10:47

upnorthgirl:

10:47

Sarah Jones:
Bachmann says people want outside of Washington – she’s the congresswoman, so she’s “out of DC”?
10:47

Adalia Woodbury:
She wants his 666.
10:47

upnorthgirl:
consistent conservative
10:47

Brian McLain:
Oh…votes…I was about to say wasn’t that what got him in trouble?
10:47

10:47

Brian McLain:
She wants Herman’s what?!
10:47

Adalia Woodbury:
Ok, Jason, there you go! Michele Bachmann is chanelling him.
10:47

Newt is a man of truth just not to his first or second wife.
10:46

crystalwolf:
If we do survive? FEAR! Hey what about Susan Lindauer and 911?
10:46

upnorthgirl:

Sarah Jones:
Grandpa Gridlock is speaking now. Audience loves him! FORGET THE 90’s GOd forgave him!
10:45

Rmuse:
Why do they call Newt Mr. Speaker? He was kicked out for being a douche…I mean unethical douche.
10:45

QueerjohnPA:
Mitt: I believe my positions are the right positions or I wouldn’t have them.
10:45

10:44

Comment From Jason Easley
1880s? Ron Paul wants us to go back to the 1680s.
10:44

Brian McLain:
I know…trust me…sadly I know
10:44

Sarah Jones:
I am so bored. The tans keep talking and I have learned nothing except that you all are super funny.
10:44

Ray:

10:44

Janine Wallace:

10:44

QueerjohnPA:

10:44

Rmuse:
Ray, were they on about the war again?
10:44

upnorthgirl:

10:44

Adalia Woodbury:
Brian, the GOp doesn’t believe in either of those things.
10:44

upnorthgirl:
kum-by-ya
10:44

Ray:
Why won’t any of these “journalist” ask THIS question about war with IRan.

Where will the money come from? If you borrow it, why the hell wont you borrow to rebuild American, but you’ll borrow for Bombs
10:43

crystalwolf:
All of them parrots for fox news. Ron Paul rip it.
10:43

Rmuse:
Janine 1880 nice
10:43

Brian McLain:
Not enough questions on civil liberties and foreign policy and war. It is then he becomes HULK PAUL!
10:43

Adalia Woodbury:
Janine, or earlier.
10:43

Comment From Jason Easley
No Iran, Ray. A loaf of bread is $7500 right.
10:43

Sarah Jones:
Yeah, so Republicans will run against ObamaCares:-) GOOD LUCK with that clowns!
10:43

Janine Wallace:
Rick’s “america back on track” equals back to the 1880s
10:43

Rmuse:
Sarah, last poll said over 50% of country now likes ObamaCares. And it’s growing.
10:43

crystalwolf:
When is Ron Paul going to Rip it up? Tear these bastards a new one.
10:43

Brian McLain:
Rick Perry is stealing Paul’s schtick?
10:42

Sarah Jones:
Jason, they didn’t realize 10k was a lot of money until you said something. Is that like a week’s salary for the 99%?
10:42

upnorthgirl:
ok, hug coming
10:42

Ray:
They talk IRAN yet?
10:42

Sarah Jones:
hahah Muse:-) That’s my brother!
10:42

Sarah Jones:
They are cowards Rmuse. They were told to beat up Obama but not say anything mean about him because Americans like him….so they just keep nattering on about Obama Cares.
10:42

Rmuse:
Sarah, how do you know I was not? LOL
10:42

upnorthgirl:

Comment From Jason Easley
Back to work on my debate wrap up that will be posted as soon as the debate ends. Just wanted to pop by and say hi.
10:41

Rmuse:
Why aren’t they railing on each other?
10:41

Comment From Jason Easley
Romney shows he’s in touch with the 99% by betting Rick Perry 10 grand, and he wonders why he isn’t winning.
10:41

upnorthgirl:
I woudl never listine to newt tapes. that
10:41

Sarah Jones:
Oh Muse….you know better than to think about Republicans without medication.
10:41

Janine Wallace:

10:41

Adalia Woodbury:

10:40

upnorthgirl:

10:40

Ray:

10:40

crystalwolf:
Jay…LOL!
10:40

Sarah Jones:
Jason, that was just wrong. You know Marcus doesn’t get hard unless…
10:40

Rmuse:
Sarah, I just studied and wrote about the GOP hostage demands for extending the payroll cut. Absolutely sent all the blood into my peabrain. Nearly stroked out.
10:40

Adalia Woodbury:
No, darn.
10:40

QueerjohnPA:

10:40

Comment From Jason Easley

Janine Wallace:
Sarah, the Repubs only hate none Christian heathens who happen to live in America
10:40

Brian McLain:
That would be the issue, upnorthgirl. Shame occupy wasn’t around for the Iowa State Fair. That would have been interesting
10:40

Sarah Jones:
DID YOU GUYS HAVE THE ADD FOR CHIA OBAMA?
10:39

Ray:
Romney $10K bet will be raised by a Tiffany’s ring
10:39

crystalwolf:
Damn…isn’t that illegal? is this not a public debate?
10:39

upnorthgirl:
good questiopn
10:39

Sarah Jones:
Why do the Republicans hate Americans?
10:39

Adalia Woodbury:
I had to see it to believe it.
10:39

Sarah Jones:
muttmutt- we are witnessing the demise of our country out of patriotism and in order to ensure historical accuracy…..

also, I needed a laugh.
10:39

crystalwolf:
She really wanted to say her hardship was Marcussssss!
10:39

upnorthgirl:
drake – private
10:38

Brian McLain:
OWS Des Moines has been warned they are not allowed on Drake University property and risk arrest if they take one step off the sidewalk onto the property
10:38

upnorthgirl:
I just heard michelle’s hardship – well, i didn';t get the barbie i wanted and i’ve benn damaged for life
10:38

Rmuse:
muttmutt. right, my friends and colleagues are proud of OWS and wonder what took so long. Still, they always ask WTF
10:38

Adalia Woodbury:
WTG Sarah!
10:38

Sarah Jones:
I work with clients from France and Canada and the first thing they ask me is “Are you guys for real with these Republicans?”
10:38

Janine Wallace:
Sarah you just linked the Republicans to the Devil in two degrees of separation — great job!!!
10:38

muttmutt:
WTF is wrong with us? WHY ARE WE WATCHING THIS???
10:37

crystalwolf:
Yes you are right Sarah 666
10:37

Sarah Jones:
999 is 666b upside down! The Beck chalkboard will continue after these messages!
10:37

Ray:
oh wait…wrong debate. Glad that is over
10:37

crystalwolf:
OMFG that would be so awesome Mic check~ OWS
10:37

Janine Wallace:
There’s 20 more minutes yet and I’m glad it’s 20 more minutes of regular time instead of 20 minutes in football time!
10:37

muttmutt:
Rmuse: Ditto. I can’t talk to colleagues in the UK or France without getting some serious heckling about our political system.
10:37

Ray:
999
10:36

Sarah Jones:
Come on OWS! MIC CHECK!
10:36

Adalia Woodbury:
The circus dogshem. are hiding. the clowns scare them.
10:36

Brian McLain:
Probably haven’t been allowed in. Hold on, let me check my sources.
10:36

Rmuse:
Sarah, my European friends are embarrassed for me when I talk to them. Seriously.
10:36

muttmutt:
Why hasn’t OWS Mic Checked these clowns yet?
10:36

upnorthgirl:
not quite, sarah. a lot can happen in seconds
10:36

Brian McLain:
So…when do they bring out the circus dogs? I love circus dogs. They’re so cute
10:36

Janine Wallace:
Exactly Wolf, but no Republican talks about those mandates from the Government
10:35

Sarah Jones:
The international embarrassment is almost over…..
10:35

crystalwolf:
Janine and also if you buy a car and it is financed you are forced to buy full coverage!
10:35

