OPEN THREAD: GOP Top Ten Debate

Watch along with us and weigh in during the main GOP debate at 9PM eastern. The event will be live-streamed on Fox News where you’ll need your cable system login to watch.

  • Mike Solo

    As its nearly midnight here in Scotland, and I’ve drunken too much wine and eaten too much Spanish Tapas in Broughty Ferry, I think I’ll just wait for Joe’s recap telling me all I need to know and laugh about tonights comedy show.

    • TommyTune

      Good decision.

    • Yank

      Dying to watch it here in Edinburgh!

      • another_steve

        Please keep in mind, as you watch, that they are the American Freak Show of the 2000’s.

        On behalf of all Americans reading and commenting here, I apologize to you and the rest of the world for what you are about to behold.

        • Yank

          I know. I’m an American in Scotland. And I agree with you.

          • D. J.

            Do you have room for more Americans?

          • Yank

            There’s plenty of room, and Scotland, with it’s NHS and worker-centered employment law, is a far fairer society. Come on over!

          • Steve Teeter

            Lordy. Could you actually SEE the debate in Scotland?

          • Mike Solo

            It got a 30 sec mention on BBC Alba I think… they just don’t really pay attention to it here, and won’t till the final nominee is announced

    • Octavio

      Scottish tapas? Smoked welks on points of toasted oat bread? What?

      • haggis slices over brothed barley

        • 2karmanot

          urrrp

  • Dazzer

    What are the rules of the drinking game going to be?

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    I look for Christie to make waves.

    • DavidAZ

      With Christie it’ll be more like a tsunami.

    • BearEyes

      Canon ball!

    • Outlaw Jersey Whales splash, they don’t make waves.

  • another_steve

    Hubby and I have one of those hot air popcorn makers from the 1980s that my now-dead mother gave us for one of our anniversaries, and we’re going to use it to pop some yummy to watch with the debate.

    I’ve also been pacing my alcohol consumption today so that I can be sufficiently soused come debate time.

    • bkmn

      If you have a Trader Joe’s nearby I highly recommend the dill pickle popcorn. Yummy!

      • another_steve

        Thanks for the recommendation.

        I’ve noticed in the snack aisle of my local supermarket that they’re coming out with all manner of bizarre and exotic potato chip flavors.

        “Peruvian Chicken and Anchovies with Sea Salt”

        That sort of thing.

        • vorpal

          Ummm, yum? I would totally hit that.

        • BearEyes

          I love chicken flavoured potato chips.

          • Reality.Bites

            http://www.chipsandcrisps.com/uploads/1/4/8/3/14831570/852233_orig.gif

            So in other words, chips that taste like potatoes. What would the difference be between loaded potato chips and loaded potato skin potato chips?

          • Cuberly

            Hey, you’re lucky, you Canadians have Thunder Crunch Garlic Parmesan chips up there. They’re the crack of the potato chip world.

          • another_steve

            You want addictive crunchy snack/junk food?

            Nabisco Sundried Tomato & Basil Wheat Thins Crackers.

            Please do not question this recommendation.

            Go out, buy a box, and report back to me.

          • Cuberly

            Ha! I’ve had them, yep. Pretty good. In fact I’m nibbling on a few cracked pepper and olive oil Triscuits right now.

            Nabisco has been throwing a lot of interesting combinations out there as of late. And I never eat that stuff. But some are quite good. The dill Triscuits are awesome.

          • another_steve

            Ohmigod… the cracked pepper and olive oil Triscuits.

            Throw a piece of swiss cheese on them and it’s better than an orgasm.

          • bambinoitaliano

            I’m gaining 5lbs reading you guys going back and forth. Don’t put me on diet from this site.

          • B Snow

            Yes! I don’t know why it took so long for snack companies to add cracked black pepper as a flavoring, but I’m glad I’ve lived long enough to enjoy this golden age.

    • KCMC

      Health officials warn that you could die playing GOP debate drinking games: β€˜It’s just a formula for disaster’

    • vorpal

      Life is too short for air popped!

      Pop in a pot with a bit of oil, and sprinkle generously with salt and tabasco, and if you can spare the calories, butter!

      Air popped is like a big bowl of depression.

      • BearEyes

        I like garlic butter on mine followed by a bit of parmigiana.

        • vorpal

          I haven’t tried that, but I find it impossible to believe that it wouldn’t be utterly delicious.

          • Reality.Bites

            Anyone tried “Chicago Mix” of cheddar coated and caramel coated?

            I don’t get it. In my opinion two flavours that are just fine on their own that do NOT gain be being together.

            Chocolate coated caramel popcorn is great, although I’ve only seen it with milk chocolate and I hugely prefer dark chocolate.

        • Cuberly

          Yep, Parmesan on popcorn is amazing. But have to put the Parmesan on when it’s nice and hot.

          • Roger

            Add some freshly fried small bacon cubes and I assure you are in for a treat! πŸ˜›

      • another_steve

        Hear ya, vorpal.

        But my now-dead mother gave us the popper, and we’re doin’ it for her.

  • bkmn

    Its going to be tough to do better than Rick Perry calling Reagan “Ronald Raven” and forgetting how long he was governor or Piyush threatening to have the IRS crack down on Planned Parenthood, but I’m sure they will try.

  • Michael Smith

    I don’t have time to watch the debate, so I think I’ll simulate the experience by hitting myself on the head with a ball-peen hammer multiple times.

    • Reality.Bites

      ^ Tee-hee. He said “ball” and “peen.”

    More soon…

    • 2karmanot

      That’s because she’s wearing the red carpet.

  • Soren456

    This is the biggest hype job since “Who Shot JR,” and for about the same reason and with the same intellectual content.

    I don’t want my tune-in to be counted for their ratings, so I’ll read recaps.

    • Reality.Bites

      If you’re not a Nielsen family nothing you watch counts.

      • Soren456

        Not so. I have cable and my viewing is noted.

        True fact.

        • Reality.Bites

          Not in the national ratings.

          • Octavio

            I received an invitation to write down everything I watched and the time I watched it by Nielsens. They even included a $10 bill. I used the 10 bucks to buy beer and threw the letter away.

