Ha HA!

Dave (in MA)

From the other thread,

HILLARY CLINTON ARRIVING ANY MINUTE - CNN
ACCORDING TO SEISMOLOGISTS - me

Jane

David Axelrod adding his unquestioned brilliance to the pre-debate cheer leading.

Jane

The only issue that will come up tonite is "consistency" because we know that matters more than anything.

Dave (in MA)

I don't think I want to follow Trump. If he tweets anything interesting I'm sure it'll make its way around.

Dave (in MA)

What's all the jabbering in the background behind all the jabbering in the foreground?

Jeff Dobbs

I'm watching Yukon Men.

Miss Marple 2

OK, I am on the Trump Twitter feed.

I am also on CNN, where so far I have had to listen to Brazile, Begala, and Axelrod.

I will report what I observe, as much as I can.

Dave (in MA)

Rumor: H-> focus group tested what color to wear to the debate.

Miss Marple 2

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump 15s15 seconds ago

We will all have fun and hopefully learn something tonight. I will shoot straight and call it as I see it, both the good and the bad. Enjoy!

Jane

Dave, it's just you and me, and since I started drinking before you were driving, my money is on you!

Miss Marple 2

CNN ad says Tapper will interview IVANKA Trump tomorrow.

I bet she runs rings around him. She is very smart.

BBB Key

they all just became cubs fans . listen to opening remarks

Jeff Dobbs

Triple B!

lyle

Cheryl Crow singing the nat'l anthem? Really? I hope she spontaneously combusts and takes out the entire room.

Dave (in MA)

Wolfie: "The excitement is building"
"The debate is going to begin shortly"

Well, which one is it? Make up your mind.

Miss Marple 2

Axelrod says Hillary needs to inject a little poetry into her presentation tonight.

What poetry would that be?

The Raven?

lyle

Speaking of combustion, Dave is en fuego!

Jeff Dobbs

OK, I changed to CNN.

(i blame the beer)

Miss Marple 2

Jeff, One thing I notice is that CNN is very dark on set colors and backgrounds.

Gives it an appropriately sinister feeling.

Going to refill my wine glass before this gets started.

lyle

Poetry? How many words rhyme with "runt"? Go!

Dave (in MA)

Nice to see CNN bring out such a broad spectrum of opinion in their panel.

PD

Am I imagining it or is Axelrod's nose growing longer?

Jeff Dobbs

I really miss Axelrod's mustache.

(not really, but again, beer)

I sure hope Hillary wears orange, but I'm betting on blue.

Dave (in MA)

There once was a Secretary of State from Nantucket,

Jane

Democrats believe in the national Anthem? I'm shocked.

Jane

Did Axelrod just say Obama was at 80% favor ability?

Dave (in MA)

Which nation?

Miss Marple 2

Dear Leader has a taped message reminding everyone how wonderful he is.

What a creep!

Jane

Oh good. Obama can't stay out of it.

Jeff Dobbs

This Obama tape is a campaign commercial.

Miss Marple 2

Jane,

My thoughts exactly!

Dave (in MA)

Howie Carr said Obama was going to watch the Cubs game.

Which ended quite a while ago.

Jane

They are already late.

henry

Vogon poetry

lyle

I won't be watching the coven circle tonite but I am drinking a delightful J.M. Boillot 1er Cru Rully at the moment in fabulous Sun Valley. Grilled lamb and a succulent Brunello awaits. Cheers, you JOMers! I will, of course, be checking in for max snark of which is already on display.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I figured she was gonna be doing the ponderous Soviet national anthem. No?

Miss Marple 2

Now the panels says that people are getting impatient with Biden's delay, and he is "looming" over the debate.

Jane

Kiwi is beyond bored.

Jeff Dobbs

I watch so little political/news tv, I feel like the hillbilly who's headed into the big city.

Too much going on, the pace of the voices, the chryon, ay yi yi, I feel like going on a dog walk in Alaska.

buccaneer morgan

Actually that just the second worse verse in the universe, the worst came from someone in ipswich, what is about that berg that inspired Doug Adam's disdain.

Dave (in MA)

I just cracked open a delightful can of diet Dr. Pepper.

Jane

The dog walker is hanging out with moose at the airport Hit.

lyle

Idaho is nicer right now, Jeff. You know it.

Rick Ballard
"Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg, and howlet's wing,-- For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble."

Shakespeare was clairvoyant.

Miss Marple 2

Jeff,

I mostly listen, since my TV is over my left shoulder in my office. I only look for things like Hillary's dress color.

I can't stand all the scrolling stuff.

Dave (in MA)

Jane, how's her leg?

lyle

Dave is pacing himself or bullshitting us. You decide.

Jeff Dobbs

Dave:
I just cracked open a delightful can of diet Dr. Pepper.