Adalia Woodbury:
lol! Actually, you’re right Ray.
10:35

Rmuse:
Oh good, Perry wants Congress to stay off the job. Wait, they’ve already done nothing. Won’t matter.
10:35

QueerjohnPA:
lol # borowitz! HA!
10:35

Brian McLain:
Lol…Don’t get me started on mortgages. Please.
10:35

upnorthgirl:
LOL, ray
10:35

Janine Wallace:
….sorry, mean people are forced to buy car insurance
10:35

Adalia Woodbury:
Part time congress will fix everything.
10:35

Sarah Jones:
But Perry relies on federal money…SHHHHH!
10:35

Ray:
Other countries care for their mentally ill. Making them debate on TV is just cruel. #Borowitz
10:34

Sarah Jones:
Perry: we don’t need no stinkin’ government!
10:34

crystalwolf:
yea lets just have a dem congress that will DO SOMETHING!
10:34

Janine Wallace:
Brian, people are forced to buy health insurance. If they have a mortgage they are forced to by home insurance
10:34

Brian McLain:
Sorry…fewer and fewer…the debate is killing my brain
10:34

Sarah Jones:
Yeah, I get it Brian, but they all make it sound like people are being forced to have healthcare and that narrative was designed by Luntz.
10:34

upnorthgirl:
audit any insurance co and you will find fraud
10:34

muttmutt:
AW: No, that the logic of LIBERTARIANISM. It’s the road to tyranny.
10:34

Brian McLain:
Especially with less and less companies offering health insurance as a benefit…not good
10:34

Adalia Woodbury:
Yes, Sarah. That’s the logic of Dr. Paul.
10:34

upnorthgirl:
states make decisions – ok. no health for you
10:34

Rmuse:
Yeah, and you’re state just sucks Perry.
10:33

Brian McLain:
Forcing people to BUY health insurance.
10:33

crystalwolf:
Or the poison pills
10:33

Sarah Jones:
FORCE Healthcare, Ron Paul? FORCING PEOPLE TO LIVE?
10:33

Rmuse:
Force. C’mon Paul. Give it up.
10:33

Brian McLain:
It wasn’t so bad when you could spend it on anything medical…now they’ve regulated it to make sure you lose that money at the end of the year
10:33

muttmutt:
The libertarian elf speaks!
10:33

Sarah Jones:
And we don’t need regulations because we should love the freedom to be poisoned by the profit loving corporations who don’t care if they poison us. Then you get screwed when you need healthcare from the poison in the water.
10:33

crystalwolf:
muttmutt b/c they know its a clown show, embarrassment…
10:33

upnorthgirl:
Extension of 401Ks
10:33

Janine Wallace:
preventative health care needs to start with the crap in the school lunches that are served to our children that are supposed to be our future
10:33

muttmutt:
HSAs do nothing to address the cost of healthcare.
10:33

Ray:
Mutt…because they are embarrassed
10:33

upnorthgirl:
so true on HSAs
10:32

Brian McLain:
HSAs are a bloody scam
10:32

Rmuse:
Yep, the GOP is trying to tie payroll tax extension to $8 billion in preventative medicine in ACA. Liars
10:32

upnorthgirl:
Ok, let them all die
10:32

muttmutt:
Why is it that only liberals and progressives seem interested in these debates? I certainly don’t see a lot of chatter on the RW blogs about these debates.
10:32

Adalia Woodbury:
Prevenative healthcare. Ok, that’s why frenchfires and pizza are vegetables.
10:32

Brian McLain:
Better than what we have in place now
10:32

Sarah Jones:
Brian, like universal health care?
10:32

upnorthgirl:
preventitive
10:32

Sarah Jones:
Good point, Janine…..we ignore that he took government to a screeching halt because he didn’t get a seat in airforce one. Please nominate Newt!
10:32

crystalwolf:
I just read that a woman was against Obamacare until she got breast cancer! Now she is trying to educate people
10:32

Adalia Woodbury:
Call me a skeptic, but how do health saving accounts solve anything?
10:31

Brian McLain:
Medical coverage for all without forcing another bill down peoples’ throat…that may be a bit nicer
10:31

Ray:
LOL sarah
10:31

upnorthgirl:
cough
10:31

Sarah Jones:
Ray, FACTS are not allowed!
10:31

Janine Wallace:
if he’s been working on health issues since 1974 then that’s not a ringing endorsement for getting things done… keep selling those books newt
10:31

Ray:
The heritage foundation thought it was Constitutional in the 1990s. Now it is unconstitutional
10:31

Brian McLain:
I would rather make the “force people to buy health insurance” argument. For Obama and Romney. Bad idea.
10:31

Rmuse:
Adalia, yeah, now he’s a 10ther. Tomorrow, who knows.
10:31

Sarah Jones:
Keep trying to sell repealing ObamaCares, Newt. Guess you haven’t seen the polls. Good luck with that.
10:30

upnorthgirl:
newt is a health issue
10:30

muttmutt:
You mean like pay taxes?
10:30

Rmuse:
Oh here we go, unconstitutional. Get off it Willard.
10:30

Adalia Woodbury:
Rnuse, he’s making a states rights argument.
10:30

Sarah Jones:
No, muttmutt.
10:30

crystalwolf:
My plan for my state obamacare -drink
10:30

upnorthgirl:
mitt has some choking going on
10:30

muttmutt:
Is there anyone on the stage who isn’t worth more than $1MM?
10:29

Sarah Jones:
Is it my TV or is MIttens getting MORE tan as we go along?
10:29

Rmuse:
Why does Romney like Massachusetts to have Health Care, but not the rest of the nation?
10:29

Ray:
Newt said he is not going to play nice in TPM
10:29

Adalia Woodbury:
muttmutt now their nuts and claiming poverty experience.
10:29

Sarah Jones:
Yes, muttmutt. They are still nuts.
10:29

Janine Wallace:
If Newt were elected he’d sell his books during his fireside chats
10:29

upnorthgirl:
yes, ray. there was a bit aof a 2-way debate
10:29

QueerjohnPA:
Newt had a few good jabs, actually.
10:29

Rmuse:
Geez, just look at these losers.
10:29

Sarah Jones:
Newt and Mittens had a brawl but Mitt did not grab him, so it was a win for MittFit in that regard. Newt won, though.
10:29

Brian McLain:
Newt had a really good shot at Mittens earlier…not much lately
10:28

Adalia Woodbury:
Newt’s multitasking. Selling books and debating.
10:28

upnorthgirl:
newt is selling – a cain thing
10:28

muttmutt:
Ok, back from walking the dog. Are they still nuts?
10:28

Ray:
Has Newt been aggressive toward Mitt?
10:28

Brian McLain:
I wonder if Newt told those family members to become janitors
10:28

senikau:
Mentioning his books again …Oh Newt
10:28

Sarah Jones:
Yes, this is the part in our program when we pull out our POOR LITTLE RICH BOY STORIES
10:28

Janine Wallace:
John — yes yes it is! now you’ve outed the boyfriend, ruh roh
10:28

Rmuse:

upnorthgirl:

Sarah Jones:

QueerjohnPA:

10:27

upnorthgirl:

10:27

Adalia Woodbury:
You’re right Janine. It doesn’t. Even less, when Michele speaks.
10:27

Janine Wallace:

Sarah Jones:

10:27

Janine Wallace:
Adalia, you are confused because it doesn’t make any sense…
10:26

Sarah Jones:

10:26

crystalwolf:
Crazy eyes…ugh
10:26

upnorthgirl:

10:26

Rmuse:

10:25

Sarah Jones:

Sarah Jones:

10:25

Rmuse:

10:25

QueerjohnPA:
Perry’s ready to roll
10:25

Sarah Jones:
Question is about when they were poor, answers are: GOD LOVES ME.
10:25

Brian McLain:
It was one of their selling points when they tried to convert me.
10:25

Rmuse:
Yep, middle class eliminated by the GOP.
10:25

Janine Wallace:

10:21

Rmuse:
Going near a tube, wish me luck.

