Liveblogging the ‘Oh Let’s Pretend We Like Herman Cain’ GOP Debate

  liveblogging in hell

It is Kirsten's fault for not doing a blingee like she promised.Hello, and welcome to Hades. It’s time for another “there’s actually a GOP debate every week forever” edition of Tonight’s GOP Debate. Who Will Win? Maybe Michele Bachmann will revive her lagging campaign by making the “Cakes of Light” (you really don’t want to know) and then maybe Chris Christie bursts out of this enormous semen/blood concoction, naked except for novelty Jack Sparrow dreadlocks, and sings “Happy Birthday I’m the President” in a comical/racist Warner Bros. cartoon “Italian voice,” and then Herman Cain transforms the entire auditorium into a Barnes & Noble book signing, and gives everybody their own burned-down fast-food franchise to “work from the ground up.” This is the only thing that can happen … this, and whatever actually happens over the next two hours of mental waterboarding. Grab literally every kind of alcoholic beverage and narcotic you can find and prepare yourself, because it’s time to Occupy Corporate America’s Fake Populist Mormon Cultist Texan Pizza Monsters. Would Jesus have it any other way, in this country he built from scratch on a sunny day in 1776 (with slave labor)? Watch it live on Bloomberg, with us!

7:35 PM — The important thing is that the camera stay on Herman Cain when the moderator asks Rick Perry about “the N-word head” or whatever that thing is called, the place where Rick Perry hunts living black people. There is a movie about this starring Ice-T. The director of the debate actually plans on what ridiculous manufactured bitch fight will make the most sad-face moment, in advance. The world of American political television is astounding.
7:37 PM — And you, my corporate friends, can watch this streaming via the Washington Post Kaplan home-skoolin’ video Internet network, right here. (It’s not working very well right now, which figures.)
7:38 PM — One thing that’s comforting is you don’t need to “feel bad” when all the Fox News people are captured by the mobs, dressed in foam-rubber pirogi suits and dumped in the sewage outfall pipe. They’ll deserve it:

7:40 PM — And now we hear from Kirsten that the blingee is not ready, because it’s “too complicated” and has “many layers.”
8:05 PM — There. There is your Blingee, America. (Sorry.) Now we’ve got the debate on, but it’s just a still image of Rick Perry having hemorrhoids, we think.
8:07 PM — Michele Bachmann: The federal government is responsible for the financial collapse because of … deregulation?
8:08 PM — And she’s dressed as convicted Ukrainian politician Yulia Tymoshenko, who was sentenced to seven years in the Gulag today.
8:10 PM — Newt, please explain how Obama caused the Wall Street protests, because he is black.
8:10 PM — The *good* people protesting are in the Tea Party, because they clean up after themselves. The bad ones are liberals. (So everybody at the Wall Street protests are … Teabaggers?) Also, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd should be in prison.
8:11 PM — Yes, in both cases, Newt Gingrich is saying yes, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd must be imprisoned. (Not Newt Gingrich, though! And not Bush, not Cheney, not Rumsfeld. Just, uh, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd.)
8:12 PM — Newt gets applause, not for this sputtering enraged nonsense, but for saying Ben Bernanke should be raped to death by a leftist agitator.
8:12 PM — Ron Paul is bravely praising Bloomberg, the host of this debate.
8:13 PM — He also bravely notes that financial bubbles tend to burst. Nobody claps for that.
8:13 PM — How will “Cakes of Shit” Rick Santorum restore manufacturing? Poor people need to take a hit, to stay competitive! Once we pay people a dollar a day again, like in Chinese sweatshops, and then repeal ALL REGULATIONS (which are Antagonistic, and Leftist), we will be the new Industrial Wasteland of the World! (And poor people and working people will continue being fucked and crippled until they die, soon.)
8:14 PM — Santorum literally described some shitball plan of his as a “cool thing.”
8:15 PM — Jon Huntsman, who was accidentally locked in the “debate room” when they were cleaning up last time, is still here — he could not figure out how to escape. And he’s been working on a very sharp joke, about how Washington is the “gas capital.” Painful fake laughs follow from the teevee hostess.
8:17 PM — “Congressman Speaker or whatever you’re called, when will you kill Americans with Medicare?”
8:18 PM — Gingrich: “I’m really glad you asked that–” GROAN “–because blah blah blah Washington bureaucrat don’t want him pumping my prostate.”
8:18 PM — And this, prostate cancer tests, is what Gingrich says Palin meant when she made up the Facebook joke “Death Panels.” This is so insanely far from the truth that it gets absolutely no response from anyone, and the teevee hostess quickly stomps over Gingrich’s prostate to get to Bachmann.
8:20 PM — Bachmann is now claiming she spends the summer with Obama in the White House, and he mumbles three times, and then at the last time, the mumble is actually Obama saying “Obamacare.” This is like some ancient Persian myth, deep in meaning perhaps, but only to people who don’t live on this Earth with us.
8:22 PM — Bachmann horse-laughing while somebody (Huntsman?) is saying “prince of the pizza” again and again. Everyone here is on powerful narcotics.
8:23 PM — Herman Cain, having been given the opportunity to answer somebody else saying “nine nine nine,” which only Herman Cain can be, which is why he’s barking at everyone even as the moderators argue over him, saying yes, he may go ahead and shut up and speak.
8:34 PM — Did Herman Cain really say Rich Lowry is his economic adviser? This is wonderful, if true. RICH LOWRY??? He said it again.
8:25 PM — “Governor Romney, it’s the distant future, everything is fucked, and you worship a queer robot. What is wrong with you?”
8:25 PM — Romney: “That’s a hypothetical. I am not good at being on mission.” This is true, as Romney killed some Mormon missionaries in France. You don’t what Romney on your hypothetical mission.
8:26 PM — Kirsten is supposedly twittering on our Twitter, here at Twitter/Wonkette.
8:28 PM — Romney doesn’t know who he’d put in Treasury, doesn’t know who he’d pick for vice president, doesn’t know if he’ll be the nominee, doesn’t know a fucking thing about anything, but by god he’s got a really weird joke about fucking all the economists in a row, like they have to get on the ground one after another, and he fucks ‘em! WHAT IS IN HIS BRAIN.
8:30 PM — Herman Cain “conceptually” said the bailout was good, as a concept. But he disagrees strongly with Mitt Romney that the bailout was good, because Herman Cain doesn’t have any idea what words mean.
8:32 PM — If you’ve ever heard a teenager whine and thought, “well thank christ they all grow out of that,” just listen to elderly Ron Paul.
8:37 PM — And after the commercial break … RONALD REAGAN. They dug him up!
8:38 PM — And the things Reagan said are Wrong and Evil because … let’s see, because this proposal wasn’t successful. So, he never said, nyah nyah, and that’s what’s wrong with Washington today! Well played, Rick Perry, if by “well played” we mean, “You fucking idiot.”
8:39 PM — “Governor Romney, would you like to piss on Reagan’s grave now by disagreeing with Reagan?”
8:40 PM — Romney: “Uhh, could we talk about, say, JFK?”
8:42 PM — Gingrich would also like to distance himself from this trash talk about Reagan.
8:45 PM — “Herman Cain, you’re nine-nine-nine bullshit doesn’t do what it says, and stomps working people with a 9% federal sales tax, you jerk.”
8:46 PM — Cain’s reply: “NINE NINE NINE NINE NINE NINE NINE NINE….”
8:46 PM — If any Republicans followed International News or otherwise had any fucking idea what’s going on in the world, they would perhaps find it weird that Michele Bachmann is dressed as convicted going-to-prison former Ukrainian PM Yulia Tymoshenko:
One resembles the other!
8:47 PM — Also, according to Twitter, Michele Bachmann has decorated herself with a string of huge anal beads.
8:48 PM — But never mind that, Michele Bachmann just said Herman Cain’s plan is SATANIC. Turn over 999, get 666!
8:51 PM — Romney has no idea what might happen if he is president, other than on the mythical first day he is president, he will arrest China for being a manipulator.
8:52 PM — Rick Perry don’t need no 9-9-9, he got the energy. Because Texas is on fire! This endless inferno can power a large turbine, and then … free energy, for the whole world! Even China!
8:54 PM — Rick Santorum: “I want to go to war with China.” Whut?
8:54 PM — Charlie Rose is so stoned he can just barely prop himself up on the table. He is laughing uncontrollably now, threatening to let Herman Cain talk, which is the MOST INSANE THING when you’re high!
8:56 PM — Just jabbering bullshit & insanity now, horse laughs, cackling, arguing, old people arm wrestling, Charlie Rose is getting the hell outta here at the break and then these dingbats can argue amongst themselves. Charlie will be in the green room, with his herb.
9:01 PM — Those little kids doing the “adult financial republican talk” commercials? Not humans, but actually butt demons.
9:05 PM — Haha, Bachmann: “While all these people were wanking over Reagan’s dead body/third term, Rick Perry was ‘Obama Junior’ with Al Gore.”
9:05 PM — And with that, I pass the anal beads to Kirsten Boyd J. She is posting now. Take your troubles over there, and thank you for joining me during this doofus-fest! — KL

