GOP Primary Debate 8/6/15

Postby Kane » Thu Aug 06, 2015 6:27 pm

I've got my TV on fox news and I'm waiting for the debate to start. Does anybody have any bets on the debate? Who's going to win? Any feelings on the debate itself? I believe Trump is going to win the debate by virtue of the other candidates coming away as trying to be too moderate towards the base in preparation for the general election. I expect Trump to either maintain or gain from this debate. I also think the debate being on Fox news and requiring a cable subscription...sucks balls.

Anybody else with me?

I'm sitting here with some White cheddar cheese that's aged for six months, a box of Carrs table water cracekrs (roasted garlic and herb), along with a bottle of Cabernet sauvignon.

Waiting for Gretchen and Bill to f**k off.

Ideally, one of the candidates will have a decent marketing team, and they'll realize that the first candidate to assassinate Trump is going to look damned good later on. At worst, you'll piss off the people who'd vote for Trump, which is no loss because they are insane. At best, you'll come out as the voice of reason, willing to take on even the most extreme and retarded members of the party.