          • Paula

            You’re such a rebel!

          • you’re both right. the people who make decisions at Faux etc get to see the real statistics and ratings. industry publications note “for the record” other, more creative forms of measuring viewers, and tell the advertisers those numbers. i believe “sweeps week” is still a thing.

    • noni

    Poor Cleveland. And you thought having a river that actually burned for 10 years was the worst thing that could happen to you…!

    If I was a citizen, I think I’d advocate leveling the city and sowing the ground with salt after being polluted by the likes of these losers.

    Ick. I say it again. Ick.

    • Duh-David

      The river didn’t burn for 10 years, and prior to the EPA every industrial city in the US had a river that burned — Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, etc.. Cleveland only gained notoriety because a politician decided to make the city a national joke to get elected; he’s now forgotten, yet he helped usher in the EPA.

  • MarkOH

    Why the HECK is this not on ANY other news agency than Faux????

    • Reality.Bites

      Because they’re sponsoring it. Same reason American Idol isn’t on any other outlet. Except with less talent.

    • houstonray

      They get the first one, then there’s one on CNN later and I think some other networks and maybe back at FauX

      • clay

        3 on Fox, 3 on CNN, 1 on a “conservative” network (’cause Fox is all like liberal-stream).

        The Dems are doing none on Fox.

    • BearEyes

      mouthpiece for the party.

    • MattM

      To make sure you know who’s in charge.

  • Sam_Handwich

    I’m looking forward to the portion of the pageant when they’re all blindfolded and beating a vagΓ¬na piΓ±ata with a splintery stick

    • bkmn

      While screaming “Benghazi!!!!”

  • houstonray

    I was excited about this debate and hoping for a train wreck, but watching some of the clips from the kids table debate is making me twitch…not sure I’m up for it. But I’ll give it a shot.

    • TampaDink

      Has she disclosed that she is breaking out? Hives? Allergic reaction? Nerves? What’s the REAL story behind Carly’s break out?

    • Octavio

      Ha, ha! You said “shot” — cheers!

  • Giant Monster Gamera

    I’m ready.

      We are just watching for the Trump spectacle. I have my wine and din din ready for the show. Give us fireworks!

      • fuzzybits

        I’ve been going back and forth and I just have four words,Trump is a pig.

        • Todd20036

          I’ve met lots of pigs. I have friends who are pigs. I am a pig. Mr. Trump is no pig. And will never be one

    • another_steve

      David — If nothing else, getting to our point in life instills us with a certain perverse sense of humor.

      The way to watch this freak show is totally soused and surrounded by junk food.

      We’ve earned it.

      • GayOldLady

        Oh yeah, 3 Michelob’s and a bag of crunchy Cheetos can make anything seem worthwhile.

        • Michael Abbett

          I find a nice glass of Moscato with a good, sharp cheese can make right-wing batshittery quite entertaining.

      • BudClark

        I decided napping was a better use of my time.

    • Christopher

      LOL

      I usually say “Life’s too long to be sober!”

    • Keep It Up!

      This fucking debate is entertaining! Wow!!!! After 30 minutes.

    • Keep It Up!

      This debates makes my cojones twitch. Hehehe.

      • BudClark

        If I had watched, I suspect it would have made MINE draw up inside my inguinal ring.

    • GayOldLady

      I’m older than you David and I watched it. Of course I had to crack open a couple of beers to get me through both of them, but never let age keep you from watching the GOP make fools of themselves.

      6. Fiorina
      5. Kaisch
      4. Huckabee
      3.Christie
      2. Rubio
      1. Cruz

    • FuBear

      Does it make me a coward that I am just so over all this that I look fondly back home and to move? I am from Scotland and have status there and in Canada. But I get so tired watching these idiots and the idiots that idolize them.

      Where are the moderates on that side of the party?

      I keep hearing from reasonable people that I talk with that the talking bobble heads like these are outliers catering to a small segment of the party.

      But then they get elected…

      I am afraid that that particular cognitive dissonance is not settling in.

      • David Walker

        If you’re a coward, we both are. Unlike many of the people here, I cannot waste time watching and laughing at the republican presidential wannabes. Whether it’s the “head in the sand” syndrome or knowing I won’t be voting for any of them next year, I trust a couple of sites to tell me what I missed. JMG is one such site.

        As for the moderates, it’s my theory they are like real Christians…they exist but are afraid that if they say anything, they’ll be harassed by the baggers. The US goes through paroxysms from time to time. The nuts were close to taking over during the ’50s, what with McCarthy, communists, and racial equality. I think we were a hair’s breadth away from civil war from 1967 to 1972. I think we’re on the brink again.

  • Rockola404

    I really, really, wanted the dominionists like Cruz & Huckabee confined to the kid’s table jr. debate stage.

      it was good enough with frothy and perry

  • Paula

    OHHH, I hope Trump’s hair and Paul’s hair get into a death match.

    • BearEyes

      I miss the old Celebrity Deathmatch claymation.

      • Paula

        Those were funny. Don’t forget Mr. Bill NOOOOOOOOOO!

    • Laugh, Molly, Laugh

      Perhaps the only area where Rick Perry (dubbed Gov. Goodhair by the late Molly Ivins) would have had something of an advantage.

      • clay

        I think Scott Walker’s hairline has secretly receded under his bangs all the way back to his ass.

    • ZhyKitty

      They could just peel them off, toss them to the floor and then everyone gather around to watch them fight it out, like on battle-bots.
      That would be hilarious.

      • Paula

        I can so picture that in my mind.

        • ZhyKitty

          Me as well.

    • noni

      Reminds me of another female republican Jeanine Pirro who ran against hillary in NY. She lost page 10 of her speech and paused for 32 seconds looking for it. This is an edited video of it. She is of course now a Fox News Hostess.

