Random Kinda Live Blogging on the Republican Debate

Written by Lotus on Sunday, 21 of October , 2007 at 8:38 pm

Abra cadabra, please disappear Mayor!

UPDATE 10-22-07: Here are some thoughts from AOTUS, my exclusive debate mole!

McCain won the weekend. He is the toast of the town. Since I don’t like any of the top tier candidates, I think I’ll put myself behind him for having the most character.

Could you hear the Ron Paul boos on TV? So tacky. We got lectured beforehand on appropriate reactions, and were specifically told not to do that. Notice us Paul-ers never booed y’all when talking about who could nuke Iran 1st.

And the Citgo commercial wtf?

8:31 p.m. Shout out from Tancredo!  Thanks, paisan!

8:40 p.m. There’s nothing more comforting than the warm, orange glow of Florida Governor Charlie Crist.

8:42 p.m. Giuliani seems to really understand the issue of school choice as an important civil rights issue.  Perhaps this will be the “choice” issue to win over the social conservatives. 

8:46 p.m. Chris Wallance reminds the Republican candidates that all of them are losing to Senator Clinton in the polls.  After Giuliani’s great answer on school choice, that’s a real downer.

8:48 p.m. I’m so glad they’re expanding beyond the national security questions. 

8:50 p.m. Giuliani to Clinton: “American can’t afford you!”  Awww… Giuliani blows a kiss to my home state of Florida for their help in the 2000 election.

8:51 p.m. McCain: “I would much rather lose an election than lose a war.”  Jokes that he wasn’t at Woodstock “because I was tied up at the time.”  Standing O. 

8:54 p.m. See Huckabee Be Serious: “There’s nothing funny about Hillary being president.”

8:55 p.m. Question for Fred Thompson.  I literally forgot that he was even there.  It looks like he’s reading from a speech.

9:04 p.m. Apparently, Romney was at the Olympics and reformed their Medicare coverage or something.  Republicans are AWFUL on talking about the entitlements issues.  Americans aren’t scared of principled answers.  It’s ok to admit that benefits and programs should be cut because it’s not the federal government’s job to provide them cradle to grave.  (PS — I’m not a Paultard!)

9:10 p.m.  I think Reps. Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo stopped dying their hair.  I don’t remember them being so gray.  Hot.

Oooooh… here come’s the lightening and wild card round!  No whammy! No whammy!

9:17 p.m. Uh, this doesn’t seem to be the lightening round just yet.  For a couple minutes, white chicken chili rather than white men will have my attention.

9:27 p.m. I wonder how far Rep. Ron Paul could get if he stopped talking about foreign policy and the U.S. “prancing around the world.”  He’s the crazy old man yelling at the clouds.

9:30 p.m. Finally, Fred Thompson reminds everyone of his creepiness.  He says the most important reason that he’s not lazy is that he has two kids under 4-years-old.

Speaking of creepy… here comes Frank Luntz!  His focus group sure has Hillary’s number.  They all scored the Republican candidates the highest when they attacked Hillary.

Alright, so who was the winner?  The focus group doesn’t have a consensus, but seem to lean toward Giulani.  I think I agree.  I noticed that whenever he spoke, I stopped what I was doing to listen. 

LOTUS remains undecided on the next POTUS.  I really think that we have a good crop of candidates.  Granted they aren’t all rising to the top, but there’s certainly someone for everyone.

Hot Republican Love

Written by Lotus on Thursday, 11 of October , 2007 at 8:31 pm

In this month’s GQ, “Anonymous” writes that Republicans “are the best party in bed.”  Sure, the reasons are a little over the top (example: “No conscience!”), but that doesn’t make her overall point any less true. 

Hmm… I hope MOTUS (Mom of the United States) doesn’t read the LOTUS blog.
