It’s … ALIVE! (Offer limited to all non-Jim-Webb participants.)

Hale, fellows, and salutations! What say we repair to our divans, a libation in the old paw, and nod sagely in agreement as first Hillary and then that swell ol’ Bern both say thoughtful, intelligent, compassionate and common-sensible things with which only a screw of rectum-heads would disagree!

Feel free to accuse Hillary of being on the menopause, or Bernie of being a Jew, or any other thing Donald Trump might say, in the comments, whatever, lightweights.

Nota bene: we shall not be liveblooging the pre-debate scrum on CNN. Enough is enough, Wolf Blitzer! First Fox made the GOP debates ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY HOURS LONG, and now CNN is trying to pretend the Democratic debate tonight starts at eight-thirty WHEN IT DOES NOT. Unless it does? Fucking sneaky CNN.

Oh, and if you’re just popping in and you LOVE US SO MUCHES for staying up late and making the jokes for you (AND ALSO THE HARD-HITTING ANALYSIS), you should go to our donations page and leave us a little sex tip … or a BIG ONE! Ooh yeah, like that. But no, seriously, give us money, one of us is gonna need a new computer one of these days.

  • Jim Webb say anything stupid yet?

    • JohnR

      Today or…?

  • Toomush_Infer

    Geez, it’s almost bedtime….WHAT?…

  • Squirrel_t_robot

    We shall see: if Hillz breaks out in a monumental sweat, she is on the menopause.

    But watch out, Bernie.

    • cynmac

      I’m 15 years younger and on the menopause. That ship has sailed, my friend.

      • SnarkOff

        Shorter: The menopause? How does it work?

  • JohnR

    Info Wars is live streaming the debate feed so RWNJs can keep CNNs ratings down because this election is all about TV ratings, at least I caught some T-Bag drivel about this on Twitter

    • SterWonk

      CNN cease-and-desist order in three, two, one, …

  • AntiDerpomeme

    None of these loser candidates are classy and they have zero experience at building yuuge walls, so I’m going to bed. And some, I assume, are good people. I’m still going to bed, though. Will read liveblog and not-allowed comments in the AM, so be funny, dammit!

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    T minus 1 minute and snoozing

  • MsAnthropesMr

    Fuck it, let’s do it live.

  • MsAnthropesMr

    I’m watching Netflix!

  • JohnR

    Wolf seem perkier than usual, must have taken a laxative earlier in prep for tonight.

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    Kenyan video

  • Looks like CNN lost that plane again…

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Black hole?

      • I figured after they found it at the last debate, they would have kept an eye on the damn thing…

        • MsAnthropesMr

          Maybe they should tie a string around it.

  • Callyson

    Just caught the last part of Obama’s message. Damn right I’ll work even harder in 2016–I don’t want to risk letting any of the idiots and assholes on the other side getting into the White House.

    • MsAnthropesMr

      I’ll work harder. Does it require that I do something?

      • DoILookAmused2u ?

        Sadly, yes.

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    Ghost of Biden who is not dead haunts CNN

  • tehbaddr

    OK, enough of the warm up. Do ya think Hillz will glare at the Bern at sometime during the fiasco?

    • cynmac

      Yep. When she isn’t stealing his talking points!

      • Anarchy Pony

        It’s so cute that she recently decided to be opposed to the TPP.

  • Callyson

    Also, too, before The Donald makes too much over the ratings for tonight (which, let’s face it, won’t be as high as the freak shows on his side of the aisle): this is going on during the playoff baseball game that is taking place between teams from the top two markets in the country. I know I’ll be toggling back and forth…

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Hmm…They’re still playing beisbol?

    • Anarchy Pony

      It’s almost as if they don’t want anyone to see something of actual political substance rather than racist dog whistles and and mindless platitudes.

      • MsAnthropesMr

        It’s the Mexicans!

        • Anarchy Pony

          I’m yooooooge! And classy! Make America great again!

    • Suttree

      I’m considering a nice warm bath and a hot toddy with the debate on in the backround. I should probably bring a snorkel with me.

  • Biff52

    DRINK!

    What, too soon?

    • Suttree

      It’s never too soon.

      • SnarkOff

        I started drinking in anticipation of this debate six years ago.

        • Suttree

          I was drinking when I voted Bernie into the senate. Probably stoned too. I was in VT.

  • cynmac

    I’m here! With wine!

  • Ricky Gay

    earlier today Wolf said Las Vegas was full of anticipation for this thing. Please confirm.

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Well, Prince isn’t playing or anything.

    • Greg Fuderer

      I’m at a hotel bar in ka’anapali. But I can confirm that is a fact.

    • bobbert

      Antici……………..

      • Whale Chowder

        Say it!

        Too late?

  • tehbaddr

    Will they have those “round sign bearing” ladies like most Vegas spectacles?

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    CNN trying to make it sound like reality TV or a football game

  • Callyson

    Oh JESUS this attempt by CNN to hype up this debate is just sad. Back to the game, for the next few minutes at least…

  • Toomush_Infer

    Man, it sounds like Thunderball! This should be so exciting!!!!……….um…..

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Two men enter, no one cares!

      • Ricky Gay

        ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls… sleepin time’s here!

  • CripesAmighty

    It’s just not the same without Howard Cosell.

  • Biff52

    It’s at the Wynn? What, The Sands already booked?

    • bobbert

      Hey, the Wynn is a decent hotel. Owned by an asshole, what you gonna do?

  • Callyson

    Hillary!

    • MsAnthropesMr

      DrinK!

      • Usedtobeyellerdawg

        Yessir.

  • Toomush_Infer

    Mrs. Toomush just asked me to “turn it down!”…..

    • Biff52

      Just like Joe’s Garage!

      • MsAnthropesMr

        I own not one, but TWO Fender Champs.

        • Biff52

          I’ve got the Stratocaster with a whammy bar, we should jam!

          • MsAnthropesMr

            I have a couple of strats with Whammy bars, but mostly play ASATs.

  • Beaumarchais?

    The national anthem for a debate? Is this a sporting event?

    • mtn_philosoph

      “Play ball!”

  • tehbaddr

    The National Anthem, shit it’s not a sporting event, or is it?

  • Jeamonn

    I’m not watching this unless Trump comes in and throws Fiorina’s severed head at Hillary Clinton as a warning. Let me know if that goes down.

    • Vegan and Tiara

      I was just thinking “needz moar Trump!” and the thing hasn’t even started yet. TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUMP!

    • JohnR

      Trump might come in with a folding chair and try to take out Bernie.

  • JustPixelz

    And the home of the brave …. PLAY BALL

    • BMW

      Go Royals!

  • Biff52

    Oh shit, for a top tier ‘Merican entertainer, that’s one fucked up National Anthem right there.

    • bobbert

      Really? I was hoping she’d do okay. It’s actually a motherfucker to sing, unless you’re careful about the key.

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    I’m here! Did I miss anything? When do we drink?

    • Beaumarchais?

      You’re late! Down in one!

    • Anarchy Pony

      Stop talking and drink!

    • Toomush_Infer

      You have some catching up to do… luckily, you can outlast some of us..

  • Who invited Madeline?

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Albright, or the cookie?

      ETA (I donno have a TV)

    • sw19womble

      Marcel Proust?

      • Beaumarchais?

        Too soon!

      • Toomush_Infer

        She’s a cookie?…

  • Callyson

    Even Sheryl Crow can’t make our fucking national anthem sound good. “This Land Is Your Land” or GTFO…

    • MsAnthropesMr

      I saw her and the Beastie Boys on the same bill. Man was she stoned. Her band was incredible though.

    • bobbert

      I prefer “America the Beautiful” for the national anthem. Easier to sing. No disrespect to Woody — that will always be the Alternative National Anthem.

      Also, the thing about the Star Spangled Banner is it only requires less than two octaves of range, but you need to pick a key that you can handle.

  • CripesAmighty

    Ouch. For any dogs in hearing distance, that was animal cruelty

    • Callyson

      My two dogs are in full agreement.

      • cynmac

        So was mine!

  • Toomush_Infer

    Them are some classy leather pants!…

  • lucidamente

    Waiting for Joe Biden to crash the yellow Corvette through the studio wall and scream “Did you miss me, motherfuckers?”

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    Who are these other guys? Hillary and Bernie’s corner men?

  • JustPixelz

    I think we can all agree to amend the Constitution so CNN can never host the debates again.

    • LarkintheAM

      They did such a splendid job with the Republican “debates” – surely they can only go up from there, right?

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    So many commercials.

    • cynmac

      Never miss an opportunity to sell US stuff!

  • Jeamonn

    Im A idiot. I had it on MSNBC and missed Sheryl Crow making the crowd all wet in the pants. Its also bad that I can’t tell the difference between the two.

    • cynmac

      She didn’t.

  • CripesAmighty

    Drafting: “be it resolved…”

  • Callyson

    Jesus, this thing is going on until 8 Pacific? I may need a dinner break. Or a happy hour, depending…

    • MsAnthropesMr

      You have different time out there?

    • cynmac

      Why not both!?!

