Live Blooging The Last Death Rattle Of Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

best guyHey, so anybody able to get this fucker to load? No, right? HAHAHA, we just figured it out. Chicago is NOT ON EASTERN TIME MAYBE? So maybe it is one more hour before this bad boy starts? For sweet Jesus crying out loud. This is seriously going to cut into our Pimm’s cup and French dip time at Cole’s, which we’d thoughtfully scheduled for 90 minutes from now. Let’s all go do something else for a while, yes? See you back in like 45. Pfft.

7 PM Whatever time: Are we ready to rumble? NOT ANYMORE.

7:01 PM — So is there a goddamn debate or is this their regular newscast? Anybody else ready to scrape this ridiculous waste of pixels from the Internet? Ooh, a weather report.

7:05 PM — Pretty sure the moderator just described Joe Walsh as a high school dropout.

7:05 PM Also — Five bucks says Joe Walsh, when answering “something nice” says he totally respects her Purple Heart band-aid.

7:06 PM — Everyone send us five dollars right now please, as we win. You may send it care of PayPal, rebecca at wonkette dot com.

7:07 PM — Joe Walsh explains that when President Obama was elected, everybody freaked out. That is remarkably accurate! But he says it’s because “government had gotten so big.” That is not!

7:08 PM — Moderator: Tammy Duckworth, in what way will you fuck the Democratic Party should this Democratic district send you to Washington? (BIPARTISANLY FUCK YOUR PARTY, of course.)

7:16 PM — Nothing against whatever words Tammy is saying, but have you all asked Jasmine in the forum chatroom a question yet? They might even ask it on air! Here, we will start: “Congressman Walsh, where will you sleep when you no longer have a Washington office? Will you be homeless like your starving homeless children what got no clothes or food?”

7:17 PM — Oh, Tammy calls the $716 billion lie! And the moderator follows up by asking how the $716 billion in Medicare savings is different from Paul Ryan’s $716 billion cut in savings. Has the moderator not understood that is the worst thing a moderator can ever do, is follow up a question? BURN THE MODERATOR!

7:18 PM — Ooh, and Tammy with the “Wall Street Journal calls the Ryan Plan ‘ending Medicare as we know it.’” Which Joe apparently voted for three times. And the moderator is all like OH IT IS TIME TO MOVE ON.

5:19 PM — Fuckin’ sick of the Time Nazi moderators, we really truly are.

5:20 PM — Moderator: Joe Walsh, how far can you get your tongue up Simpson’s and Bowles’ asses? Let us all talk about the deficit for EVER and EVER please!

5:22 PM — Jesse says over on the Tweeter that Ohio Treasurer and Senate candidate Josh Mandel just picked up Romney’s ‘single mothers cause Columbine’ line. That sounds just exactly like what Josh Mandel would do. Man, I wish we were watching that. That guy is hilarious.

7:26 PM — Moderator: Joe Walsh, are you sorry you are constantly yelling at your constituents, all the time, forever, because of how you are a dick?

7:28 PM — Wow! Moderator: Tammy Duckworth, do you overplay your injuries? Can I get you a band-aid for your missing legs?

7:30 PM — Show of hands: Who thinks Tammy Duckworth deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for not murdering the moderator with one finger to the throat?

7:37 PM — Of course Joe Walsh doesn’t believe in any abortions ever, no matter what, never no. Otherwise, he would not be able to continue having children he doesn’t support!

7:40 PM — We weren’t listening, is it over? Are they doing sports and weather after the break? It is over! Yasmin in the chat room confirms it! Well Tommy Thompson just called Tammy Baldwin “Joe Biden” and told her to shut up, over on the SPAN. You guys go ahead. We are going to commit seppuku in regret over the lousiness of this live-bloog. Then we are going to Cole’s for a Pimm’s cup.

 

Hola wonkerados.

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

Lock and load!

JustPixelz October 18, 2012 at 7:32 pm

with our votes!

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 7:06 pm

Somebody has been nipping at the legal marijuana a little early. "Nipping" is what one does to buds, right?

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 7:24 pm

Snipping.

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Ooof! The s is silent!

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 7:35 pm

Sibilants are NEVER silent, dear Boojum. Only Booja.

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 7:39 pm

Sally sells sibilants to the sycophants on the seashore, seriously.

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 7:07 pm

He's going for three!

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Rebecca, I think we have a private chat room. Does it seem that way to you?

snowpointsecret October 18, 2012 at 7:08 pm

So it's now at the exact same time as the other debate. No matter, we all know there are binders full of women that are ready to vote against Joe Walsh anyway.

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 7:10 pm

Oh hi, welcome to my fantasy.

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 7:09 pm

So, there was this one time, when I was a boy, and I was live blooging some catfish out of the pond. We wore onions on our belts, which was the fashion at the time….

memzilla October 18, 2012 at 7:14 pm

How many bees for an onion back then?

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 7:18 pm

Onions, which were the fashion for belts, were worn sideways, so that you could stick bees in the bottom. We called nickels bees back then, because they had bees on the front.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 7:37 pm

I don't think I like the idea of anyone sticking bees in my bottom, thank you very much.

