Okay so as usual I will be posting witty, not so witty, and confusing remarks throughout the night, depending upon my level of inebriation.What does the #GOPDebate look like at #CUBoulder? @JesseAPaul, @ItsMeSaraG, @joeybunch, @JonMurray are all on site. pic.twitter.com/iguLdkZW8U— The Denver Post (@denverpost) October 28, 2015
I will also be posting remarks on Twitter so you can follow along there if you would like as well.
I expect that tonight that we will see some of the candidates desperately trying to get news coverage by attacking Donald Trump, saying something terribly ignorant that sounds like wisdom to their base, or perhaps setting themselves on fire. (I'm hoping for that last one. Rand Paul looks especially flammable.)
I have little doubt that since Hillary has now ground her heel into the temple of the House Benghazi Committee and made them cry uncle, that she will also be a favorite target.
Which of course only works in her favor.
So now that you have on your comfortable debate wearing sweatpants, and your bowl of popcorn at the ready, let's sit back and watch the show. (I have it on good authority that there will be clowns.)
Update: Wonkette is not impressed that you have to have cable in order to watch this debate:

Update 3: Who didn't see this coming?
Gee I wonder why nothing gets done in Congress when Republicans have the majority?Only way for moderators to control #GOPDebate is to have ability to cut off mics. This is bordering on mayhem at times.— Connie Schultz (@ConnieSchultz) October 29, 2015
Update 4: Some of my more inspired tweets.
Ask @tedcruz a question and he attacks the media. Now where did he learn that? #GOPDebate pic.twitter.com/HjqGRw204F— Gryphen 2009 (@Gryphen2009) October 29, 2015
It appears that @RandPaul did not allow his toupee to dry long enough after hosing it off before the #GOPDebate— Gryphen 2009 (@Gryphen2009) October 29, 2015
The candidates are no longer listening to the moderators. Anarchy reigns! Just like if one of them actually won the presidency. #GOPDebate— Gryphen 2009 (@Gryphen2009) October 29, 2015
Update 5: Hillary seems somewhat unimpressed with the GOP presidential candidates.
