20:01 – 10 candidates, many of whom nobody even knows, and not a single woman managed to squeeze in.
20:03 – the very first question was designed to give protagonism to Trump. Cute.
20:08 – to make Trump even more attractive, the host gives the floor to some obscure and hopeless doctor who can utter nothing but platitudes.
20:09 – pretty boy Rubio just conceded that Hillary Clinton is better qualified than any Republican candidate and proceeded to make weird noises about Amazon.
20:12 – Bush is trying hard not to look sleepy and not succeeding. A candidate who has to repeat “I’m my own man” so many times, brings to mind the lady who protests too much.
20:14 – once again, the hosts seem to work in unison with Trump. Did he bribe them? This looks rehearsed.
20:15 – Ted Cruz makes lizard – like head moves again. This guy is such a creep.
20:17 – Christie said he’s proud of his state’s horrible economy.
20:18 – Walker wriggled and avoided answering a question. What a coward.
20:19 – Huckabee is as crazy as usual. I wonder if these weirdos even realize how ridiculous the obsession of 10 men with abortion, an issue they are not equipped to understand in the physiological level, is.
20:21 – Rand Paul is the funniest. He just called himself “a leading voice” on something.
20:22 – some guy I’ve never seen is actually saying something reasonable.
Fox News is doing a great job. The questions are polemical and strong. Everything is well-organized.
20:26 – the hosts give Trump a chance to talk to Bush directly. They seem to want him to insult Bush. Trump didn’t bite.
20:29 – I haven’t actually seen Trump speak for years. And now that I see him at the debate, it’s obvious to me that he’s unwell. I don’t mean that as an insult. He gets very agitated by the end of each statement. And he’s not in full control of it. What we thought was a political position, turned out to be an illness.
And now Trump is the subject of the debate.
20:34 – somebody with the last name of Rubio really shouldn’t be dumping on immigrants.
20:36 – Walker flim-flams again. Is it like his thing these days?
20:37 – Ted Cruz declares support for a really horrifying and ridiculous law that I never even heard about.
20:39 – Rand Paul is yelling like he’s possessed. Christie openly says he’s being ridiculous. And he’s right. Rand Paul looks sulky and tantrumy. Does anybody even support this guy?
20:42 – Ted Cruz wants to defeat ISIS with the words “radical Islam.” I guess “abracadabra” has lost its potency as a magic word.
20:44 – Bush managed to squeeze out that the Iraq war was a mistake. It only took him 30 tries to arrive at a position on the issue.
20:46 – Walker reminds me so much of Putin. The same gestures, the same quiet, uninflected voice, the same incapacity to answer a direct question, the same lack of charisma. And, of course, the same war on women and unions.
20:48 – it’s funny how now everybody is “I’m against the war with Iraq! I was always against!” Why did we go to the stupid war if nobody supported it?
20:49 – Trump made a funny jab at Rand Paul.
20:51 – Walker said Hillary messes up everything she touches. It’s funny to hear him, of all people, to accuse people of messing things up.
20:55 – everybody is saying something weird and incomprehensible about the Common Core. What I found endlessly fascinating is how these candidates compete in expressing hatred of the federal government while auditioning for the job of said federal government’s leader.
21:01 – they are do terrified of Hillary. It’s pleasing to observe. For now, she has it made, so I understand their fear.
21:03 – the Ben Carson fellow talks about useful idiots, illustrating the power of projection.
21:06 – Walker’s plan for the economy is to sink a packet into repealing Obamacare? Lordy.
Ok, the rest has got to go under the fold.
21:09 – the host says the word “entitlements” with the same facial expression I say “Putin.” Huckabee is defending social security. Are his voters all elderly?
21:11 – Huckabee managed to bring prostitutes and pimps into his discussion of taxes. Old age is sad, indeed.
21:14 – I’m liking the way Trump pushed back on the bankruptcy question. Of course, people like him when the alternative is a flabby Bush or a monotonous Walker.
21:17 – everybody feels so sorry for Perry that he was given a little snippet of time.
21:19 – did Rand Paul just try to set up John Kerry by quoting a personal conversation with him??
Nobody is even mentioning Russia. Very disappointing.
21:27 – observe Bush’s body language. He’s screaming “I’m weak” in every gesture.
21:29 – Trump brought up Dubya. Good job!
21:33 – OK, what’s wrong with this Kasich fellow? Why is he so normal? Has he wandered onto the wrong stage?
I can’t liveblog Walker. Whenever he begins to speak, I doze off. AND WILL SOMEBODY FINALLY TALK ABOUT RUSSIA!!! It’s unbelievable that so much time is spent on blastocysts and none on fucking Russia.
21:40 – the fuck! The idiots can’t stay on point and talk about Russia. It’s all Iran this and Iran that. And now they move on to Syria! Stupid fucks! None of them can say anything about Russia.
21:43 – Walker somehow tried to link Putin to Hillary ‘ s emails. I knew he’d be the one to put me to sleep with this painfully boring subject.
21:46 – Rand Paul is militating against giving money to Israel. Does he have no plans at all to continue being a Republican politician?
21:51 – the viewers are such crazies. One is asking if the candidates have received word from God. Of course, the real scary thing is that quite a few of them think they are God.
21:53 – abortion again?? These guys haven’t gotten laid in years, it seems.
22:06 – “it’s over” Kelly yelped happily.
