I wish all DUers were watching this Republican Debate (Fox Noise)
Edited on Sun Oct-21-07 08:12 PM by Kurt_and_Hunter
Watching the pug debate on FOX here... It's like "Scared Straight." Really puts the petty back and forth of DU in perspective.

It's jaw-clenching... listening to them talk, I feel like snakes are crawling on me.

Rudy really is Mussolini. "If Hillary wins, our military morale will collapse and the Islamofascists will win."

The hate America sooooo much. All they talk about is the apocalyptic destruction of America, and it gets a standing ovation every time.

3. I didn't even realize there
was one tonight! I did the last repuke debate, it was nauseating to watch. How can any one of these fools even be getting near 50% in the polls.

5. Relax the Sox are up 2-0.
It's be nice to get some good sound bites from this though. Like Guliani bringing up the Laser.

6. Why would I want to raise my stress levels?
It's unhealthy. I already know they are bad news. They've already lost my respect and gained my enmity. Why give them more air time in my home?

14. Actually, I found it interesting that he followed Ghouliani and Mittens
and emphasized how "when he debates Hillary" it will be respectful and will be over policy, not personality. "That's what America wants." You know what...he's right.

three letters: KGB.

38. McCain is totally off the map
Judging by his post-show interview, he wants to restart the Cold War. He wouldn't shut up about Putin.

"I'd kick (Russia) out of the G8 in a New York minute."

Do we even live in the same universe as these freak shows? So much vitriol. Oh man, do they hate Hillary. Her name has come up over and over and over.

It does put things into perspective, however. Once our nominee is selected and goes head-to-head with whatever knuckle-draggin' loser they choose, we Dems will be totally united and in good shape.

23. I just turned it on 20 minutes ago at 9 when I saw a post about it
I haven't heard any references to Hillary yet -- I have just caught the utopian conversation about privatizing SS and now the ramblings about Russia.

25. Over and over--Democrats, Hilary Single Payer Health Care
Don't we wish someone was pushing Single Payer.

Let's bash Hilary Night.

Hilary not capable of being Commander In Chief. All candidates
said this is true.

37. They are bashing Hillary too soon!
They were supposed to support her as the Democratic candidate, as Bush has done...then when she gets the nomination, THEN they attack her as a lesbian and an Ellen Degenerate!

By jumping the gun, it gives Democrats a chance to nominate somebody, ANYBODY else.

And this post debate followup is like la-la land. It's a complete Faux-fabricated reality.

Hillary is for a "weak military" and "strong lawsuits"!

43. scares the living shit out of me
Both the debate and the Fox/Luntz post debate coverage
I'm telling myself this all isn't real... there's no place
like home, there's no place like home....
Seriously if ever there was an ad to support your guy in
the primary but vote for the dem nominee in the general
this is it... and I'm not happy about that but its reality

29. Everybody catch this post-debate focus group?
It was staggering. Frank Luntz rounded up the twelve dumbest people he could find to watch the debate, and their reactions were legendary.

Two separate people said Giuliani is "strong" and "has the track record to keep us safe".

"When I think about Hillary, all I can think about is how my taxes will go up!"

42. It seems like the Kurds are winning. They just whacked 17 more Turkish soldiers today.


NATO will be going down the toilet if Turkey
is forced to invade Kurdish Iraq in order to
defend itself and the Iraqi Kurd leadership
has said it can do nothing about the PKK.

It appears that the Kurds are openly provoking
the Turks into war on the assumption that the
US will back them leading to an independent
Kurdistan. This will light up the whole region
from Syria to the Pakistan border. Bear in mind
Pakistan looks like its about to fall apart,
especially if Bhutto is assassinated.

But the surge is working, so there's that.
