  •  So all you have to do (9+ / 0-)

    to have the best debate performance in history is:

    (a) Lie your ass off with as many words as possible per minute and refuse to stop even when your time is up.

    (b) Make false accusations about your opponent.

    (c) Say what you think the audience wants to hear rather than what you really stand for, because you stand for nothing.

    (d) Demonstrate your total cluelessness about foreign policy and/or just embrace your opponent's policies but promise to carry them out with more emphasis.

    (e) Have perfect hair and expressive eyebrows.

    Wow, even I could probably do that.  I'd have to practice the eyebrow thing, though.

    Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. Barack Obama

      for future GOP candidates, spending the entire primary/debate season flip-flopping, taking extreme right wing positions, and generally lying your ass off, is acceptable, of you have establishment and Wall Street backing. Then a few weeks before the election, etch-a-sketching the previous 12 months (and that's being kind), is also fine. Not to mention, if you're a Republican running for the highest office in the land, you don't have to release your tax returns.

      Democratic candidates, on the other hand...

        The lamestream actually expected him to veer to the left after the primaries.  GOP shills had no problem criticizing Romney for not veering to the left soon enough.

        You don't have to stand for anything in particular - it's all about what sells.

        Veering all over the map in terms of policies or ostensible "core beliefs" is par for the course, as long as it's done on the right timetable.  Anything goes.

        Democrats who are taken by surprise by the enormity of the shitstream being spewed and/or try to have a real debate will be called losers.
