First thoughts on Fox News undercard debate

So I tuned into the Trump-free debate last night. I’ll give you the summarized version of their talking points:

Huckabee- Regulations to keep workers safe are making us poor. Poor!

Santorum- not letting me in the big boy debate is unfair to the people of Iowa! Now I’m going to hang out with Trump after this, for the troops, I refuse to answer whether it means I’ll endorse him

Fiorina- I’ve done 150 events in Iowa and my single digit polling shows I’m a huge success here.

Jim Gilmore — I honestly don’t care for Iowa but I’m a Vet, listen to me!

So much evading the questions. I’ll paraphrase.

Huckabee- “Well I don’t know what “New York values” means so I’m not going to pick sides”

Santorum- “I don’t know what’s so objectionable about saying that ISIS is the world leader of all Sunnis, they call themselves a caliphate”

Fiorina-”Obama’s climate change is less dangerous than ISIS” (and huge cheers) “and Bengazi!”

Huckabee-”we just need to find a way to keep ISIS off the internet”

Gilmore-”keep Guantanamo open! I’m a vet who majored in Russian studies.”

Aargh. I can’t finish it. The first commercial break is here, and even the commercials are too Republican; a Jesus movie about converting the Romans, war games, evil NYC bankers, and Bill O’Reilly promoting his exclusive Trump interview. I’m going to bed.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