      Anyone? Anyone have my page ten? paging page ten.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgevN-KxAGs

      • Nexus1

        OMG I remember that. It was almost as bad as Rick Perry’s gaff about the 3 government agencies he wanted to eliminate. Between her and Rick Lazio trying to bum rush Hillary on the debate stage it all just fell into place for Clinton to win that Senate seat easily both times. NY Republicans have sucked in statewide elections for years now. lol If only we could have a few less in the state legislature. The early hype in 2000 was for a Clinton vs Giuliani race, but that fell apart for Rudy with all of his scandals and mistresses. We thought we might finally get that matchup in 2008, but Rudy once again fell apart. His 3rd wife Judy has been a detriment to his political career, but I do give that woman a ton of credit for finally making Rudy get right of that godawful comb over.

      • B Snow

        Points! for the term “Fox News Hostess”.

        • “hostess” yeah. we had those at my college. they were usually cheerleaders who were there to ‘welcome’ football recruits. in a special way.

    • Christopher

      “…not stumble before HE even gets in the ring.”

      Anyone else catch this?

    • ultragreen

      Probably an operative from the RNC left behind a fake note that supposedly was left behind by one of the debaters so that HRC would look bad. They like to play dirty deceptive tricks like that.

    Ailes is doing a hit job for Murdoch. But Trump supporters are master trolls – it ain’t gonna be pretty.

  • houstonray

    My god if I had to listen to Dr. Carson for an hour I’d doze off.

  • ChrisSF

    Hoo boy, great popcorn watching from the very start. Trump won’t promise to support the eventual nominee and won’t promise not to run as an independent. Equal parts boos and cheers from the crowd. Infighting is funny.

  • Gustav2

    Marco slow down and take a drink of water

  • Rubio *almost* made a good point. If it’s a resume competition, though, it’ll be Bernie Sanders who wins because HE has been in office longest.

    Also, DRINK!

    • Cuberly

      Personally he’s drowned in debt, and he bought a 80K boat. He’s a mess. Fiscal responsibility?

      • Yeah, that student debt? Government service taking that out for him. FUCK him.

      • Sk3ptic

        Yeah, a real poster boy…

      • Piet

        I understand Walker’s drowning in credit card debt, as well. Fiscal responsibility, as you say.

        • Cuberly

          Yep, they’re living the dream.

  • houstonray

    And Hillary didn’t live paycheck to paycheck growing up? Only Marco?

    • Gustav2

      Yes, didn’t know that?

  • David Milley

    “Veto Corleone?!”

  • Sk3ptic

    Jeb’s proud of his brother. Fail.

  • Cuberly
  • KCMC

    It’s painful and awkward to run hard

  • medaka

    Bush: I’ve got a record in Florida! Yeah, a criminal record….

  • houstonray

    WOW!

    • KCMC

      not Rosie?!!!

  • Bj Lincoln

    Only Rosie!

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    The audience cheers calling Rosie O’Donnell an animal.

    • Cuberly

      Yeesh, that was messed up.

      • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

        Republican debate audiences are always such undignified, rotten human beings.

  • halfwaythere

    Donald Trump continues to be a pig..

  • Megyn Kelly vs. Donald Trump turned into Megyn Kelly vs. the audience. I want whatever drugs she’s on to put up with Fox Noise.

  • Bj Lincoln

    Political Correctness is a bad thing to the GOP

  • delk

    I had to look up what channel Fox is on.

    • Jim E.

      Me too!

  • David Milley

    He just threatened the moderator!

    • Cuberly

      Yep, she spoke against the Donald.

  • houstonray

    Holy crap! This is better than I ever could have imagined!

    • Cuberly

      It’s been bizarre, in my opinion. Is this a debate or a beauty pageant.

      • David Milley

        or a knife fight?

        • Cuberly

          Ha!

  • Cuberly

    I love how the catch-all “politically correct” is the emergency exit for being a rude coarse ass.

    • David Milley

      … in in that hall, it meets with a roar of approval (shudder)

      • KCMC

        Tea tea tea

    • Gianpiero

      Yes, and unfortunately, I fear we’re going to see Trump’s bad behavior incite wave of this in workplaces and on college campuses in the coming months.

      • VoilΓ‘

        Simple response: Punch them in the face.

      • Cuberly

        Nah, frat boy behavior is not new, nor is it ever appropriate.

  • FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK YOU TED CRUZ

  • houstonray

    And here is my state’s biggest embarrassment….

  • medaka

    Smarmy in the house

  • Sk3ptic

    Here’s the king of smarm: Ted Cruz.

  • houstonray

    “There’s a reason we are 18 trillion in debt?” Um yeah, it’s called 8 years of BUSH.

    • To be fair it’s Reagan and both Bushes, not just Shrub.

      • Doug105

        ,.

        • Comparing percentages seems rather odd. Percentages of what? GDP? Of one year’s debt over another’s?

          • Brian in Valdosta

            My thought precisely. They need to set out their reference points.

    • Doug105

      ..

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    What is that hair?

  • Sk3ptic

    I’m pretty shocked by the intensity of the questions.

  • Cuberly

    Ted Cruz will always tell the truth. Except when he can milk a half truth or lie via omission for air time.

  • Cuberly
  • bryan

    It’s like they’ve all gone to Trump’s hairdresser

  • medaka

    Walker ready to self-abort….

  • Okay, even Hillary Clinton as the drinking game is too much.

    • Sk3ptic

      Yep, already buzzed.

  • Sk3ptic

    Unborn children need protection. Yeah, like you’re interested Walker.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      Born children, not so much, he added inaudibly.

  • Bj Lincoln

    Like he is going to take care of all these unwanted kids.

  • Cuberly

    Wow, thought the PP mention would have gotten more of an audience response. Surprising!

    • Gustav2

      PP has more support than the NRA, it is in the mid 40’s

  • Gustav2

    Defund PP DRINK!

  • houstonray

    I’m sensing the crazy from the Huckster….

  • Sk3ptic

    Did Huckabee just invoke science? Really, asshole? You know nothing about science.

  • David Milley

    It’s official. Huckabee _is_ the bogeyman!

  • medaka

    Equal rights for blastocysts!

    • KCMC

      parts of a Buick

      • BudClark

        That was LOW …

    • Sk3ptic

      Yes! Because of DNA and science!

