One Lump of Stupid or Two, Reince?


Hey guys, remember the other day when obvious anagram Reince Preibus (thanks Charlie!) sort of punted his job to Fox News and told them to figure out how to handle Y’all Qaeda’s debates because he is really bad at his job?

Well Fox News has done just that and in such a way that it benefits Fox! From Tiger Beat on the Potomac (Thanks again, Charlie):

The GOP’s debate problem
Forget about early state chicken dinners and candidate meet-and-greets. For many Republican White House hopefuls, their time might be better spent working cable TV green rooms.

Here’s the gist of it: because Fox now sets the ground rules, it turns out that the candidates with the most national name recognition will be invited to the debate, which means that the candidates who go on news shows the most are going to poll better, and will be invited. And Fox, of course, will benefit from increased eyeballs watching their shows. Win-Win!

“It’s the [Donald] Trump problem,” said Florida GOP strategist Rick Wilson. “He’s an entirely unserious candidate but one with very serious name ID.”

“Huckabee, who’s been out of office for eight years, and Carson currently rank sixth and seventh in the national polls, respectively, and thus would qualify for the first debate if it were held today. But announced and prospective candidates such as Ohio Gov. John Kasich, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Fiorina — the only woman in the field — would not meet the threshold.”

I’m betting an Amero that somehow they will find a way to rig it such that their Rodham-Clinton defense shield Carly ‘Fire ‘Em All’ Fiorina will somehow be included. Expect to see her on every show on Fox for the next month.

  1. Swear to doG, Carly Fiorina consistently looks like she is about to go for the throat of your youngest child, or barring that, every squirrel in your yard. She reaaalllyy would benefit from Zen, yoga, prozac…

    Face meant for radio, voice made for mime.

      Paleo – I think a blowdart of thorazine and a polo mallet might be called for. But I defer to your expertise in these matters.

    I think Huckabee’s “what Josh Duggar did was inexcuseable, but I’m going to excuse him” bit will torpedo his campaign. Will Fox treally put the most vocal pro-child molester candidate on stage? The other knuckleheads may have taken their picture with Josh, but Huck’s the only one making statements in support of him.

    • I just did some research on this thing and wrote a bit about it. This has the possibility of getting far uglier, and Huckie’s now thrust himself into the middle of it.

      The Huckster is stupid, but possesses a certain feral cunning. He’s pulled off his version of the Palin #7 for many long times now. I genuinely agree with most that he’s pumping up his visibility with the water-headed 27% because he needs a jet ski or several visits with an endocrinologist.

    Why don’t they just go with the ‘Who’s Got Talent?’ format and let’s just find out once and for all which one of them can sing and dance the best. The judges could be the Koch brothers, Roger Ailes, Rupert Murdoch and Zombie Reagan.


    • Who judges the “Let The Eagle Fly” karaoke? And I do not need to see any of them in a banana hammock, so the swimsuit portion is out.

      Zombie Reagan in a Speedo? Let’s just say Nooners will be able to slide onto the stage and leave it at that.
