Ubekibekibekibekistanstan Ho!

“CBS News and National Journal… are announcing a Republican presidential debate to take place on November 12 at 8 p.m. ET. It will take place at Wofford College in Spartanburg, S.C. and will be moderated by CBS Evening News anchor and managing editor Scott Pelley and National Journal congressional correspondent Major Garrett. The debate, the first on broadcast television, will focus primarily on national security.” [CBS]


How many more of these damn debates are going to happen? Isn’t there a Slap Chop informertial they could air instead?

I don’t remember seeing 8-10 demrat debates in the “grate” year of 08.

@ManchuCandidate: God help us when we actually get into the primary/general election year. I expect a presidential debate every night. Think of the audience as a big focus group and the GOP will continue trotting the gang out on stage in the forlorn hope anybody gives a shit. To date, not so much.

@ManchuCandidate: If you don’t count Mike Gravel, which almost goes without saying, it was a two-person contest by the end of January, but there had been twenty debates up to then, and they got an even earlier start of it than the Republicans this cycle.

@mellbell: I ignored everything until Iowa last time. Then again, I wasn’t blogging. Great power, etc.

@Dave H: many may not like the sound of this, but i expect gingrich to be the last clown standing when the circus tent finally comes down and the barnum and bailey train leaves the station packed full of future fox news unintentional comedians. neutered spoke the truth about the republican’t attempts at social engineering and caught hell for it. he is less insane than the others and seems to have a better understanding of how to play this game. he is the grizzled veteran compared to this relatively fresh crop of rookies. one poll has him second with a whopping 19% support behind romney.

@jwmcsame: Newt’s also on his third wife.

But it is Last Clown Standing. With Deranger Rick imploding, I’m back to betting on Mittens as the Survivor winner. Depends on whether the teabaggers coalesce behind someone else early on, or whether they split the anti-Mitt vote. You can win with 20 percent if everyone else has 19.

I, for one, would like to acknowledge the service of Corpsman JNOV (USN, Ret.) and any other steenker with a uni in the closet and discharge papers stuffed in a drawer somewhere.