    • David Milley

      That was sheer crazy!

    • halfwaythere

      Well, there went my plan to not scream at the TV!

      • David Milley

        Right there with you!

      • Sk3ptic

        Hahahaha! I have a feeling it’s going to happen a lot tonight…

      • BudClark

        I decided not to upset myself. Makes it too hard to breathe.

    • Paula

      Every sperm is sacred, every egg is eggcellent!

      • Steve Teeter

        That means every teenage boy who beats off is a mass murderer. Can’t even have a wet dream!

        • BudClark

          “From all ill dreams defend our sight,

          From fears and terrors of the night;

          Withhold from us our ghostly foe,

          That spot of sin we may not know.”

          They STILL believe that wet dreams are sexual congress with the devil.

          The above hymn is sung at Compline, the last Divine Office before monks go to bed at night.

      • BudClark

        Why don’t they sing a Mass of the Angels every time a man masturbates to climax? Amounts to the same thing. Also hair and nail clippings.

  • Huckabee, I hope you rot in whatever hell would be worst for you. You are no priest. You are a hateful, spiteful, piece of bile. Unborn DNA does NOT HAVE GREATER RIGHTS THAN THE MOTHER.

    • huckabee is worse: he’s a thief from his own people.

  • noni

    are they not asking any questions of trump?

    • They seem to be trying to give everyone a question before going back to previous candidates

    • Cuberly

      They tried to corner him with their first question. My guess as an attempt to fluster him and let him stew.

      • David Milley

        In which case, he should be getting good and mad by now.

        • Cuberly

          It worked, he was flustered for the durration.

          His twitter feed tomorrow is going to be a full on hairpiece melting shit storm of entitled rage.

  • Seriously, is Rand Paul cosplaying as Ronaldo Fryman or something?

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    Some call Tabitha. Tabitha takes on the clown car.

  • medaka

    Isis rides around in a Buick!

  • Sk3ptic

    Bomb Iran! It’s the only way!!

  • JoeMyGod

    Huckabee just dodged the gay marriage portion of the question. Interesting.

    • David Milley

      True — thankfully. But he just threw women as a class right under that ol’ bus. More traction for the anti-abortion cause this year?

      • clay

        Yep, just like Santorum.

    • The format really prevents the moderators from nailing the candidates down on things like that.

  • vorpal

    Not watching here (no access), but why do I get the feeling that there are going to be a LOT of hungover JMGers tomorrow? Ha!

  • bryan

    Paul with that make up and hair looks like Pinocchio

    • Cuberly

      He sounds like a drunk southern sheriff. What is up with that.

      • 2guysnamedjoe

        2 out of 3?

  • Gustav2

    Here comes kasich’s jesus moment

  • Kasich is probably the best of these clowns.

    • Gustav2

      Until you look closely…he is a Teavangelical who lies about his record and the press doesn’t know or report on our flyover state

      • None of them are good at all. He seems to be the least offensive.

  • Sk3ptic

    Kasich wants to put all the Republicans back into asylums. That’s actually a good idea!

    • KCMC

      only those incarcerated

      • Sk3ptic

        Let’s get busy then! /s

  • Ed Burrow

    ok..i can’t watch it, but thanks to TuneIn, i can listen to it on my phone.

  • medaka

    Bush: buy my book. Because I will never be preznit.

  • Cuberly

    Jeb mentions “my book”! DRINK!

  • Sk3ptic

    Ah yes, OBAMA is the wedge issue.

  • Gustav2

    Sanctuary cities are nothing, good lord a talking point

  • OH HERE WE GO

    • Cuberly

      HA! Oooooo, he’s good and scowling too.

  • medaka

    Trump is trying to answer the question before it’s even been asked.

  • Sk3ptic

    Will the cotton candy on top of Trump’s head melt under the studio lights?

    • KCMC

      fiberglass insulation

      • Sk3ptic

        That makes more sense. More stable, but potentially more itchy!

        • David Milley

          Explains his temper, though.

        • KCMC

          why he’s chronically fussy

  • medaka

    Mexico Me Me Me Me ME!

  • Sk3ptic

    Trump thinks he’s the only one who brought up immigration. Really?

    Oy vey! That was awesome KKKrazy-sauce.

  • bryan

    We need a wall around trump’s ego

    • In the Mariana Trench.

    • Cuberly

      Did you hear the coughs and giggles during Trumps rant?

  • Suzy

    Oh damn, they gunning for Trump.

  • halfwaythere

    This is so much more fun than the earlier debate!

  • Cuberly

    WOW, Trumpty Dumpty is pissing it down his leg!

  • David Milley

    Trump sure ain’t afraid to burn down his own house!

    • KCMC

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen

      Dr. Evil had better hair.

  • bryan

    Trump could take a dump on stage ,,, he’d still win. The Republican Party is dead

    • skeptical_inquirer

      That would make it more entertaining.

    • billbear1961

      Bury it, and sow salt in the ground!

  • Mein gott. FOX has lost control. Trump is gonna win this shit.

  • JoeMyGod

    Prediction: Trump hits 35% in this week’s polls.

    • halfwaythere

      sad but true

    • Probably.

    • LonelyLiberal

      No argument because I can’t, I just can’t even. Even.

      He talks like WND commenters. Probably so.

    • Cuberly

      Yep.

    • Happy Dance

      Well, just remember….after you go up, there is only one other direction to go.

    • GayOldLady

      I think Trump will lose ground after this debate. He basically looked like a bratty Billionaire who had no clue how to answer the questions presented to him. But, this is the GOP which means he could hit 50% in this week’s polls. πŸ™‚

  • Kasich didn’t answer either.

    • David Milley

      And just got called for it!

  • RNegron

    I did not think my blood pressure could take it, but my very-non-political husband insisted. I confess myself endlessly entertained. Funny as hell!

  • Circle Thomas

    In Florida, they call me Jeb. In the farm county of Florin, they call me Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.

  • Outlaw Woman

    I think Trump is boobing it up …
    Prediction: Trump deeply falls in the polls.