    So this is that new "Human Centipede" movie I've been hearing about? It's even more disgusting than I expected.

  2. mumbly_joe

    20 years later, and Gingrich still just cold wants to jail his political opponents, for disagreeing with him.

    1. Omophagist

      Agreed. It's hard enough for her being the only remotely attractive important female politician in the world. Comparing her to Bachmann is a travesty, as if Bachmann had grown up in the Ukraine she would have ended up in an eastern European brothel decades ago.

  3. Tundra Grifter

    They can run this GNoP Perp Walk every night of the week until November 2012 – the party faithfull still won't like any of 'em.

    I am quite amused that getting into bed with the T-Baggers has turned out so poorly.

    And – even better – when the topic was Mr. Obama, they found all that "He's not a Christian" talk quite clever. Now that's being directed at Mitt and it suddenly doesn't seem so funny. The right wing nutz whine that Mr. Obama will make such a big deal out of Romney's religion.

    He doesn't have to. The evangelicals are carrying the water for him.

    How dare Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, uh, write legislation that passed our bicameral legislature with a majority vote and was signed into law by the President, as proscribed in the Constitution. WHY HAS NO ONE YET GONE TO PRISON FOR THIS??

    Herm, you seem like a good guy, but we already hired a colored fellow once and it just didn't work out.

    Michele doesn't want government appointees making medical decisions; that should be left to the for-profit insurance firms.

    Also, that is some of the awsomest wonderful blingee ever, Kirsten.
    We appreciate the effort even if KL hates it.

    Who are these economist advising Hermain Cain? Rich Lowry and some other guys; you wouldn't know them, they're Canadian, but they're totally real he doesn't want to name them.

    1. V572-⁂½‡‡‡‡‡

      Did you see Bruce Bartlett's takedown of Nah-yun, Nah-yun, Nah-yun in today's NYT? Epic.