10:21

crystalwolf:
Obama
10:21

Janine Wallace:
who thinks Perry is packin?
10:21

Adalia Woodbury:
Uh oh, hard question from Andrew in Texas.
10:20

Brian McLain:
So who’s winning the debate everyone? So far I’m thinking Obama
10:20

Sarah Jones:
That is the gist of it, Ray.
10:20

Adalia Woodbury:
You’re welcome crystalwolf
10:20

Ray:
Holy Christ
10:20

crystalwolf:
Wonder how DS keeps a straight face?
10:20

upnorthgirl:
the yahoo question?
10:20

Adalia Woodbury:
Hi Ray! Still another 45 minutes.
10:20

Ray:
UGH

10:20

crystalwolf:
Thanks Adalia
10:20

Comment From Ray
HEy everyone
10:20

Sarah Jones:
Hi ray! oh, no, you don’t get off that easy! it’s not over yet~
10:19

Adalia Woodbury:
crystalwolf, Christine ODonnell’s b/ certificate.
10:19

Janine Wallace:
North, no they did not show their birth certs and the Earther Movement has demanded them!
10:19

Comment From Ray
I missed the entire GOP debate
10:19

Comment From Ron Dobbs
Couldn’t take it. Now watching “That Metal Show” Unfortunately living in Alabama hear those talking points a bit too often
10:19

Comment From Guest
hey everyone
10:19

Adalia Woodbury:
This is good for me too. Our tv would be toast by now.
10:19

upnorthgirl:
did these follks show their birth certs?
10:19

Janine Wallace:
Adalia, it was on the internet so it must be real…
10:19

Sarah Jones:
Yes, both violate Geneva Convention but that is OK because we shouldn’t let other people tell us what to do here in the USA! USA! DRILL BABY DRILL!
10:19

crystalwolf:
whose birth cert?
10:19

Adalia Woodbury:
Hannity won’t do it, Sarah. He was never going to.
10:18

upnorthgirl:
agree with janine. this helps alot. otherwise i would kick the tv and my husband would discourage me from watching
10:18

Sarah Jones:
Still waiting for Hannity to be water boarded….
10:18

Adalia Woodbury:
But are you sure it’s real, Janine?
10:18

Brian McLain:
So both would violate the Geneva Convention.
10:18

crystalwolf:
If the stupid doesn’t torture you the water would!
10:18

Janine Wallace:
Adalia, I agree! and as the head of the Earther Movement, I can tell you why because I’ve seen her real birth cert
10:18

Adalia Woodbury:
Oh Brian, that’s a hard question.
10:18

crystalwolf:
Tie
10:17

Brian McLain:
GOP debate vs. Water boarding….which is worse?
10:17

Janine Wallace:
Sarah, at least my blood pressure hasn’t spiked. This live blog is helping with keeping my zen on
10:17

Adalia Woodbury:
Janine, there’s something about ODonnell that makes me laugh all the time.
10:17

Brian McLain:
Sure they can…Can they do so without mentioning God, Reagan, or Isreal? THAT would be a challenge.
10:17

upnorthgirl:
OMG – a lunesta ad – put you to sleep
10:16

Sarah Jones:
It’s not really torture to watch this even though it feels that way, Janine, because we are all suspects.
10:16

Adalia Woodbury:
It’s more clown show than horror movie tonight.
10:16

Janine Wallace:
Adalia, that’s a good one! laughing!
10:16

upnorthgirl:
can they keep talking fopr 45 mins?
10:15

Adalia Woodbury:
ODonnell is looking for her cauldron, Janine.
10:15

Janine Wallace:
not that i’m keeping track…but there are 45 minutes left to go…..
10:15

Sarah Jones:
Bring some zen with you Rmuse – this is ugly, though so far it pales in comparison to the foreign policy debates (aka: BOMB IRAN!)
10:14

Adalia Woodbury:
Hi Rmuse! Glad to you see you!
10:14

upnorthgirl:
i cant buy teh mercieds
10:14

Sarah Jones:
Hey Rmuse! welcome!
10:14

Janine Wallace:
North, that’ll be very ‘witchy’ of them…. Where’s O’Donnell when they need her?
10:14

upnorthgirl:
Like they know the middle class
10:14

Adalia Woodbury:
Right, blame Obama for Newt’s “Palestinians are invented people” comment.
10:14

Comment From Rmuse
Hey kids, I’m going to try and watch this. But in the interest of maintain by blood pressure level and sanity, I may not last long. Let me get near a television.
10:14

Sarah Jones:
Perry cowers in his bunker of Obama hate.
10:14

QueerjohnPA:
I’ve heard Perry knows a few things about leading from the rear.
10:13

upnorthgirl:
janine, they will get out Ouji boards and channel Ronald
10:13

Sarah Jones:
Perry keeps talking about the “rear” . Please, Ricky- keep it at home.
10:13

Sarah Jones:
Perry thinks this is a minor issue. He’s doubling down on Obama’s “muddled foreign policy” – Obama getting all of those terrorists was muddled?
10:12

QueerjohnPA:
Exactly, Sarah!
10:12

Janine Wallace:
you are right North (I mean correct) do you think God talked to Reagan and then will talk to one of the Repubs?
10:12

Adalia Woodbury:
Because you know what their motives are, Sarah.
10:12

Sarah Jones:
lol Brian
10:12

Sarah Jones:
why do i keep hearing END TIMES as they talk about Israel?
10:12

Brian McLain:
HOW DARE YOU MODERATE THE GREAT AND POWERFUL OZ, GEORGE!
10:12

upnorthgirl:
everybody wants a endorsement from Reagan
10:12

Adalia Woodbury:
Ricky chose gulags
10:11

Sarah Jones:
NEWT OR MITT, YOU CLOWNS!
10:11

Brian McLain:
Hmmm…and the Isrealis don’t teach hate against anyone?
10:11

Sarah Jones:
What COWARDS. No one will pick a side.
10:11

Sarah Jones:
MB did not answer the question. No big news there.
10:11

Adalia Woodbury:
Michele teaches her children hatred toward gays.
10:11

upnorthgirl:
they teach hatred? what is she talking about, ms hatred
10:11

Sarah Jones:
OMG she did not – she’s upset about teaching HATE?
10:11

crystalwolf:
crazy eyes doesn’t teach her kids hatred? Drink
10:10

QueerjohnPA:
Michelle shows off her Yiddish capabilities, again – and her love for socialism.
10:10

Brian McLain:
No sorries, I understand
10:10

Janine Wallace:
Michelle wins, she worked in Isreal
10:10

Sarah Jones:
Michele loves to talk about what she has seen and done.
10:10

Brian McLain:
So Newt is Reagan resurrected, and Michele is explaining essentially she’s more Christian then everyone else
10:10

upnorthgirl:
they all know the Israelis up front and personal
10:10

crystalwolf:
Oh ok sorry, it is hard to see who is asking who, sorry
10:10

Sarah Jones:
Bachmann avoiding who is right – Newt or Mitt?
10:10

senikau:
Kibotz kibotz kibotz
10:10

crystalwolf:
shot, Isreal, another shot
10:09

Brian McLain:
No, I was asking Jeanie how it doesn’t make sense. I agree with you to a degree on that matter, crystal
10:09

