June 26, 2019

It's about to begin: The big debate.

1. Are you interested? If so, why? Is it mainly to read Trump's tweets? I know I've been skipping all the articles on how to watch the debates and what might happen at the debates. I'm afraid it's just going to be tedious sequences of similar answers to predictable issues — we really must take climate change seriously and so forth. There will be preloaded zingers to zing. Maybe somebody will interrupt someone in a half-spontaneous way or show some unexpected charisma. But I don't expect anything interesting to happen.

2. The pulsating background is making the candidates look jittery. Maybe they are jittery, but I've got to look away because it's searing my eyeballs.

3. Beto speaks Spanish for many sentences. ADDED:

4. What was the question to Tulsi Gabbard? Please recite your bio?

5. I don't get the sideburns on Bill de Blasio... all the way to the bottom of the earlobe. Who does that? Speaking of how they look, why doesn't Beto wear the right size collar? It looks ridiculous for a man to wear a gaping collar.

6. My son John is live-blogging. Check it out. It's sure to be more substantive than anything I'm willing to do.

7. Hand-raising time. Only Warren and de Blasio raise their hand for who wants to abolish all private health insurance.

8. Whoa! The moderators lost control. De Blasio takes over and badgers Beto about private health insurance. Why would Beto defend something that's not working?, de Blasio asks, smirking.

9. Beto needs a new toupee. The natural hair has gone grayer, making the real/fake line obvious.

10. First time anyone ever said "piss" in an American presidential debate. Julian Castro declared himself "pissed off" (about our treatment of immigrants).

11. Booker is copying Beto, speaking whole sentences in Spanish.

10. Booker called Julian Castro "Jose"!

11. Trump weighs in with one word:

12. They switch over to new moderators — Rachel Maddow and Chuck Todd — but then they have a major microphone snafu. They had to go to another break, and I turned it off. I've got it on the DVR, but I don't know. There's already some sleeping going on here.

No, not interested. Watching Braves vs. Cubs. If that gets boring will switch to the Pirates/Astros of the NCAA Vandy/Michigan game. If I wanted to see a clown show I would go to the circus.

F said...

"pre-bored". Very well said. I am sure in 2 hours you will declare yourself "post bored."

Tank said...

See how much I can stand.

F said...

Who the hell is Tim Ryan?

Bay Area Guy said...

Vandy is pulling away from Michigan; so maybe I will try to stomach the debate among 20 inconsequential leftists who all share the same bad ideas.

rehajm said...

Gonna miss it on purpose. What constructive thing could possibly come from it?

Maybe Thunderdome style cage fight without a winner. Two nights in a row

F said...

"Pressing issues." Lester Holt. Didn't he get the talking points from the DNC? There's only one pressing issue: DJT.

Tank said...

OMG ... help!

Leland said...

I'll be interested to hear tomorrow's spin, but I long ago gave up listening to politicians speech, especially on the campaign trail. It is just pandering to the suckers.

Humperdink said...

A word I am not familiar with was used in the pregame talking about candidates relationship with each other: Comratery. Funny.

Humperdink said...

Beto goes full Spanish. What a dolt.

rehajm said...

First candidate that says Wayfair- everyone chugs.

David Begley said...

Beto talking Spanish. Great!

Bay Area Guy said...

I just turned it on and Beto started yammering in Spanish.

He is bilingually moronic.

J. Farmer said...

I'll be watching with a pre-made pitcher of gin and tonic. My husband* is in the other room reading but already knows he will have to deal with me screaming at the TV at random moments. The only candidate on this stage I have any real interest in is Tulsi Gabbard. Tomorrow will be more interesting. I want to see how Andrew Yang fares.

*Not really since we aren't married, but I'm getting tired of saying "partner" and "boyfriend" sounds ridiculous with someone you've lived with for almost 10 years. So there you have it.

rcocean said...

I'm working and have sound off. Close Caption. When O'Rourke started speaking the CC said "Foreign Language".

