Politicians vs. Impersonator
Politician vs. Poster
Actor and Retired Politician vs. Chair

The War on Straw will get out of control, and we'll be lucky to live through it.

BrotherEarth: Let me be the first to congratulate Elizabeth Colbert Busch for having just won a Senate seat.

...since she's currently running for the House of Representatives, that's exceptionally bold.

Is there some sort of bet among GOP members where the person who does the absolute stupidest thing wins the pot? It sure seems like it.

How do we treat most people who stand on a street corner and argue with a picture?

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Why does the poster have notes to review? Is he that dedicated to accuracy?

Wouldn't she need a cardboard standup of a teleprompter to fulfill all the right-wing fantasies?

The moderator was all over the place. The poster kept getting the last word. Totally unfair.

I debated myself the other day. The only reason I lost is because I'm so darned good at arguing a contrary viewpoint.

No I'm not.

stevetherobot: After the debate he asked the poster to hike the Appalachian Trail with him.

Elizabeth Colbert Busch should challenge him to a debate held at the state park home to the Appalachian Trail.

Saiga410: Am I the only one that notice the person holding up the poster has nice ankles?

I was wondering how much money his campaign wasted by paying a staffer to stand there and hold the picture for the duration of the "debate" instead of getting an easel.

These are serious candidates!

The sight of the aide's feet peeking out from under the poster is just hilarious to me.

he likened himself to a soldier in the Battle of the Alamo

He is aware that the defenders of the Alamo lost, right?
Also... is he aware that the people in the Alamo were a bunch of a-holes fighting for their "right" to keep slaves in Mexico even though it was illegal in that country?

lennavan: So Sanford's a farking joke but I do find it pretty shiatty that they're only going to have one debate.  I'd really like to see elections go in the direction of less advertisements and speeches and more debates.

It's a House seat. They're already having one more debate than most people will bother to watch.

After the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) released a brutal ad last week that mocked Sanford's 2009 mistress scandal, the former governor took out a full page ad in Sunday's edition of the Charleston Post & Courier in which he likened himself to a soldier in the Battle of the Alamo and accused Colbert Busch and Pelosi of attempting to "buy this race."

Wait...I thought he was more like King David?

Poor guy.  On top of everything else, he's got multiple personality disorder.
