So long john and thanks for all the fish! Plus hysterical republican debate on Fox.
Last night I did two things: I watch an entire Republican “debate” on “Fox News.” and I stayed up way past my bedtime and watched the last “Daily Show.”
I didn’t think I was going to watch the debate because I have “Dish” and they had some kind of issue with “Fox News” and a while back it was taken off. Fox news would only let you watch if you had cable. That’s because everyone MUST have cable. RIght? Then I looked and it was there. I DVR’d it so I”m going to back and watch but today I’ll let the experts do their thing.
Before the show Bill O’Reilly was on doing his “fair and balanced” assessment and was busy sharpening his knives against Trump.
What was different and actually fun for me is I watched it with Twitter on so I had the benefit of some great real time discourse going on.
There was a statement made at the beginning that if they had ALL the candidates up there it would be like “herding cats.”
Herding cats may refer to:
- An idiom that refers to a frustrating attempt to control or organize a class of entities which are uncontrollable or chaotic.
- Herding Cats: A Life in Politics, a book written by Senator Trent Lott
I also found out that Eve Sample Dog Blue has a twitter account.
I will say this. The “Fox” team must have gotten their marching orders to demolish Trump because they asked him really stupid questions. They were actually spewing at him. It was not pretty. I never heard of this pledge which was a pledge to not run as an independent and Donald Trump said no thanks. New to me. The only pledge I know if Grover Norquist’s pledge not to raise taxes.
As Donald Trump seeks to build on his momentum in the Republican primary, turning the evident voter enthusiasm surrounding his candidacy into the concrete infrastructure of a viable campaign, he’ll have to do so without help from two of the GOP’s biggest benefactors.
Industrialists Charles and David Koch, who have used their multibillion-dollar business empire to build a network of conservative advocacy groups, have decided that Trump will not be able to access their extensive database on voter information, nor will he be invited to participate in their conservative cattle-calls, CBS News’ Julianna Goldman confirms.
Trumps attitude is “bite me!”
This a wonderful and amazing thing.
This is good. The world has gone a little wild.
It pains me to put a link to the Drudge Report. Here it is!
Here is a breakdown of the poll results:
- Donald Trump: 38 percent
- Ted Cruz: 15.5 percent
- Neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson: 10.2 percent
- Florida Sen. Marco Rubio: 9.7 percent
- Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul: 9.3 percent
- Ohio Gov. John Kasich: 4.9 percent
- Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker: 4.5 percent
- Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee: 3.5 percent
- Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush: 2.5 percent
- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: 1.4 percent
Donald Trump spokesman Michael Cohen makes Frank Luntz STFU
Someone bring Roger Ailes a bottle of tums.
Last night there was even humor!
and remarks from old candidates
But in the end no one talked about anything that was important to us. They talked about what was important to them.
Then after this we all tuned into the Daily Show for the last show.
You can watch the whole episode here.
I thought this was the funniest part.
We’ll miss you John and we will take your advice to heart.
Quite a night and lot’s to do.
Fox News: Not everyone has cable. I’m getting rid of mine now that John has left the Daily Show. If you really want to spread democracy then open it up to everyone and not just the people who subscribe to you on cable.
You GOPer’s running with your hair on fire from Donald Trump: How in the world will you sit in the Oval Office and deal with other world leaders. Are you going to whine at Vladamir Putin? (speaking of oligarchs)
Well thats all Folks.
Its a wrap!