  • Jim in TO

    I almost wish I could watch this, but Fox News is not on basic cable in Canada (and not in the package I have).

  • houstonray

    OH! So now it’s not MEXICO, it’s the OTHER brown countries, eh Marco?

    • Gustav2

      It is true and takes it away from the mrs Bush

      • noni

        I was hoping Trump would repeat his claim that Bush doesn’t care about immigration because his wife is mexican.

  • houstonray

    Nobody wants to say anything negative about Trump…they are scared…LMAO!

    • billbear1961

      They ARE cowards, terrified of their thuggish base.

    I’m kinda shocked Cruz is coming across as bad as he is. He’s sorta flailing.

          It goes to the wig stand by it’s own volition. Scary. πŸ˜‰

      • billbear1961

          That’s an octopus. Those “ears” make it look like Dumbo.

            And it has a scary name that escapes me!

          • Fyva Prold

            “Stephanie Bush, a postdoctoral researcher at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, said that she is considering the scientific name Opisthotheusis Adorabilis for a species currently only known as the flapjack octopus.”

          • billbear1961

            I could have sworn “vampire” figured in the name, or “devil.”

            And maybe something about its colour.

      They’re whores, desperate to sell themselves and will latch on to and say whatever they think and hope will work.

      There’s nothing in these men but GREED.

      Yes, great call, I was not sure about that either…was he governor then?

      • David Milley

        Nope!

      • Circle Thomas

        No, he wasn’t appointed to office until 2002. He didn’t run for office until after McGreevy.

    • Sk3ptic

  • David Milley

    Yeah, sure, it’s easier to conduct waterboarding if your hands aren’t tied behind your back. Y’know, Ben, sometimes it’s better not to reach for a metaphor.

  • Cuberly

    Uh oh. Trump is going rogue.

  • Sk3ptic

    Oh, OK, or about Iraq. Whatever.

  • Ninja0980

    Christie’s tough guy act wasn’t going to work outside of NJ, something he is learned the hard way.

    • noni

      He’s dumpy

    • David Milley

      So has New Jersey.

  • medaka

    I have a big company!

  • Steven B

  • Ninja0980

    How could someone so smart in one area be so dumb in so many others?

    • noni

      Who?

      • Ninja0980

        Carson.

    • Nexus1

      Quite easily actually. There are some geniuses that are somewhat autistic and cannot function in certain ways. Einstein had a hard time with his shoes and there are plenty of doctors who can’t even maintain a clean and orderly home. Sometimes human intelligence can be over focused in one area and completely inept in another.

  • houstonray

    Ah the mysterious “different system”of health care

    • Gustav2

      hey, Nixon had a secret plan to end Viet Nam

      • Octavio

        He also had a secret love. πŸ™‚

    • noni

      That’s more than the other Republicans have offered.

  • JoeMyGod

  • matt n

    i wonder what obama and michelle are saying watching this…

    • bob

      ” Hey Michelle, I bet we can win a 3rd term “

      • matt n

        it would be fun to be a fly on the wall at bill and hill’s too.

      • Sk3ptic

        This!

  • Octavio

    And then we will have great plans. You’re having a hard time. I’m the only one who said in 2004 Bengahzi!

  • Suzy

    Paul trnya snatch Trump’s weave. THE IRONY.

    • Cuberly

      Hope the stage is grounded. Lots of polyester rugs making lots of static up there.

      • clay

        Please, considering how thread-bare Trump looks, you think that’s a rug?

        • Cuberly

          True, it’s probably one long ass hair.

  • Cuberly

    Paul really comes across like a douchy dweeb. Wow.

  • bryan

    Is Paul’s hair another presidential candidate ?

    • noni

      and it’s going after Trump’s hair thing.

  • Trump is winning the hell out of this thing.

    • Sk3ptic

      He’s definitely giving good reality TV.

  • medaka

    It’s all about MY MONEY.

  • Trainwreck

    Pure shade from Trump. Excellent!

  • I think I just sprained my middle finger flipping him off.

  • medaka

    Duggar the EPA

  • David Milley

    Oh, gawd — Trump just bragged about buying favors.

    • Sk3ptic

      Cronyism is good, people. We just have to deal with it. /s

  • Gustav2

    were is Perry?

    • KCMC

    • medaka

    • Sk3ptic

      He didn’t make the cut.

  • David Milley

    Hucklebee — I’d forgotten he was there …

    • Cuberly

      De ja ew.

    • Sk3ptic

      That’s a good thing.

  • medaka

    Mandates we had to suck up!

    • delk

      I think Huckabee wanted a man date, not a mandate.

  • Gustav2

    Fair tax hurts poor folks

  • Gustav2

    God s fair?

    Local control leads to stupid…se texas

    • medaka

      Texas. Textbooks.

    • Octavio

      Leads to Alabama!

      • Sk3ptic

        Mississippi too!

    • Sk3ptic

      This has been proven correct time and time again.

    • skeptical_inquirer

      Also I notice that they only want local control on certain things. If a city wants to be LGBT friendly and have PP then they’ll poop on local control.

  • JEB!

  • Cuberly

    Common Core is VOLUNTARY!!!!! It is NOT a MANDATE!

  • houstonray

    Did the good doctor (and I use that term loosely) just advocate turning our tax system into a tithe? Like the bible? At the risk of sounding ironic, Jesus Christ….

  • Jim in TO

    Common Core was created by the states, not by the federal govt.

  • Cuberly

    Vouchers: Drink

    Wow, was thinking that was a safe bet to not be mentioned.

  • Shut the fuck up about your goddamn voucher program that sends people to private shitty charter schools and drives teacher salaries into the toilet.

    • Gustav2

      Please ask Kasich how his employee falsified test scores for voicher schools

      • Florida doesn’t do that; they just exempted them from all the FCAT requirements while JEB! was in office.

        • Gustav2

          See it is all good!

  • Gustav2

    That was temporay Bush, check it now

    • David Milley

      I noticed the way he made that claim in past tense …

  • CRUZ THIS IS HOW GOVERNMENT WORKS YOU SHIT

    • oh wait that was Rubio I have had too many drinks

      • Sk3ptic

        LOL–it’s less horrifying that way…

  • bryan

    Bush is just so dull

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    Into The Weeds.