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 7:40 pm

Well now, have you tried it?

shelwood46 October 18, 2012 at 9:29 pm

I have rheumatoid arthritis. I cannot count how many numbnuts have seriously recommended to me that I voluntarily allow me to be stung many, many times by bees (they don't really care if it's in the butt or whatever). Because apparently excruciating pain would, i don't know, take my mind off my chronic pain? These people are insane.

imobannon October 18, 2012 at 7:09 pm

Is it going to be on any of the CSPANs?

memzilla October 18, 2012 at 7:11 pm

"Time Zones?" Sounds like some fancy Yuruppeen Soshlust invention…

commiegirl99 October 18, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Don't ask me, I'm fucking useless apparently.

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 7:15 pm

I think I must have won some sort of prize, for getting all of the first four comments. Of course, like all Wonkette prizes, it will be a ticket for a chance to win a raffle held last month for the left over can of hobo beans.

rocktonsam October 18, 2012 at 7:44 pm

lucky duck

bikerlaureate October 18, 2012 at 11:20 pm

A whole can?

Mmmmmm

snowpointsecret October 18, 2012 at 7:16 pm

The perils of living in a wide country, apparently.

Oh well, I guess that puts this at the same time as the one I'm interested in but you can't win them all right?

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 7:24 pm

Oh, no, no, no, no, no … yes.

GemlikeFlame October 18, 2012 at 8:51 pm

Vicar of Dibley, Dawn French, classic.

Alice: Well the pregnancy test said I'm not pregnant. The hamster didn't turn blue.
Geraldine: I'm sorry, I don't think I'm familiar with that particular test.
Alice: Oh yes, it's very common in Dibley. You go out and you buy a hamster, and you wee on it. And if it turns blue, you're pregnant.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 10:08 pm

Clearly, I need to watch this after all.

starfanglednut October 18, 2012 at 10:14 pm

Oh, VOD is wonderful.

Cody October 18, 2012 at 7:41 pm

uh, you must be important here

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 7:46 pm

Commiegirl? I should fucking think so.

Boojum October 18, 2012 at 7:56 pm

Um, she's our Editrix. We lurves her for her scintillating prose, Apollonian wit, and boobies.

She also carries the ban-hammer, Mjolniritrix.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Not everybody remembers that goddamn hammer's name, lemmetellya.

HistoriCat October 19, 2012 at 5:24 pm

Some of us just have trouble spelling it.

GemlikeFlame October 18, 2012 at 9:01 pm

The Apollonian wit via Asgard? Thor was a good boy, but about as dumb as a box of Mjolnirs.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 10:09 pm

It's amazing how much trivia one can pick up during a measles-and-chickenpox-infected childhood, innit?

James Michael Curley October 18, 2012 at 7:42 pm

We love you anyway and you can learn to do the dishes.

starfanglednut October 18, 2012 at 10:15 pm

We can even send her home at 5 so she can cook dinner!

bikerlaureate October 18, 2012 at 11:21 pm

5 Eastern, or 5 Pacific?

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 11:21 pm

THERE you are at last.

I loved that. Does he know that many working women grab take-out en route to their single or one-parent-family dwellings? Fucking troglodytes, the lot of 'em.

Veritas78 October 18, 2012 at 7:52 pm

This "useless" fellow—so he's a lucky man, no? Let us know how the fucking commences.

Chet Kincaid_ October 18, 2012 at 8:05 pm

Don't be modest! You prevent this place from breaking down into feudal anarchy, with roving packs of cliques snarking on the weak, and waves of rogue Brazilian Samba Schools threatening our tenuous hold on civilization with their Angolan rhythms and twitching thongs. And you buy us beer.

emmelemm October 18, 2012 at 8:58 pm

Amen.

Barrelhse October 18, 2012 at 9:17 pm

Maybe we should have one of those "sit with someone you don't like" lunch days here.

Designer_Rants October 18, 2012 at 10:17 pm

I don't like all those furrener trolls that came and wrote messican wurds the other day. I'm gonna call the Family Research Council if you make me sit with them.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 11:22 pm

Hey, who you callin' a furrene … oh, right.

Never mind, then. As you were.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 18, 2012 at 9:09 pm

Thank you, Rebecca!

Crank_Tango October 18, 2012 at 9:18 pm

Just pretend you're enjoying it, I'm almost there.

fuflans October 18, 2012 at 10:11 pm

never dearest rebecca. you are our wonkette.

also i hope you are at cole's and i am so jealous for french dip and pimm's cup.

jqheywood October 19, 2012 at 12:07 am

Two thoughts:
1. Who's useless?
2. Pics, or GTFO

vtxmcrider October 19, 2012 at 6:28 am

Not true. There are people who fap to your picture on a regular basis.

memzilla October 18, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Ha Ha! It's never too early to wish that Joe "No Child Support For You!" Walsh gets verbally bitchslapped into a drooling coma.

Steverino247 October 18, 2012 at 11:08 pm

Oooooh! I like that one.

Jus_Wonderin October 19, 2012 at 6:54 am

That recipe? With or without votes?

MissTaken October 18, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Time Zones are a commie-socialist plot of the UN trying to take over our clocks. Standard Time FOREVAH bitches!

Time Zone Defense libel!!!

