So… The Debate

Yes, we watched it. For you. The things we do for our loyal citizenry.

It was as we’d suspected. On one hand, at least, in that the Hillary Worshiping “moderator” did all that he could to stay well away from the Cankled Beast’s discomfort zones. But that’s hardly news. Anybody going into a debate between a ProgNazi and a human being would be a fool to think that the “moderator” wouldn’t steer proceedings in favor of his ProgNazi idol.

What surprised us a bit was that Trump didn’t go all out on the drunken, brain damaged old goat’s too numerous to count scandals and crimes. But, then again, maybe that’s what he meant to do. Maybe he’s feeling out the opponent for the next two bouts, or maybe it’s just as simple as him knowing that nobody remembers a rat’s asshair’s worth of what went on in the first debate come election time, so he saved the Good Stuff™ for last. Or maybe he’s just a howling, drooling incompetent who, through some act of G-d, became a multi-billionaire in spite of having no brains at all (the #NeverTrump creed, or so we understand).

All that is idle speculation.

What we DO know is that not a single damn thing was debated that the masses of voters care about even in the slightest. Dispute it if you like, but we don’t see Mr. and Mrs. Mainstream (and, let’s be honest here, they ARE the ones with all the votes, not a tiny group of eggheaded poli-junkies like ourselves) giving a fart in a twister about Trump’s tax returns, Obongo’s birth certificate or the fact that Trump once hurt a fat cow’s feelings by calling her fat.

To the extent that something that people might care about WAS mentioned, that is to say jobs and trade, Trump was the only one addressing the issue in any sort of way that might connect, by stating that we need to bring businesses (that’s where jobs are made, they’re NOT made by Gender Study Dance Interpretation majors. Sorry, Proggie SJWs) back by lowering taxes and we need to not always be left with the sponge end of the stick in trade deals. The Hildebeest was blubbering the usual inanities that politicians always resort to, basically saying “we’ll fix the problem by making it go away. Somehow. Magically.”

So overall? Who won?

On Politi-Junkie Points, we suppose the Hildebeest did by managing to not have a seizure for over an hour and a half and by not being run over by a merciless string of verbal attacks.

But on substance?

If she won, then what exactly did she win?

That remains to be seen.

Thatisall.

    I didn’t watch it, but from my reading, I think Trump was feeling things out. I suspect that the next two debates are going to be different now that he knows what to expect.

    Recall the first debate between Mittens and Der Fubar. Romney cleaned his clock and surprised a number of people. Then recall what happened on the next debate.

    I’ve read suggestions that that is pretty much what happened. (Or at least that’s what they’re hoping is the case.) Trump spent this debate working to prove that he isn’t a total loon, next debate he’ll draw some blood, and then go for the kill on the last one, the one which folks are most likely to remember going into the voting booth.

    I got the impression that the…..ahem……moderator was trying not to do anything that would upset the harpy. She spent the whole debate showing us exactly how gramma looks when she’s on her meds.

    Well of course he doesn’t want to upset her. Do you know what the life expectancy of people that Hillary Clinton is upset with?

    Now if you want some laughs, go to Amazon and read the reviews on her new book.

    You have things like “I gave the book 5 stars because I don’t want to commit suicide by shooting myself in the head three times.”

    My Emperor, please forgive us!!!

    When I think that you watched that debacle for us, well, I just get all verklempt.

    Especially since I didn’t watch anything at all to do with it.
    In the days leading up I didn’t watch any news, I didn’t watch the ‘debate’ and I didn’t watch any of the recaps.

    Trump was going against the Dems and the media, including much of Foxnews.

    I just can’t take anymore of people saying, “Trump isn’t qualified!!!” no matter what he says or does.
    Because the corollary is that Hillary! is.

    I admit, anybody who said I would vote, and root, for Trump to become POTUS would have courted a smack in the face…but here we are.

    A hearty thanks, your Rottie-rific Viciousness! I don’t generally watch any of those productions anyway. Word is the esteemed Fester Dolt did indeed play the part of a festering dolt. So much for his little interval of respect!

    I watched it. He did well in the first 1/2 hour; missed some yuuuge low-hanging curve balls and didn’t put the harpy away.

    But.

    He did come across as a human being, and made a couple of practical suggestions; however, she came across as a shrike, a Nurse Ratched. And WHAT was that little bosom-waggle she did at the end???? Whisky Tango Foxtrot? It looked like she was triumphant that she’d managed to steal the cookies from the jar without being spanked. Or something….

    In other news: here’s a report of the terrified Charlotte motorists caught on the freeway during the race riot last week. http://heatst.com/culture-wars/charlotte-horror-how-trapped-drivers-pleaded-with-911-to-rescue-them-from-seething-mob/

    Calling 911, begging for help, terrified for their lives…. Yeah, Hildabitch, we need to “understand” ‘em.

    I didn’t watch it, but I did sneak off to the store and get you an extra bottle of brain bleach, emperor. I figure you’ll need it. Hell, the whole country does, but I could only afford the one bottle.

    I very much appreciate the shipment of brain bleach, because it was sorely needed. Stores have been running kind of low at the palace, to put it mildly.