Sarah Jones:
Good point, Janine.
10:09

upnorthgirl:
yes
10:09

Janine Wallace:
if newt is a reaganite then he’ll raise taxes
10:09

upnorthgirl:
john – lol
10:09

Sarah Jones:
It’s not you, Adalia.
10:09

Sarah Jones:
Newt thinks he is Reagan now. SHOT.
10:09

Adalia Woodbury:
Is it me or does the Newt smirk look evil?
10:09

QueerjohnPA:
I’d like to see Newt in a print caftan and a pearl necklace.
10:09

Sarah Jones:
Romney says he will appease – oops, I mean ask first what he should do.
10:09

senikau:
Are they going to let anybody else talk????
10:09

upnorthgirl:
yes, but that puts Gingrich up.
10:09

crystalwolf:
What? Bri are you asking ME why supreme court is corrupt? Really google is your friend. Clarence Thomas
10:09

Janine Wallace:
because the Supremes are the highest court in the land, if you have State laws trumping Federal then the Supremes wouldn’t be hearing anything. only the State Supremes would
10:09

muttmutt:
Uncle
10:09

muttmutt:
Ok, I’ve had enough
10:08

Brian McLain:
Romeny is going down hard in this debate. It’s entertaining.
10:08

Sarah Jones:
Newt claims to be a historian again which reminds me that I read his recent book in which he claims Obama is a socialist commie. So, Newt is where truth goes to die.
10:08

upnorthgirl:
OMG – romeny voice is cracking
10:08

Brian McLain:
How so?
10:08

Adalia Woodbury:
Newt speaking as a historian. Oh, he has a man crush on Netenyahu.
10:08

crystalwolf:
supreme court is corrupt.
10:08

senikau:
As a HISTORIAN – Ha ha ha ha ha
10:08

Janine Wallace:
Brian, that argument doesn’t make sense.
10:07

Sarah Jones:
Romney tells Newt that we should not speak for Israel. Ouch.
10:07

upnorthgirl:
back to the 2-way debate. all others standing back to watch
10:07

muttmutt:
Palestine is on Maps from the 1800s
10:07

muttmutt:
Newt, that’s bull
10:07

Sarah Jones:
Where is RMuse?
10:07

Brian McLain:
And abortion would be legal in others? Eh so be it. Better than a risk of the wrong people getting into the supreme court and getting rid of it completely in the country
10:07

Sarah Jones:
Obama is to blame for Israel’s troubles according to Newt.
10:07

crystalwolf:
Newt take your low T meds now!
10:07

muttmutt:
I’m not ISRAELI, I don’t want to BE ISRAELI, I don’t give a damn about ISRAEL.
10:06

upnorthgirl:
BRian – I left MO – for many reasons
10:06

Janine Wallace:
Brian, that would be backwards, each state makes their own laws and then those laws would trump Federal. each state’s laws are sometimes in conflict with a sister state.. that is fraught with trouble.
10:06

muttmutt:
Can I just say SCREW ISRAEL?
10:06

Sarah Jones:
Romney says if we disagree with Israel we should do it privately.
10:06

senikau:
LOL Brian
10:06

crystalwolf:
Bri yes that is true and abortion would be illegal in all the red stats? Balance? Balance…
10:06

Adalia Woodbury:
You’re welcome, Sarah.
10:06

QueerjohnPA:
Remember Guadalupe!
10:06

Brian McLain:
Plus, kinda like the idea that if I don’t like what Iowa’s doing, I can move 50 miles south to Missouri and live there instead…oh God what am I saying, Missouri?!
10:06

Sarah Jones:
Oh, right. Thanks Adalia.
10:06

upnorthgirl:
john – tx got rid of text books to save $$
10:06

Adalia Woodbury:
Sarah, he meant enough lying except for himself.
10:06

Sarah Jones:
John, also too the Texasns are made up people.
10:05

Brian McLain:
I do disagree, Janine. For instance if we had state law over fed law, likely many states would have legalized marijuana by now
10:05

crystalwolf:
The speaker? who is that Pelosi? Boner?
10:05

upnorthgirl:
romney fail again
10:05

QueerjohnPA:
Doesn’t Texas have those textbooks, too?
10:05

Sarah Jones:
Newt “Enough lying about the middle east!” apparently he did not get his own memo.
10:05

crystalwolf:
Zionest hate us and laugh that we give them $$
10:05

senikau:
shot – fundamentally
10:05

Brian McLain:
To some extent. But it’s been over extended.
10:05

Janine Wallace:
Brian, Federal law should always trump State law otherwise there is chaos
10:04

Sarah Jones:
Newt doubling down on invented people in defense of Israel his way. I do not think he is helping Israel with this.
10:04

crystalwolf:
They hate us
10:04

crystalwolf:
israel?
10:04

Sarah Jones:
No they moved on to Newt’s “palistinians are invented people” comment
10:04

crystalwolf:
Bri, what have Feds at all? We could be like Alassska sarah palin rules? That why Fed Trumps state, duh
10:04

upnorthgirl:
Brian, isn’t that a thing that came out of civil war
10:03

muttmutt:
Brian: That’s why we have judges to make those determinations.
10:03

Janine Wallace:
why the middle east all of a sudden Paul? isn’t the question about our borders?
10:03

Adalia Woodbury:
Ron Paul out historians the historian.
10:03

Sarah Jones:
Paul says Newt is stirring up trouble with invented people.
10:03

Brian McLain:
Federal law should not really trump state law except in certain situations.
10:03

crystalwolf:
FEDS! Trump oops!
10:03

Sarah Jones:
here we go, Newt. Invented people!
10:02

upnorthgirl:
and a buddhist, muslim, atheist, pantheist, etc
10:02

crystalwolf:
FEDS! Trump oops!
10:02

muttmutt:
Rick hit a bad sector on his hard drive.
10:02

Sarah Jones:
Separation between what, upnorthgirl? This here is a Christian nation!
10:02

Janine Wallace:
rick doesn’t understand Federal laws trump state…. oops I said trump, must have donald on the brain
10:02

Brian McLain:
Oops. Rick had a short circuit.
10:02

upnorthgirl:
catch and release – like a bunch of trout
10:02

Ron Dobbs:
So the foreign executives won’t keep getting arrested. Ours is worse than Arizona
10:02

Adalia Woodbury:
Didn’t Perry just endorse papers please laws?
10:01

upnorthgirl:
please, sarah, separation between church and state
10:01

crystalwolf:
Hey rick what about the porn laws?
10:01

Sarah Jones:
Or, if you’re a Republican, just change the law without congress. Judicial activism babies!
10:01

crystalwolf:
secure the border, drink
10:01

Sarah Jones:
If you can’t argue the law, argue God.
10:01

upnorthgirl:
i think a lot of our relatives would not be able to get into the country today
10:01

Ron Dobbs:
They’re going to Revise the law here
10:01

crystalwolf:
Send Michelle malkin back——————->
10:01

Sarah Jones:
Romney wants to bring people here who have skills because we have so many jobs that he will ship overseas!
10:00

QueerjohnPA:
Ask Alabama how that ‘ship them all out’ works out!
10:00

crystalwolf:
Janine, yes sorry
10:00

upnorthgirl:
let’s put ankle bracelets on them
10:00

Sarah Jones:
We are missing The Herman Cain and his death wishes.
10:00

muttmutt:
Crystalwolf: Michelle Malkin is an anchor…
9:59

QueerjohnPA:
This is the part where Herman will be missed – no electrocution mentioned tonight.
9:59

crystalwolf:
Michelle malkin is a anchor baby!
9:59

Sarah Jones:
Ship them all out except the ones working for these Republican candidates for 2 dollars a week. The win here is that then the rest of the American work force will work for free and shut up about their rights.
9:59

