chops at all. However (you knew there was one of those), those aren’t things that appeal to the Republican base. It’s why the R field consists of what I’ve described as “a blowhard and a gallimaufry of lunatics.”

    Nobody expects someone to lie so blatantly. Sure, the moderators should have expected the candidates to stretch the truth, but to outright lie like Donald Trump? Besides, since the moderators of this debate didn’t come from Righty-approved media, nothing they could have said would have had the slightest effect; it would have been like trying to empty an ocean with a teaspoon.

    Bob, you know as well as I do, everything other than Fox News can be easily dismissed as theliberalmedia, and when FNC strays too far into the realm of reality, The Base begins to wonder if Fox isn’t part of theliberalmedia, too.

    The question to Ted Cruz wasn’t phrased smartly. In fact, it was the stupidest thing anyone could have asked. “Why do you oppose that deal?” would have been a better question than “Does your opposition to it show that you’re not the kind of problem-solver American voters want?” The question asked was inviting Ted Cruz to rant and rave about how terrible and biased the moderators were. (And those were media professionals sitting behind the microphones. Good grief.)

    Bob, The Base is looking for someone who grrrr! hates government as much as they do, so they’re naturally going to gravitate toward political neophytes. It’s not a coincidence that the frontrunners on the R side are people who’ve never held elective office, who have avoided that contagion, and it’s been that way since 1980.

    Guys, this day has been coming for a long time. Substance is something the Rs fled from years ago. Look at the Rs in Congress and tell me they have the vaguest idea how government works, and I’m not just talking about the Class of 2010. Undercard battler Lindsey “Bomb ‘Em All!” Graham is clueless, and he’s been in the Senate since 2003 and was in the House from 1995 to 2003 (although in his case, he might be lowering his own IQ by bashing bricks against his head to stay true to his constituents’ desires).

    “You know what, I’m going to trade the country’s cows for some magic beans.” Makes more sense than what Ben Carson’s actual tax plan.

    Bob, I didn’t know Rand Paul sounded so much like Edward G Robinson (I kept waiting for you/him to call someone a dirty rat).

    “Gowdywood.” Sounds like a fine program. I just hope the doors lock from the outside.

    The simple solution to candidate crosstalk—albeit one which would enrage them and The Base—is to cut their mics when their time is up.

    Give him credit: Ben Carson is a talented liar. Confronted with an uncomfortable fact—Mannatech (really?)—he simply denies the fact in a way guaranteed to rile up the rubes and moves on. I cringe to think what the hell he told the parents of kids who were referred to him.

    “I’m being told by the voices in my head we’ve already played the Donald Trump audio.” Time for a vacation, Bob.

    Trump simply doesn’t care whether anyone thinks he’s lying or not because he’s Donald Trump, He has more money than you, so shut up.

    Carly Fiorina is, to employ one of my favorite links, a bullshitter: she genuinely doesn’t care whether what she says is true or not, as long as what she says is of benefit to her.

    Carly Fiorina was a secretary. Briefly. Between the time she dropped out of law school and entered business school. On her father’s dime. As I say, she’s bullshitting.

    CNN has clearly decided the rest of us are right and has stopped even pretending to be an actual news outlet any more.

    (Bob, you missed your “fuck” at 51:46.)

    It did not seem to me that any of the GOP candidates needed any prompting to attack each other.
    Donald Trump has been doing almost nothing but attacking and insulting. That, of course, is what makes him “authentic”. At least to the TP crowd.

    Okay. Paper Willy totally sold me on Mannatech.

    Loved the B.A.D. commercial. Very well done!

    I think it is worth mentioning that the boos that are being touted as damning criticism of the moderators are being supplied by only one thousand probably vetted people in a twelve thousand person venue..they wouldn’t allow a likely democratic audience into the place, so, no photos of the empty eleven thousand seats. I believe after the university begged, they got 150 tickets up from 100… These candidates, and I use the term loosely, are incapable of existing outside of a Fox insulated bubble, as admitted to today I think by Ted Cruz saying they should all be moderated by Hannity and two other bobble heads, I’ve blanked it out of my brain for safety reasons. Critical thinking skills have swirled down the proverbial toilet. Come to think of it, they couldn’t handle questions on Fox either, so where does that leave them?