  • Octavio

    Just be sure your standards are high, i.e. don’t vote Republican

    • Cuberly

      State standards and yet have a voucher system purposely set up to avoid any set standards so christianists can indoctrinate.

      That was messed up double-speak right there.

  • bob

    New drinking game, take a shot every time you hear “Hillary ” !

    • BillTheCat45

      Alcohol poisoning.

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen

      Oh honey, even I don’t drink that much.

  • MakingFunOfMorons

    I keep waiting for Trump to say the rent is too damn high.

  • Sk3ptic

    Well, I’m exhausted! Entertained, for sure, but exhausted!

  • houstonray

    I think they have commercials because our brains just can’t physically take that much horse shit at one time…

  • Ninja0980

    Not even chicken coops have this much shit.

  • Trainwreck

    Trump is killing it – from a G.O.P. teaparty perspective. Yeeehaaa!

  • Ninja0980

    Trump is making these guys look like fools.

  • Sk3ptic

    It’s fascinating to see this much pathology functioning all at once. All the denial, lack of education, lack of understanding what life is really like…just, wow.

  • JoeMyGod
    • Cuberly

      Oh wow.

      Begun the christianist revolt has.

      • Nexus1

        They weren’t part of Trumps base anyway.

  • Trainwreck

    Has anyone watched more entertainment before during a presidential debate? Damn this is good!

    • houstonray

      This is epic! And they are only going to get more contentious as the weeks go on. What I wouldn’t give to have the others on stage too…

      • Cuberly

        Good.

        If anything this shows just how they’ve been bitching and that’s all.

  • Translation: We’re gonna let Kasich speak for 20 minutes.

    • medaka

      And then not ask him any more questions.

    • Cuberly

      Ailes obvs has a woody for Kasich.

  • Dem2016

    PLEASE Ask the Donald another Question!!

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    I really want a BlackLivesMatter question.

  • Carson thinks someone other than Hillary will win? Fascinating.

  • medaka

    Will he say “brain”?

  • Ninja0980

    I guess they really, really want Kaisch to win this thing.

    • Kasich is their best bet.

    • skeptical_inquirer

      Then they better hope Donald doesn’t run as a 3rd party candidate for the Lols.

  • Octavio

    If Hillary is the boogywoman . . . yaddah, yaddah, yadda . . . . anyone? Anyone. Ferris Beuhler? Anyone>

    The GOP is NOT fiscally responsible. EVER!

  • bryan

    No questions on marriage equality…

    • Jim in TO

      They don’t want one of the candidates to say something really stupid. (Not that it has stopped them from saying stupid things.)

    • David Milley

      Interesting …

    • Because FOX is smart enough to know nothing can truly be done about it.

    There are so many moments when JEB looks and acts and has the affectations of Dubya and it gives me the creeps…

    • noni

      He wants to go back into Iraq

      • David Milley

        Yep. Easy to see in his eyes when he touches on the subject.

    • Welcome to my life during his governorship.

    • bryan

  • medaka

    You didn’t make those Wisconsin jobs, you boob.

  • Sk3ptic

  • Gustav2

    Sorry, this late, but Kasich sounded just like Trump on growth.

  • Cuberly

    Has Cruz been collecting cobwebs? HA!

  • Gustav2

    NO MORE FLOOR FOR WAGES, BENEFITS and HEALTHCARE

  • houstonray

    Who is going to hire a 70 year old person over a 25 or 30 or even 40 yr old? Raising the retirement age is the worst thing ever.

    • THEIR NOT LOOKING HARD ENUFF

    • noni

      and how many people have the ability to work at 70. People like to think they can, but ask yourself when you’re 70 just how able you are at 70

      • It depends on the occupation, but yes, many people do well to still be able to work at 65 much less 70.

      • Piet

        I can give you a hint, having hit that age, and the answer is not many.

  • Cuberly

    Beginning to think Fox doesn’t like Cruz. When was the last time he got a question.

    • Ninja0980

      No one likes Cruz.

      • Cuberly

        Ha! I think you’re right.

    Prostitutes, pimps…….did I just hear that?

    • KCMC

      yep from the holy lips

    • Gustav2

      Yup, they make too much.

        • billbear1961

          They decided quite some time ago if they’re not in power, the answer is sabotage.

          And the country not only LETS them get away with it, it REWARDS them for it!

          • Nexus1

            The American electorate can only seem to get off it’s collective ass every 4 years. If we had the same turnout and demographics every two years there would be a totally blue Congress, but alas the electorate gets burnout after each Presidential cycle. Hell half or the electorate isn’t even paying attention right now, they will be interested again by next March at the earliest.

          • billbear1961

            If reporters were honest and made it CLEAR to the American people what the right has been up to for nearly 30 years in this country–certainly since Clinton’s years in the Oval Office–this deliberate sabotage would be punished at the voting booth and it would STOP.

            It’s the only solution, Nexus!

        • billbear1961

          Democrats should make it clear, Nexus, that if this continues, WE will engage in exactly the same kind of behaviour in future and refuse to cooperate with THEM in ANY WAY.

          TWO can play this goddamned game!

          The GOP is making government IMPOSSIBLE.

      • billbear1961

        So, what’s the solution?

        Do whatever will please the GOP so they’ll behave?

        Hell, why not just hand them power?

        Apparently, if you want power in this country all you have to do is have a TANTRUM!

        But only Republicans are allowed to behave like that.

        Democrats have to behave like ADULTS.

        Quite the double standard!

        What do you think would happen if Democrats adopted those tactics, had tantrum after tantrum and engaged in endless lies and SABOTAGE?

      It will be the return of the back alley abortion, the ‘accidental’ fall down the stairs and the home abortion kit of the wire hanger. We don’t need to return to one of the more horrific parts of the 1950’s. But hey Mexico may see a huge economic boon from even more abortion tourists. Ugh.

          Reagan was “out of the office” for most of his eight years … blame NANCY! SHE was running the shop!