LOL. I hope that was spanish and not alien-speak.

David Begley said...

A college baseball game can change quickly.

Rick.T. said...

I thought about watching but decided it would be more productive spending some quality time with my radar gun and shopping for monkey shit, mango oil, and almond trees through the Althouse Amazon portal.

BleachBit-and-Hammers said...

I'm not watching.

-They will fall all over each other upping the free stuff promises
-Virtue signaling smorgasbord

When Bernie hits, a fast trip to total inebriation slosh-ville is to drink every time he says OLIGARCHS & BILLIONAIRES! BILLIONAIRES AND OLIGARCHS!

Haha. "Pre-bored" is actually an expression I've used before. My wife just smirks and books the flight anyway.

Rick.T. said...

Oh, and Vandy pulling away. Anchor down!

Senator Warren reminds me of my elementary school Principal - both were bespectacled, mean and frigid.

How are we back to Warren? No fair.

The elite will do everything they can to defeat Warren, she is fearce and would go after them for sure.

John henry said...

Has bobby O'Rourke given up? He looks like a hobo standing there speaking pidgin spanish

With his wife's billions one would think that he could afford a fresh razor blade and his own shirt. The one he's wearing looks borrowed from his bigger brother.

John Henry

Tank said...

Warren again?

rcocean said...

They'll need to cut down these debates quick. Too many boring white guys in suits.

David Begley said...

John Henry.

Three more in the next two weeks but no Biden.

rcocean said...

Is Warren being given extra time?

rcocean said...

All the questions are softballs. Gee, all the hard questions must have "For Republican only" on them.

Tank said...

Warren again?

WTF?

roesch/voltaire said...

Amy is too reasonable, one reason why I support her, but she is solid no foam here.

rcocean said...

Warren agrees with Bernie on everything. Goodbye Bernie!

J. Farmer said...

Best line of the night so far is by Klobuchar: "My plan is to do something about pharma."

'A Chorus Line' has begun.

who will be that One Singular "Sensation"?

Mark said...

At 8:22, we have heard from Warren four times already. Do you get the message, everyone else?

rcocean said...

Beto is low energy

Birkel said...

I would rather watch a debate between Althouse commenters, save the obvious loons.

David Begley said...

Can we all agree that Tulsi is beautiful?

rcocean said...

Bald white guy with beady eyes is on fire.

Bay Area Guy said...

Begley,

Yes, I could do that. But I worry Senator Warren's fussiness might slow those little critters down to the 10-15 mph range, causing me much embarrassment.

Vandy is still up 6-1 in 7th Inning.

Beasts of England said...

'Does Tulsi wear size 4 panties?'

Dang it!! I missed that question...

David Begley said...

We should have a debate. Ann and Meade ask the questions.

Drago said...

rcocean: "All the questions are softballs. Gee, all the hard questions must have "For Republican only" on them."

Its all relative.

No doubt LLR Chuck considers these questions offered up by his "brilliant" Dream Team MSNBC hero moderators far far too hard-hitting for this wonderful slate of candidates.

Remember, LLR Chuck is a huge fan of the faux conservatives who are calling for everyone to vote for ANY of these lunatic hack lefty dem candidates as well as to vote for dems at every level.

You know, the way all "real" conservatives should.

I cant wait for David French's next hot take: The Conservative Case For Supporting Hoax Rape Charges Against Republicans To Help Usher In Full Blown Socialism

J. Farmer said...

Bald white guy with beady eyes is on fire.

I still don't know who that is.

But I loved Booker's "healthcare is not only a human right, it's an American right." Huh?

rcocean said...

Back to Warren and then White Guy with the jutting chin.

Tank said...

@Begley

No, she’s disappointing.

rcocean said...

Amy is going no where. blah, blah.

Tank said...

Warren again?

Oy!

Beasts of England said...

'Bald white guy with beady eyes is on fire.'

David French?

roesch/voltaire said...

23 billion dollars the insurance companies took for themselves is a bit much so how do we reduce this with a layered coverage that includes choice.?

