Well, RNC Chair Reince Priebus has reportedly told NBC to kiss off, no more debates on your network. It's about damn time! To start with why were we even dealing with people like this? Our candidates were just being used. Do you realize what a windfall the Republican debate was to CNBC? They don't draw dick in terms of viewership, and I mean virtually nothing, but when the Republicans come to town they get to crank up their rates to Super Bowl levels. And talk about riding a free horse to death! They would have them on for 24 hours if they thought they could get away with it. Then they turn around and dictate who will moderate, where it will be and the format. We give them all this so they can abuse the shit out of our candidates? It's insane! Plus those halfwits over at the RNC still have our people going on CNN, CBS, Tele-Goddamn-mundo and ABC where Stephie Stephanopoulos and Candy the Cow and Martha Radish will no doubt take their shots. JUST WHAT THE FUQ IS GOING ON!!? This is unfair to our candidates and unfair to Republican voters who want to see a legitimate debate, not a SNL segment. Why this happens I have no idea but it just goes to show, never underestimate the stupidity and/or desperation of an establishment Republican.
By the by, can you name any debate moderators off the top of your head? In 2012 the Republicans got Jim Lehrer (PBS), Bob Schieffer (CBS), Candy Crowley (CNN) and Martha Raddatz (ABC) in the Republican/Democrat debates. In the Republican debates, again in 2012 we had Fox thrown in a time or three but much the same. Incredibly MSNBC hosted two Republican only debates. A Republican debate hosted by MSNBC's wall-to-wall, 24/7 leftists with NO dissenting opinions ever, these people were allowed to host our stand alone Republican debates? Incidentally the Dem debates of '08 (of which there were about 30) were hosted by MTV, LOGO (the homo channel), CNN, MSNBC and all the networks. Each time only one network was the host. In other words on Aug 7th MSNBC, on Sept 9th Univision etc. But not so on December 13th, 2007. Four networks hosted on this date: Iowa Public TV, CNN, MSNBC and Fox. The questions were asked by the Des Moines Register editor, some woman named Carolyn Washburn. Gosh was Bill O'Reilly unavailable? How much input do you think Fox had?
The point is we've been stupid, it cost us dearly but now we've got an opportunity. No more cooperating (and enriching) people who hate us, want to embarrass us, or want to marginalize us. Enough! To get things off on the right foot I propose in place of the NBC debates which Chairman Priebus had the good sense to cancel (at long last) let's replace it with a debate or two with folks like Tammy Bruce, Sean Hannity, Mark Steyn, Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin. Let's get a good cross section of conservatives to ask the questions we want answered. Plus when the two nominees get together next year we must DEMAND an equal number of conservative pundits and news people participate. Fair is fair and if you're not fair to yourself then you don't respect yourself and that's the kind of people who'll end up leading us, hence Boehner and McConnell. This has to change and now's the time.