          • William

            Most of the blame goes to George H. W. Bush and the Director of the CIA, William J. Casey.
            Casey was kind enough to take a lethal dose of strychnine the day before he was supposed to testify before Congress.

            Interesting, Wikipedia says Casey died of a brain tumor. Back in 1987, it was called a brain hemorrhage.

  • medaka

    Did he just say “nucular” ?

    • KCMC

      uncular

    • LonelyLiberal

      Amusing story. For years, I saw a billboard talking about the ‘Nuclear Sciences.’

      Not having the best eyes, I read it as “Unclear Sciences” and thought it was very honest of them to admit that.

      • Paula

        Yes. When I was teaching science that is how we referred to it. There was science and then there were the “The Fuzzy Subjects.” πŸ˜‰

  • Ninja0980

    Funny, I seem to remember St. Ronnie dealing with Iran just fine.
    When it came to trading weapons that is.

    • William

      Before illegal weapons deals with Iran, there was the ‘keep the American hostages until January 20, 1981’ agreement. The rethuglicans are old friends with Iranian hard liners.

    Though someone apparently needs to remember that Jesus was a hippie.

    • David Milley

      True. I expected that to be a lot worse. Bad enough to get that “social experiment” line — but he moved quickly on the glories of killing.

  • Cuberly

    25% reduction = Decimated the military.

    • Octavio

    • sherman

      I’ve never understood why the Republicons have often talked about a constitutional amendment to prohibit same sex marriage, but I’ve never heard them mention an amendment to prohibit abortion. It’s almost like they want the issue to remain a battle so they can continually use it for political purposes.

      • TampaDink

        Aside from the one where the angry mob in attendance booed at the deployed serviceman who asked about his right to same sex marriage.

    Dr. Ben’s arrogance is shining through in thinking he is sooo special he would never get treated like those other blacks would.
    Guess what Ben, you are still a &#^@ to them, period.

    • skeptical_inquirer

      What annoys the hell out of me is that he had a single mother who was illiterate and worked as a domestic and he gloms on to the party of the 1%. Also he doesn’t get #BlackLivesMatter at all.

      • Ninja0980

        They think that anyone who doesn’t make it like they did is simply a lazy bum, not realizing times have changed and not everyone will have the same chances they did.
        That and the I got mine, screw everyone else.

    • disQusTed

      He just announced his candidacy just recently. I smell a whole “I’ll deliver Ohio *wink wink* Dieboldt *cough cough*” stink to him being there and not at the kiddie table. Fox must have cited recent polls from Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo, and Youngstown for cover.

      • David Milley

        Excellent observation!

      • Gustav2

        Kasich can’t deliver Ohio without cheating. His re-elect was a gift from the Ohio Democratic Party, The D candidate imploded weeks before the election and stopped campaigning, It was the worse turnout in 75 years in Ohio.

  • Suzy

    Trump and Kasich won. Bush will have to spend even more money just to stand out.

    Ted Cruz who?

      • popebuck1

        It was only fair, after making the Israelites build the pyramids and all.

        • ZhyKitty

          Agreed. In all fairness, they built them, they really should get them, or at least a large back end share of the tourist dollars.
          Of course, ISIS has been threatening to knock them all down along with all the other tombs. I read that those graves are heavily boobie trapped and some of the chambers carry diseases that aren’t part of our day to day lives anymore. It’d be beyond hilarious if they hit one of those and wiped themselves out before they could do anymore damage to anyone or anything.
          I’ll make sure to light some incense in front of my Egyptian Gods and Goddess statuary and ask them to make it so.
          (I’ll even pretend to believe to give my prayers that extra oomph. Here’s to hoping the Egyptian Gods and Goddesses understand English.)

            Well, those of us with bladder issues are going to be well and truly fucked, aren’t we? Is there going to be some kind of leak police counting when I cough, laugh, walk, etc and accidentally pee myself?
            Then again, most of us with these problems are past childbearing, so maybe everyone else can still get an abortion when they need one?
            I’ve already had two abortions (snuck mine in under the radar), and now am no longer in need of such care. lol

            i still wouldn’t call this a debate though. It was a beauty pageant. They basically tried to differentiate the candidates by helping them address some of their perceived weaknesses. But have to admit the format made for some fun moments.

          • skeptical_inquirer

            If charities could do it, they would already be doing it. Your theory has NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO basis in reality.

            If you truly believed in the crap you peddled, then you SHOULD just lay down and die if you ever come up short for any life-saving medicine or food instead of becoming the people you loathe & chastise. Do not beg, borrow or crowd fund but just demand of yourself what you demand of others.But of course, you will say “i’m the exception! I’m the exception!” and become a hypocrite who refuses to acknowledge 1) the hypocrisy or 2) the damage you inflicted on others for demanding they live to an idea you couldn’t.

          • Peter Wde

            I promise I will.
            I won’t.
            I won’t.

            That was easy.

          • skeptical_inquirer

            Words, mere words. You are as trustworthy as Bristol Palin who was paid economically with actual money to push abstinence, only to be pregnant again. I am sure that she was just as sure and easy when she said “I’ll never let this happen to me again” years before it actually did.

            When you lie in bed at home rather than rack up medical bills THEN you can prove it. Just snarkily saying that “I pwomise, pinky swear” while crossing your fingers mentally and/or adding “unless I get cancer or a heart attack or I get hit by a truck” doesn’t cut it.

          • Peter Wde

            Words are all we have here, will just have to do for now.

          • skeptical_inquirer

            You could always make a living will where you demand that the hospital do absolutely nothing (and I mean absolutely freaking nothing) to resuscitate you and make sure the people you trust enough to follow your directions and act as your agent are on board. That’s a concrete step.

            One nurse was hardcore enough to tattoo “DNR” over her heart.

          • Peter Wde

            All that’s been taken care of.

          • Yup, fuck you if you’re unlucky.

          • skeptical_inquirer

            The funny thing is that people like you say this UNTIL the very second you can’t pay then others go “We’re kicking you out of your house/hospital/taking your car away from you.” It happens ALL THE DAMN TIME.