Metric time! No more of this Sumerian base 12 crap. Or seven days per week because people saw 7 things flying around in the sky.

Swatch beat.

FeloniousMonk October 18, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Right. It's now 11:58 PM Greenwich Mean Time.

Barrelhse October 18, 2012 at 9:21 pm

The rest of the fucking world can get with it and run on AMERICAN BUSINESS HOURS, for chrisake.

sullivanst October 18, 2012 at 10:20 pm

Zulu libel!

sbj1964 October 18, 2012 at 7:14 pm

This election will really be about girl power.I hope she go's all Xena on his ass!

Gleem McShineys October 18, 2012 at 7:17 pm

One bloog, 2 cups!
Pimms #1 Cup, and Walsh had better wear a cup.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Put on your toe shoes, girls, and see if you can connect with his nads.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 18, 2012 at 7:18 pm

How many debates are scheduled to start next hour?

snowpointsecret October 18, 2012 at 7:20 pm

This one, Ohio Senate, I think Virginia Senate… I think Missouri Senate as well?

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 18, 2012 at 7:25 pm

And Wishconshin. We will destroy the interwebs!

James Michael Curley October 18, 2012 at 7:43 pm

AOT, K!

Jus_Wonderin October 19, 2012 at 6:56 am

I bet we can shorten that more, now, to simply "K!"

James Michael Curley October 19, 2012 at 7:17 am

Then everyone will thing they wandered into “The Breakfast Club.”

Fox n Fiends October 18, 2012 at 7:21 pm

I can't wait to see how Conservatives hate the military today!

docterry6973 October 18, 2012 at 8:42 pm

They love the Military, and the Industrial Complex too. It is individual soldiers that they regard with contempt.

Steverino247 October 18, 2012 at 11:10 pm

That's a goddamn fact.

Fred_Wertham_Jr October 18, 2012 at 7:22 pm

Just think how much better this liveblog will be with the extra prep time. If you don't pass out.

BlueStateLibel October 18, 2012 at 7:22 pm

If you were a Windows machine like Mitt Rmoney, this debacle wouldn't have happened, because you would have been automatically updated!

starfanglednut October 18, 2012 at 10:18 pm

Probably a mac. Typical libunatic.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 7:23 pm

Aw, fuck, Editrix, man! I brought all my shit upstairs HOURS ago!

Joshua Norton October 18, 2012 at 7:25 pm

Hmmm. Pimm's Cup. Is that the one made with cucumbers?

If so, why?

Designer_Rants October 18, 2012 at 10:19 pm

It's Health Food!

rocktonsam October 18, 2012 at 7:27 pm

gonna pass on this one. Tammy is genuine and a hero and will serve this country with integrity. I will not watch that douche bag Walsh for all tea in China buddy.

The best part of him rolled down his mama'a leg.

fuck him also

Barrelhse October 18, 2012 at 9:27 pm

I suppose; but as for me, I don't like the guy at all.

OneYieldRegular October 18, 2012 at 7:28 pm

A Pimm's Cup and FDSammich at Cole's sounds SO good right now, but I don't think I could enjoy it even there with Screamy Gesticulator yelling from the screen.

MistaEko October 18, 2012 at 7:31 pm

So the Tigers are 2 outs away from sweeping the Yankees. Are you saying this debate thing is supposed to be a bigger blowout?

memzilla October 18, 2012 at 7:32 pm

O/T: Bruce and Bill are campaigning for President oBAM!a in Ohio. Parallelally speaking, the Rethuglican analogue would be GW Shrub and Ted Nugent, but for some reason… that's not being scheduled anywhere…

snowpointsecret October 18, 2012 at 7:33 pm

John Glenn's come out for Obama too. They're really bringing out the big guns here.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 18, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Lindsey Graham, John McCain and Ron Johnson are all campaigning in WI for Tommy Thompson today. There's some exciting star power for ya!

James Michael Curley October 18, 2012 at 7:46 pm

The Boss and the Big Dawg. A lot of the ladies (and many guys) gonna wake up in the middle of the night wondering, "That hasn't happened since I was twelve."

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Mainly because they will come to at some ungodly hour somewhere up on a tree or roof, sans pants. I notice you didn't mention THAT little detail!

James Michael Curley October 18, 2012 at 8:09 pm

BT-DTBut hey, I bought khakis!

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 9:14 pm

Me too. Youth. It's wasted on the young.

starfanglednut October 18, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Hahahahaha, fuckin' Christie must be eating his shorts. And all his other clothing. With mayonaise.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 11:24 pm

I thought that was a given.

Fairtackle October 18, 2012 at 7:34 pm

"Tammy Duckworth's mechanical legs", that is my new expression for everything

e.g. Tammy Duckworths;'s mechanical legs! that was some fine tartar sauce!

By Tammy Duckworth's mechanical legs, I'll see you rot in hell for this day's work!
etc.

Grabthar's hammer?

MistaEko October 18, 2012 at 7:36 pm

If this ever reaches anyone – in an life-imitates-life-lessons kinda thing – fucking with the Brazilians last week has given my account the herp. It's not an all consuming herp, mind you, in fact sometimes it's not a problem during the day hours, but at night I am always finding myself deleted by the admin. I just wanted to have a little fun on a Saturday night.