        1. V572-⁂½‡‡‡‡‡

          Inside the Cain Tax PlanByBRUCE BARTLETTBruce Bartlettheld senior policy roles in the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations and served on the staffs of Representatives Jack Kemp and Ron Paul.With recent polls showing increased support forHerman Cainas theG.O.P.presidential nominee, attention is being drawn to his platform, especially what he calls the9-9-9 tax plan.News reportsdescribe it as a 9 percent tax rate on business and personal income, combined with a 9 percent national sales tax.Little detail has been released by the Cain campaign, so it’s impossible to do a thorough analysis. But using what is available on Mr. Cain’s Web site, I’m taking a stab at estimating its effects.First, the 9-9-9 plan is actually an intermediate step in Mr. Cain’s plan to overhaul the tax system and jump-start growth. Phase 1 would reduce individual and business taxes to a maximum of 25 percent, which I assume means reducing the top statutory tax rate to 25 percent from 35 percent.No mention is made on the site of a tax cut for those now in the 10 percent, 15 percent or 25 percent brackets. This means that the only people who would get a tax rate cut are those now in the 28 percent, 33 percent or 35 percent brackets. According to theJoint Committee on Taxation, only 4 percent of taxpayers pay any taxes at those rates.As for corporations, Mr. Cain’s proposal is primarily going to benefit those with revenues of more than $1 million a year, because they account for 98.7 percent of all receipts by C corporations. (A C corporation is a legal entity separate and distinct from its owners that is taxed as a corporation; its shareholders pay taxes individually on their gains.) Those companies with receipts over $50 million account for 88.8 percent of total receipts.Other business entities — sole proprietorships, S corporations (which have between 1 and 100 shareholders and pass through net income or losses to shareholders) and partnerships — would not benefit because they are not taxed on the corporate schedule. But they represent 92 percent of all businesses.Second, Mr. Cain would eliminate all taxes on profits earned by multinational corporations outside the United States. It’s hard to know the impact of this provision, but according toMartin Sullivan, an economist with Tax Analysts, the 50 largest corporations in the United States generated half of their profits in other countries.The actual benefit of Mr. Cain’s proposal would be much greater to many of them, because, according to Mr. Sullivan, while some of these 50 companies have no foreign operations, others derive 100 percent of their gross profits in foreign countries. In 2010 these included Philip Morris,PfizerandAbbott Laboratories.Third, Mr. Cain would abolish all taxes on capital gains. Such taxes typically generate more than $100 billion in federal revenue annually, according to theTax Policy Center. According to the Joint Committee on Taxation, two-thirds of all capital gains are reported by those with incomes over $1 million.Mr. Cain says these three proposals, which he would put into effect immediately without offsetting the lost revenue, will jump-start economic growth. He offers no evidence for this assertion; it is simply put forward as self-evident. But the experience of theGeorge W. Bush administrationwas that cuts in tax rates on the wealthy and on capital gains had no effect whatsoever on growth, according to theCongressional Research Service.And this is only Phase 1 of the Cain plan. In Phase 2, the payroll tax would be eliminated, causing more than $800 billion in revenue to evaporate. The estate and gift tax would be abolished, further reducing taxes on the wealthy. And the 9-9-9 plan would be implemented.It’s important to understand that the 9 percent rates on personal and business income would apply to very different tax bases than now exist. For individuals, the tax would apply to gross income less only the deduction for charitable contributions. No mention is made of a personal exemption.This means that the 47 percent of tax filerswho now pay no federal income taxeswill pay 9 percent on their total income. And elimination of the payroll tax won’t even help half of them because the earned income tax credit, which Mr. Cain would abolish, offsets both their income tax liability and their payroll tax payment as well.Additionally, everyone would now pay a 9 percent sales tax on all purchases. No mention is made of any exemptions from this tax, so we may assume that it will apply to food, medical care, rent, home and auto purchases and a wide variety of other expenditures now exempt from state sales taxes. This would increase their cost of living by 9 percent while, at the same time, the poor would pay income taxes.The business tax in the Cain plan bears no resemblance to the present corporate income tax. The tax would apply to gross sales less dividends paid and all purchases from other companies, including investment goods. Thus, there would be no deduction for wages.How benefits would be treated is unclear, because purchases of things like health insurance might constitute a purchase from another company and remain deductible. If so, what is to stop a company from paying its employees by leasing their cars and homes for them and even buying their food and clothing? That would reduce their taxable revenue.The abolition of any deduction for wages is likely to raise the cost of employing workers, even with abolition of the employers’ share of the payroll tax. And since the dividend deduction doesn’t appear to be related to profitability, companies could borrow to pay dividends and still get the deduction. Even a novice tax lawyer could easily make a tax shelter out of that.And here’s the kicker in the Cain plan. Phase 2 is merely a transition to yet another fundamental tax reform. In Phase 3, the United States would adopt the so-called Fair Tax, which would replace all federal taxes with a 30 percent sales tax on all goods and services. Ina previous post, I explained why the Fair Tax is a bad idea. I went into more detailin testimonybefore the House Ways and Means Committee on July 26.Whatever one thinks of the Fair Tax, it makes not the slightest bit of sense to have a plan that requires fundamental changes to the federal tax system twice to achieve its objective.Veterans of tax reform attempts in the United States know reform is very difficult and time-consuming even once. If the Fair Tax is a good idea, Mr. Cain ought to just do it, without confusing the issue with his unnecessary and highly complicated 9-9-9 plan. After all, one of the prime selling points of the Fair Tax is its simplicity, and the 9-9-9 plan is far from that.Because so little detail exists, it’s hard to do either a proper revenue estimate or distributional analysis of the Cain plan. It’s obvious, however, that Phase 1 would represent a huge tax cut for the wealthy at a time when federal revenues are at ahistorical lowas a share of the gross domestic product and the economy’s fundamental problem is a lack ofaggregate demand.Thus the Cain plan would increase the budget deficit without doing anything to stimulate demand, because rich people can already spend as much as they want and are unlikely to spend more even if their taxes are abolished.The poor and the middle class might increase their spending if they could keep more of their earnings, but they will unquestionably pay more under Phase 2 of the Cain plan. With no tax on capital gains, the rich would pay almost nothing, while elimination of all deductions and credits, as well as imposition of a national sales tax, must necessarily raise taxes on everyone else, especially those not now paying income taxes.At a minimum, the Cain plan is a distributional monstrosity. The poor would pay more while the rich would have their taxes cut, with no guarantee that economic growth will increase and good reason to believe that thebudget deficit will increase.Even allowing for the poorly thought through promises routinely made on the campaign trail, Mr. Cain’s tax plan stands out as exceptionally ill conceived.

