I’m trying to decide if I want to punish the entire Republican ticket. I’m actually kind of torn: currently, I’m planning on voting Green for president (why not), Democrat for House (because the republican’s website is only half complete and looks completely unprofessional), and Republican for Senate (because Szeliga is the most reasonable candidate I’ve seen in a while). But the Republicans nominated the Anti-Christ for president. They need to be learn that this kind of pandering does not fly. So, anyway, another debate.
Tonight: A big glass of Laphroaig 10 years. Tawny Port for Jen.
2100: “The Rocky Horror Picture Show event is tomorrow night.” I thought it was tonight!
2101: Watching with Fox today. I hate Trump so much that I want the coverage to be as friendly to him as possible. Shep Smith doing a good job here. Starting to forgive him for saying that Hurricane Matthew was going to kill all your children.
2102: Fox has a tight rope walk ahead tonight. The Trump ship is sinking, and Fox is as tied up with him as you can get. AND Trump is talking about making his own news station…which will be in direct competition with Fox (not MSNBC, I suspect). How do they treat him here tonight?
2105: Mix Trump’s skin with Clinton’s suit, and you have a creamsicle.
2106: Surprised that Clinton got right to the question rather than 45 seconds of preamble. Impressed. Hey, how about this for the Supreme Court – can they just interpret the law?
2107: Laphroaig is often described as “medicinal”. But man, it’s deep. A nice warmth. Oh, news flash, Clinton wants to push along Obama’s nominee. OK, cool.
2108: Trump subdued again. How long would 2 mg of Xanax take to wear off on a bull moose like Trump? 15 minutes? 20 minutes? We’ll check in later.
2110: 10 minutes of open arguing. This is the Fox style.
2111: Sensible gun control (background checks, terror watch list checks, storage etc). I have no idea who would argue against this. I read a good article on Newtown, CT recently.
2114: So far, Chris Wallace is owning this debate. We’ll see how this goes. He comes in with more authority than the previous moderators.
2115: Roe v Wade was passed by a conservative court, I’m told. Abortion is the worst. Gross. A sobering topic, unlike scotch.
2119: Abortion is an evil evil.
2120: Trump doesn’t actually know how birth works; not on a schedule. But so far, I am not mad with him.
2121: Xanax hasn’t worn off yet, and yet he remains coherent. Still sniffing though. He is backpedaling on a full deportation, focusing instead on the hombres.
2125: Andrew Miller, how about him. Cleveland in the World Series. Sorry, zoned out.
2126: If Chris Wallace alienates Trump and Trump starts boycotting Fox News…will he just hang out in his house until the election?
2127: This is why I don’t like it when my 3.5 year old takes a nap. Isn’t it good that Obama deported millions of people?
2129: It is interesting that the Russian government wants Trump to be president. Do we trust them?
2130: Chris Wallace scolds the audience again. I am enjoying this guy. While I was typing that sentence, we got on to Radical Islamic Terrorism. I’m not following his train of thought anymore.
2131: You’re the puppet! Wow, she struck a nerve there. 23 minutes, he’s starting to come off the rails. What was it last time? To the tape!
2132: It was 22 minutes last time. Off the rails. Chris Wallace. Woooo.
2134: Putin’s not my BFF!
2135: He’s sniffing still, but less.
2136: At least Trump can pronounce Nuclear.
2137: I’m digging Chris Wallace.
2137: Abby, who has no soccer ball, has decided that she want’s to be a soccer ball for halloween. She has wanted this for a month. But she wants to be a soccer ball with red patches rather than black. All right. Whatever.
2138: I’ll be honest, I’ve got the bottle right here with me. I’m not really following this baloney anymore. I keep hearing about this “free school” thing, but I’m skeptical.
2140: No one gives Donald more credit than Donald.
2143: Just watched the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer. Just saying. By the way, I agree – Obama did inherit a tremendous catastrophe economically. Dude’s one of the better presidents we’ve had, as people will acknowledge in a decade or two. Especially in comparison with these dopes.
2146: India is growing at 8% but their per capita income is like $4000 a year or something. It’s really not a fair comparison.
2147: Totally lied, and fact checkers actually said I was right. He was very surprised about that. It’s maybe the first time that he’s ever said something true.
2149: Condescending. Bad experience. He’s doing a good job this time. Less incoherent.
2151: That was a powerful Clinton set piece on experience. She rehearsed that well.
2152: By the way, we would be interested in hosting refugees. These are families feeling terrible situations to keep their kids alive. If Trump actually raised his kids, he would have a little more compassion.
2154: Not attractive enough to be assaulted. Yes, that’s a good point. Chris Wallace, still keeping things under control Another strong Clinton set piece by Clinton here, on women.
2156: Nobody in the whole world has more respect for women than Trump. Not even one. There are 3.5 billion men in the world, and Trump is literally the number one respecter of women.
2159: Third powerful set piece of Clinton, this time about all the people he has belittled.
2200: I’m getting sleepy.
2203: Something something something; someone just sent me to Edible Arrangements Facebook page.
2204: Rather than paying a lawsuit, Trump put up an American flag. OK. Good zing on tax returns.
2205: Chris Wallace, please come back.
2206: Rigged election. This is the scariest part of this whole thing. This is terrifying. Peaceful transition of power from Chris Wallace.
2209: Here we are, a fourth Clinton set piece, this on rigging.
2210: Trump as a human is completely off the rails, but he has gotten better at the debates as he’s gone. Less incoherent stories this time. But he’s letting Clinton dominate. She sounds so much smarter than he does.
2214: Trump’s theories on warfare – the element of surprise – a little naive. The Iraqis are in on the Clinton fix too…
2216: Who cares if Trump was for Iraq in 2003, when he was a blubbering idiot who was not running for president.
2217: I hate the look Clinton gets on her face when she thinks she’s said something funny.
2220: Putin, Assad…let’s see if Clinton does a set piece on the axis of evil world leaders that Trump admires.
2221: Lots of luck Hilary. So, did Trump just concede the election to her?
2223: I want some food. This is silly. He didn’t implode. She continued to only say smart things. That is the standard against which the two of them are judged.
2224: Vast swatches of land. I remember swatches!
2225: Trump is delusional. But he believes it. I guess that’s the definition of delusional.
2227: I think the talking point from this debate will be the part where Trump said he was still considering whether he’d stage a coup against a democratically elected government.
2230: I thought it was going to be over at 10:30, yet here we are. I’m going to get something and go to bed.