Mark said...

Warren has spoken six times by 8:30.

narciso said...

John Delaney,

rcocean said...

Everyone is pro Abortion. Heck, they'll drive to your house and personally give an abortion!

Birkel said...

Gabbard has a lot of pockmarks.
That isn't helpful.

But she is what I'd call a blocker.
She looks great from a block'r so away.

J. Farmer said...

23 billion dollars the insurance companies took for themselves is a bit much so how do we reduce this with a layered coverage that includes choice.?

I'm ambivalent on the Medicare-for-all programs, but reducing Medicare eligibility to age 55 might be a middle-ground proposal to pursue for now.

David Begley said...

Booker is a pure demagogue.

rcocean said...

"David French?"

No. He's an honest Democrat.

Birkel said...

Everybody be quiet.
roesch/voltaire has something stupid to say.

**shhh!!**

rcocean said...

Amazingly, little Trump bashing.

Drago said...

With so many democrats to defend and only so many hours in a day, LLR Chuck will have to be particularly judicious in how he allocates his limited Dem Defense Time.

It will be interesting to see which democrats LLR Chuck is most anxious to protect.

J. Farmer said...

But she is what I'd call a blocker.
She looks great from a block'r so away.


Haha. I'll have to remember that one. It's the less snooty version of "a Monet."

wildswan said...

I like bald guy with beady eyes also. His point that Medicare pays so little that hospitals would close is right. I'm on Medicaid and it constantly refuses payments for tests and even visits to doctors. Once it paid for a procedure but refused to pay for analysis of the results. I get treated and well treated by doctors but they are just carrying me using payments from private insurance. Medicaid for all would be a disaster unless this payment problem was acknowledged in advance and fixed.

David Begley said...

Birkel

Wrong. I was right next to her. I’ve got a picture to prove it. I nearly asked her for a date.

Bay Area Guy said...

This is a very unimpressive lot.

These people think they can run the world's largest empire?

They couldn't run the night shift at an AM-PM Mini Mart.

Birkel said...

Leftist Collectivists:
"Hey, let's take a program with a ballooning budget that delivers poor quality service that an awful lot of doctors won't take and expand the ever-loving shit out of it."

Yeah.
That will Cloward-Piven is to complete Venezuela.

MountainMan said...

David Begley said..."I’ve seen 8 of these loons in person.". And I and many others have appreciated you taking the time to go to the events and report on them here and on Powerline. I could never do it, I could not stand it. You must have a lot of patience.

Booker is speaking a foreign language per CC. Pretty sure its space alien. He looks like one.

Bay Area Guy said...

Now, Cory Booker is trying out his Spanish.

Yo no soy un gringo. Yo como Enchiladas.

Something like that.

Birkel said...

Begley,
There is a lid for every pot.

Agree to disagree.

David Begley said...

Ann

I shook hands with Beto. Real hair.

If one of these clowns start talking Latin, then I’d be impressed.

Tina Trent said...

Wow. Based on this so far, if forced, I would vote for Cory Booker.

And that is saying something. He's a bizarre puppet. Only not so bizarre as the other bizarre puppets.

I can't look at Elizabeth Warren without thinking of late stage Sandy Dennis.

rcocean said...

Del Blasio comes off as a real drama queen. Quit moving those hands!

wildswan said...

No borders.
Abortion.

walter said...

"Fearce"?
The bravery of overpromising to "move the overton window". Better typo is farce.

6. My son John is live-blogging. Check it out. It's sure to be more substantive than anything I'm willing to do.

Now that's funny right there. I don't care who you are.

I guess someone has to do it. As long as it's not me.

John Henry

rcocean said...

Let's let everybody fleeing a shithole country with a bad economy come to America to vote for the same policies they fled.

Who's with me?

walter said...

No borders on abortion.

Tank said...

Let’s be honest, these people are all awful, and it seems like the worst are getting the most time.

Bay Area Guy said...

At least Spartacus played football in college. That's more impressive than anything he's done ever since.