Janine Wallace:
Wolf, don’t you mean their native planets?
9:59

upnorthgirl:
i think we should ship the gop of the country
9:59

Brian McLain:
Anybody else find it interesting that we are more than willing to “help” oppressed people in other countries, but Mexico is just fine and we should leave them alone
9:59

muttmutt:
None of them indicate what we would do if the other country refuses to accept them… Internment camps?
9:59

crystalwolf:
Will
9:59

crystalwolf:
We all the gop go home to their native countries?
9:59

Janine Wallace:
Sarah, compassion is not a conservative meme
9:58

upnorthgirl:
round them up, and ship them out
9:58

Adalia Woodbury:
Yes, off with their heads!
9:58

Sarah Jones:
Not amnesty because we can’t have compassion
9:58

Brian McLain:
Um…no. I’m allergic to tyrants
9:58

Sarah Jones:
Yes, Brian, just LIKE that
9:58

crystalwolf:
GOPS been working on Salen revisit for quite some time….
9:58

upnorthgirl:
i know alot of folks here in the sciences who might fall under this
9:58

Sarah Jones:
Yes, it appears there will be a religious test not just for office, but for citizenship because nothing says American like a religious test!
9:58

muttmutt:
Brian: Wow, good one. May I call you Robspierre?
9:58

Brian McLain:
Off with their heads!
9:57

Brian McLain:
Citizen review board….like the public safety board in Revolutionary France?
9:57

Adalia Woodbury:
Salem revisited. Yikes!
9:57

upnorthgirl:
deport all of them
9:57

Janine Wallace:
Well if the illegals believe in God, why can’t they stay?
9:57

Sarah Jones:
Newt: It’s ok to be here illegally if you go to church.
9:57

crystalwolf:
Yes Salem, I remember that! shudder!
9:56

Sarah Jones:
OUCH Janine!:-)
9:56

upnorthgirl:
witches
9:56

Brian McLain:
How about guarantee fair wages to all based on your craft. That would stop illegal immigration AND keep them from being exploited as badly as they are when they are up here
9:56

Janine Wallace:
citizen review boards… didn’t they do that in Salem quite some time ago
9:56

muttmutt:
Senikau: ILLEGAL ALIENS you mean.
9:56

crystalwolf:
Or a sound gun?
9:56

Sarah Jones:
Secure the borders and why didn’t Diane say “illegals” – didn’t she get the memo?
9:56

Adalia Woodbury:
borders=red meat for the base.
9:56

senikau:
Undocumented Immigrants – game on
9:56

upnorthgirl:
can we put an electrified fence around the stage
9:56

crystalwolf:
Yea for sure…
9:56

Adalia Woodbury:
grandfather points. The thought of Newt as anyone’s grandfather is scary.
9:55

upnorthgirl:
secure the borders
9:55

Sarah Jones:
Grandfather of Gridlock, Newt Gingrich
9:55

Brian McLain:
Stop sucking up to Iowa….they hate suck ups and you ARE talking to the WHOLE nation you know
9:55

Sarah Jones:
Newt is still shocked that his – OH, drink, he says God forgave him! – book tour has led to this!
9:55

muttmutt:
Calista is SUCH a Stepford Wife
9:55

crystalwolf:
grandfather=palinpoints
9:55

Brian McLain:
There we go, God forgave Newt…so should you
9:55

crystalwolf:
god drink
9:55

upnorthgirl:
yeah- the colbert debate
9:54

Adalia Woodbury:
She forgot the s word: submission.
9:54

Sarah Jones:
She’s happy to talk about corn dogs
9:54

crystalwolf:
corndog
9:54

Ron Dobbs:
I’d watch the Stephen Colbert Debate on animal planet though
9:54

Sarah Jones:
MB doubling down on her Christianity
9:54

senikau:
Marcussssss
9:54

upnorthgirl:
because he’s gay
9:54

Brian McLain:
Huh? No people in Iowa, from what I know, is what exactly is your brain made of, sawdust?
9:54

muttmutt:
That was one scary looking crowd shot.
9:54

Adalia Woodbury:
Ouch Marcus looked like he was in pain.
9:54

upnorthgirl:
what’s your core
9:53

Sarah Jones:
Federalist papers. as if.
9:53

muttmutt:
The Newtmentum is slowing with this question….
9:53

Sarah Jones:
Founders is always a shot!
9:53

upnorthgirl:
another reason for birth control –
9:53

crystalwolf:
The founders drink
9:53

Brian McLain:
Founders…is that a shot?
9:53

Sarah Jones:
Hi Ron Dobbs- that was a hi to you earlier but I realize it might have appeared I was telling Ron Paul he was smart….
9:53

upnorthgirl:
sso ture, Brian
9:53

Sarah Jones:
Porn is a family value~!
9:52

Brian McLain:
3 Fs for most of them were World History, Civics, and Ethics
9:52

crystalwolf:
And porn
9:52

upnorthgirl:
the 3 Fs – family, faith and finance
9:52

QueerjohnPA:
..and women wouldn’t have a right to choose – Ron Paul
9:52

Sarah Jones:
Ron Paul bringing up that the issue of marital fidelity is BS. Good on him. much applause.
9:52

Adalia Woodbury:
Can;t blame you Ron.
9:52

Brian McLain:
Considering the question, crystal…I think that’s a good thing
9:52

muttmutt:
Sound Money is a dog whistle for the gold standard. Crazy elf!
9:52

upnorthgirl:
ron wins this one
9:52

crystalwolf:
Ron is going off the rails
9:52

Sarah Jones:
Ron you are doing the smart thing
9:51

muttmutt:
Newt: UNCOMFORTABLE….
9:51

Comment From Ron Dobbs
Just can’t watch that Debate
9:51

Brian McLain:
Ron is kinda calling BS on the question
9:51

Comment From Ron Dobbs
Just can’t watch that thing
9:51

crystalwolf:
Perry and Porn lets see that come out ,yea
9:51

Sarah Jones:
That’s rght Senikau, thanks for the reminder.
9:51

Adalia Woodbury:
Newt speaking aboutr character rofl!
9:51

Sarah Jones:
I’ll NOT take that bet Brian. I did the story on Perry’s porn investment and in researching it, I found a lot of other stuff…that I didn’t report because it was unsubstantiated but quite loud.
9:50

crystalwolf:
That would be nice re: Perry or what about a male intern?
9:50

Adalia Woodbury:
You said it upnorthgril.
9:50

upnorthgirl:
birth control
9:50

senikau:

crystalwolf:

9:50

muttmutt:
Life is so SIMPLE for these SIMPLETONS
9:50

Sarah Jones:
Yes but it’s all they have to take Newt out since the GOP doesn’t care about him being the God of Gridlock
9:50

Brian McLain:
$10 says Perry is outted as sleeping with a mistress for the past couple of years sometime in the next couple of weeks
9:49

Sarah Jones:
Newt is prepared to talk about how God forgave him.
9:49

Adalia Woodbury:
Ooooh, slam at newt from Rick Perry!
9:49

upnorthgirl:
no kidding
9:49

muttmutt:
It’s a BS issue
9:49

muttmutt:
This is a BS question.
9:49

upnorthgirl:
serial cheater
9:49

Sarah Jones:
OOOPS I mean PErry
9:49

senikau:
What did Perry just say…huh?
9:49

upnorthgirl:
oooo
9:49

Brian McLain:
Well, Newt is going to bow out of this one.
9:48

Sarah Jones:
oh dear marital fidelity Romney says it is all he has so it better matter
9:48

