Well that was utterly unilluminating…

What’s next? 

Neo sums this one (and all future ones) with Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury. Signifying nothing. – The New Neo

That is what I think of presidential debates. I have never understood why we hold them or pay attention to them. They are a form of strange theater, having little to nothing to do with the business of being a president, and controlled by the MSM which has way too much power and way too much bias.

I sensed this one was going to be even more so. And apparently it was, as I’ve learned from reading comments here and there and around the blogosphere. A slugfest, loaded with lying and interruptions, with the moderator showing even more bias against Trump than Candy Crowley did against Romney back in 2012.

I have no idea whether this debate will matter or change a single mind. But I think debates have become a low charade, and I no longer can watch them.

    fuck Wallace

  • MIKE GUENTHER September 29, 2020, 8:22 PM

    What a sh!t show. Wallace lost control after the first question. And as New Neo posited and anyone with eyes could see, Wallace wasn’t even handed and favored Biden.

    At least Trump didn’t go ad hominem like Biden.

    Petulant babies, both.
    They represent the best the US has to off in american politics today. Decent people do not run or get shut out immediately, and only sociopaths or those committed to full blown communism are allowed. You know things can’t continue this way don’t you?
    You also know things that can’t, won’t.
    Better adjust your life accordingly.
    Start with the Remus rule, and live it all the time, no exceptions, ever.
    Or don’t, and suffer.
    You can see the future, it is very clear, what are you going to do about it?

    With all due respect there Cousin Sniper, there is absolutely no equivalence between the two candidates. Biden is a career mediocrity , a lying, corrupt ward heeler on his last hurrah. In reality he’s an empty suit, he’s President Hindenberg , old and feeble lending legitimacy to the fascists off stage.
    Trump is full of character quirks, isn’t astute as a politician in the debate carnival freak show. One thing about him I’ll take to the barricades is he deeply loves the America of our youth and he loves Americans
    I don’t disagree we may be headed for a hellish decade but I’m all in for Trump in the meantime. He’s the best we got right now. God bless America. God bless President Trump

    Well, no more ‘debates’ for me. Those two wore me out more than my ex-wife and in shorter order.

    To me, Wallace was the problem. He was supposed to be the ‘swangin’ dick’ hired to managed that shitshow and he failed, contemptibly. What an utterly disgraceful limp POS.

    But having said that, Trump should take a few lessons on debate etiquette and learn to control himself. Hell I know he was angry and I don’t blame him but with more control he could have made Biden look like the depleted and lost soul that he is and further, he could have shown Wallace’s character and bias to the world. I hate the fucking MSM.

    Amen, brother.

    The whole point of Donald Trump is that he’s NOT a lifelong Washington insider. Joe Biden is the very exemplar of the breed.

    I quite enjoyed not watching the “debate”.

  • ghostsniper September 30, 2020, 12:56 PM

    3 old white doods having a depends soiling contest. Just what everyone wants to see. I wanted to see trump tear him a new one but he couldn’t get out of his own way. They should have hired me to moderate that kindergarten circus. I don’t need a desk or chair, I’m gonna be standing and getting in people faces. I’d burn 4000 calories in that 90 mins. 2 old white doods would be performing like they never have and never thought they could, and a less older white dood would be working em like they was rented mules. The american people would get a debate 1860 style. All questions would be answered to MY satisfaction and there would be no him hawing, yapping out both sides, back sassin’, and talkin’ hollow shit. 2 minutes my ass. 30 seconds to answer the dam question and the first mother fucker that goes off the track will get his ass handed to him good and hard right on live TV. Both those flabby fux would be sweatin in 3 mins and after 30 they’d be begging for a break. No way, got another hour to go. The place would smell like a hog farm as each blew out their depends, over and over. Still I wouldn’t let up with the interrogation. This is for the presidency! The highest office in all the land. Both, and each, will be forced to prove they deserve it and that they want it. When that 90 mins was over there would be no doubt who the next prez should be, but I don’t want it, nor would I accept it, and the first person that suggested it would be in the ICU immediately. After both “contestants” have expended themselves in a boiling puddle of their own decrepit shit on stage I’d kick the podiums over and head for the Wafflehouse for some deserved nutrition and if any of the media-stasi followed my off-stage crew would burn em alive.

    Yeah, I like your attitude, Ghoster!

    My fam were complaining about the funhouse character of the debates, but my comment was it has to have some Lincoln-Douglas Debate to it. Which is, humorous, wild, play to the audience, who file out the exits marked for the Affirmative or the Negative and their vote decides. Fuk the classic rules – this isn’t about whose got the most shirt starch.

    So, it was halfway there. I wanted more; maybe some blood. Other analysts have since said that JB never answered any questions, and resorted to ad hominem attacks. He’s a small man in a politician’s suit, and that is immaterial to his age, which shows so badly. Trump came out not how we’d have liked, but he did achieve some things: dividing JB from his kooky base, and pinning the dem circus on him at the same time.

    Who benefits, in the abstract, from POTUS debates? The challenger. Now, his side is begging for a halt to future debates. That is some shit, isn’t it? I love that outcome.

    Wallace was both a girl, and a whiny cuck at the same time. Quit an accomplishment. No programmed rebuttal time, I think, caused the rebuttal to happen in the margins. SMH. Spits.

    WTF isn’t Ghost, me, RdW, or Guenther in charge? Maybe we should write-in Gerard.

    OK, Trump’s performance was better than first I thought. But, we have miles to go before we’re done. Whose got an October Bingo board I can use?

  • Casey Klahn October 1, 2020, 7:52 AM

    Biden needs to be jailed for what he said about Antifa. If he gets his way, it’ll skip jail and have to straight to the noose. Those were fighting words right there.

    Americans are so enslaved now that they scream the answer to tyranny is surrender.