    • sw19womble

      Fuck that. It’s almost 2am already over here….

    • bobbert

      Or a happy ending?

  • BMW

    So far Hillary and Bernie are tied for biggest crowd pop when they came out. I think Bernie should get bonus points for singing along with the anthem, but O’Malley surprises everyone by being the tallest! It’s a total nail biter!

  • Callyson

    UGH, Don Lemon. Never mind dinner–time to drink!

  • tehbaddr

    Web looks awful uncomfortable up there.

  • Greg Fuderer

    Every time I hit the “more comments” button, another with even more “more comments” shows up. So if you guys could just roll it back just a little on the number of comments you make, I, for one, would appreciate it.

    • CripesAmighty

      No comment.

      • Beaumarchais?

        Ditto.

        • MsAnthropesMr

          What comments?

        • Anarchy Pony

          Duuuuuuude… What?

    • LarkintheAM

      Comments are not allowed @ Wonkette.

  • Callyson

    Who is this guy and why does his grin make him look as if he is still high from the laughing gas from the dentist’s office?

  • Geez, why haven’t I made a Lincoln Chafee Shirt?

    Oh, yeah. Right.

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Feel the CHAFE!

      Get Gold Bond.

    • JustPixelz

      It wouldn’t have to fit. It’s designed to chafe.

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    Who the fuck is that? Elmer Fudd?

    • sw19womble

      LOL!

    • Callyson

      IDK but that tie is HIDEOUS…

    • Vegan and Tiara

      He actually seems really sweet. Jim Webb, as usual, can go fuck himself.

  • Jeamonn

    When does Lincoln Chafee try to steal the shard from the gelflings and put the Dark Crystal back together?

    • Anarchy Pony

      HA!

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    I thought Red Skelton was dead?

    • CripesAmighty

      He went metric.

  • Josh Raeburn

    Lincoln Chaffee has had no scandals. Being boring cast as a virtue.

    • Toomush_Infer

      Drink!..

    • bbayliss

      “Don’t wear sandals, can’t afford the scandal.”

      • MilwaukeeKent

        I suppose the pump don’t work, because why?

        • bbayliss

          Better chew gum

          • MilwaukeeKent

            …and stick it on the handle? You are a Vandal!

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    Jim Webb. Nuff said.

    • Vegan and Tiara

      VIETNAM!!!! is not as catchy as BENGHAZI!!!!!!!!!

  • Callyson

    I thought this was a Democratic debate: why the fuck is Jim Webb there?

    • LarkintheAM

      To remind us what the stakes are.

      • Callyson

        Zing!

  • Beaumarchais?

    Oh shut up, I’ve heard enough from Webb now.

  • Jeamonn

    Jim Webb looks like Ron Swanson on a bender

    • ZangoCrudmonger

      Swanson would be fun. This cat’s a downer, so ..much…sad.

    • Anarchy Pony

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    Webb needs a laxative

    • Callyson

      Or a sedative.

    • cynmac

      How can you tell?

  • tehbaddr

    Remind me, wasn’t Web the Shrubs choice for the head of DHS?

  • JustPixelz

    WHY GOD? Why won’t you strike me deaf? I support gay marriage, a woman’s right to choose, and don’t hate Muslims. Why won’t you smite my ears?

  • Jeamonn

    Poverty! Drink!

  • proudgrampa

    Bernie is Jewish?

    • Vegan and Tiara

      I think he is. He would have fought the Nazis for sure, whether he was a Jew or not. Not like those pussies who died during the Holocaust.

    • JustPixelz

      By heritage, but non-practicing.

  • So if I had more dead relatives would I be more qualified for high office?

    • tomamitai

      Unless you killed them yourself.

  • tomamitai

    Wow, the man that no one ever heard of has avoided being tarred by scandal! I’m sure that, should he get the nomination, there’s no way the republicans can find or manufacture anything about him.

    • Beowoof14

      Give Karl a shot, he will have him blowing guys in an Alley behind Fanuel Hall.

  • Josh Raeburn

    Did he just forget the names of his children?

    • DoILookAmused2u ?

      So many daughters…

  • CripesAmighty

    And my cousin Seymour…

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    What is her name…Oh Julia.

    • Vegan and Tiara

      She’s the Jan of the O’Malley family.

  • MsAnthropesMr

    Is god smiting us? I don’t have a TV set.

    • cynmac

      You can watch it on your phone or on your computer, like me. I fired Comcast in 2011.
      http://www.cnn.com/

      • MsAnthropesMr

        No no, it looks better this way.

  • Callyson

    I don’t think Jim Webb raised his hands enough. Next!

  • sw19womble

    Tie Watch: Chafee can’t do a knot properly. Webb looks like he’s trying to throttle himself….

    • Callyson

      O’Malley’s is so shiny it might blind me…

    • sw19womble

      Ooh… O’Malley has my theoretical vote. Perfect… but perhaps a little too perfect!

  • Jeamonn

    JIm Webb just said that one of his daughters gives out hand jobs….or do I not know what a massage therapist does?

    • tomamitai

      Do democratic massage therapists give you happy spendings?

      • Jeamonn

        HA!

  • CripesAmighty

    When did Fred Rogers toss his hat into the ring?

  • Callyson

    Shorter O’Malley: you don’t know who the fuck I am but I have learned how to do things better than others.

  • Toomush_Infer

    Webb: Kicking what? and taking names for a petition?…

  • Something tells me Omalley will be Trix new politicrush, what, with his principles and all.

  • Toomush_Infer

    We shoulda elected the magician – why didn’t we think of that?

    • LarkintheAM

      It’s always comes down to the wands.

  • JurisGal

    Odds Donald Trump pulls a Kayne and shows up on the stage?

    • Beowoof14

      Trump is tweeting this, I can’t bear to go and look.

      • cynmac

        After. If I have any alcohol left.

  • Ricky Gay

    • tomamitai

      I had to use a vpn, I think my tv/internet provider is pissed that I switched to their lowest cost package.

  • Jeamonn

    Fuck…these guys suck.

  • Soylent green is people! er, I mean, our economy is… fuckit.

  • Oginikwe

    Arrgh!!! “Common sense!!” Like that means something.

  • BMW

    O’Malley would be crushing it…if this was 1988.

    • MsAnthropesMr

      It isn’t? Fuck! When did I get so old!

        You only have to refuse to believe it – works for the klowns.

      • bobbert

        Don’t start.

  • Dolmance

    There’s some white guy I’ve never seen before doing a Leftist version of Bobby Jindal, trying to deliver soaring rhetoric, while I’m going into a fucking coma.

  • cousin itt

    Bernie!

  • Finally, someone who matters…

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Donna Rose?

  • Cheesus Crust

    That’s gonna be a meme for O’Malley… we must square our shoulders.

  • proudgrampa

    What the hell is Hillary wearing? A Nehru jacket???

    • JohnR

      Nehru pants suit, it’s the latest.

    • bobbert

      Actually, I thought it was pretty cool. Sort of a morning coat pantsuit. A nice kind-of-suit, but not a standard pantsuit.

      • proudgrampa

        So I just looked at it again (I’m sober now), and yeah, it is kind of nice.

  • Jeamonn

    Did my man get a hair cut or did he just comb it for the debate?

    • Beaumarchais?

      Yes.

  • Callyson

    I DO appreciate Bernie calling out the Citizens United decision. Give ’em hell, Bern!

  • tehbaddr

    Why is it that I keep thinking, Bernie’s gonna ask me if I want that on rye?

  • cousin itt

    Science!

  • cousin itt

    Morality!

  • John Thomas

    Bernie has a brand-new suit! And someone introduced him to hair spray!

    • LarkintheAM

      I know – he doesn’t look so “scraggly professor” tonight.

    • Anarchy Pony

      Bernie has no need for hairspray!

  • Cheesus Crust

    Preach it Bernie!

    • Cheesus Crust

      I feel the spirit moving! Or maybe that’s just lunch….

  • Callyson

    Oh, what I wouldn’t give for Bernie to be the questioner during the clown car debates…

    • sw19womble

      I thought you were already moaning about it finishing late?

    • proudgrampa

      You know, that is a great idea for a debate format.

  • BMW

    My SlingTV feed must be really lagging behind. From my perspective, people are making jokes about stuff that hasn’t happened yet.

    • tomamitai

      We are from the future.

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Weirder yet, some of us are making jokes about things that happened in 1988!

      • bobbert

        You have to have a strong stomach to joke about things from 1988.

    • proudgrampa

      Oh, you have encountered a ripple in the spacetime continuum. Relax. This is completely normal.

  • Beowoof14

    Bernie, playing all of my liberal hits.

  • moonpie

    Preach it Bernie!

  • Jeamonn

    Bernie is pretty dope.

  • JurisGal

    Love Wonkette so much. I came to post there isn’t anyone to make fun of then I saw the comments below. Hilarious!

  • Suttree

    Like a fucking boss! Hail Bernie!

  • CripesAmighty

    Feelin the Bern

  • tehbaddr

    Hellz yeah Bernie!