Poindexter718 October 18, 2012 at 7:42 pm

No Pimms cup or white shoes after Labor Day, editrix.
Then again, maybe it's still summer in the central time zone.

ranchandsyrup October 18, 2012 at 7:45 pm

fucking time zones? How do they work? Someone get ICP on the case.

Bamz, of course! We have to roll back the evil tide.

Chet Kincaid_ October 18, 2012 at 7:48 pm

Chicago is in the same time zone as most of Mexico, and for good reason.

Chicago is in whatever muthaf*kin time zone the muthaf*kin Mayor wants it to be in!

I'm Rahm Emanuel and I approve this muthaf*kin message.

Make it rain!
Report back here and I'll give you a cookie.

finallyhappy October 18, 2012 at 8:54 pm

I just gave her some cash. I do not need a cookie though, my husband made brownies tonight!

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 9:15 pm

I wish my husband would. Fucker can bake up a storm, when he wants.

glasspusher October 18, 2012 at 9:57 pm

What does he usually make for dinner? Reservations? Schwing!

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 10:12 pm

I'm the cook, he's the baker. I have a slapdash approach to cooking. He's an engineer/mathematician/scientist and tends to measure things in precise quantities.

James Michael Curley October 18, 2012 at 9:24 pm

Good, I’ve kicked in some money several times. I don’t live near her but I support her because of her commitments to veterans and veterans’ policies. The veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan are starting to serve in Congress. Since the wars have gone on for so long, some of them are into their fourth and fifth term. Those who have been elected have predominantly been supporters of Democratic Party policies and ran as Democrats. Now when a few are running as Republicans (witness Alan West) it will be interesting to continue to see how they will address the massive cuts to veterans benefits, the big increases to Tri-Care military family co-pays for health care they received 100% free before Dubya became President and appointing Department of Veterans Affairs appointees who not only implement reduced benefits and care but continue to do many care requirements on the cheap.

We've got Daschle protege Matt Varilek debating Kristi Noem at 8 Central, too, in the SoDak.

Is it OK to scream "Beat her ass" at the top of one's lungs?

dial_m October 18, 2012 at 9:54 pm

Hope so – I already did that whole gobs of times.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 10:13 pm

So? Who won?

dial_m October 18, 2012 at 10:48 pm

Kids went on strike and demanded motherly attention. o.0 I'll go ahead and say Varilek. :)

I like Chicago but no way in hell could I handle their weather.

But dammit, now I have a craving for deep dish pizza…

Zachary's, if you can find one nearby.

They're in the Bay Area and I'm down in LA. Damn, now I miss San Francisco…

"We have a question from Callyson: Mr Walsh, why do you hate veterans?"

"Mr. Walsh, why do you hate your kids?"

I'd really like to see him respond to that one.

Can you set it up? I will pay munniez.

First the Taco John's, then the wine (from a box, no less). Bring it on, JW!

Box wine is where it's at!! Carlo Rossi Vinter's Reserve – it's cheap, tasty, and keeps fresh forevah – yeah baby!!

memzilla October 18, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Only two more minutes left to break teh Intertubez, Editrix!

It's on!

Cigarettes booze and gambling–now I know why Wonkette is liveblogging *this* debate…

Oh crap, Tammy has to share the stage with local news? Yawn…

If you have sammiches, yes.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Once she comes out, we hustles her into the kitchen. She makes sammiches.

starfanglednut October 18, 2012 at 10:24 pm

Gotta let her go home at 5, though.

Finally, the death match is on…

rocktonsam October 18, 2012 at 8:04 pm

I'm watching the other Tammy, in Wisconsin debating old drunky Tommy.

MITTENS AND TOMMY HAVE CAUGHT UP YOU GUYS THEY NEED OUR HELP!

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 8:07 pm

Sent her a few bucks yesterday–hope it helps.

rocktonsam October 18, 2012 at 8:10 pm

cool, thanks!

commiegirl99 October 18, 2012 at 8:11 pm

Should we switch over? Is it any good?

rocktonsam October 18, 2012 at 8:13 pm

yes she has called out Tommy for TELLING LIES

rocktonsam October 18, 2012 at 8:15 pm

You get channel 21 in your parts?

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Geezus! I read that as "in your pants"!

So did I, man, so did I.

Geezus? Wouldn't the appropriate exclamation be "Balls"? The hell, man?

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 11:53 pm

WAUSAU, Wis. — Wisconsin GOP Senate candidate Tommy Thompson sold his stock in companies that do business with Iran on Thursday, after The Huffington Post reported his significant investments.

Oh crap, I hope that deadbeat does not hog the air time…

He worked with (fellow?) dropouts.

snowpointsecret October 18, 2012 at 8:06 pm

Josh Mandel attacking "career politicians", ignoring that he started campaigning for this right after he got the treasurer seat. Already brought out the lie about "raising Ohio's credit rating" too. This is pretty painful already.

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 8:06 pm

"Campaigns can get personal"

No, fucker, *candidates* can *choose* to get personal–and you are Exhibit A for that…

Asshole.