          • Peter Wde

            Laws of economics must be observed.

          • skeptical_inquirer

            Does it apply to you? Why not just say that you would gladly apply those laws to yourself and lay down & die if the laws of economics worked against you? Why should anybody help you considering you flagrantly bellow that you find it not in your interest to help others? Yet I am sure that were you in trouble, you would scream “Help me! Help me!” even if you could not in the least recompense your would-be rescuer. In fact, you should be telling your rescuer to think of themselves and not waste their economic worth in helping you if you actually believed in your principles.

            It’s the hypocrisy of your fellows that make me roll my eyes at your “philosophy.” It is merely an attempt to ennoble the sociopathic behavior.

          • Peter Wde

            But of course.

            I can see you’re not persuaded.

          • skeptical_inquirer

            Of course not. Someone as selfish as you will gladly make an exception for oneself and make all sorts of rationalizations. Hell, look at Nancy Reagan. When it’s HER husband with Alzheimer’s then stem cell research is A-OK. You see tons of politicians/priests who go out of their way to make LGBT miserable but then get busted toe-tapping in airports or sneaking around in bars. Basically, their booty call is the only OK booty call. Abortion clinic workers fume at protesters who sneak in, get one done then keep protesting.

            Please, do not waste everybody’s time with the idea that somehow someone as selfish as you wouldn’t suddenly change their mind if you were suffering kidney stones (said to be as bad as labor pains) or five minutes from keeling over from a massive heart attack.

            What advances in health care coverage have the Republicans made in the last 7 years?

          • 2amor

            Since St. Ronne became pres. No more mental health!!

          • NZArtist

            That’s true. He was leading by example.

          • MDB

          • Peter Wde

            Trying a little too hard there…

      • DaddyRay

        Well now we know you are a republican because they notoriously don’t have a sense of humor.

        • Peter Wde

          Yes, notoriously so I believe.

  • Cuberly
    • Does the word “pussy” come to mind?

      • Cuberly

        He’s an exposed insecure nerve.

      • 2amor

        • Steven Leahy

          I love that show. I have the whole series on DVD πŸ™‚

          • MDB

            I do not know HOW they managed to keep a straight-face long enough to finish an episode !!! Each cast member always gave a brilliant performance. πŸ™‚

        • I just finished downloading the Australian version (Mr. H gets shipped Down Under, but 90% of the eps in the two seasons are the same) earlier this evening. Got a handful of episodes on Youtube and the rest of ’em through a torrent (which took about a week to find the last 4% on!) πŸ™‚

          Hooked the bf on the show, but for some reason, he didn’t take to the Aussie remake.

        • Gregory In Seattle

          Ah, Molly Sugden and her spun-sugar technicolor hair.

    • TampaDink

      So sayeth the paragon of good behavior.

    • clay

  • THEBEARCUB

    • Menergy

  • Happy Dance

    That Trump…he sure is some debatehair

  • KQCA

    I just got in from work, missed the debate, and thought I’d log in and read JMG comments, but……ONE THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY EIGHT fricken comments?

    Okay, as I start at the very beginning (a very good place to start) and read each one aloud, my hubby will do interpretive dance in his lavender-scented Zac Posen leotard.

    A-one…and a-two….

    http://fortune.com/2015/08/07/fox-news-debate-livestream/?xid=yahoo_fortune Here is a hilarious article about Fox’s screwing up its livestream.

    • JT

      “Them innertubes are kinda complicated. We kept pressing the wrong button.”

  • Edmund Allin

    1282 comments? Here goes my morning…

    • KQCA

      Edmund Allin, what’s a nice guy like you doing in a place like this anyway? πŸ˜‰

  • FAEN

    Huckabee was a loathesome asshole.

    • anne marie in philly

      WAS? IS and always WILL BE, honey!

      • JT

        His dog is speaking through him.

  • JT

    One guy on MSNBC says Rubio did the best in the clown show last night. Anybody I agree?

    • Sam_Handwich

      he always looks like a nervous teenager to me.

      i thought the whole thing was an assclown parade

      • JT

        Thanks, Sam. I’m glad I missed it.

    • Steven Leahy

      I saw about half of it and thought Rubio was pitiful. I thought Kasich seemed the best of a whole bunch of bad.

      • The Professor

        Kasich btw the way is the most moderate.

      • JT

        I saw a clip this morning where he seemed to have the most “moderate” view of same sex marriage–for a Rep.

    • KCMC

      Rubio only carried prettiest, pretty delivery, killer boy-wonder smile.

  • Sam_Handwich

    ahahahaha..

    the poll at Drudgereport has Trump winning the debate, and his margin is YUUUUGE!

    http://www.drudgereport.com/now.htm

  • JT

    Trump phones in on Morning Schmoe and cites his “winning” polls about the debate on Drudge and Time. The Drudge “poll” is “not scientific”. I don’t know about Time’s.

    He later says everyone on stage congratulated him. LOL. I wonder why. They earlier asked him publicly to give them money.

  • JT

    Someone on Morning Schmoe reports that a 69 year old Republican woman who’d been polled before was called and said she was furious at Fox for the way they treated Trump and now her eyes were opened about Fox.

    Heh. You’ve just go to wonder what they were opened to since they’ve been blind so long.

    • Gustav2

      But like my rural Ohio in-laws, she will be watching Fox News 24/7 today.

  • Stubenville

    Wait, The Donald had some sort of soiree for the other candidates and Fox broadcast it?

    • Gustav2

      Yeah, and he paid all the other candidates to show up.

  • lattebud

    Reminded me of a beauty pageant interview selection… Miss South Carolina anyone??

      That poor gal. Digital is forever.

  • BudClark

    Did I miss the swimsuit competition/

  • KQCA

    Any one of them is wealthier than I could ever aspire to be, yet I find myself feeling sorry and embarrassed for them. All that power and wealth and yet they are absolutely pitiful. Their swaths of arrogance thinly veils their lonely torment, yet they are blind to it. These faces remind me that success and quality of life have nothing to do with money and power.