  • Toomush_Infer

    I do like how Bernie didn’t bother to introduce himself…

  • BloviateMe

    If Bernie ended with “Mother Fuckers!” it would’ve been a flawless victory.

  • Jeamonn

    BENGAHHHHHZZZZIEEEEE!!!!!!

  • Beaumarchais?

    Education and jobs over prisons? That’s socialism!

    • Beowoof14

      Yet it’s cheaper than prison, but no profit for prison companies.

  • JohnR

    Bernie rested his voice too. He’s been sounding a little rough.

  • LarkintheAM

    My 16 year old is swooning over Bern.

    • JohnR

      Your 16 year old wants a shot at a decent live or something?

  • SighSperling

    Fuck yeah, Bernie!

  • marxalot

    Bernie sounds like a nice, sensible centrist. Where is the rich-eating wild eyed socialist we were promised?

    • Zippy

      I thought that was Bamz

  • ZangoCrudmonger

    So which of Bernie’s friends up there brings up socialism as a negative first?

  • Cheesus Crust

    Waiting on the mic drop from Bern

  • Don’t thank the hosts! CNN is not doing this for you or democracy, they are doing it for ratings.

    • cynmac

      And Ad Dollar$.

  • MilwaukeeKent

    A Hail Mary for Jim Webb: respond every chance you get with “Benghazi!!”, that is all, just “Benghazi!”.

  • tehbaddr

    Now get ready to snoozzz off to the Hillz.

  • Cheesus Crust

    Hillz!

    • MsAnthropesMr

        Hillz Billz 4Realz.

  • Jeamonn

    And going to Chipotle

  • Josh Raeburn

    If she breaks into “Climb Every Mountain” halfway through this thing, at least she has the right dress for it.

    • Beaumarchais?

      Force of habit.

  • Toomush_Infer

    She has a nice suit, too…

  • I mean, why even run for office if you’re not a grandparent? You don’t care about the future – you’ve got no skin in the game. Only us parent types care!

  • tomamitai

    Will Hilz be Madam President or Grammy President?

  • Squirrel_t_robot

    Hillz. Not the crazy white haired fella; the sensible white haired lady.

  • Callyson

    Hillary, infrastructure is good but whenever you talk about it, use the word “potholes.” THEN people who don’t know the term will know why the fuck it matters…

    • LarkintheAM

      The Dems are smart enough to know, and ain’t no conservaturds watching anyways.

  • SighSperling

    Zzzzzzz. Go back to Bernie.

  • bbayliss

    Commie

  • sw19womble

    Tie Watch Pt 2: Bernie looking very professorial there, a nice bargain from Goodwill I reckon.
    I was worried about Hillary, but that’s a very clever trompe l’oueil she’s done with the jacket. Kudos!

    • Squirrel_t_robot

      The round collar works nicely on the older Madame.

  • Jeamonn

    Da fuck, Hillary? If you’re going to go into Bernie’s pocket atl least do it when were not looking.

  • Callyson

    PAID FAMILY LEAVE!!! Give ’em hell, Hill!

  • Suttree

    Sorry Hillz, ain’t feeling it.

    • Squirrel_t_robot

      It takes an older lady a bit longer to warm you up.

      • Suttree

        Bullshit! My last girlfiend was 50. (I’m late 30’s).

  • Me not sure

        People in Red States aren’t prosecuted when their guns are misused – stolen and unreported, used by their children. If that were to start happening, if they were held responsible instead of assumed responsible, a lot of things would change.

          yes, every time some child shoots his sib or the neighbor kid who won’t share her puppy or anyone, even by accident, the parents should go to jail for at least manslaughter. Unless said child is big enough to forcibly take the gun from his parents then all bets are off. The parents are to blame and should be held accountable.. Just think of the economic boom in gun safes.

      If so, he isn’t nearly as entertaining as Clint Eastwood was in the 2012 RNC. He should call Clint’s bartender…

  • Squirrel_t_robot

    Come on, Dems.

    Jim Webb is just sad.

  • Jeamonn

    I could show a movie on Webb’s forehead.

    • Squirrel_t_robot

      And I really want to do it.

      • MsAnthropesMr

        I can’t see it (no TV) might be too shiny!

    I think a small bowl of pudding would be more interesting than Jim Webb.

    • Jeamonn

      what flavor?

      • FukuiSanYesOta

        “Bland”

        • MsAnthropesMr

          OH, you mean “rice”.

      • Anarchy Pony

        Any ot,K

    • MsAnthropesMr

      I’d be interested in a bowl of pudding.

  • Cheesus Crust

    A bit of truth from Chafee…

  • JMP

    Find common ground – with Wayne LaPierre? How naive is Chaffee?

  • John Thomas

    Bodyguards? Reagan had bodyguards, and that didn’t work out so well for him.

    • Zippy

      Ha! I’m staying at the Hinckley Hilton at the moment

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    Common ground with Lapier? Lol

    • ZangoCrudmonger

      6 ft under 60 years from now…..

    • First, we admit that “more guns” is the answer to every question that is not answered by “more tax cuts”

  • Callyson

    The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Wasn;t Zero Mostel in that?

      • Toomush_Infer

        Bambi always makes me cry, too…

        • MsAnthropesMr

          Bambi Does a VIdeo Nasty

          Zero Mostel was in Bambi?

    This is hard to snark, we need to have one moron in full rabid mode to make this fun sort of like how the GOP has eleventy billion of them…my kingdom for a frothing imbecile!

  • Squirrel_t_robot

    We are not at fucking war in Syria.

    And we never should be.

    Tell em Hillz.

    No war.

    Please.

  • MilwaukeeKent

    Webb, don’t steal NRA talking points, average Americans don’t get death threats from gun nuts, officials who propose any gun control do.

  • VinnyThePooh

    Are they acting out Full Metal Jacket?

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    Russia! Would you punch Putin in the nuts or neck?

  • tehbaddr

    Iranian sanctions, you know what that means….

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Drink!

    • Zippy

      Raise your hands! Who wants to nuke Iran?

      • tehbaddr

        Sorry, wrong debate.

  • Thaumaturgist

    Anderson Cooper is an air head who knows nothing about Syria or the Russians. He’s just making noise, repeating GOP talking points.

  • sw19womble

    Sanders going after the Family Guy vote.

  • DemmeFatale

    Oh, Grampa Bernie!

  • Callyson

    Shorter Hillary: let’s bust Putin’s balls. Pretty sure I heard cheers from my Eastern European friends just now…

    • Putin is a murderous creep. I’m just not sure what we’re actually supposed to do about him – or, rather, if our trying to do something about him won’t just make him worse. Our hate only seems to make him stronger…

      • FauxAntocles

        There must some way to neutralize him with Cheney – maybe if they were in the same room, their evil egos would open a wormhole and they would get sucked in.

      • Anarchy Pony

        Putin acts like USA, USA can’t stand it.

        • bobbert

          This is the best summary.

  • Jeamonn

    Holy shit Bernie just Inceptioned it!!! A quagmire in a quagmire.

    • There is a Family Guy joke in there somewhere…

      Giggity.

  • Q: How would you stop Russia stopping our leadership?
    A: I would lead more betterer.

  • SighSperling

    Fuck you, Hillary. Send Chelsea if you want to go fight Putin.

  • JMP

    They’re asking about foreign disputes – and the answers aren’t just “bomb them all” “I’ll bomb them harder”? What kind of debate is this?

    • Callyson

      A serious one?

      I know, we’ve all forgotten what those are like after watching the clown car ones…

  • Zippy

    It’s quagmires all the way down

  • Beaumarchais?

    Bernie’s right on Iraq—worst blunder ever.

  • TheBidenator

    Sarah Palin can still see Russia from her house so she can take on Putin! Sarah for speaker! Come on people!

    What did Senator Sanders say, rocky?

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Watch me pull a rabbit outta my hat.

      • Zippy

        But that trick never works

        • MsAnthropesMr

  • smr06va

    Who is that?

    • tehbaddr

      She’s a comely wonk, trying to even out the Anderson machismo.

  • JMP

    And it’s Mr. “Who?” who goes after Clinton on her Iraq war vote.

  • Vegan and Tiara

    FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Describe it for me! Is fur flying? How bout Bernie’s Hair?

      • Vegan and Tiara

        First Hillary threw Chaffee off the stage for saying she had bad judgement, then Jim Webb sucker punched O’Malley for attention, Hillary threw a roundhouse at Bernie, and he lifted her jacket up, and …wtf? Now they’re making out!

        • MsAnthropesMr

          Wow. Much better than I imagined it.

          • Vegan and Tiara

            It was INSANE!

  • Biff52

    Quagmire

    • SighSperling

      Within a quagmire…

      • Monsieur_Grumpe

        Self fisting?

    • tomamitai

      Giggity!

  • VinnyThePooh

    *ding-ding!*

  • TheBidenator

    Democrats use words like quagmire within a quagmire and bad decision to describe Syria/Iraq whilst Republicans, “my brother kept us safe”

  • Beaumarchais?

    Wrapping herself in Obama!

    • sw19womble

      Did she not get the 2014 memo from the DNC about the dangers of that?