Steel-toed votes. (This being a blue collar state.)

Hey, DbB, long time no see! Can I rub your bald head for good luck?

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 8:08 pm

"I think that as a country we need to get educated"

Patronizing much?

Biel_ze_Bubba October 18, 2012 at 8:08 pm

A "timeout" when Obama was elected? Not even waiting to see what he did? I wonder why?

She's talking about cuts to military contractors, big pharma, and oil co.'s. Walsh – eliminate capital gains. Christ, he's a Koch drone.

Joe Walsh is coming out and saying that he wants to get rid of the guaranteed benefit of Medicare. Yeah, that'll go over well with the oldz…

And all the food in the fridge ain't gonna eat itself.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 10:54 pm

Man. Trying to feed two teenage boys is enough to put ANYbody in the poorhouse. Those guys could wipe out an entire loaf of bread for breakfast. With butter, jam, cheese, eggs, milk, cereal, and fruit. Like feeding the fucking elephants at the zoo.

Steverino247 October 18, 2012 at 11:20 pm

Raised two with Mrs. Steverino and you forgot to include their football teammates in that count of elephants.

orygoon October 18, 2012 at 11:26 pm

It was the funniest damned thing when mine turned into teenagers. They were the pickiest kids ever that trod the earth when small–pickier than I was when I was a kid, and that's saying something. Both of them, even though they tried hard not to be like each other in any way. Couldn't take them anywhere, they were so bad, and offended all my friends. But they they got biggish. And they got hungry, man. They had their fucking grilled cheese sammiges or whatever, but I started to notice that The Heir was watching Mr. Goon and me eating. Every night. Real food–enchiladas, or curries, or, you know, something with mushrooms on it. He watched us eat. Hungrily. Next think you know, he's eating it all. Then a few years later? The Spare, ditto. Amazing how that works, although I do know some grownup people (mostly men, but also my aunt Karen) who still eat like children–no veggies, no onions, no mushrooms, no spices, etc. etc.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 8:28 pm

Geezus, this fucker JoeWalsh is starting to sound downright treacly. Ew.

imissopus October 18, 2012 at 8:28 pm

Also, let's note that the two Columbine shooters came from two-parent households. Sigh.

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 8:28 pm

Overplaying your wounds…oh, fuck anyone who says that.

Oh, it came from Walsh–go figure,

memzilla October 18, 2012 at 8:28 pm

"Overplaying her military service?" WTF?!

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 8:29 pm

Chicago Tribune endorsed Tammy–good.

snowpointsecret October 18, 2012 at 8:30 pm

"Waaaah Brown attacked me" while attacking himself. He also seems to only have three things to say. "Washington insiders", "Brown attacks me", and "bailouts are all evil." This is getting ugly quickly, Brown's getting more rude as well as he gets more annoyed at dealing with Mandel.

No talk about God though, so I guess we win so far!

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 8:30 pm

I suspect if there weren't witnesses, Ms. Duckworth would already have choked the living shit out of Walsh, with votes.

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 8:31 pm

Tammy volunteers to serve in Iran. Way to highlight Walsh's wimpiness…hee hee hee…

snowpointsecret October 18, 2012 at 8:32 pm

Mandel has literally said "career politicians" 11 times in 31 minutes. Brown bringing up Ronald Reagan to help Obama. This is seriously the most bizarre debate I've seen…

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 18, 2012 at 8:32 pm

Walsh sez we should you drones "abroad". What not at your house?

weejee October 18, 2012 at 8:34 pm

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 9:26 pm

Joe smells like old cheese. She is being polite.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 10:55 pm

HouseOfTheBlueLights October 18, 2012 at 8:40 pm

Not even Joe's mother really likes Joe.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 10:56 pm

After listening to him whine, I can't blame her. If he was this way from the time he popped out of the cooch, I'm sure she has plenty of reason to fucking hate him by now.

Negropolis October 18, 2012 at 10:00 pm

So, she has something in common with 99.99% of Americans. Good.

Man, what do they charge for that? Cause the football season is a quarter over and they still want full price for that Red Zone channel.

Life of a woman is not an exception? Um, what?

Pants on fire…

sullivanst October 18, 2012 at 10:02 pm

"Two deaths are better than one" is official Catholic doctrine. Is Walsh a Papist?

chascates October 18, 2012 at 8:37 pm

Take a look at Breitbart.com later. That wonderful new film 'Hating Breitbart' debuts tomorrow and they'll have to spend half of their sites propping up that tower of bullshit.

snowpointsecret October 18, 2012 at 8:37 pm

Moderator: "You're over time, senator."
Brown: "I'm sorry." *stops right away*
Mandel: "Calm down, senator."
Crowd: "Boooooooo."
Moderator: "No reactions, please."

Is everyone going to end this in a riot? Throwing votes at each other, of course?

commiegirl99 October 18, 2012 at 8:51 pm

Where you watching? It's not on my SPAN

snowpointsecret October 18, 2012 at 8:53 pm

It's on a local station, a spinoff of a local CBS affilate. I'm not sure where the livestream is, but it's ending now, sadly… There's a third debate coming next week, I'm sure, so I'll look.

