Clearly the only way to pick the candidate is who can scream the "UNDER GOD" part of the Pledge of the Allegiance the loudest as rated by audience applause.

As usual, it is chaos caused by the GOP's own stupidity. They did this to themselves.

It's usually the rest of us that they screw over. I hope they enjoy every minute of it.

Chaos?  Nonsense!  The Republicans will always elect the worse person possible.

"We've had timekeepers, we've had all sorts of systems of bells and lights and whistles-you know, your time is up, your time is up-and, and guess what? It doesn't work."

I've never seen a debate where a microphone is actually turned off, let alone one where there is an actual punishment for breaking the rules. Imagine if you lost delegates every 10 seconds you went over time? That might shut some people up.

Just get all 20+ candidates on one stage and let them all talk at the same time - to each other, the crowd, their donors, their preferred deity... - the public can just get individual mic feeds from their preferred candidate, and we decide who won based on which candidate had the most person-listening-time over the broadcast.

Yeah, I don't know why they don't just turn off the mike. Time is time. No interruptions, no talking over, no going over. Your mike is on when it is your turn to talk and only then. If you stand up there screaming so you can be heard over the other person's mike, so be it.

Most of them don't need kompromat, they dedicate their lives to hatred and destruction for the love of the game.

I am sure it will make the 2015 debates look like a mensa meeting. Instead of talking about the size of their dicks they will just whip them out on stage.
Maybe not even hold primaries and just declare Trump king again like last time.
 
2022-12-02 10:32:59 AM  
In keeping with the spirit of the modern GOP any candidate who is knocked off the stage and has both feet hit the ground is eliminated. When only two candidates remain they lower the steel cage.

Absolutely, but be prepared for every primary candidate to either start yelling at the top of his lungs when the mic cuts off or declare after the debate that he had a brilliant answer that nobody heard because he was censored.

Because, the point is spectacle. The winner is irrelevant, the wealthy class won't suffer regardless.

Having the GOP clown show candidates trying to yell over each other would be amusing though.

When Democrats fight internally, it's regarding philosophical arguments about the direction and tone of the party, which does lead into deep divisions and as witnessed on Fark, 500+ comments on a thread.

Republican in-fighting is simply a dick measuring contest between two or more factions, and they'll rally around who's got the biggest dick. That's why they can fall in line so easily, because they're pretty much in agreement with the big things in their party. There's no Republican in office that's concerned about reaching across the aisle.

The difference between now and then was the 2016 candidates were all party loyalists who tucked their tail and started polishing Trumps knob when he became the front runner conveniently forgetting the nasty things he said about them. Now Desantis will most likely be the front runner and Trump will burn things to ground with rhetoric and lawsuits while his supporters vow to never vote for sad little Ronnie (insulting pet name TBD.)

I mean this is the party who's official platform was "Whatever Donny Wants". Don't imagine for a second they won't hoist that bellowing orange shiat-gibbon back on a pedestal the second it starts gibbering about a possible 3rd party run.

Huckabee  - The guy who thinks the debate process is broken:  awarded ONE delegate during the 2016 Iowa caucus. Immediately ended his campaign and didn't even make it to NH.


The process may be broken... Huck was and would have been a terrible candidate regardless of the rules.
