Anyone who watched that much of the GOP debates deserves to go to the special hell.

DamnYankees: Anyone who watched that much of the GOP debates deserves to go to the special hell.


Hey now! I think I've seen all but two. But after last night? Wowee. Now they're just collectively doing damage to the GOPs chances. If I didn't know any of them going into the debate I'd conclude Ron Paul is a nice old man and the other three should be launched into the sun.

The discussion after the God question could have made the Pope turn atheist.

I just watch the highlights after it's over... with no baseball or football right now, it's basically my SportsCenter.

Of course, subby. It's the best fiction on television

I knew a tv character who probably voted Republican. You know what happened to him?

"The headline filled Angry Drunk Beureaucrat with self-loathing. Had he been Jack the Ripper, he would have soothed himself in a most unsavory way. But instead, he just sat in his car and ate a whole thing of candy beans."

I don't get it. The only Republican I remember from F&G is Cindy Sanders.

Debates still had much better comedic value then that shiatty sitcom Arrested Development

I wouldn't expect someone who doesn't know the difference between "retarded' and "retardant" to understand Arrested Development

Mark my words: Eventually debates are going to be a year-round series. One of the all news channels will make this happen. Unofficial campaigning begins the day after a Presidential election anyway, why not formalize it with debates?

They'll start doing it like Survivor or Idol - 12 or 13 "episodes" a couple times a year. It won't really matter if it's the first year of a term: throw those suits up on a stage and let them yell at each other for an hour and a half.

The BBC already does this in the UK, but with different cabinet members and other public figures.

It's enjoyable, substantive, and interactive (they take audience and submitted questions). Why can't the US do it?

He played the dad in "Webster", didn't he? My memory of him is shaky though.

Because 99% of the questions would be...colorful.

That's Dick Butkis. Alex P Keaton is the character Kirk Cameron played in Who's the Boss?

I love the episode where the Tea Partiers scare the shiat out of the Reavers.

I love how he keeps saying "this is a good show, why was it cancelled?" on the War Stories commentary.

My days of not taking the debates seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

I liked what Obama said when asked whether or not he was following the Republican race and the debates: "I'm going to wait until everyone is voted off the island."
 
2012-01-27 03:59:38 PM  
The Republican debates are more entertaining, I thought everyone loved a good comedy.
 
2012-01-27 04:07:44 PM  
I made a comment about this on facebook, and mentioned Arrested Development specifically, and a friend replied with "At least Arrested Development waited until the 3rd season to introduce a retarded character."

Yeah, who'd have thought he'd go from dressing in drag with Peter Scolari to winning an Oscar for acting with a painted football? Amazing career.

I don't want to live on this planet any more.

(Though seriously, real political debates have a place, and should be televised. They should NOT be a fiesta of talking points, pandering, and douchebaggery. Then again, I have no problem with people seeing the madness the Republican party has arrived at.)

Who cares? These losers just debate the same shiat over and over again, the same psychopaths in the audience cheer whenever sick people die or gay soldiers talk.

The best part is that Newt-farking-Gingrinch is emerging as some sort of front runner because of them. If that is not a sign of how overplayed they are, I don't know what ain't.