James Michael Curley October 18, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Good, that little attempt at a Romney ploy caused Brown to address him as Senator.
Rule number one of prepping a challenger who will debate an incumbent:
AVOID USING HIS TITLE!
Exception to the rule: Always use Mr. President and never anything else when addressing the President in a debate or you face turning off people who have respect for the President regardless on his policies.

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 9:38 pm

I fucking HATE it when people try to pull a power play by telling someone to calm down. I make it a point to *really* act like a bitch when someone tries that crap with me. Too bad Brown couldn't have done the same…

sullivanst October 18, 2012 at 10:31 pm

Thankfully it's been a while since my step-daughter told my wife to calm down. That always used to be the most effective way to turn raised voices into nuclear screaming matches.

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 8:37 pm

YES! Tammy did not let that asshole interrupt her!

And why am I not surprised he's one of those legitimate rape assholes?

Zango Crudmonger October 18, 2012 at 8:37 pm

Rape! Drink! Are we drinking to capped rape language?

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 8:38 pm

Oh, I have a ragefest now…my poor dogs are looking at me with a worried expression on their faces. I'd better duck out and give them an extra walk once these two are done…

memzilla October 18, 2012 at 8:41 pm

"If it makes her so mad, why does she keep watching it?"

Sharkey October 18, 2012 at 8:45 pm

"Perhaps she needs medical care. Woof."

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 9:32 pm

Poor li'l puppers! Give their ears an extra rub for me.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 8:38 pm

Yeah, Tammy! She got in quick shiv on the wonderful health care the Senator has (Mark Kirk).

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 18, 2012 at 8:38 pm

"Hawaii" drink?

Close_Read October 18, 2012 at 8:39 pm

That was it?

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 8:39 pm

Shit, I didn't know Tammy was on food stamps when she was a kid–so was I! Now I am *really* glad I sent her a few bucks!

OK, I'll circle back and read everyone's snark in a few minutes…

Sharkey October 18, 2012 at 8:39 pm

So they had congenial relations?!?

Here's hoping there's a process server delivering child support papers who is standing just outside the studio and will give Joe a big hand.

James Michael Curley October 18, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Unfortunately I think that particular contempt citation has been settled although at the point he still is 'negotiating' whether his overall support requirements are proper.

snowpointsecret October 18, 2012 at 8:40 pm

"We don't want our health care to be like it is in Europe or Canada."

How would Mandel know at all? He hasn't been in this state continually for long at all. Ugh this is really ugly now.

chascates October 18, 2012 at 8:51 pm

I'd be tickled shitless if I had healthcare like those unfortunates in either Canada or Europe.

docterry6973 October 18, 2012 at 8:56 pm

The hell I don't. The oligarchs hope and pray that Americans never realize how good the Canadians, Swedes, and Germans have it.

James Michael Curley October 18, 2012 at 9:00 pm

I wish I had gone on a Canadian or European healthcare program twenty-five years ago. Then my life expectancy would not be 38th in the world and below Macau, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Chili and Cuba.

sullivanst October 18, 2012 at 10:12 pm

I had shorter average wait times to see my NHS Doctor for free than I do for the one I have to pay a small fortune for the privilege of being unable to get an appointment with and having to take the PA instead here. I'd much prefer European or Canadian healthcare.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 10:40 pm

When Romney starts yawping about how anybody can go to the ER to get health care he has no idea that a visit to the ER can last for 24 hours or more, because of triage. The patients with, you know, bleeding gunshot wounds, sucking chest wounds, severed arteries, missing limbs, and Code Blues tend to be seen first. I have to call my (gold-plated expensive insurance plan network) doctor up to 3 weeks in advance for an appointment. As I pointed out to his minions, illnesses do not usually schedule advance appointments. And after 3 weeks of needing medical services, I'll be either cured or dead. Health care in many Third World countries is better than this.

sullivanst October 18, 2012 at 11:12 pm

Yeah, that bullshit from Mitt was outrageous. Didn't he falsely assert that the hospital or government would just eat the cost of an ER visit, too? WRONG! The patient will get the bill, if they can't pay they'll be forced into bankruptcy, the bill collectors will extract whatever blood they can from the stone, some states will than have an uncompensated care pool which might cough up a few pennies, and then the remainder of the balance will be passed on to the insurance companies in the form of higher rates. But all this only after the lucky few who escape the ER alive are harassed to the point they wish they hadn't.

Plus also too, EMTALA basically only requires the ER to do the minimum necessary to make sure you don't die on their doorstep after they dump you there. They will not provide ongoing care for chronic conditions like COPD, HIV, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure or cancer – conditions where the prognosis is dramatically different if they are treated on an ongoing basis versus allowing them to bring you right to death's door.

And don't even get me started on parking or ambulance volleyball.

What I'm saying is, Mitt can go fuck himself with a large cactus covered in Dave's Ultimate Insanity Sauce.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 11:54 pm

That parking link didn't work dood.

But I have some very hot sauce from Trinidad I can lend you. And my neighbour has cacti.

Close_Read October 18, 2012 at 8:41 pm

It took me all this time to figure out what that annoying clicky sound was.

Care to share? Kept hearing it myself.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 18, 2012 at 8:47 pm

live chat thingy.