Adalia Woodbury:
marital fidelity. Ouch for Newt
9:48

Sarah Jones:
ha Brian
9:48

upnorthgirl:
fidelity
9:48

Adalia Woodbury:
I hear you, crystalwolf
9:48

upnorthgirl:
I agree, sarah, the more theys fools talk, the more things look up in 2012
9:48

senikau:
We are back
9:47

Brian McLain:
Well…maybe can could be elected a Republican president then.
9:47

QueerjohnPA:
great porn name, though!
9:47

Sarah Jones:
I’m finding reasons to live….
9:47

Adalia Woodbury:
Ahh, thanks John!
9:47

Sarah Jones:
OH thanks John!
9:47

Sarah Jones:
Any bets on what they were booing?
9:47

QueerjohnPA:
the booing was a repeat/recap from Newt’s dig.
9:47

crystalwolf:
Adaila, yea on that, I trust my dog more than these clowns!
9:47

Brian McLain:
You’re dog is named Lucky Boots? That’s not a very electable name.
9:46

Brian McLain:
Somebody said something that wasn’t televised….and we missed it
9:46

Adalia Woodbury:
Yes, I trust my dog way more than any of these clowsn. Lucky Boots for president?
9:46

upnorthgirl:
because he was gay
9:46

crystalwolf:
Let states craft their own solutions… yea like the HPV vaccine?
9:38

muttmutt:
The right course for America is to allow the private insurance industry divide and conquor the citizens. Nice plan, Romney.
9:38

Sarah Jones:
If they touch at the end, Michele will freak out!
9:38

Brian McLain:
No, upnorthgirl, bro hug. Have to give the handshake and pat on the back.

upnorthgirl:

9:37

upnorthgirl:

9:37

Sarah Jones:
Perry’s applause line fell flat and it is a repeat. Is he a Ken Doll with a string in his belly and he can only say one thing?
9:37

muttmutt:
Will they touch?
9:37

Brian McLain:
Wonder if anybody is going to bring up to Perry how he was a huge campaign stumper for Gore in the day.

9:36

Brian McLain:
Oh no. I would love to have a Republic back. Again, equal playing field. We live in a system now where money counts as speech. Very Animal Farm like

muttmutt:
Brian: I wish it WERE a democracy, then we wouldn’t have to deal with this crap. Athenian Democracy anyone???
9:35

Sarah Jones:
What have we learned so far? Republicans, trying to differentiate themselves among each other, take aim at Obama. DOH.
9:35

Brian McLain:
I hate that. We aren’t in a Democracy! It’s a Republic, moron!
9:35

upnorthgirl:
in democracy i don’t have to vote for any of these fools
9:35

muttmutt:
What kills me is that none of the ABC braintrust are asking “if you repeal the Affordable Care Act” what will you replace it with?
9:35

Adalia Woodbury:
Brian, I think you’re right.
9:34

Sarah Jones:
Mitt is trying to hold back his temper…..buckle up babies!
9:34

Brian McLain:

9:33

upnorthgirl:

Adalia Woodbury:
Rick’s stunned. Admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery.
9:33

Brian McLain:
Rick Perry makes the baby Jesus cry
9:33

muttmutt:
It’s like these guys don’t know that HDTV exists. This makeup is very analog in a digital world.
9:33

Sarah Jones:
Or ask Perry if Iran is the same as Iraq? The American people need to know!
9:33

upnorthgirl:
I see lines running in the fake tans
9:33

Sarah Jones:

9:31

Sarah Jones:
Newt talking down to Michele (thinking: I was never married to you, was I?)
9:31

muttmutt:
The real problem with this whole situation for these clowns is that Obama is a better Republican than any of them. Except for that whole “he’s black” part…
9:30

upnorthgirl:

9:28

Sarah Jones:
Yes, upnorth – I’m not voting for him, but at least he can talk to people without getting nasty.
9:28

muttmutt:
SJ: No, let’s hope he DOES. Can’t we get this to turn into a UFC cage match? I’ve got 100 quatloos on Bachmann. She’s tough…
9:28

upnorthgirl:
Popcorn or potato chips

Sarah Jones:
Newt getting red – prepare yourself for his temper and the crazy things he says when he gets mad!
9:27

Adalia Woodbury:
It’s called lobbying, Newt.
9:27

upnorthgirl:
i don’t care much for Ron, but he does act like an “old-style” politiican
9:27

Sarah Jones:
Let’s just hope that Romney doesn’t grab anyone tonight.
9:27

muttmutt:
Being consistently WRONG about how economics work is not a plus, Ron Paul.
9:27

Adalia Woodbury:
Ding! Ding! Ding! Newt’s down for the count!
9:27

muttmutt:
Yes, Ron Paul, you’ve been an insane austrian elf for decades.
9:27

Brian McLain:
Not quite, muttmutt. Good hit, but Newt’s been better with his zingers.
9:27

Sarah Jones:
Paul has a nice way of debating. He is strong without being a jerk. oh, nice finish by Paul.
9:26

upnorthgirl:
Ouch

muttmutt:
ZING! POW! ZAP! Ron Paul kicks Newt’s teeth down his throat.
9:26

upnorthgirl:

WHY does Ron think Newt is a hypocrite? Probably because he was alive in the 90’s.
9:26

upnorthgirl:
Yes, have those desires
9:26

Adalia Woodbury:
Paul goes after Newt! Popcorn anyone?
9:26

Brian McLain:
We have some instigation. Fight, fight fight!
9:26

Sarah Jones:
Mitt – standing up for child labor laws. oh no, he is trying to attract the few sane people. that won’t go well.
9:25

Brian McLain:
Obama’s been no real help to the middle class honestly….but again, spread the blame out, none of these blowhards have been no help either
9:25

senikau:
no it’s not abnormal muttmutt
9:25

Adalia Woodbury:
It’s normal muttmutt
9:25

upnorthgirl:
Mitt needs to discuss with his strategists – private sector stuff
9:25

muttmutt:
Is a desire to punch Newt’s fat face abnormal? I mean, is it just me?
9:25

Sarah Jones:
Romney had a line the audience applauded for. This is a big day for him.
9:25

Sarah Jones:
Yes, 2 way debate- the two front-runners trying to take each other out
9:25

Janine Wallace:
obama has trounced the middle class, according the mitt…. geez
9:25

senikau:

9:25

Brian McLain:
I think Mitt is close to having a stroke
9:24

Adalia Woodbury:
Newt’s salivating.
9:24

Sarah Jones:
He doesn’t do this well. It’s police Mitt or MittFit.
9:24

upnorthgirl:

9:24

upnorthgirl:
yank the mic from newt
9:24

Sarah Jones:
Mitt is licking his upper lip sweat
9:24

Adalia Woodbury:
Jobs, for adults, Newt.
9:24

muttmutt:
That resonates with people who think poor people are poor by choice and don’t work hard.
9:24

Brian McLain:
Yup. Bring back the grease monkeys! This is sad
9:24

Janine Wallace:
do his white grandchildren get to work as well?
9:24

Sarah Jones:
He thinks poor kids don’t have to work but middle class kids do?
9:24

senikau:

9:23

Sarah Jones:
Kids working again! oh noes, Newtie.