          1. ThundercatHo

            Awesome. Now all we need is to be able to explain this to the populace in one sentence. Preferably using words of one syllable.

  14. weejee

    Charlie Rose & Karen Tumulty are asking oldes's questions. Julianna Goldman is the only one who's not collecting Social Security.

    1. weejee

      Yeppers! Mitttttt is fashioning and pummeling straw men in real time. Most of those rhetorical scarecrows have had little to no bearing on the question asked.

    2. io9k9s

      That's It! I can't stand the man, I felt terrible thinking it was because he is morman – nope its becuase to him we are too stupid to ask stupid questions so he just helps us along in the conversation. Thanks for clearing this up for me. Mitt is such a dick.

  15. EatsBabyDingos

    The group reminds me of the song "We Are the World," reworded as "We Are the Worms:"

    We are the worms
    Out on the pavement
    We hear a 'squish'
    And then turn to see where Cousin Dave went

    Sweaty, writhing worms. Worse if you have the mushrooms and someone says "what if they were naked."

  16. EatsBabyDingos

    So much about the number 9. It's like the Beatles White Album, except stupid and without music and it gives me a rash.

  17. JoshuaNorton

    Hey Herman. That's 1 plain cheese, 1 Very Veggie and 1 Meatlover's Special. Think you can handle that?

    Me neither.

  18. SorosBot

    Paul thinks it's unfortunate that we've been using Keynesian economics instead of Austrian school economics; even though the truth is the exact opposite, we've been using the bullshit Austrian economics since 1981 and they've failed because they don't work, while Keynesian economics ended the Depression and prevented any major recessions until that dipshit Reagan took over.

    1. weejee

      Too true Soros. But following modern con-venn-tion, the set of economic facts and the set of rethug sound bites rarely intersect.

    2. user-of-owls

      Keynesian economics ended the Depression and prevented any major recessions until that dipshit Reagan took over.

      That is quite simply Not True, Soros.

      Reagan was a stupid, evil cunt, not a dipshit.

  19. Indiepalin

    This is on the Bloomberg channel?! Nowhere else on TV? That ought to help them get their message out.

  20. user-of-owls

    The live feed for this on Al Jazeera is hilarious! At least I think so. Those squiggly lines in the subtitles look funny, so what they're saying must be too. Ergo proctor hoc sum cumma facto!

  21. io9k9s

    I can't hlep but notice that at the break, no one rushed to tell Ron Paul he mightwant to use the little boys rooms….

  22. EatsBabyDingos

    I can't tell if Ricky is worried about Reagan's "diary" or "diarrhea," not that there's much difference.

  23. SorosBot

    Balanced budget amendment, again? Try some ideas that aren't old failures that are incredibly stupid.

  24. V572-⁂½‡‡‡‡‡

    Why is Newt talking about amputations? Sure, it's one way to lose weight. But if he wants to get rid of that ugly fat, Callista would be a lot easier to get rid of.

    And Miche1e — that hairdo isn't working.