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 9:39 pm

Yeah, it got on my nerves also, but I didn't hear it as much as the debate went on.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 18, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Tommy's drunk. Can't say "Libya".

snowpointsecret October 18, 2012 at 8:46 pm

Mandel is a supporter of marriage between one man and one woman. However, he says he'll represent everyone. He also called vegetarians a religion…

Brown supports giving equal rights to everyone.

Sorry about going off about Ohio here, I've got it on live TV here and it's still quite important.

finallyhappy October 18, 2012 at 8:56 pm

what a moron- Vegetarians aren't a religion- Pastafarians are- plus Mandel is an idiot homophobe and I hereby place him under Herem

MosesInvests October 18, 2012 at 9:40 pm

Got the declaration written out in ATBa"SH?

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 18, 2012 at 8:59 pm

thank you for updating us. I was trying to watch 2 at once. erf.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 18, 2012 at 8:58 pm

At the very end of the WI debate, Tommy and Tammy shook hands. Tommy then immediately wiped his hand on his pants bcz he had touched a ghey.

Callyson October 18, 2012 at 9:41 pm

Oh. My. God.

PLEASE tell me the camera got a good shot of that! Because that is the sort of thing that moves mushy middle voters away from a candidate…

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 18, 2012 at 9:59 pm

upon further review, it appears he's just hitching up his pants. It looked like he was wiping his hand when I saw it live. fast forward to about minute 56. http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/WisconsinSenat

OzoneTom October 18, 2012 at 9:47 pm

Wait — are all Tammy's ghey or what?

Humberto_Echo October 18, 2012 at 9:01 pm

Joe Walsh remind me of a tape worm – but without the charm.

James Michael Curley October 18, 2012 at 9:25 pm

But he has the teeth.

natl_[redacted]_cmdr October 18, 2012 at 10:00 pm

Tommy Thompson reminds me of a drunk, but without the charm.

Beowoof October 18, 2012 at 9:01 pm

I couldn't watch either one. Not because Tommy and Joe would make me gag, rather I was out working to get Louise Slaughter reelected. I feel better about myself now.

James Michael Curley October 18, 2012 at 9:10 pm

Good, I thought with North Buffalo and Rochester still in the district her reelection had a pretty chance but I guess she is being pelted with rocks from people who have lost their sources for insider trading info. Still think it should have been called the "Protect Tom Delay's Deep Pockets but Fuck Martha Stewart Act."

Beowoof October 18, 2012 at 9:42 pm

She is having a tough fight, Karl Rove's American Crossroads PAC has called her every name in the book over the last week on the local TV shows. They are even running that crap during football games. There is lots of outside money making local broadcasters happy. So if you're in the area, and need some lawn signs etc, we can get them for you. Want to make some calls, I can hook you up with her team, which is an awesome group.

James Michael Curley October 19, 2012 at 12:16 am

I’m in NJ but appreciate your information. I am doing work for three candidates while still trying to survive soon to be implemented company closing. So I can’t take on any extra tasks.

MittBorg October 18, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Good on ya! Priorities, man.

Come here a minute October 18, 2012 at 9:01 pm

Oh wow, Tammy Baldwin and Tammy Duckworth are two different people. The more you know.

How many legs do they have, between them?

James Michael Curley October 18, 2012 at 9:28 pm

They wouldn't qualify for the Three Legged Race at the Congressional Picnic.

Mittens tithing BURN, five kids, dad's from Mexico – sure you're not Catholic?

snowpointsecret October 18, 2012 at 9:08 pm

According to wikipedia about the last Ohio debate, which was like the 12th place I checked but the first to have any sort of information:

A debate will take place Thursday, October 25 at 7 p.m. in Cincinnati. NBC White House Correspondent Chuck Todd will moderate the debate with anchor/political reporter Colleen Marshall from WCMH in Columbus, anchor Sheree Paolello from WLWT in Cincinnati, and political reporter Tom Beres from WKYC in Cleveland. It will be broadcast live on all Ohio NBC affiliates.

I'd be shocked if there weren't livestreams on NBC affiliate websites for that on one of the nine stations…

docterry6973 October 18, 2012 at 9:14 pm

Chuckles Todd as moderator? Be still my heart! The candidates will have a hard time getting any camera time with that doofus on the stage.

DustyBowlBlues October 18, 2012 at 9:10 pm

Two operating system upgrades, a $100 investment in computer shit and two fake identities later, I'm back on the wonket. I was not banned, according to our esteemed editor. Intense Debate sucks. I think I was building up too many pees and they were determined to humble me, so ID took them all away.

Mitt Romney has declared that on Day One he will eliminate the costly artificial limbs given to veterans and replace them with pegs. In an effort to provide the job training for veterans the Republican House voted down last month Mitt Romney will teach them to whittle the pegs themselves.

FeloniousMonk October 18, 2012 at 9:53 pm

I came expecting light-hearted snark, and got a bellyful of Dean Swift. Makes for a more somber evening than I expected.

Steverino247 October 18, 2012 at 11:18 pm

You're not exaggerating by much. Fortunately, the VA hires a lot of vets who will find creative ways to steal shit so that doesn't happen.