9:23

muttmutt:
He’s doubling-down on the child labor
9:23

Sarah Jones:
Newt has no spray tan and yet he is winning. What gives? i thought this was all about exteriors!
9:23

Adalia Woodbury:
Here comes the poor children don’t have a work ethic shot
9:23

upnorthgirl:

upnorthgirl:
OMG – I hate that I worked in the pvt sector crap
9:21

Sarah Jones:
Mitt is dying. I guess that happens when you lie
9:21

Brian McLain:
Merit based is fine if we have an equal playing field
9:21

muttmutt:
SJ: Nixon in 1960? Uh oh, Romney!
9:21

Adalia Woodbury:
merit and the current system, which favors the 1% is mutally exclusive.
9:21

Sarah Jones:
Romney is starting to sweat. that is so unattracitve. he believes in merit based society, which all started when he went to Cranbrook and lived among those who take their own jets to Switzerland for the weekend!
9:21

muttmutt:
Will one of the ABC Braintrust talk about inequality? Then we can learn how it’s an illusion…
9:21

Janine Wallace:
Mitt’s floundering
9:21

upnorthgirl:

Sarah Jones:
Yes, bush was a Democrat when he became unpopular….before that he was a Republican.
9:20

QueerjohnPA:
Dem plan won’t take away from SS b/c money will come from taxing the 1%!
9:19

Adalia Woodbury:
Consistent conservative candidate and electable. Aren’t those things mutually exclusive?
9:19

Sarah Jones:
Exactly Brian
9:19

muttmutt:
Except that Bush killed Bin Laden, right? Was he a republican when he did that, or a dem? I can’t keep it straight.
9:19

upnorthgirl:
there is some reasons why I can handle carzy Ron — move the
9:19

Janine Wallace:
Gingrich and the tea party are sitting in a tree
9:19

Sarah Jones:

9:19

Brian McLain:
Ron said something bad about overseas intervention and wars. QUICK CUT HIM OFF!
9:19

muttmutt:
SJ: I keep FORGETTING that Bush was a Dem… My bad…

9:18

Brian McLain:
They all are stealing for Social Security.
9:18

Janine Wallace:
Good point Sarah and Brian, they don’t have a comprehensive plan, just talking points
9:18

muttmutt:
I wonder if one of the ABC braintrust will ask about MF Global? Let them explain how deregulation is so awesome…
9:18

Sarah Jones:
No frothy, Obama is not stealing from SS. and SS is not at risk unless one of YOU get elected
9:18

Brian McLain:
And those lower interest rates? Hello inflation
9:18

upnorthgirl:
more tax cuts
9:18

Sarah Jones:
THey just keep lowering interest rates to make up for their con games
9:17

Brian McLain:
Okay, yes. I’m not thrilled about Obama, but they seem to forget all the crap Dubya put this country through to help it along to this point.
9:17

muttmutt:
Maybe on of these dim bulbs can explain why interest rates are at 1% and we can’t print T-Bills fast enough?
9:17

Sarah Jones:
His father was the governor of MI and Romney grew up very privileged what does he know? Golf grip jab at Obama coming from Romney? GAG ME

9:16

Adalia Woodbury:

The height of hypocrisy is Gingrich saying Obama’s plan is class warfare
9:05

Sarah Jones:
Higher taxes for Obama plan? you mean, THE OBAMA PLAN HAS LESS TAXES FOR MIDDLE CLASS you liar Newt
9:05

crystalwolf:
Newt needs some low t meds “taxes, taxes, taxes”
9:05

muttmutt:
Class warfare! DO A SHOT!

Brian McLain:

9:05

Sarah Jones:
“distinguishing idea” re jobs? HMMMM
9:04

Adalia Woodbury:
Jobs for adults!
9:04

muttmutt:
Not a single “job creator” on the stage.
9:04

Sarah Jones:
JOBS? with this bunch?
9:04

Sarah Jones:
Janine, they are all about fairness on the ABC!
9:04

Adalia Woodbury:
They chose green! Oh no!

Brian McLain:
What exactly are we saluting? Their dedication to selling their books?
9:04

muttmutt:
Wait, aren’t they going to say the pledge of allegiance? Why do they hate america?
9:04

crystalwolf:
Saluting them?
9:04

Sarah Jones:
Color is not a Family Value, Muttmutt
9:04

Janine Wallace:
‘we salute you’ geez… and this from ABC, who on Friday called Obama a failed President over and over again
9:03

muttmutt:
Without Cain on the stage, quite a plain vanilla group.
9:03

Sarah Jones:
We’re saluting them now? I quit.
9:03

Adalia Woodbury:
Hi John! Love your #

Comment From Jason Easley
I understand flip-flopping it’s in my wheelhouse.
9:01

Sarah Jones:
Yes, his wheelhouse is super big.
9:01

Brian McLain:
I haven’t no. I’ve been a bit more in the dark about politics as of late then I had in the past.
9:01

muttmutt:
And it’s not going to be you, Frothy Mixture
9:01

crystalwolf:
Brian have you heard about 12:12 West coast?
9:01

muttmutt:
The economy is in Romney’s “wheelhouse”? Interesting….
9:01

Sarah Jones:
OHHH Brian! I hope they do.
9:00

Brian McLain:
Actually more wanting to see if any of my friends in Occupy Des Moines Mic Checks anyone.
9:00

Sarah Jones:
Well, Brian, this year has been crazy. “Free bananas!”
9:00

Adalia Woodbury:
Or applaud putting children to work as janitors.
9:00

crystalwolf:
On they better not we will spread that all over twitter verse if they do!
9:00

upnorthgirl:
Or boo the gay servicemen
9:00

Adalia Woodbury:
I’m scared too, Sarah. I’m wondering what the hate message for tonight will be.
9:00

Brian McLain:
I’m far from a GOP debate virgin. Actually quite unlike me to miss any debates, but it’s just been…well…I have no words to express my disgust with the majority of the lot.
9:00

Sarah Jones:
“Tough questions?” that will be a first.
8:59

crystalwolf:
awwww, its just a clown show…sarah!
8:59

muttmutt:
Just remember the words of Col. Kurtz… “the horror… the horror…”
8:59

Sarah Jones:
If they clap for death again I will be super disappointed.
8:59

Sarah Jones:
I’m scared.
8:59

muttmutt:
Ok, got the FACEPALM working

Sarah Jones:
You GOP debate virgins need to buckle up!
8:59

Adalia Woodbury:

8:58

Comment From senikau
Ditto for me Brian
8:58

Sarah Jones:
I am going to try to keep up with the comments here – if I get behind just yell. It probably means I’m hiding my head from the shame of it all.
8:58

muttmutt:
Starting my engine… rumble rumble sputter gasp wheeze sputter sputter gasp cough gasp sputter rumble
8:58

Adalia Woodbury:
Nice to see you Seikau
8:58

Brian McLain:
First Republican debate I’ve actually brought myself to watch…I kept hearing I was missing a lot of entertainment so I figured this one would be perfect to give a try
8:58

crystalwolf:
Hi Adalia

Adalia Woodbury:
Hi crystalwolf!
8:58

Sarah Jones:
Hi Senikau:-)

crystalwolf:
Hi
8:57

Comment From senikau
Hiiiiii – excited to join you guys for the debate
8:57

Sarah Jones:
we might make it through this thing.
8:57

crystalwolf:
Start your engines….
8:57

Adalia Woodbury:
vrooom!
8:57

Janine Wallace:
Sarah, I’m going out on a limb and projecting that the candidates will be puppeting the latest propaganda
8:57

Sarah Jones:
Get your clown car engines started
8:57

Adalia Woodbury:
Hi Sara! Hey Janine!
8:56

Sarah Jones:
muttmutt you are so right. I share your concerns – this party has turned into a religion.
8:56

muttmutt:
T-minus 4 minutes and counting. Clowns… stand by….
8:56

Sarah Jones:
Our task tonight will be determining whether or not these candidates believe what they’re saying or they’re just puppeting the latest propaganda. Luckily, we are joined by our fantastic editor Janine Wallace, and PoliticusUSA contributor Adalia Woodbury, who wrote a must-read piece on Elizabeth Warren yesterday.