    • SighSperling

      While saying she’ll STAND UP to Putin when Obama hasnt. She’s a sly cunt, man.

    • LarkintheAM

      I can dig that.

  • Callyson

    “Bamz asked ME to be his Sec of State, not you!”

    Hee hee hee…

  • Cheesus Crust

    Ooooo… she just bitch slapped Chafee

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    Blondie Speaks. Bernie ignores.

  • Jeamonn

    Fuck…sometimes I can see why people don’t like Hillary.

    • cynmac

      Sometimes?

  • TheBidenator

    Dana Bash, you’re supposed to say “you voted against the Iraq War” as an accusation FFS and then declare “both sides do it”

  • Beaumarchais?

    Who would you attack, Bernie?

  • BMW

    Did somebody say “Quagmire”?

  • Biff52

    Föxblönde speaks! Drink!

    • Usedtobeyellerdawg

      Done. And done again.

  • MsAnthropesMr

    This debate is even better not watching it! I’m gonna not watch all the debates!

  • cynmac

    First anecdote – and it comes from O’Malley. Drink?

  • Beaumarchais?

    I’m glad that Iraq remains a stain on those of both parties who voted for it.

  • Bernsplaining!

  • Me not sure

    The Viet Nam War Is over ? Hoooray!!

    • Vegan and Tiara

      “We had just gotten out of the Vietnam war.” WTF????? That was 45 years again, man.

      • Me not sure

        Chaffee for past president!!

  • moonpie

    Wow, people actually know wtf they’re talking about in this debate. Republican heads would be spinning and popping off at these real questions.

  • Beaumarchais?

    Good answer, that he voted for Kosovo.

  • Jeamonn

    What the fuck, Anderson? I would use force if they said something about my mother, Cooper…you dick.

  • John Thomas

    Why aren’t any of these people getting any of the softballs that CNN lobbed at The Clown Car?

    • Different league, different rules…

    • Zippy

      because liberal media

      • MilwaukeeKent

        Xactly. Bending over backwards to prove they aren’t part of the [sneer it with me] “Lib-er-all Media” for people who won’t care anyway, and with the GOP, bending forward to prove they’re impartial and not [sneer it with me] “Driveby/Lamestream/Lib-er-all Media” for people who…ah, fuck it. We all know the score. They’ll get shit tomorrow from the right no matter what.

    • LarkintheAM

      Because none of them could take the hardballs without pitching an epic fit.

    • Callyson

      CNN thinks that they can’t count on viewers sticking around just to see what crap The Donald says this time?

    • Vegan and Tiara

      Needz moar BABY BRAINZ!!!!!!!

      • JurisGal

        Needs more Benghazi!11!!!!!!!

    • TheBidenator

      Because it’s similar to the kid in class who’s a little slow, maybe I daresay, retarded being able to make a macaroni picture that is just a bunch of macaroni and glitter getting an A because the teacher knows it’s the best he can do….

  • Skwerl King

    Just turned it on. Is Joe Biden there? Did Trump show up?

    • Beaumarchais?

      That was the first half.

    • Vegan and Tiara

      No and no, but Anderson is really treating this like a real debate. Not fellating the candidates like during the GOP debates.

    • You missed it. Trump came in on a magic escalator and Biden flew in on his invisible jet. But they already left.

      • Skwerl King

        Sounds like the Iowa State Fair.

    • tehbaddr

      Handsome Joe is sitting back stage, laughing and having a Naty Bo.

  • DoILookAmused2u ?
    • MsAnthropesMr

      IS that Joe McCarthy?

    • Me not sure

      I think I saw his mouth move.

  • Jeamonn

    Why are the Dems getting the grown up questions? Did we turn the reality switch back on?

    • Beaumarchais?

      Because these people might become president?

    • CripesAmighty

      Because they have demonstrated an ability to eat strained peas without spitting it all over their bibs.

  • TheBidenator

    So when are the Demos going to get questions similar to “which one of you wants to bare back Reagan the most?”

  • CripesAmighty

    This is no fun. Even the dumbest of this crowd is too smart.

  • SighSperling

    Go home Webb

  • Callyson

    Shorter Webb: pay attention to ME!!!!

  • Wait!

    Assad invaded Syria?!?

    • FukuiSanYesOta

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Bad body odor?

    • Vegan and Tiara

      I think he might be an amputee, from war wounds.

      • Zippy

        had his knees shot off

        • Vegan and Tiara

          I just looked it up, two legs and one arm gone.

  • Callyson

    Is Webb seriously talking about body language? WTF?

  • Cheesus Crust

    Why IS Russia in Syria… is it using a condom, the world wants to know.

    • Anarchy Pony

      Probably because it was actually invited.

  • SighSperling

    I was here, there, been over there 10 minutes and a buncha my sisters kids died or somethin’…

    China is the greatest threat, really?

    – Hillary

  • Beaumarchais?

    I wonder if Webb thinks he’s going to be Hill’s VP.

    • smr06va

      Sarah Palin has a better chance……….

      Oh yeah, remember 15 years ago when the CIA said global warming was going to cause refugee problems and wars and was the greatest threat to US security? The Bushies mocked and everyone laughed and laughed about how Al Gore is fat.

      Live it, dumbasses. I hate Webb

  • sw19womble

    Did Bernie fall asleep halfway through Webb’s monologue?
    I know I did.

    Yeah, you’re ‘qualified’ all right, Webb.

  • Yeah! Lincoln was a soldier and that’s why we won the Civil War!

    Wait. What?

  • Beaumarchais?

    I don’t have a commander in chief, douchebag.

    • FukuiSanYesOta

      Yeah, I caught that too. What the fuck?

  • JMP

    Cooper asks Webb why he’s such an awesome war hero and then insults Sanders for not fighting in a war that all but the dumbest people in America now recognize was a horrible mistake.

  • Skwerl King

    My dog was a marine, my cat was a marine, my outboard was a marine…

    • LarkintheAM

      Well my brother is a Marine and he thinks Webb can go fuck himself. He doesn’t speak for them all.

    • JMP

      Seriously, what is with the weird arrogance so many former marines? OK, so you were a marine, that’s nice, why should I give a fuck?

      • Takoma DC

        Semper Fi!

      • ahughes798

        You have just asked a question I’ve been asking myself for decades, but not out loud. So thank you!!

  • Cismontane

    Webb’s more than a little scary and mushroom cloudy…

  • Takoma DC

    When Webb walked onto the stage his walk was Frankenstein-like.

    • Vegan and Tiara

      I think he’s an amputee. I think one arm and two legs maybe?

      • AnOuthouse

        No brain?

      • smr06va

        No. I heard he suffered from TBI…………..

      • Takoma DC

        No amputation but shrapnel in the knee.

        • Vegan and Tiara

          Not even an amputated arm?

          • Takoma DC

            This is getting Lynchian. :-)

            I only read shrapnel in the knee which forced him to retire and oh yeah a head injury of some kind.

          • Vegan and Tiara

            The head injury explains a lot. I think he thought he was at the GOP debate.

  • TheBidenator

    Bernie is fucking flat doesn’t he know only Bamz gets away with measured speech in a debate?

  • Shady Shopkeep

    And here we have Bern saying nice things about someone who is not going to be president.

  • tomamitai

    “Once A Marine, Always A Marine”: including Lee Harvey Oswald?

    • BMW

      He had to learn to shoot somewhere…

    • Well, shades of CIA/KGB stuff in there too, though, so it’s neutralized?

  • Jeamonn

    Bernie Sanders…the hippies coming home to roost.

    • cynmac

      Actually, he didn’t evade like some. Applying for CO is valid. Running away to Canada, overusing student deferments or being in the “National Guard”, not so much.

  • Callyson

    30 seconds for each of them? Good luck, Anderson…

    • MsAnthropesMr

      I recommend tazer.

  • Jonathan Lawson

    Webb* needs a shirt that fits.

    *I fought in Viet Nam…

  • Vegan and Tiara

    “Pacifist? Hell, I’ll fight all of you single handedly” Bernie Sanders

  • Jeamonn

    Isle of Wright Shias? What the fuck did I just hear?

    • DoILookAmused2u ?

      I think he meant Alawites. About 10% of population

      • MilwaukeeKent

        All the Whites? Alewives?

  • SighSperling

    I’m not entirely convinced that Chafee and Steve Doocy weren’t separated at birth.

    • Ricky Gay

      by Ben Carson?

      • SighSperling

        He left a sponge in Steve.

  • Shady Shopkeep

    Chops, har har.

  • TheBidenator

    Jim Webb wants to clusterfuck the entire Middle East…yep, totally a Democrat

  • FukuiSanYesOta

    Yeah! Bernie! Climate change!

  • JMP

    Oh snap, Sanders – he wins this one.

  • Me not sure

    NO NOOKS!!

    • MsAnthropesMr

      I know, they just take up space in the kitchen.

  • Takoma DC

    HRC? Really that’s the greatest threat?

  • FukuiSanYesOta

    Jim Webb really doesn’t like the Chinese.

