What do you think?

Will you be watching the corporate-media circle jerk?

Do you really believe in it?

Should be good theatre. I want to see the debacle first hand.
I've heard enough sound bites from media "sources".
I'll be sure to give an honest no holds barred report on my findings.

I wouldn't watch it hoping for useful information or to see something I haven't already seen but, as a surreal reality show....absolutely

You know as soon as anything interesting happens you will be hunting and pecking around on Youtube trying to find the bits.
I intend to evaluate and compare throat wattles, nose hair, the use of "uh" or "wall" in a sentence, shitty side glances,
and a host of other traits and mannerisms displayed by the candidates.
I will no doubt be forced to resort to extreme profanity in describing portions of this to those of you who refuse to
witness it for yourselves.
My apologies in advance.

I don't have the stamina to "fact check" them. I'll just assume both are lying 100% of the time and enjoy the show

Something inside me is saying that these two are really close friends orchestrating the conspiracy
to elect Hilary Clinton and establish Democrat rule in Congress.
And after the last several years of biased jerk-off top leadership with the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Karl Rove, I'm kinda happy to see the Republicans tank completely. You reap what you sow.
In any event it should be quite a show.

Clinton has a certain look. A look that says in a quiet assured monotone voice: "Remember Vince Foster,... don`t ever fuck with me." I`ve seen this look a couple times during her career and it is a scary look. Luckily for her, last night she kept that look holstered and showed us a mix of self assured lady, diplomat and pedantic school marm. Trump, well I`ll get on with him in a moment.
I watched the whole stupid fucked up sickening mess.
I started out with a homemade tally/scorepad with a simple column list of things to listen for and other "traits" displayed.
My criteria was listed as such:
1) Saying: "Uh"
2) Saying: "Excuse me" (something Trump rudely says as he talks over people that drives me fucknuts.)
3) Saying: "Wall"
4) Saying: "Terror/Terrorism/Terrorist"
5) Pointing at opponent.
6) "Booger-flick fingers" (hand gesture placing thumb and forefinger together in a pre-flick posture and using that to percussively puncuate a point.)
7) Laughing
Right off the bat Trump started out with a slurry of sloppy "uhs"(a sign of weakness and unpreparedness in speaking) and my god talk about fucking booger flick fingers. Those stubby little digits were flying everywhere both on and off screen.
I started making a tally and using hash marks in groups of 5 and 10 to try and manage to keep up with this maniacal cocksuckers flying fingers, but after 20 minutes of back and forth, my count was a complete loss and I was out of energy and paper space for that so I took a rest and sipped an ice cold Warsteiner Dunkel beer.
I tried to take in the rest without my constant devotion to my notes. I only took the occasional tally after that. I did notice that Hilary also started in with the booger flick fingers, but not nearly as often or insanely as her opponent. I never heard the mention of a "Wall"(thank god), perhaps they will bring that up in a future debate, but I hope not.
Clinton was the first to mention Terrorism, surprisingly, but Trump soon chimed right in with his chicken shit whining about crime and frisking and trying to blame everything bad in American history on Clinton.
Both only pointed directly at each other a couple times, but that was enough.
I noticed Clinton laughing a couple times at the outrageous horseshit she was witnessing, but Trump stood somber and pursed lipped throughout, looked mad as hell.
A few observations. Clinton did look a bit tired, but by the end of it I was proud that she held it together and maintained getting a few points out in spite of the 2 minute time constraints that she pretty well adhered to, and the constant barrage of interruptions and bile being spewed by Trump.
Trump. I didn`t need to see any of this debate to finally realize he was an aggressive, egotistical, entitled, lying, manipulating mother-fucking cock-sucker, but I'm glad he pulled it out again in front of such a large audience.
Apparently he is being held somehow to a different standard from anyone else in politics. He overshot his debate times constantly, abused the debate process completely by his rudeness, interruptions, bullying the moderator and his opponent, ignoring facts and questions, even using his signature "excuse me" as he talked over the moderator who I guess was afraid Trump`s head would explode and just gave up challenging him. Can no one talk back to the Trump? WTF anyway? How the FUCK did he get away with behaving like that?

Fucking work.

To be continued...

I'd say she was rehearsed, robotic and smug like we are used to.

Yes...Being a political animal for 30 years does tend to make one more skilled at a podium delivering stale talking points that she doesn't even remotely look like she believes in. I won't even bring Trump into it. He never was a factor.

Haven't seen two worst options presented since Gary Gilmore some 40 years ago

He can vote for whomever he wishes, but his vote like everyone else's in the american electorate won't count for anything more than a hour or two waiting to press a meaningless lever (other levers purportedly count for something, or someone). You only need to remember our 2000 presidential election, when you europeans were laughing your collective arses off and rightly so, over an electoral college tie, that forced our 'government' to go to their supreme court to determine the winner. Interesting to note that our media declared bush the landslide winner for weeks before the election, which seemed to have driven the popular vote to the point that it toppled bush, by nearly 545,000 votes.

I was surprised as anyone that y'all chose Brexit, because i figured the fix would've been in for remaining with europe's union. Goes to show you have a legitimate election process on your side of the pond. Something the american electorate could only hope to aspire to someday.
