Running thoughts on Republican Debate #3
Skipped the kid’s table debate in favor of an elective root canal.
The circus music has started up.
Everyone is running for a government position. Everyone hates the government. Contradiction?
Chris Christie promises to create another traffic jam to prevent Ms Clinton from reaching her inauguration.
Rand Paul promises to make more irrelevant speeches in the Senate.
Kasich has had a lot of coffee. He’s en fuego, targeting Trump.
Donald Trump says Kasich was on the board of Lehman Brothers when it tanked. Lehman Brothers is the third rail of Republican economics.
The Canadian Senator (Ted Cruz) says he has hard numbers.
Carly Fiorina says she got a lot done at HP. So much that she was fired.
Hearing Marco Rubio dodge the question about his absentee rate in the Senate makes me thirsty.
Jeb! just destroyed Rubio. OMG he called him French!
Ted Cruz is choked up. He’s talking about Mensheviks and Bolsheviks.
Cruz cut off! The moderators are living dangerously.
In response to Christie’s comments about “entitlement programs,” Huckabee just called Christie a 400 pound man eating Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
Republican Huckabee mentions Republican Bernie Madoff. Odd.
Pistols might spice up the debate.
Jeb! just said he would kiss a man. Did Jeb! just come out?
Rubio says liar liar Hillary’s pant suit is on fire!
Mr Trump says “Down with Super Pacs, up with Tupac!”
Mr Cruz would downsize the IRS by putting tax forms on postcards. Sounds like a Canadian idea.
Jeb! says he wants radical change. He wants radical change in his poll numbers.
Trump just got fact checked, from his own website. This might be a first.
Trump says Guns Guns Guns! More Guns! Stop the sickos!
Jeb! hates the federal government. He’s running to be the Executive of the Federal Government.
Christie from New Jersey is fine with dodgy gambling. Hello Sopranos vote!
The moderators could save time if a graphic “Hates Federal Government” were flashed over each candidate. Most of their answers circle back to this sentiment.
The big finish:
Rand Paul promises to talk for hours and hours on CSPAN tomorrow.
Chris Christie is fed up (obviously).
Canadian Cruz wants to destroy government.
Fired CEO Fiorina fantasizes about beating Clinton.
Surgeon Carson wants America to be great again.
Trump wants to win. He won a shorter debate. He’ll be a great President.
Rubio has a thirst for the American dream.
Jeb! has a proven record of success, except in this campaign.
Huckabee turns to apocalyptic imagery. As President, he’ll delay The Rapture.
Kasich wants stronger families, better neighbors. What this has to do with being President is unclear.
Winner: BMW. That was a nice looking Beamer in one of the commercials.
Losers: Everyone else.