James Michael Curley October 19, 2012 at 12:23 am

Time to start reminding people that not only did I serve in Vietnam, but I worked in the post office before that.Still, it’s a sad story if one finds that some guy or gal who had a leg blown off needs to sneak into a closet to be able to walk like a man again.Guys I talked to last month were telling me the wait for prosthetics is four or five months then a couple weeks delay before serious therapy started.

Steverino247 October 19, 2012 at 1:27 am

Depends on where you are. Some of the prosthetists are themselves "customers" and if they think the parts are going to disappear, I'm sure they'll start squirreling parts away for future use. I was an expert scrounger in the Army, a skill which has amazed more than one civilian supervisor since.

Sup: "Where did you get that?!"
S247: "Do you really need to know?"
Sup: "Uh, no. I don't think I do."
S247: "Good. Then you might get other hard-to-find objects arriving in the office from time to time."

Oh, and welcome home to you, Sir.

James Michael Curley October 19, 2012 at 5:52 am

I had to fight with the XO to be able to stop flying even though the Army decided I couldn’t pass a flight physical because I had no depth perception (still don’t). When they took me off daily rotation they put me in the helicopter parts department with a WO I knew from the states who was on his second or third tour and well versed in the arts of back door supply. When he went MIA I found myself in de facto command of a platoon of one with people from all over I corps who did not want the system to close down. I was short and decided I had to close the operation down when a guy shows up with a 18/20 foot aluminum Boston Whaler with twin out boards and we were 28 miles inland in the Central Highlands. Never did find out who was supposed to get the damn boat.

Isyaignert October 19, 2012 at 3:58 am

Well, he'll probably be out of a jerb soon. Maybe he can get unemployment for a while while he looks for another jerb as an overpaid @sshole.

MittBorg October 19, 2012 at 3:58 pm

He's not very employable. Not much in the way of paper qualifications (he's got an MA in some not-terribly-valued field with too many applicants for too few jobs), shitty employment record, terrible record as a congresscritter, plus he's stupid. Pretty boys are only employable as long as they stay pretty and know how to kiss the right ass. He's not pretty any more and he's damned fucking annoying, so unless Mom & Dad do something, he'll be offering blow jobs on the street corners.

O/T but an arrest has been made in the Harrisonburg VA incident where a guy did a drive-by dumpster deposit of a bunch of voter registration forms. It was a Republican contractor, though in his LinkedIn site he calls himself an employee of the RNC.

My sons both considered onions to be the white orbs of death throughout their childhood.

sullivanst October 19, 2012 at 8:41 am

I'm slightly annoyed, back in 2009 there was a diary on DKos about how ERs would find an excuse for how they couldn't treat the uninsured person that ambulance brought in, and refer them to another ER, and this could happen repeatedly until either the patient died or the EMTs stabilized them to the point EMTALA no longer required further treatment. I was going to link that on "volleyball" (I can't remember if that's the term the diarist used, but it seems descriptive to me), but I can't find it.

Point is, anyone claiming EMTALA is an adequate safety net is completely ignorant and/or utterly heartless. It's hard for Mitt to claim ignorance given Romneycare, so we're left with utterly heartless (but apparently trying to disguise it with a ruse of complete ignorance).

We have that going on right now as it is. For a while, EMTs were schlepping gunshot patients between Alta Bates and Highland. Repeatedly. One notable case that I can no longer remember the details of resulted in an elderly Alzheimer's patient with a colostomy bag being dumped on a street in LA.

I'm reading about student revolts in the 1950s in Asia, and for some reason I just want to strangle everybody today. It'll pass.

Oh, JW! I think I'd rather not find out!

But doesn't EVERY ST(O) plot end in the RedShirts getting snuffed by sump'n or other?

MittBorg October 19, 2012 at 3:46 pm

I grew up on it, which is why I can enjoy "Yes, Minister," and the like but have the very devil of a time with American TV.

I just read pt. 39 of Chronicling Mitt's Mendacity, so I just want to strangle him. I doubt that will pass.

I thought it was only the ones that had lines. Or do I have that backwards?

MittBorg October 19, 2012 at 4:03 pm

I thought it was only the dudes who had NO dialog. Unless you meant "lines of …" something else. (sniff!)

MittBorg October 19, 2012 at 4:11 pm

No. It'll be like that giant dildo that Chinese dude stuck up his butt. You wish it would pass, but you know it won't, and it'l hurt like hell and tear you up sump'n awful.

I wish there was a pill I could take to make Mitt and his minions disappear.

One time a Nike-Hercules radar system showed up at my intel unit. Since I used to repair them before getting into intel, they all suspected me.

Cats can't spell worth shit anyway. (Rubs the furry belly fondly) How ya been? And what is it with you cats and self-injury? Gustav broke a claw getting into bed and bled all over the pillow and sheets. Thank deities it was the CAT pillow and not the People Pillows.

I was lucky since being in Vietnam at the time there were very few ‘trades’ which were not welcomed, providing stuff the lousy supply system could not; and everyone knew I wasn’t benefiting from it. It was just doing what was needed.

Just now got back to this….I'm grateful she didn't de-nut all of us with votes.

It's *such* a delight to hang out with bibliophiles.
