"Chris Christie is under the impression that this is a hot dog eating contest." Brilliant.

I'm actually going to be watching/sarcastically live blogging this instead of watching Tucker, but I noticed today that there's no Larry Elder. Allowing the party (or parties, in the general) to dictate the criteria of who gets to debate is unacceptable.

I won't be watching people vying for second place (aka the first loser). I did see some new dog poop out on my walk this morning, maybe I'll go back and watch it dry? It would be more entertaining.

What a lineup! Likely this will be a debate between Vivek and DeSantis with a few interruptions from the yipping chihuahuas.

Not watching, but love your roundup.

Some local conservative friends attended a luncheon for Ramaswampy, hosted by the OCGOP, who had previously been interested in hearing him. He proved himself to be a narcissistic novice, not worth attention at this time. He had no true policy stances. And said he’d like to be mentored by president Trump when he wins. Mentored? We don’t need candidates with training wheels. I won’t watch the debate. Fox is dead to me. Tucker has my attention and is interviewing my candidate. The others can play in the juvenile sandbox while the true front runner, deservedly so, expands on his objectives when elected to office.

Great overview. My add would be, "Pence is the first to get booed. When he is introduced!" I'll skip as I do all TV. Be looking for good memes by week's end though.

Loved it Jordan. Yes essentially a bunch of twaddle pedlars and in reality a poor recreation of the gong show ....

Thanks for your summary; clarified some details for me. Will likely skip because pence makes me sick. But so do most of the other players, too. 🤮

One quibble. Your description of Hutchinson should include Pharma shill. From the estimable Gerald Posner: https://www.justthefacts.media/p/why-didnt-one-presidential-candidate

So Tucker asked the weak emasculated Asa Hutchinson how many vaxxes he took, let's see if Tucker has the balls to ask Trump the same thing. I'd watch just to see Mr Operation Warp Speed squirm.

You summed it up pretty well. I feel as though I just "watched" it. So that's one thing I won't have to do.

I used to like DeSantis more before he started acting all presidential, like going to Israel to sign some hate crime Florida law. That's just show boaty. Not impressed.

Why isn't he doing anything about Miami being a C40 city? If you're all anti global elites taking over the world...your own back yard WOULD be a place to start.

And Texas, this goes for you too. Houston AND Austin. Is someone asleep at the wheel?

Why is that California idiot Newsom and DeSantis are having a debate? Are we being herded in a specific uni-party direction? I am disappointed but I think we are.
