Liveblogging The Mississippi Mud Slide, Part II

by Jim Newell

Jim Lehrer, you garish little Skittle whore! What kind of jacket is THAT? Slut slut slut Jim Lehrer is a slut. Oh god this debate is boring, we realized during our last moment of clarity. Time to open the Schlitz! Huh? Who are you people anyway. (Pre-blog & Part 1).

9:30 — “I saved the taxpayers 6 million dollars on a contract between Boeing and…” Oh right, you mean that fight you picked up because your favorite lobbyist friends asked for it. But oh! What do we know. We were in high school or whatever. John McCain was still in Vietnam when he did this.
9:31 — Obama: “Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh insurance $15 billion dollars, uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, George W. Bush is, uhhhhhhhhhhhhh, $20 billion dollars and a fried Scottish terrier.”
9:32 — Lehrer: “One of you all will be president in January.” Candidates: “MMHMM MMHMM.”
9:33 — OH MY GOD JOHN MCCAIN IS OFF HIS METAMUCIL AIDS PILLS AGAIN: He wants to have a “spending freeze,” um, “temporarily,” for all items that aren’t defense or veterans’ care. WHAA? Obama lists two of the 8,000 million trillion reasons why this is not actual a policy at all ever. “Medicare,” for example.
9:34 — Ha ha, fuckin’ Lehrer is condescending to these two so much. Every question has been, “please answer the first question I asked in this debate?”
9:37 — **DING DING DING DRUDGE SIREN DING** Barack Obama says the word “orgy.” Orgy of “spending.”
9:38 — **DING DING DING DRUDGE SIREN DING DING PART II: Barack Obama follows his orgy statement with “you swallow it.” Jesus fuck. He is going to teach sex-ed to at least uh 100 million kindergartners (Caucasian) in one hour.
9:39 — Oh look, they are going to talk about foreign policy now, 40 minutes into the foreign policy debate. Whazza we got goin’ over there, in the foreign countries? Iraq? That still going on? Meh. Tell me about Chris Dodd microprovisions a little more.
9:39 — How do you feel about the lessons of Iraq, John McCain?
9:40 — “Someone else who agreed with everything I said fucked up. I, uh, passed difficult legislation. Know? VICTORY!
9:41 — How do you feel about the lessons of Iraq, John McCain?
9:42 — “Nah nah, man, Lehrer, Iraq. Iraq! Iraq. Nah nah, Lehrer. I’ve been called worse things on the basketball court. Wait, what?”
9:43 — Obama’s faces are priceless whenever McCain starts throwing out bullshit. It’s a tight, lip-sucking sarcasm smile, a la “Jim” from the Office. Stare into the camera with a “WHAAA?”
9:44 — McCain’s face, meanwhile, says, “I WANT TO SUCKLE THE FLESH OF A VIRGIN PUPPY.”
9:45 — Obama lists a number of things John McCain got wrong in 2002-03 about war in Iraq war Congress blah… who remembers back then? I got a new iPod last week though!
9:47 — McCain: Barack Obama visited Iraq -40 times and literally ate three Marines through his anus. And then he voted against the moneys.
9:49 — OH MY GOD ROB. My fucking roommate, “Rob,” just dropped a 40 of Schlitz on the kitchen floor and it broke. SMASHED. Everyone say, “die Rob,” right now. DIE ROB! And now we have to split this Steel Reserve.
9:50 — Gawd. Can someone tell a joke? Isn’t McCain known for that, his “funnies”? Tell one of those things about bestiality rape. Oh god Rob is still cleaning up the glass. Barack Obama is such a downer about Iraq! What did Iraq ever do to him.
9:51 — THIS IS SO BOOOOORIRIRNGNGNGNGNG. Perhaps Barry just wants a stalemate. That would make sense. Stalemate. I hope Rob gets glass in his feet.
9:53 — Poppy fields are growing in Afghanistan, Barry says. Silly Barry. Doesn’t he know that most people don’t make the connection between poppy and terrible drugs? Poppy is a nice salad dressing seed!
9:54 — Walnuts: “we need to rebuild the Marriott in Islamabad.” We need to *help* the bad Islam town?
9:55 — Obama says, if them Pakistani bitchcunts be actin up, we gots to “TAKE ‘EM OUT.” Whoa hey what who are you whoa hey.
9:56 — Oh god Ken needs to take over REALLY SOON.
9:57 — HAHAHAHA, Obama brings up “Bomb Bomb Bomb, Bomb Bomb Iran.” First time ever! What?
9:58 — McCain: when I came to the Congresses in 1983, I had no pants. Now I haz pants. Now I bomb Kosovo. Now I have a record. Pakistan. Barack Obama knows none of these things. I now have pants. I just pooped all over them.
9:59 — McCain: “I knew some guy who died last year.” Oh is he crying? Oh god he’s crying.
10:00 — HAHAHA Obama: “I knew some guy who died last year too.” But he doesn’t cry because he’s an adult.
10:00 — Alright, Ken’s turn, thank God! Ken is the president of Mojave Desertz tee hee. GO HERE.

McCain is clueless abt. health care.

SayItWithWookies September 26, 2008 at 9:35 pm

Yeah, the government got its money back during the Depression — after fifteen years. Which is two lifetimes in presidential election cycles.

d4g33z September 26, 2008 at 9:35 pm

Haha. McCain wants the families to confer with their deceased regarding health care.

[re=111311]Ken Layne[/re]: You have to love that Lehrer goaded McCain into that. McCain can’t stand a vacuum.

So, was the lack of post this afternoon so you all could do all the Blingee art?

jagorev September 26, 2008 at 9:35 pm

The spending freeze idea is both obviously irresponsible and also obviously disingenuous. Does it matter to McCain that he is likely to piss off everyone with that line?

2druk2phluq September 26, 2008 at 9:35 pm

foreign policy debate, eh?

Walnuts just confused millions will billions! I think we have to adopt the English system of referring to billion as thousand million. And the English system of referring to girls as birds.

memzilla September 26, 2008 at 9:36 pm

So trusting the Fed to bail out Wall Street = GOOD. Trusting the Fed to bail out health care = BAD. WTF, McPain?

Orgy of spending! Tell em! I’m so mad (read: drunk) I can’t!

Sazerac September 26, 2008 at 9:36 pm

Obama just said that Walnuts likes orgies! That’s the spirit.

SayItWithWookies September 26, 2008 at 9:36 pm

Oh, McCain’s right — high taxes are the cause of this subprime mortgage crisis. How come more people don’t realize he’s the man to fix the economy?

superfecta September 26, 2008 at 9:36 pm

So McCain’s definition of lower taxes is taxing my health insurance as income? Tell me more!

thwanger September 26, 2008 at 9:37 pm

legglaw September 26, 2008 at 9:37 pm

Spending freeze on everything except for War and the Valium for the old soldiers in the Veterans Hospital. Goddamit, lets just go ahead and declare martial law.

So, wait- is McCain running for Miss Congeniality? That’s what I’m getting out of this.

Did McCain REALLY just use the Miss Congeniality line uh-GAIN?

“I think the lesson of Iraq is that you cannot have a failed strategy that then causes you to lose. I also believe that tautologies are tautologies too.”