8:56

Sarah Jones:
Hi Adalia! here come the clowns.
8:56

crystalwolf:
Hi
8:56

muttmutt:
I thought a two party system was unhealthy, but a 1 party system with the Dems as the 1 party??? How is that healthy for our Republic?
8:56

Janine Wallace:
hey Maria and Crystalwolf and muttmutt… this will be fun
8:55

crystalwolf:
You are right muttmutt its a crime!
8:55

Comment From Adalia Woodbury
Hello Everyone! Are we ready for the circus?
8:55

Comment From upnorthgirl
Please, Perry has memory issues
8:55

Janine Wallace:
Sarah, yes they will certainly be voting on the 12th… that’s the Perrians
8:55

muttmutt:
All kidding aside, I cannot remember a time when the GOP was this illiterate, uneducated and just downright ignorant of American institutions. I cannot believe that anyone, conservative, moderate or even wingnutty can take this crowd of complete morons seriously. Is this REALLY what the GOP has become?
8:55

Janine Wallace:
Join in Brian, hello
8:55

Sarah Jones:
Hi Brian:-)
8:55

Comment From Brian McLain
Evening, folks. Mind if I join the conversation?
8:54

Sarah Jones:
Perry doesn’t know what he doesn’t know and neither do his fans, so maybe this is a non-issue. No matter, they will all be voting on the 12th anyway.
8:54

Sarah Jones:
CW you are probably right. Hi Janine! Oh dear…..
8:54

Janine Wallace:
Sarah, Perry won’t know his own name
8:54

crystalwolf:
He prolly didn’t mix it up unfortunately…
8:54

Comment From Guest
Dpm
8:53

crystalwolf:
Yes that’s the one!
8:53

Sarah Jones:
Perry may not know where he is tonight, since he thought he was in the New Hampshire caucuses recently (he is in the primaries). Then he pulled a Palin and mixed up Iran and Iraq. Whatev, right? Bomb, bomb bomb Iran.
8:53

Sarah Jones:
Oh, fifth one: Church of $$$$$$$$$$$
8:53

Sarah Jones:
BINGO! Church of ME!
8:53

Sarah Jones:
The fifth branch! what is it again? darn it all.
8:52

muttmutt:
Legislative, Executive, Judicial and Church… Right?
8:52

Sarah Jones:
Yes, well there’s that one branch – you know, the one we don’t need…
8:52

Sarah Jones:
I kid you not. Montemayor, step forward and be briefed by the Chosen One!
8:52

muttmutt:
Oh my… 8 supreme court judges and the 4 branches of government?
8:52

crystalwolf:
oh geeze… what a clown
8:52

crystalwolf:
well all of them except Ron
8:51

Sarah Jones:
“Montemayor?” he said, struggling to name one of the nine Supreme Court justices. He went on to blast the court as “eight unelected and frankly unaccountable judges. ”

I pause for levity.
8:51

Sarah Jones:
K, did y’all hear about Perry?

Perry is running fourth in Iowa . He’s got to show that he can handle a debate without making a clown of himself. What do I mean? Well, Perry, taking a break from his fight against Obama’s war on religion, gave an interview in Iowa in which he said there were 8 Supreme Court justices and called Sonia Sotomayor “Montemayor.”
8:51

crystalwolf:
Yes I bet it will!
8:50

Sarah Jones:
FITTING, muttmutt.
8:50

muttmutt:
‘The horror… the horror…”
8:50

muttmutt:
I think I’ll turn the sound down and listen to the soundtrack from Apocalypse Now!, the one with the dialog. I’ll bet it’ll fit.
8:50

Sarah Jones:
Paul, Mitt and Newt walked into a bar…..
8:50

Sarah Jones:
Brace yourself for this one: Ron Paul is performing well in Iowa and is considered a top tier candidate. Paul has gone after Gingrich as a hypocrite and exaggerator in Iowa, only endearing more people to Paul.
8:50

crystalwolf:
I will
8:49

crystalwolf:
HaHa
8:49

Sarah Jones:
Crystalwolf, that is SO unfair! Send good thoughts my way.
8:49

muttmutt:
Crystalwolf: COWARD!
8:49

Sarah Jones:
Brokeback Clowns….Yes. I think I like you.
8:49

crystalwolf:
I am listening to soothing music so depend on you Sarah to report the facts! lol
8:49

muttmutt:
Brokeback Candidates?
8:49

Sarah Jones:
Newt’s got trouble of his own making with his comments to a Jewish channel during which he called the Palestinians an “invented people” and called the middle east peace process “delusional”. We’ll see how that plays to this audience if he’s even asked about it.
8:48

Sarah Jones:
And if he does, what does that say about him?
8:48

Sarah Jones:
I wonder if Romney will grip Newt tonight in a fit. Muttmutt – you read my mind!
8:48

muttmutt:
The real question is… Will Romney touch Perry…
8:47

Sarah Jones:
Yeah, exactly:-)

Romney hasn’t had to attack anyone during a debate prior to this one, and we all know about MittFits, so be on the look out for his strategy here. Can he hold on to his cool while still staying in his comfort zone of polite debate?
8:47

crystalwolf:
#ClownShow
8:47

muttmutt:
SJ: Same difference.
8:47

Sarah Jones:
#IowaDebate which I did not use when I tweeted this out….I thought it was #clownshow.
8:46

crystalwolf:
nozzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz/
8:46

muttmutt:
Anyone know what the official twitter hashtag is?
8:46

Sarah Jones:
Oh noes, Muttmutt. We will be goners for sure! Did you all hear about Perry?
8:45

muttmutt:
Every time Newt gets a simple piece of history wrong, do a shot.
8:45

Sarah Jones:
The inner-party fighting has kicked off.

Embracing his inner attack dog for the first time this go-around, Romney also released an add “Friends like Newt” attacking Newt for daring to be against the Ryan Plan, while claiming he himself (Romney) wanted to protect Social Security and Medicare. Romney leaves out that you can’t protect something you privatize which is one of the reasons why have a government…..
8:45

Sarah Jones:
Obamacare will work too….
8:44

Sarah Jones:
They have no theme for tonight. It’s going to be a cluster—-.
8:44

crystalwolf:
socialist? Obamacare? What is this one about anyway?
8:44

Sarah Jones:
GOD Is a great drinking word! Oh, boy….y’all are gonna be drunk tonight.
8:43

Sarah Jones:
I’d pay money to hear Perry do it in the woods with Tinky Winky in the background
8:43

crystalwolf:
God, that is a good one?
8:43

crystalwolf:
Who will sing the anthem? Sarah?
8:43

Sarah Jones:
Ground beef it is- raw, unfiltered and definitely processed
8:42

Sarah Jones:
What do you suggest as drinking word? Bomb Iran? Obamacares? Repeal?
8:41

muttmutt:
So ground beef then? Yum.
8:41

Comment From crystalwolf
What’s the drinking word
8:41

Sarah Jones:
It’s a free for all Muttmutt. Brace yourself.
8:40

Sarah Jones:
I’m waiting for the Newt people to reference Mormonism and multiple wives even though Romney doesn’t practice that sort of Mormonism….
8:40

Comment From muttmutt
What’s the red meat special tonight? Immigration? Gay’s in the military? Bomb Iran?
8:39

Sarah Jones:
Look for tension between Newt and Mitt with one of Mitt’s PACs going after Newt hard in Iowa with ads and Mitt peep’s making public statements about the “contrast” in their marriages (that’s treble plural for Newt).
8:39

Sarah Jones:
You said it Muttmutt
8:39

Comment From muttmutt
Ahhh, another day, another clown show.
8:39

Sarah Jones:
How many of you are going to miss Cain tonight? 999!
8:38

Sarah Jones:
Huntsman is focusing on New Hampshire anyway, but he’s absent tonight because he didn’t meet polling criteria
8:36

Sarah Jones:
Newt’s on the rise with the loss of Cain but the real question for him tonight will be if his strategy of not answering the question asked and blaming the media for asking the candidates anything other than, “Tell us why God loves you best?” while playing Cheerleader for the Base will work as a front-runner.
8:29

Sarah Jones:
It’s the 12th debate (it feels like so many more). The next debate is Dec. 15 and then the infamous Trump debate on the 27th (which may or may not happen depending on which way the wind blows his hair). I’m sure you can’t wait.