    • sw19womble

      He never got over that crappy alternator he bought on ebay.

  • TheBidenator

    The scientific community is the greatest national security threat, the fuck Bernie?….oh wait, hah I guess I should wait for the entire answer first

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    I want more choices for president just like the republicans.

    • MsAnthropesMr

      I’m sure we can request some of the folks at the Circle K to come on down.

      • FukuiSanYesOta

        They’re short staffed because Chaffee skipped his shift as a bagger.

  • tehbaddr

    2 of these 5 should be at the kids table, but there aren’t enough candidates to make it look copacetic.

  • Callyson

    Break, thank God. I need to pee FFS…

    • Toomush_Infer

      Go! Go!….

    • Jeamonn

      I’m going crazy astronaut…diapers.

      • Toomush_Infer

        I usually save those for Republican debates…

        • Ricky Gay

          to toss?

  • Biff52

    Commercial break! Drink! Or pee!

    • Beaumarchais?

      Can’t it be both?

    • Me not sure

      All of the above.!

  • BMW

    I’m going to say something nice about Webb…he ran for Senate just to stick it to George W. Bush and his handling of Iraq.

    • JurisGal

      What else ya got?

      • Jen_Baker_VA

        He didn’t entirely fuck it all up? Not that he did not try but at the time it was a pretty libtarded congress. But still, he did not entirely fuck it all up so there is that.

    • LarkintheAM

      And he was what NASA needed at the time.

  • Me not sure

    I like Andy! he actually challenges these folks.

    • It is surprising to see journalism at one of these things.

      I would like to see it at all of the these things.

  • TheBidenator

    Jim Webb thinks Chinese cyber warfare is a huge threat to his cybersexing Reagan so we must invade China/Iran so we can drive to the Tripoli Airport

    • MsAnthropesMr

      Where the Arabs chew on dates, and I’ll never forget what it’s like to be when misadventure animates.

    • FukuiSanYesOta

      Because he wants to be YOUR commander in chief!

      • Beaumarchais?

        Even Ike didn’t make that mistake.

    • tomamitai

      Aren’t most of the phishers and identity thieves operating out of Russia?

    • Ricky Gay

      3 dimensional chess champ I tell u what!

      Yeah, those dangerous Canadians– their team can’t win the World Series. It has to be an American team.

      • RC

        Better them then the damn Texicans. Fuck Huston and the Rangers.

  • CripesAmighty

    Awesome ad from the ifcwu!

  • FauxAntocles

    Webb must be Rethuglican, he’s on his third marriage.

    • BMW

      He was until 2006.

    • Takoma DC

      Yes. And he also makes sweet love to Israel, “Our greatest ally.”

      Also too his 22 yrs younger Vietnamese bride came C.O.DD.

        • cousin itt

          In Copenhagen, no doubt.

      • Thaumaturgist

        Was so busy watching live-blog updates, didn’t hear about Bernie Sanders and Denmark til after th debate. Sorry.

  • TheBidenator

    Well Jim Webb is the moronic godsend to break up this rabidly normal debate, stay with us Jimmy!

  • moonpie

    Webb’s necktie is so tight, it’s making his head bulge. “A” rating from the NRA?!!!! Are you f#$#@ kidding me?

  • Jeamonn

    Hillary just needs to ask the obvious question, ” Why are we even doing this? We all know how it’s going to end. I mean seriously…an old hippie and the exact opposite of the three wise men? Let’s wrap this up.”

  • Callyson

    They’re BAAACK!

    Come on Hillz, knock this BENGHAZI!!! part II question out of the park…

    YES! This fucking committee IS a Republican operation! Go Hillz!

  • Time to drink all the vodka.

    But for real I wish she hadn’t done that. Unforced error. Probably an overreaction to the lessons she learned dealing with the Rs in the 90s, but even so.

    • cynmac

      Agreed. Self-inflicted wounds.

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    email! Drink!

    • Vecciojohn

      Better not.

  • JMP

    Cooper: “You haven’t been able to put this issue behind you”

    Oh shut up; it’s you assholes in the media who haven’t been able to put that non-issue behind you, it was quickly proven that Clinton and her staff did nothing wrong yet you keep lying and claiming there’s some kind of scandal there.

  • cousin itt

    I’m not still standing. I have too much drinky.

    • Vecciojohn

      So are I….

  • Vecciojohn
  • Me not sure

    Boo-Yah!

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    Bernie would make college affordable.

    • Vecciojohn

      What a snob!

    • JurisGal

      College? Pfft, comment by the resident right wing troll on a local site: “college is such a waste”

  • Shady Shopkeep

    The caption has me mildly confused. Is Clinton’s mishandling of the email controversy the issue, or is it her admitting that she mishandled it?

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      probably both. After all, you are only sorries when you get caughted

  • TheBidenator

    Bill Clinton to Dana Bash: “Whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas baby”

  • Jeamonn

    With all due respect Secretary Clinton we don’t want to hear about that other shit.

  • JurisGal

    Not a good response to the email thing by former FLOTUS former SoS but Sanders nailed it.

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    Bernie!

  • TheBidenator

    Hillary didn’t turn over her emails describing what she was going to do with Huma as soon as the cameras were off…clearly she is guilty of Benghaziing Benghazi

  • Zippy

    Go Bernie- FUCK THE EMAILS!

  • cousin itt

    Bernie said a swear!!1111!!!

  • Callyson

    Bernie: the American people are sick of hearing about your damn e-mails!

    Clap, clap…

    “Fuck the media, BENGHAZI, and Hillary’s emails” BERNIE! BERNIE!!!!!!

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    $4.5M here or there. When will they bring up real money?

  • JMP

    And now Sanders is calling out the media for their treatment of his opponent, yay!

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    Group hug?

  • TheBidenator

    Wow, Bern woke up! I wonder if his aides gave him blue meth during the break….?

    • Vecciojohn

      Give him some more!!!

  • SighSperling

    That was fucking awesome

    • ZangoCrudmonger

      Pew pew pew! Die emails, die!

  • tehbaddr

    The Bernman gets hold of that and wrangles that right into his message!!!1!!!!!

  • Callyson

    Aw, Bern and Hillz shook hands. A beautiful sight to see…

    • sw19womble

      Grown ups can disagree and still be civil.

      • Jen_Baker_VA

        I can’t imagine them agreeing on which pizza to order

  • Ricky Gay

    anderson, put that in your pipe and suck it :)

  • Mavenmaven

    at this moment, it is clear the ticket will be Clinton/Sanders.

    • tehbaddr

      Mmm Sanders/Biden perhaps?

      • Mavenmaven

        This was in response to Sanders defending Clinton during the debate.

  • DoILookAmused2u ?

    CNN will not let it go

    • LarkintheAM

      Because the Republicans won’t either.

  • Skwerl King

    HOME RUN TOUCHDOWN HAT TRICK GRAND SLAM BERNIE!

    • data_ninja

      What, no goal?

  • TheBidenator

    Hillary does have a pretty awful laugh and yet….it fits?

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    No. Sweet.

    • Spurning Beer

      Best line of the debate.

    • Toomush_Infer

      Toot suite!..

  • JMP

    Clinton to Chafee: who are you?

  • tehbaddr

    The camera caught Martin licking his chops or something.

    I’ve seen that guy before. Where?

  • BMW

    “and let me say something about the media as well…”

    Aw shit, here we go, muthafuckaz…

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    “No.” Hillary wins.

  • sw19womble

    Clinton mic drop.

  • Ricky Gay

    no anderson. just no

    Clinton just handed that guy his dick.

  • CripesAmighty

  • Shady Shopkeep

    “Me, too, me too!”

  • Jeamonn

    Sure ask the black guy about race…

    • JurisGal

      Who asked Bill Clinton?

  • Callyson

    Black Lives Matter!

  • Suse

    Chaffee looks like the love child of Red Buttons and Red Skelton.

    • Zippy

      the ghost of Michael Dukakis

  • SighSperling

    Shut the fuck up, Don Lemon.

    • JurisGal

      Honestly, can’t stand Don Lemon

    • Callyson

      Thank God they cut to the questioner quickly.

    • JMP

      “What if the debate was swallowed by a miniature black hole?”

      • Zippy

        it would still be more relevant than Don Lemon

  • TheBidenator

    Blue meth for everyone during the break! Jim Webb’s neck biting sleeper hold was taken off the entire stage and now they’re all fired up.

  • Mavenmaven

    But O’Malley wants to be considered for VP too.

  • Shady Shopkeep

    That’s a stumper.

  • Vegan and Tiara

    Gotcha question from the audience! Did not see that coming. Very Spanish Inquisitiony.

  • Vecciojohn

    Well played, HRC, well played.

  • Jan_in_the_pan

    I’ve been out having a lovely time with friends, and I just got home. What have I missed?

    • Biff52

      You really screwed up, shoulda stayed out.

  • WHO EVER COULD HAVE SEEN THIS QUESTION COMING!!???! AMBUSH!!!

    • Vegan and Tiara

      I just said the same thing! It’s the Spanish Inquisition all over again. Also, FALSE FLAG!, too.

