Some very important topics didn't score very highly on the candidates' list of concerns.

Robert Frost said that Hell is a half-filled auditorium.....

Robert Frost said that Hell is a half-filled auditorium.



If that's true, then the GOP Kiddie Table Debate is Hell cubed because, yeah, the barn really was as barren as the GOP's policy cupboard.

After the last echoes of "Reagan!", "Planned Parenthood" and "Benghaaaazi" had faded into the twilight, Former Mitt Romney Economic Advisor, Wrecker-of-Companies and Demonized-of-Sheep -- Carly Fiorina -- appears to have emerged as the least embarrassing member of the Junior Chamber of Crazy.

Not one of them could carry Obama's jockstrap on their best day.

Huffpost Top Commenter Devastates Republican Field of Candidates

If you are looking for something to wrap up your night after watching and/or blogging about tonight's GOP mini and prime time debates circus shows... look no further, this is it:

Mark Greine:

Not one of them could carry Obama's jockstrap on their best day. Whether you like him or not, he was handed a disaster on multiple levels by Bush 43. All he did was save the nation from a depression, ended two very unpopular wars, cut deficit spending more than any POTUS in history, given access to healthcare to ten's of millions and above all when he leaves office the country will be in much better condition than when he started. For those that oppose him just be thankful he can't run for a third term because there ain't one of them that could beat him. Not one.

Tongue-Tied Rick Perry Refers To 'Ronald Raven' During Debate

I LOVE JON STEWART!

for SO many reasons, here is just one more:



Jon Stewart is less than a week away from retiring from The Daily Show, but he’s already thinking about his next act: crusading this fall in Washington for the Sept. 11 first responders.

The Comedy Central star has promised to make a Capitol Hill trip as early as September to support a bill extending an expiring law that provides billions of dollars in medical health benefits for the police, firefighters and other emergency rescue workers who spent time at Ground Zero, as well as survivors of the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Stewart committed to lobby the very lawmakers he’s made a career out of skewering during a backstage greenroom chat early in July with John Feal, an Army veteran and post-9/11 cleanup worker who is spearheading the advocacy push for the legislation. Feal told POLITICO that he expected Stewart to firm up the date for the visit after his final Daily Show appearance on Thursday.

Bernie Sanders Explains What Americans Should Look For In Tonight's GOP Debate

“Listen closely, and this is what they will tell you,” Sanders advised. “They want to give more tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires at a time when the rich are getting much richer. … Essentially, when you watch that debate, just imagine if you are one of the wealthiest people in this country and extremely greedy and selfish, and you're going to have 10 candidates more or less talking about your needs and not the needs of the working people.”