I just grabbed three more beers out of the garage fridge. These should last a good 20 minutes.

buccaneer morgan

Its like president snow presiding over the quarter quell.

Jeff Dobbs

Why did CNN just have that dramatic flash of past debates (Kennedy-Nixon, Bush-Dukakis, etc) . . . as if the Dem primary debate is in any way similar?

Jane

Her leg appears fine. It was so odd. For 2 hours she, could not use it. For 2 hours she had such a limp she fell on her face. For 2 hours she had a limp. And then back to normal. I have no idea.

Jane

8 minutes late. Clearly they have nothing to talk about.

buccaneer morgan

Except it's only the flickerman interview, not the trial by combat.

Dave (in MA)

Brazile's advice to H-> was to just be herself. I'm sure her best people were busy trying to figure out how to coach her how to fake that.

Jeff Dobbs

Jane:
Her leg appears fine.

So Hillary won't be using the walker to make it to the podium?

Miss Marple 2

Well, the opening gave a lot of clips to Bernie and Hillary, but zilch to the other three.

Centralcal on iPad

It hasn't even started and already CNN is over the top in their intro.

maryrose

Debate late
Is this any way to runs railroad?

Beasts of England

I want Joe Biden to enter like Fartman.

Jane

Please wear orange Canckles.

Janet S.

I hope she spontaneously combusts

They'll have to clean up her mess with one square of TP.

buccaneer morgan

CNN is like al Bundy reminiscing about the big game for Polk high.

Miss Marple 2

Oh, good, Facebook questions.

LOL!

Jane

Ahhh such heavyweights - particularly Hillary in disappointing blue.

Miss Marple 2

Nope, navy blue on Hillary!

I told Perino that's what she would wear.

Jane

Now 10 minutes late.

Rick Ballard

She's wearing Monica blue?

How touching.

Janet S.

Has it started yet? I don't have cable, so I'm relying on JOM & Trump.

henry

Can the stage hold the weight?

Jeff Dobbs

Perilous is a hard word to sing.

Apparently

Miss Marple 2

Here's Cheryl Crow!

You guys thought I was making that up, didn't you?

She's without accompaniment and has started too high.

Jane

Ahhhh "Monica blue". I like it.

PD

It hasn't even started and already CNN is over the top in their intro.

You're not enthralled with the steel cage death match approach, either? Talk about cheapening the event.

Jeff Dobbs

Rick:
She's wearing Monica blue?

HAH! No chance there's any Bill semen on it though.

Jane

Now 12 minutes late.

Miss Marple 2

Crow not very good. Nasally and reedy.

Dave (in MA)

Ha, Rick.

Jane

And we go to commercial.

jimmyk

Shakespeare was clairvoyant.

When shall we three five meet again

In thunder, lightning, or in rain?

...

Fair is foul, and foul is fair;

Hover through the fog and filthy air.

Centralcal on iPad

Crow croaks out the National anthem. The Dems do like their celebs. Already commercial no. 2. I bet the whole debate only takes ten minutes tops. CNN doesn't get many eyeballs any more, so gotta push those commercials while the iron is hot.

Miss Marple 2

Well, so far it's *:44 and the debate is yet to get started.

If they end when they said we will only get about an hour of actual debate. Especially with the commercials.

PD

Debate late
Is this any way to runs railroad?

It's to show they're not fascists like Mussolini.

Jeff Dobbs

henry:
Can the stage hold the weight?

There's more gravity in play here than gravitas, that's for sure.

Jeff Dobbs

maryrose:
Is this any way to runs railroad?

And . . . Norfolk Southern is the first commercial after the candidate introductions.

17 minutes late.

Miss Marple 2

Each candidate gets 1 minute to answer and 30 seconds for rebuttal.

Now introductions, starting with Chaffee.

Jeff Dobbs

Still 43 minutes ahead of "Obama-time"

anonamom

I'm going to bed.

Jane

Lincoln Chafee: Time to go to the metric system. I've done everything really really well. Vote for me.

Centralcal on iPad

Oh brother - I don't think I can watch this. Chaffee quaveringly leads off. This dodo bird was a Governor once. Dear Lord.

Jeff Dobbs

Chaffee: "...my 30 years of public service..."

You picked a wrong year to stress that.

Jane

Chafee has no scandals. No life, but no scandals and he;s into climate change and ending wars.

Miss Marple 2

Chafee: I acted like a Republican when mayor, but became a democrat when I was elected to the Senate. Obligatory Bush-Cheney attack.

Beasts of England

Metric system? Check out the big brain on Brett!

buccaneer morgan

And a part of the world's most deliberative body, yikes.

henry

It took him 30 years to turn Rhode Island into a laughing stock? What a lightweight.
