Clown Car Debate

So tonight is the GOP clown car debate, Parts 1 and 2.  Yes, there is a kids table for those who didn't make the cut.

There are 17 "major" candidates running for the spot.  Think of that.  17.  And the one polling highest?  Trump.


It's not that the number is so big.  It's that they are carbon copies of each other.  And as the rhetoric becomes more radical, they try to out-stupid each other.

I mean seriously:  they ALL have the same major positions.  And most of those positions are out of touch with the majority of the American people.

And what will we learn tonight?  Well, Fox News will be throwing them softballs for sure.  They're not in the business of making republicans intentionally look bad (especially when the GOP does that all by itself.)  Maybe we'll learn someone's favorite tree.  Or what they like least about the president (aside from his skin color.)

I didn't make this up- an actual GOP meme

Some people will make this debate into a bingo game, or a drinking game, and that's fine.  But this is a supposedly MAJOR political party holding a supposedly important debate about the future of our country... and frankly I don't know how anyone can take this event (or especially the candidates) seriously.

It scares me that the GOP has reached this low.  Eisenhower and Lincoln are on a rotisserie in their graves...

  1. Interesting that, while they mentioned Hilary ( a lot) - NOBODY mentioned Bernie...