  25. Indiepalin

    Nevermind. Channel 353 on Direct TV. Just in time for Herman Cain's 999 bullshit.

    Thanks everybody

    1. V572-⁂½‡‡‡‡‡

      See my enormous response to Sorosbot above, a copyright-trampling ripoff of Bruce Bartlett's NYT takedown of Cain's nonsense.

  26. RadioOcupados

    The only thing that would make this more comical is if Charlie Manson was up there rambling.

  27. EatsBabyDingos

    They should test these ringwraiths for steroids, because this is industrial strength stupid.

  28. V572-⁂½‡‡‡‡‡

    Anybody who owns any stocks or mutual funds and can find a way to sell them tonight might want to do so, as the Slovaks nixed the euro bailout.

      1. V572-⁂½‡‡‡‡‡

        We didn’t have this kind of problem before the Pope or Reagan or fax machines or cheap bluejeans killed the Soviet Union.

    1. SorosBot

      Even better, it looks like it was nixed because member of the opposition party who supported the bailout went against it in order to force new elections; the whole thing was blocked because of Slovakian internal politics. And any Eurozone country can do this. Man, the setup of the Euro was ingenious; they're basically like the US under the Articles of Confederation.

      1. fishskicanoe

        Exactly right.

        Other than the weirdo Swiss has any country been able to pull off a confederation? Canada doesn't count as they are still officially the Queen's bitches.

        Or britches.

    2. io9k9s

      Thanks for the heads up….Gawd I hate to think of the smug look on the face of Ron Paul and the rest of the assholes watching this debate dreaming about their precious gold bricks going up in value…

  29. BlueStateLibel

    As if any of us actually want to subject ourselves to actually watching this – this is why we pay YOU Wonkette, to live blog it for us, whilst we sit cozy at home enjoying PBS and adult beverages.

  30. SorosBot

    Well, I can't get the feed to work anymore, period; it's been real, and Bloomberg sucks; I guess they didn't realize that some people would actually want to watch this thing and didn't give it enough bandwidth.

  31. user-of-owls

    Gotta give our Wonket credit. If there was ever a more appropriate ad to go with this debate than our enormous walls of anthrax, I'd like to see it.

  32. V572-⁂½‡‡‡‡‡

    All right folks, gotta go have dinner with the Italian princess. Snark on, and fire for effect!

  33. SharifDelMonte

    Is Rep. Bachmann wearing a pearl necklace? Its never too late in life to try something for the first time!

  34. OurHoboSenator

    As soon as this came back from break, my cats launched into a huge fight. I always suspected one of them was a Paultard.

  35. Katydid

    Slightly OT, but all this magic underwear reminds me…anyone ever think the words in "Southern Cross" were "I have been around the world,
    Lookin' for that Mormon girl,
    Who knows love can endure.
    And you know it will."

    I also thought the end was, "So we cheated and we lied
    And we tested
    And we never failed to fail
    It was the easiest thing to do.
    You will survive being vested."

      1. Katydid

        Hiya wee! As I just posted to Roscoe, I got a job in a corporate company, and they monitor Internet access. I read every day, though.

        How you guys doin'?

  36. OurHoboSenator

    No one cares how many kids you have, Shelly. I killed a spider the other night that had thousands of babies.

  37. Katydid

    Herb Cain is some kind of goddammed visionary…he'll appoint Alan Greenspan to the Fed! No one else coulda thought of that.

    Didn't Greenspan admit a few years ago that he was wrong about everything?

    Herb Cain really is a moron, isn't he?

  38. notreelyhelping

    Mittens integrity is such that he makes Bill Clinton sound like a cross between Diogenes, Lincoln, and Ghandi.

  39. DemonicRage

    Gingrich's equating some Commission's recommendation that men stop taking the PSA prostate test because it leads to unnecessary aggressive treatment….equating that to Sarah Palin's Death Panels was the highlight of the debate for me. It was so lame that, as your blogger noted, no one took him up on it….just looked the other way, embarrassed that he would stoop that low.

  40. Billmatic

    Michelle doesn't quite have the eastern bloc princess leia head braid thing; also she's not drop dead gorgeous like Tymoshenko. I should also point out that anyone going to prison in the Ukraine should be presumed innocent.
