Anyone else planning on watching the GOP Candidates debate this evening?

Starts at 9:00 on Fox News Channel...


...and featuring (gasp!) a Fred Thompson commercial!

Well, now I don't have to wait to see Thompson's commercial.

It just ran during the last 5 minutes of the O'Reilley factor.

He's just plugging his website.

... and the debate kicks off with talk about Thompson.

Man he is good. The debate is all about him already and the guy hasn't even announced.

...and McCain explaining why a joke is funny.

Mitt Romney looks like a Ken Doll. He should be playing a presidential candidate on the West Wing

I would be so happy if we replaced the income tax with a national sales tax. I'm poor and don't buy anything... so I'd actually be making out on that one.


Good line by Rudy about Law & Order... and a great point about being an executive. Last legislator elected president was Kennedy.

Why do we have to secure the borders AND figure out what to do with the illegals in the same law?

Why can't we secure the border FIRST (and keep new people from coming in) and then figure out what to do with those that are already here first?

If your sink is backed up and overflowing, you don't wait til you get a snake for the drain to turn off the faucet.

I'll catch the highlights later on. I'm getting other stuff done so I can tune in to Leno later on.

This question about guns is silly. Fred Thompson saying he didn't feel safe in NYC cause he couldn't carry is just pandering to the gun lobby. I'm not big on extraneous gun control, but it's a state issue. How about we just put the bad guys away. The people who are gonna rob someone are not worried about the fact that their gun is illegal.

Ron Paul makes a good point about personal responsability here. When the government mandates something, no one ever does more than is required.

36 minutes in and we got commercials. I guess they're on the XM schedule, not the KRock schedule.

Jessi's mom sounds like she has a fun fact for us all about the Space Shuttle Endeavour.

Ok so the problem with recycling paper to "Save Trees" is that most paper, from what I understand, comes from forests that the timber industry just keeps on replanting... so really, what's the point? They're just gonna grow new trees anyway....

Ugh Ron Paul bolstering this whole neo-con thing... he's not gonna make any friends in this room.


I really like Mike Huckabee. I think he'd be one to consider for VP.