  • SadDemInTex

    Hillz is pretty amazing in this setting but I still love Bernie…but I feel more enthused if she is our candidate.

    • Ricky Gay

      bernie makes hillary better. heck, all of us!

    • This is the best I’ve seen her. But I still can’t tell where her… “center” is. Which is new agey and lame sounding, but it’s true. I had a good sense of Obama and where he’d compromise and where he wouldn’t. Mostly he hasn’t surprised me. I can’t say that about Clinton, even now during her second run.

      Maybe that’s my fault.

      • sw19womble

        Nope, I get that vibe too. Which is why I don’t fully trust her.
        But she needs ‘radicals’ like Sanders to drag her left.

  • SighSperling

    “Sanders got all of that one. It’s high, wayyy back. AND IT’S GONE!!!!!”

  • John Thomas

    What kind of lapel button is Bernie wearing? Is that a Wobbly pin?

  • Bitter Scribe

    Threading the needle on BLM.

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    I highly recommend Deep Eddy Limon vodka. Makes politics much more palatable.

  • TheBidenator

    Someone please explain that black lives matter is not a black supremacy movement….guh, I hate wingnuts. Oh well, let’s see how bad Jim Webb fucks this one up.

    • MilwaukeeKent

      Drives me crazy as well. Classic semantics error. The movement say Black Lives Matter, and the other side hears Other Lives Don’t. It isn’t putting one above the other, It’s highlighting a particular issue. At least O’Malley kept his mouth shut. He blew it when he got ambushed a while back.

  • Professional journalists should not pawn off their jobs on youtube. I’m all for average citizen involvement in politics – I am one, after all. But fuck, guys, ask your own questions, don’t give this veneer of populism to your decidedly non-populist efforts.

    • JurisGal

      Yeah but it is less for Don Webb to do

    • BMW

      And it was a loaded question, too.

  • Vecciojohn

    Softball. Bernie steps to the plate. He pivots. . . .

  • Jeamonn

    Fuuuuuck I’m almost out of bourbon.

    • Toomush_Infer

      • Jeamonn

        • Jen_Baker_VA

          A shit. I can share, you at all very close to middle virginia (AKA Bumblefuck USA?)

          • Jeamonn

            No but I can see it from here. (Tidewater)

    • JMP

      I’m only on my first beer, not enough insanity tonight!

    • Skwerl King

    • Suse

      I have plenty.

    • smr06va

      If you vote for him, Webb will share his……………

    • Me not sure

      METH!!!

    • Monsieur_Grumpe

      The horror!

  • Biff52

    I think it’s because China doesn’t imprison people, they shoot them in the head and charge the family for the bullet, Bernie.

  • Callyson

    We need a new New Deal! Go Hillz!

  • BMW

    Come on, it’s called “Black Lives Matter,” not “ONLY Black Lives Matter.” Jeez.

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    Bangbang Webb says what?

  • Vegan and Tiara

    Jim Webb is the drummer in the boy band. Nobody cares about him.

    • Bitter Scribe

      I’m waiting for Webb to say I fought with those Negroes. Oops there it is.

    • LarkintheAM

      No, he’s the shouty stage manager whose name no one can remember, but they all avoid him.

  • Bitter Scribe

    Webb complaining AGAIN about his time.

    • Skwerl King

      A new Eleanor Roosevelt?

  • JurisGal

    Webb is such a whiner about the time thing. He could have been the only one on the stage , given all the time and no one would care.

  • Callyson

    Wiat–it was risky for Jim Webb to bring up criminal justice reform? I thought he was a tough miiltary guy FFS…

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Maybe he is tough like Carson is tough *points at O’Malls* I believe you want the guy behind that podium, Anderson

      That’s better.

  • Spurning Beer

    We like ourselves very much, don’t we, Mr. Webb?

  • JMP

    Did you know that Jim Webb fought in Vietnam? Maybe he should mention that another dozen times.

    • Vegan and Tiara

      He’s Giulani-ing it. Noun, verb, 911. Noun, verb, Vietnam.

    • beatbort

      It’s his Rudy “911” Guiliani riff. He doesn’t play any other riffs.

  • Vecciojohn

    Hillary has moves when it comes to dick questions.

    • It’s the same dick questions over and over. It would be more remarkable if she hadn’t moves…

      • Vecciojohn

    We actually need a snarky Donald Trump answer here, candidates polling at 0.1% don’t get more time.

  • TheBidenator

    That’s right, Dubya sucked lubed Trumpy balls Bernie, you tell ’em all! This is Bernie’s wheelhouse and you can hear the Birkenstock’s in the audience clapping hard…

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    I like Hillary. I would sleep with Bernie if he would have me.

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      I’d sleep with either of them, if I am being honest with myself. And Maybe the lil O boy there who does actually look sort of nice tonight.
      But not Webb. I do not want crotch rot.

    Oh shut up Anderson, you child of a Vanderbilt.

    • Skwerl King

      I regret I have only one up vote to give.

  • BMW

    10 out of 10 Democrats agree….that George W. Bush sure sucked ass.

  • Toomush_Infer

    Oh, low blow on the 1%, Anderson…

    • Beaumarchais?

      They’re his people.

      • Jukesgrrl

        Yes, everyone forgets he’s a Vanderbilt.

        • cynmac

          No, no they don’t.

  • cousin itt

    I like how Hillz trolls the GOP.

  • Bitter Scribe

    Cooper is doing better than the CNN guy on the Republican debate but that’s not saying much.

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    Hillary has a five point plan? Satan?

  • JMP

    Cooper: You’re rich, how can you relate to the middle class?
    Clinton: Neither I or Bill were born rich, unlike some people, Mr. Vanderbilt heir.

    • beatbort

      Nailed it. I am completely over ANderson Cooper at this point.

  • Vecciojohn

    I’m with Jim Webb. I don’t get no time around here. Why does everyone talk so much and so fast. Did you know I’m a marine? Not me, Jim. Bernie is scary looking. Can we go home now?

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      …are you at the library or something?

      • sw19womble

        AOL?

        • Vecciojohn

          Where’s the clicker?

        • Jen_Baker_VA

          I learned today that yahoo was still a thing. A customer gave me his email and I went Yahoo is still a thing?
          He was not amoosed

      • Vecciojohn

        Can you see me? Can you? CAN YOU?? Why are you tormenting me? Why? WHY?

    • Toomush_Infer

      We don’ need no stinkin’ whiners….

      • Vecciojohn

        Or any fuckin’ Shriners, if ya ask me. Fuk .. Kids.. Snert!

  • Me not sure

    Fight it out!

  • Suse

    Hillz is kicking ass.

  • TheBidenator

    Why doesn’t anyone ask Trump how the fuck a guy who’s been born rich and rich his entire life would expect anyone to believe he can relate to anyone? Fuck the presumption of some of these questions is pissing me off…

    • Biff52

      Wait, what channel are you on?

      • TheBidenator

        Uh, AOTK?

    • Joshua Norton

      If you see Trump talking you’re doing something wrong!

  • Callyson

    The economy does better under a Democrat in the White House. Hillz needs to repeat that on a daily (hourly?) basis,

    • So say we all

    • Vegan and Tiara

      Why don’t people see this?????????

      • Takoma DC

        Because the gop is always biting its prick off to spite its body polidick.

    • Joshua Norton

      Hell, even Trump admitted that before he decided to become America’s #1 assclown.

  • Jeamonn

    I’d like to please attach my rotten performance to Bernie Sanders bad assadery.

  • JMP

    Glass Steagall! Have to give it to O’Malley for that one.

    • Thaumaturgist

      CNN online is slow too.

    • Me not sure

      Bengahzi!

    • We’re Democrats, dude.

      This was all scripted by Soros months ago…

    • cynmac

      I’m watching online and it’s lagging for me too, after that last commercial break.

    • Ricky Gay

      quit living in the past!

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    He he. First Lady Bill. Snort.

    • Yeah, like he’d take time out of his day to grow a garden or worry about kids reading. I imagine he’ll just keep on Iron Maning around the world with his foundation or whatever.

  • beatbort

    The sad thing about this debate is that it has convinced me that Anderson Cooper is just another media whore. I suppose I’m just naive to have taken so long to come to this conclusion.
    Fucking shut the fuck up about who’s “qualified” to be Commander in Chief.

  • Jeamonn

    I haven’t seen Chafee in a little bit. Is he still there?

    • cousin itt

      Who? What?

    • Shhhhh. Don’t tell cnn

  • Toomush_Infer

    How come I feel so much better about drinking with this debate? – it’s a party!…

    • Callyson

      I haven’t even had anything yet. With the exception of a couple of Jim Webb’s comments, I haven’t needed it…

  • TheBidenator

    Democrats say we must reinstate Glass-Steagle and CNN has to explain what it is to the moronic mouthbreathers drooling on themselves while they watch the debate….hey!

  • Callyson

    Shadow banking…glad you brought that up, Hillz. Now, you need to define that term for those who only get their news from corporate media…

    • DoILookAmused2u ?

      Got OTC derivatives?

