Ok, sportsfans, this is the last debate. Can I get a “Darwin!”? Tonight’s topic is Foreign Policy. I hope we don’t get some tedious version of the kerning controversy when it comes to what happened in Benghazi. That would be death by boredom. Benghazi was a terrorist attack brought on by raging maniacal Islamic fundies having a hissy fit over some stupid movie. Here in the US, we just change the channel or push the back button or leave the theater but apparently that is too much to ask of *some* people in the middle east. What Muslim nations need to implement is a V-chip that will protect viewers from blasphemy like we can protect kiddies from naughty words and naughtier bits. It’s a bit regrettable that grown up nations insist on treating their citizens like children who are emotionally incapable of handling a little disrespect but there ya’ go. We’ve got Christian crazies over here too. Fundamentalist extremists come in all flavors of religion.
On the other hand, if a prophet is dissed somewhere in the world and you don’t hear it, is it still blasphemy?
But anyway, I’m getting a little burned out on debates and foreign policy ranks right up there with Keynesianism vs MMT for me. I might need some help liveblogging this one.
As I said last time, our “watch with the sound off” patented liveblogging technique has been shamelessly pirated by some cable news channels. So, it’s your choice, sound off or on. I’m a cord cutter (by necessity) so I watch the debates on C-Span. You can catch it here.
Once again for our conservative friends, we don’t have a dog in this fight. We don’t like either one of these guys. Obama is no liberal, not even close. The socialist party wouldn’t have him either. You’re just going to have to take our word on this because we’re liberals and you’re not. And Mitt is a Republican. That just about sums it up for us. The Republicans are an irrational mob lead by some manipulative conmen who are masquerading as a party. Many of us are voting third party. Please don’t comment party propaganda and focus group tested “memes” here. For one thing, we can spot a meme from a mile away and for another, they just irritate the s^*& out of us.
Other than that, play ball!