David Begley said...

Now the questions are in Spanish!

buwaya said...

"23 billion dollars the insurance companies took for themselves is a bit much so how do we reduce this with a layered coverage that includes choice.?"

23 billion is peanuts to your overall medical cost structure, > 3.5 trillion
Nobody is talking about 3.5 trillion.
I wonder why?

Gabbard is right.
We have private medical insurance lined up, in Spain. $260/month for two.
That is because they don't have that 500 pound gorilla that nobody discusses in the US.

That's because Spain, like Europe, doesn't have that $3.5 Trillion problem, because for all the EU its something like $1.6 Trillion.

wildswan said...

Export jobs to Central America,

walter said...

I don't believe Beta has a toupee.
He married into enough wealth to get top-notch transplants.

Birkel said...

buwaya is correct on healthcare.

Beto is a bust.

Go Amy the ecomic imperative with facts, she is too reasonable and honest to be elected.

wildswan said...

This is very wordy. And not persuasive

rcocean said...

"Based on this so far, if forced, I would vote for Cory Booker."

Really? There's something crazy about him. I don't trust him. I'd expect him to revel himself to a be a space alien - after we elected him.

Bay Area Guy said...

Tim Ryan is lost. I thought he was once reasonable, but that's gone.

Birkel said...

roesch/voltaire is trying, you guys.
Quit laughing.

J. Farmer said...

The two token Hispanic candidates (one real, one fake) are now going at it.

Birkel said...

rcocean,
After you put on the glasses it will all make sense.

David Begley said...

Tim Ryan asks docs and nurses to go to the border and work for free.

Ryan has blown his opportunity to be s moderate.

Who is the Dem moderate?

Tank said...

People who invade the country should not be criminals, they should be voting as Democrats!

Awful.

Tina Trent said...

Isn't Booker just a bald Obama?

Darkisland said...

Serious question, David,

Does O'Rourke actually speak Spanish? Could he carry on a conversation with a Spanish speaker? The few times I've heard him, including tonight, he sounds like he learned a few sentences that he can say passably well. He also sounds like it is memorized and he can say nothing else.

It's not dialect either. I been to Texas a number of times and interacted with Spanish speakers. Including in El Paso a few years ago. It's a bit different than I am used to but not much. Bobby's is just odd. Like a man who has no idea what he is saying.

What would really impress me would be for him to start talking in his ancestral language. Gaelic.

John Henry

Birkel said...

We definitely need a candidate to introduce themselves: "I've come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass. And I'm all out of bubblegum."

Fen said...

Who's the John Kerry wannabe?

Big Mike said...

De Blasio takes over and badgers Beto about private health insurance. Why would Beto defend something that's not working?, de Blasio asks, smirking.

What makes him think it isn't? Do people think Medicare is better? Has anyone thought to ask the doctors that refuse to take Medicare patients? (N.B., I'm on Medicare myself, but I'd have trouble lining up doctors without my Medigap insurance.)

rcocean said...

"Isn't Booker just a bald Obama?"

Obama had a soothing manner. Very low key. Very Smart. Booker has crazy eyes and comes off as slightly unhinged. The Bald head doesn't help.

Drago said...

r/v: "...she is too reasonable and honest to be elected."

I was particularly impressed by her jumping on the Kavanaugh has been a 2 decade leader of a maurading rape gang roving the countryside bandwagon.

I cant determine if that was more "reasonable" or more "honest".

Tina Trent said...

The rest of them are improbably making Corey Booker seem relatively articulate. The rules of physics are violated. It's like a reverse black hole improbability. It's terrifying. They're all nutso.

Birkel said...

Trick question, Fen?
After all, they're all trying to lose a presidential election.

Or are you saying one of these clowns will be a traitorous Secretary of State?
Will they have the hat?

Unknown said...

Look at how short Warren and Clobuchard are. Imagine Trump towering over them.

The Iranians are salivating at the thought at getting one of these Chamberlains in power.