  • Takoma DC

    I love when HRC re-slpains what Bernie has been saying all along. Her accent goes way way Arkansassian.

  • SighSperling

    Looking less like a debate and more like a cabinet meeting. And that’s cool with me.

    • cynmac

      True – that’s what I was hoping for.

    • Vecciojohn

      Webb for Secretary of Cyberspace! Eat hot pixels!!!!!

    • MilwaukeeKent

      Cabinet of rivals, but make Chafee Ambassador of someplace silly like Lichtenstein. Webb as Ambassador at Large for Southeast Asia, so he can continue his literary efforts. Everyone else is safe for DC.

  • Antonin Dvorak

    They aren’t saying Boo, they are saying Coo-per!

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    Break the banks. Break the shadow banks. Break the alien banks. Fucking Wall Street.

  • beatbort

    Can we kick Chafee and Webb off the island? I don’t mind listening to Hillary, Bernie and O’Mally.

    • Vecciojohn

      It’s unanimous. Make it so.

  • Bitter Scribe

    Bernie in his Wall St. wheelhouse.

  • Bitter Scribe

    Oh Bernie. You didn’t just refer to yourself in the third person did you?

  • Suse

    Is anyone watching Drumpf’s live tweeting?

    • Callyson

    • Dok is.

      • Zippy

        short straw?

      • DoILookAmused2u ?

        Poor guy

      • I will swig some vodka in his honor.

        Of course it does him no good.

        But I’ll feel better.

      • cynmac

        Poor man.

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    I love me the Bernie rants.

  • TheBidenator

    Alan Greenspan….does anyone have that immortal “Ayn Rand” comic by Benjamin Frisch on favorites? Best Wonkette comic ever…

  • tomamitai

    Is betting that the people you lent money to are going to default “speculation”? Sounds more like fraud to me.

  • moonpie

    Hillary, you are not a champion for trying to reinstate Glass Steagall, give me a break. You’re just as in bed with the banks as the GOP.

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    Bernie is going to have a heart attack if he doesn’t stop caring.

  • SighSperling

    I said “cut it out!” And I pointed my finger, very, VERY pointedly.

        If by won you mean had my portfolio reduced to 1/2 it’s value in 2 months, then yeah.

    • And Wall Street won.

    • sw19womble

      And Wall Street won.

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Triple answer below. DRINK!

    • Beaumarchais?

      Great minds think alike! Now, in harmony…

      • Vegan and Tiara

        I fought the wall, and the wall won!

    • Valkyrie

      And Wall Street won. (All the cool kids are saying it.)

    • Jukesgrrl

      She gave it suggestions. That’s not fighting in my book.

  • BMW

    I am getting the impression Chaffee is just there to pad his resume and Webb’s there because his wife wanted him out of the house.

    • Zippy

      free liquor

      • Vecciojohn

        Why was I not told of this?

    • JMP

      Or he’s running for VP.

      • sw19womble

        O’Malley cockblocking him.

      • beatbort

        For the GOP ticket. The guy would put a speed freak to sleep.

      • Jukesgrrl

        He was a U.S. senator and he thought THAT was too boring. How could he want to be VP?

    • cynmac

      The argument was that unless they were on the debate stage, no one would know they were running. And people still don’t. Didn’t help either one.

    • disqus_lWwzrwNaw6

      If you were Webb’s wife, you’d want him out of the house too. What a big old pompous self-important bore. If somebody’s paying this guy big bucks to be some kind of spoiler, all I can say is, they’re sure not getting their money’s worth.

  • cynmac

    Hillz, WTF. You go to Wall Street weekly.

  • Skwerl King

    • Monsieur_Grumpe

      She’s spanking mad.

    • Biff52

      I liked how she said she represented Wall Street. IN THE SENATE JEEZUs

  • Jeamonn

    Yeah, but that change wasn’t made yesterday Hillary.

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    Oh my God! Wall Street regulates Congress! I’m surprised Bernie doesn’t have a red laser dot on his forehead right now.

  • John Thomas

    The Donald tweeted that there is no STAR on stage. What channel is he watching?

    • BMW

      Trump watches something besides himself?

    • smr06va

      He’s looking into a mirror……………

    • Zippy

      his own

    • LarkintheAM

      And who the fuck cares what he thinks?

    • Ricky Gay

      Channel Trump. It is a camera on his own dick. closed circuit tho they tell him others can see it. and it is huuuuge

  • Beaumarchais?

    This is the essential part of the entire debate for the next year.

  • cousin itt

    Hillz was besties with Al Gore.

  • moonpie

    Bill Clinton signed the bill to get rid of Glass Steagall. Sorry Hillary, you haven’t flip-flopped that much. You’ve never come out to reinstate it, you’re full of it..

    • Anarchy Pony

    Oh, golly gee, everyone does it.

    Hillary will not be “Driving Miss Hillary” as president….that’s good to know and yet, Uncle Ben is sad.

  • cousin itt

    Hank, you are a fucking turd!

  • LeftNotRightISIT

    Hillary says she was against wall street when she was senator from ny ? Really – you freaking liar ! She f*cks wall street types !!!

  • Bitter Scribe

    Careful, Bernie. You’re getting into Demagogueryville.

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Let ‘im Demmi all he wants. If the ratfaced clown car can do it and get their base pumped to the point of insensibility, maybe we need a little demagoguery

      • Bitter Scribe

        Maybe, but that shit has a way of not working out in the long term.

    • cousin itt

      I have to agree. But someone has to say these things on a national stage.

  • Jeamonn

    I don’t know what ‘rigged’ means, Anderson.

    • JurisGal

      See:

  • Takoma DC

  • SighSperling

    I’m (hic) Jim We-(hic) Webb and I…I…where am I?

  • tehbaddr

    Think it’s safe to say, this is the last of Webb we’ll have to see this time around.

    • White rights guy? Last time we’re seeing him at all…

      • tehbaddr

        Oh no, you missed the point. We shouldn’t see him in the next debate. Maybe in another 4 years.

    • Yeah. At this point I feel a bit bad for him. He seems earnest, well-meaning. But a bit too crazy and petulant. Another line of work might be better for him.

      • tehbaddr

        Agreed, this is not his calling.

  • Bitter Scribe

    Webb complaining AGAIN about his time. Jaysus. Semper Whine.

  • FukuiSanYesOta

    Will Jim Webb EVER stop whinging about speaking time? It’s not a good look.

    • Takoma DC

      I know! He’s MARINE!

      I hope I get the same amount of time over here. Jim Whiney Webb

      • clubseal

        I know it’s probably a typo, but it appears that you’re saying Jim Webb is aquatic life. Or perhaps that he’s Aquaman.

  • Oginikwe

    C’mon Webb spit it out!

  • JoeChristmas

    Those poor CEO’s that only made $5 billion!

  • moonpie

    Webb is such a whiner!!!

  • JMP

    For once, I agree with Cooper; Webb’s rambling is wasting our time.

  • Skwerl King

    Bernie just won a chunk of the GOP conspiracy nut bags.

  • Shady Shopkeep

    I think Jim Webb swallowed a bowling ball, and it’s trying to get out.

  • Vegan and Tiara

    Jim Webb “someone PLEASE pay attention to me!”

  • Callyson

    Jesus, Jim Webb can’t answer ONE FUCKING QUESTION within the time limits, can he?

    • Wombat

      Can’t answer one question without whining about time limits, amirite.

      Also too: How much Botox has that guy had?

      • Bitter Scribe

        Enough so his collar doesn’t fit, apparently.

  • Usedtobeyellerdawg

    Ok, fuck it. I’m going Bernie. I live in Texas. It’s a matter of spitting into the wind or spitting harder into the wind anyway.

    • cynmac

      Not a good answer. Oh, boy.

  • sw19womble

    Chafee didn’t know what was happening! His father had died!

    • Beaumarchais?

      Ya know, I would say something like that, which is why I’m not running.

    • Spurning Beer

      He had just been appointed to fill out his father’s term in the Senate. His dad had been Nixon’s Secretary of the Navy. There is a learning curve to escaping Republicanism.

      • cynmac

        Nah. Some of us never signed up for Republicanism.

    • Biff52

      He should maybe ask Joe Biden about sadness in office…

    Jim Webb: “We can’t bust heads like we used to. But we have our ways. One trick is to tell stories that don’t go anywhere. Like the time I caught the ferry to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for m’shoe. So I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on ’em. “Gimme five bees for a quarter,” you’d say. Now where were we… oh yeah. The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. I didn’t have any white onions, because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones…”

        • Zippy

          prolly

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Fuck taxing them. Make it unlegal. Speculating with other people’s money should not be legal

  • timpundit

    Chafee voted for something while high, lol

    • Takoma DC

      Well he used to be a republican.

  • LeftNotRightISIT

    So many people so little time to bash.

  • JoeChristmas

    I say drug test the students!!

    • Beaumarchais?

      No, student-test the drugs!

      • tomamitai

        I think they’re already doing that. I know I did when I was a student.

    • Drug test the Democrats

      I say drug test the drugs!

