Why do we even bother with debates?

In my tiny little mind, I cannot figure out what at least half of the questions asked in the “debate” tonight were supposed to be about, they didn’t have a damn thing to do with being a President-

I think it was media driven to ask provocative questions designed to alienate voting blocks and force candidates to change their known stances on issues or come off looking like a fool. Prime example, asking Mike Huckabee if he believes in Evolution or Creation…

For Gods sake, the man is an ORDAINED BAPTIST MINISTER… What do you expect him to say?????

And then, Dog Blitzer asked a FOLLOW UP QUESTION???? Oh come on….

By the way, can you imagine that question being asked during the Democrap debate???

The other thing I find interesting is the media’s continual broadcasting and disecting of Republican “scandals” and the complete lack of coverage of any Democratic scandals…

This was sent to me as humor, but I think there is a lot of fact behind the humor…


The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.

The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country.

The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the country and who are very good at crossword puzzles.

USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country but don’t really understand The New York Times. They do, however, like their statistics shown in colored pie charts.

The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn’t mind running the country — if they could find the time — and if they didn’t have to leave Southern California to do it.

The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the country and did a far superior job of it, thank you very much.

The New York Daily News is read by people who aren’t too sure who’s running the country and don’t really care as long as they can get a seat on the train.

The New York Post is read by people who don’t care who’s running the country as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while intoxicated.

The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country but need the baseball scores.

The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren’t sure there is a country . . . Or that anyone is running it; but if so, they oppose all that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are handicapped minority feminist atheist dwarfs who also happen to be illegal aliens from any another country or galaxy, provided of course they are pro gay rights, pro government sponsored gender reassignment surgery, anti military and that they are not Republicans.

The National Enquirer is read by people trapped in line at the grocery store.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune is read by people who have recently caught a fish and need something in which to wrap it.


I’m just grouchy tonight- Another night on the road in another hotel attending another set of meetings that are a repeat of the meetings we had last year… and the year before… and the, well you get the idea.

I really envy those of you who actually have a job that lets you get home at night to your family and sleep in your own bed.

  1. …and all newspapers are good to line bottom of the birdcage…

    Come to think of it, what lies on top of the papers (at the bottom of the cage) reminds me alot of the politicians…