Obama was a better actor and said his lines better.

Drago said...

rcocean: "Obama had a soothing manner. Very low key. Very Smart. Booker has crazy eyes and comes off as slightly unhinged. The Bald head doesn't help."

Booker is also very very very heterosexual.

Very.

Just ask the girlfriend he finally got who happens to live 3,000 miles away.

rcocean said...

I see all these debates as helping the front-runners. Especially Biden. You can't make headway when you're one person out of 10, and everyone is saying the same thing. You get drowned out in the noise.

I'll watch the one tomorrow, but anymore? Doubt it.

True. When I paused my DVR to quote him, I happened to pause on his face looking particularly insane. Should've snapped a shot. Oh well.

He's severely heterosexual, and has binders full of girlfriends.

Darkisland:

I speak Spanish. His comments sound scripted, but later on, when the moderator on the right asked his question in Spanish, O'Rourke understand and responded in a reasonable (but policy-wise tone-deaf) manner. I would say he speaks Spanish.

I would also say his policy sense is as stupid in Spanish as it is in English. There is a big difference between being able to speak a foreign language and being ab le to make good sense in that language.

Birkel said...

I asked nobody to make fun of roesch/voltaire but there you jerks go.

I wonder how the "anxious" candidates, as the moderator says, are doing during this little break. Everyone wants an anxious president.

Drago said...

Booker needs to come clean about what he's really all about.

Mayor Pete has to improve his African American support "cred".

I recommend Mayor Pete dump vanilla dude and marry Booker.
That would be an irresistable electoral gambit for most dems and ALL LLR's.

"But I loved Booker's "healthcare is not only a human right, it's an American right." Huh?"

Obviously not all Americans are human.

wildswan said...

I'm leaving. This ism't a debate, its animated FAQs. Except Baldy who they don't let speak.

rcocean said...

Beto was a disappointment. His appeal is very puzzling. He's the least impressive person there. Maybe he's trying for VP slot with black/women POTUS candidate.

Birkel said...

I think we should conduct foreign policy when we have more flexibility after the election.

Fen said...

"Now the questions are in Spanish!"

Pandering.

Though if they are going to be in a foreign language, should be Chinese.

Just found Google Earth today, zoomed down to the actual tree my LAV-25 was hull down positioned next to in Badera Somolia. Pretty wild.

Obama wore a nicely pressed suit when he was selling America down the river and forking over $140Billion to the biggest state sponsors of terror.

Obama was prone to a bleating scold..Warren as well.
At least Warren doesn't doesn't have that whistle O has at times.

Hillary was nicely dressed when she and obama handed over 20% of the US uranium reserves to Putins oligarch pals.

Then watched the last half of a Nova show about Neil Armstrong.

About Apollo 11, I wonder if people still have a sense of wonder any more? I was only on the edge of my earliest memories when the moon landing happened, but I remember the excitement around it. Is there anything any more that people can say "WOW" about? Something larger than life and good and pure and beyond imagination?

When last we were at the debates Mr. Todd said "hundreds of millions of guns would be flooding the streets."

Interesting how NBC "Journalists" just lob softballs and let them respond, while at the R debates in 2016, they were ALWAYS interrupting and debating the R candidates. OR asking them irreverent questions. In 2008, Chris Matthews was asking the R candidates if they believed in Jesus or Evolution.

Anyway, The D's will take away your guns but they'll call it "Treating a national healthcare emergency" and "Protection for kids" and not Gun Control.

Adios.

Trump would tower over Warren. She will be 71 next summer and reads visually like a scolding grandmother. Her thin, reedy voice doesn't help. Shrill, too. Very easy to imagine Trump crushing her.

Talk about your technical glitches.

Is NBC repeating a debate from 1988?

Red flag gun laws. Need the the same whacko congresscritters.

Just as an FYI, LLR Chuck delivered a classic Eddie Haskell post sucking up to Althouse before praising Gorsuch's brilluance then drawing a direct parallel to himself!

Good times.