    -Doc Bernie Brown

  • JMP

    Yes, you worked when you went to college, when college was practically free compared to what it is today. I usually like Hilary, but she’s coming off “kids get off my lawn” with this one.

    • Callyson

      Well, she did also say colleges have to get their costs down. I worked my way through Berkeley (Dad helped but I covered some costs too) but there is no way in hell I could do that today with what they charge…

      • JMP

        Yeah, prices were bad enough when I went to school but there is no way my family could have afforded my school’s prices today – and it, the University of Chicago, currently has an Ivy League style student body that’s nearly all from super-rich families, unlike the diverse one it it had when I went there.

  • TheBidenator

    I wonder how these Democratic answers would be if they were run through the Donald Trump language leveler…

  • tomamitai

    Why can’t the fed lend the money they create directly to people for college and homes instead of filtering it through big banks who take a huge cut?

    • Beaumarchais?

      Socialist!

  • Skwerl King

    Hillz: “I don’t really know what modern college is all about.”

  • Bitter Scribe

    Attn. Bernie: Nobody on that stage wants to cut Social Sec.

  • Ricky Gay

    Hillary was a disappointment long before the rest of these folks. So she has that.

  • tehbaddr

    The Bernman, is on it, every time Hillz says something, ha has the real progressive view.

    • sw19womble

      Dragging her to the left.

    • Vegan and Tiara

      That family knows a lot about killing dogs, that’s for sure.

    • Zippy

      I’d trust that chef before I’d trust Fuckbee’s kid

    • John Thomas

      Fuck Huckabee with a rusty auger.

      • sw19womble

        What have rusty augers ever done to you!

    • LarkintheAM

    • DemmeFatale

      Yes, Mike.

      That’s all we need: Mike Huckface piping in.

    • Jeamonn

      That’s really out of character for Huckabee….I’m surprised.

    • Mavenmaven

      I guess Huckabee isn’t courting the Asian vote either.

    • Anarchy Pony

      “How dare Bernie propose doing useful things with tax dollars!”

    • Spurning Beer

      So now he’s a dermatologist and a restaurant critic, too.

      • ZangoCrudmonger

        And here I thought he was simply a xenophobic cunt.

    • JurisGal

      He’s a stone cold fool.

    • He’s such a folksy monster. It’s like if Prairie Home Companion wanted to genocide me.

    • Jenny

      Har har the adults are having serious talks, how can I get attention???!

    • Wombat

      So Huckabee tells a racist joke and then suggests that racism is only a thing because of sin.

      I must wonder: Is Huckabee’s racism a result of his support for a child molester and his family, his cover up of his own son’s animal cruelty, his gluttony, or his constant rejection of the very values he so ardently claims to espouse? Alternatively, is he just an ass?

      Discuss.

      • cynmac

        Ass!

      • data_ninja

        AOT, K.

      That’s what Webb said

  • Callyson

    OT, but Christ I hate the auto-refresh on Disqus. ShyPixel, is there any way of turning it off?

      He reminds me of this guy:

      • The Wanderer

        Fire up the interociter!

  • Bitter Scribe

    Webb: My wife was an immigrant from Asia.

    BFD. So was John Derbyshire’s, Phil Gramm’s…

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Which wife, tho. first, second, third, or the soon to be fourth?

    • Beaumarchais?

      Mitch McConnell…

    • beatbort

      My wife’s from Ireland. DO I get a fucking cookie? Jesus. What a sour man.

      • Zippy

        did someone say cookies?

    • Vegan and Tiara

      Rupert Murdoch’s.

  • FauxAntocles

    The Donald thinks there are too many real issues in this debate.

  • Callyson

    Hillary: “The Republicans suck on this issue, don’t they?”

  • Skwerl King

    Boring! Please someone ask a question about how the candidates will singlehandedly fight the Sarlacc in Jabba’s lair.

  • JMP

    Clinton: Everyone, remember how racist every single Republican was talking about immigration?

  • alwayspunkindrublic

    Gotta tell y’all…reading the comments while not actually watching the debate is both lol hilarious and nearly hallucinogenic.

    • Beaumarchais?

      What comments?

      • alwayspunkindrublic

        Guess that’s where the “hallucinogenic” part comes in.

      • I’ve heard that if you make a big enough donation, you get upgraded to the comments option.

    • data_ninja

      There’s a debate going on?

        • cousin itt

          I prefer DOs over MDs.
          .

          • Jen_Baker_VA

            I prefer…well hell. Lived in a lot of states in my time and it is hard to choose the one I liked /least/.
            I actually quite liked Iowa actually. Quiet, rural, bad water but super clean air and great music in the quad cities

      • sw19womble

        Neither does O’Malley… I think he’s angling for a move to DC ;p

  • Vegan and Tiara

    Donald Trump, carnival barker! Point to O’Malley!

  • FukuiSanYesOta

    This used car salesman guy, Mark Mixalot or whatever, is growing on me a bit. Calling Trumpy a carnival barker? Like it.

    • BMW

      Jumping on Donald Trump at a Democratic debate is a little like bashing the Yankees at Fenway Park, though.

  • LeftNotRightISIT

    So how f*cked up is america when they can look at the republican debate and the democratic debate and and not choose the Democrats ? People are uninformed and under informed by slogans and bumper sticker propaganda. Sad.

    • Ricky Gay

      THIS

    • Yeah, I don’t get it. I looked at Donald Trump’s twitter feed and it’s full of crazy people. And it terrifies me that they vote.

      • Anarchy Pony

        This is how fascism comes to america.

      • cynmac

        You looked?!? Poor babby.

  • Bitter Scribe

    Senators are at a real disadvantage because people can always throw old votes at them.

      They need to answer “Yes, we call that governing. It is how the Government actually works”
      and then stick by it

    • Takoma DC

      She was born to pander.

    hillary, snowden? still drinking the kool aid.

  • Vecciojohn

    Bernie, do you favor unconditional surrender now, or after you’re sworn in?

  • Biff52

    Bernie wins on Snowden.

  • Snowden can be correct and also not a hero, Cooper.

    everyone is righter than Hilz regarding Snowden. I hope she takes copious notes.

    I read it as “I would romance him Thrustly”

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      reading too much of that deleted commentor with his throbbing members and gallons of sticky spooge and ramming and such what

      • Bitter Scribe

        Yeah, that guy did seem to have certain…obsessions.

  • Bitter Scribe

    The “how would you be different from Obama” question is MADE for Bernie.

  • sw19womble

    Ooh building on Obama’s successes? Debbie Wassername will not be happy about this radical strategy!

  • MilwaukeeKent

    Sorry, Hilz, you’re wrong. Snowden didn’t go the usual whistleblower route because he saw what happened to those who did. Exile, sand-bagging, side-lining, gas-lighting and punishment. Treatment of whistleblowers is one of Obama’s few bad spots, by the by.

  • Ricky Gay

    dammit. Hillary is the most electable and yet also very much the establishment candidate. She needs Bernie.

    • cousin itt

      And Liz the Warrantor!

    • Monsieur_Grumpe

    Jim Webb don’t like Bernie.

      I’m here to crush your dreams!

  • JurisGal

    The difference between the Obama admin and the Webb admin? One ain’t ever gonna happen.

  • Bitter Scribe

    Webb: I would be a good boy and never use executive authority because everyone would love me and there would never be any divisions because I would Lead with Leadership.

    • Takoma DC

      And would lead with lifts in my shoes.

  • Shady Shopkeep

    Webb takes a moment to kick Bernie’s sandcastle.

    • FukuiSanYesOta

      And discovers the anvil hidden inside.

  • Cismontane

    He.. Webb and Chafee, Lameteam, lame on Snowden.. That was a bit of a surprise.

  • Vecciojohn

    Stupid dick question deserves a contemptuous answer. Fuck you.

  • Just tuned in, and super bummed that I missed the moment when Ol’ Handsome Joe Biden answered his first question with nothing more than a wink & a flash of pearly whites before cold-cocking the mic and striding off stage trailed by a tornado of tossed panties and Anderson Cooper’s orgasmic screams.

    Did I miss anything else?

    • Vecciojohn

      You had to be there!

    • Vegan and Tiara

      It was AWESOME!

    • JoeChristmas

      You also missed Jim Webb talking about fighting the VC commies in ‘nam so that pinko commie Bolsheviks like Bernie don’t start revolutions.

  • Jonathan Lawson

    Ah, Webb (I foughtinViet Nam) have a crush on Bernie.

  • Jeamonn

    The major difference between my administration and Obama’s is that i will never actually have one…thank you.

    • Takoma DC

      It’s endearing though. Webb’s a dreamer. Awwwww.

  • BMW

    Ok…is Martin O’Malley running to be Hillary’s VP? If so, I don’t think it’ll work.

    • JMP

      Yes. And I think Chafee was running to be Bernie’s, before he collapsed into a puddle of flop sweat.

    • Wombat

      Doubt it — Maryland generally goes blue.

      • BMW

        Yeah…and Democrats always pick U.S. senators to be their running mates for some reason.

    Never overestimate the intelligence of the American voter, Bernie.
