GOP Debate Open Thread. Update!

Courtesy of Politico
Debate hosts: Fox News.

Candidates: Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and John Kasich. (No Ben Carson tonight as he is about to drop out.)

Time: Hell I don't know, I live in Alaska. But it starts about a half an hour after this gets posted.

What to watch for: Everybody, and I mean EVERYBODY is going to be hitting Trump from every conceivable angle. Think of that Donald Trump roast, but this time nobody is joking.

Also watch for Marco Rubio to be a little irritable because it was recently revealed that Fox News will no longer be carrying water for him in this campaign cycle.

As usual I will be tweeting my drunken responses to the "action" here.

So let's have a safe evening and remember no matter how angry you get, do not take out your feelings on your poor long suffering family members.

Do what I do, take out your frustrations on some poor sap's blog. 

Update: The moment this debate, and the GOP front runner, lost their very last shred of credibility.

    First on CNN: Team Romney explores blocking Trump at RNC

    Mitt Romney has instructed his closest advisers to explore the possibility of stopping Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, a source close to Romney's inner circle says.

    The 2012 GOP nominee's advisers are examining what a fight at the convention might look like and what rules might need revising.

    "It sounds like the plan is to lock the convention," said the source.

    Romney is focused on suppressing Trump's delegate count to prevent him from accumulating the 1,237 delegates he needs to secure the nomination.

    But implicit in Romney's request to his team to explore the possibility of a convention fight is his willingness to step in and carry the party's banner into the fall general election as the Republican nominee.

      When reminded that he begged for Donald Trump's endorsement in 2012, Romney claimed he never would have "accepted" it if Trump had been like that then, "If Trump had said 4 years ago the things he says today about the KKK, Muslims, Mexicans, disabled, I would NOT have accepted his endorsement". But Donald Trump was a birther back when Romney accepted his endorsement.

    Rubio’s path to an outright win has vanished

    His campaign is forced to turn to a delegate denial strategy against Trump.

      What path? Rubio never had an outright path to anything but obscurity. Frankly, once he admitted he finds governing 'boring,' he admitted he is not fit for the office he holds,let alone the one he wants to add to his trophy list.

    Donald Trump Gets AIDS In A New Movie

    Audiences at screenings around the world, and some even in the United States, have been cheering and applauding a macabre scene in a new film by Sacha Baron Cohen in which "Donald Trump" accidentally contracts HIV.

    "The Brothers Grimsby" opens March 11 in the U.S., though chances are you're learning that for the first time here, given a decision by Sony Pictures to limit its marketing of the satiric comedy. The studio is concerned about the reaction from the real Donald Trump, according to industry sources familiar with the situation.

    At the film's world premiere in London last week, the Daily Telegraph reported that the Trump moment was met with "loud cheering." The Metro newspaper called it a "massive cheer." A viewer at a different screening tweeted, "Went to watch Grimsby and the whole cinema clapped when Donald Trump got given AIDS in it."

    Elsewhere in Europe, there were standing ovations. The joke, done in Baron Cohen's standard over-the-top style, is proving cathartic to overseas audiences terrified by Trump's rise.

    Fox News formerly could be counted on to save the Republican Party, but as the debate tonight will likely demonstrate, Fox is powerless to stop Trump. Megyn Kelly and company will definitely try, but if the network has given up on Rubio, it is a sign that Fox News may unload both barrels on Donald Trump in a last ditch effort to deny him the delegates that he will need to clinch the nomination.

    The Republican Party is crumbling, but there may be little that Fox News can do to save the GOP from Trump.

What the H??? That is what happens when you let a right wing network take charge. They have undermined the will of the people the entire Obama term, with all the hate and lies they shouted over and over. They all deserve what they will get, but the rest of us don't. Isn't there something that can be done to censor Fox News? Get them off the air and out of business? Stop them from controlling the minds of their stupid listeners and viewers?

      Graydon Carter is the editor who called Mr. Drumpf a short fingered vulgarian who has supposedly received nasty notes about that phrase ever since. What I find interesting is this: He objected to the "short fingered" part, but never addressed what I would consider an insult: Vulgarian. Why did he not? Because he is vulgar and proud of it, otherwise I do not think he would have brought this matter up on a national stage while running for president.

      Google Illma Gore, the artist who seems to have reduced the man's pouty facial expression, small hands fleshy body into one portrait (Oh yes, she did include what seems to be a tiny, frightened bud of a circumcised penis). As cringe inducing as that last visual may be, it seems that she is the modern equivalent of the child who cries: The Emperor has no clothes.

    the donald has been up in arms about this for some time now:

    "Accusations of below-average finger size have dogged Trump for nearly 30 years. In 1988, Spy, a satirical magazine based in New York, coined an epithet for Trump that it would gleefully repeat for eight years: "short-fingered vulgarian."

    Spy, which was published from 1986 to 1998, was busy skewering celebrities and public figures as Trump was building his national profile. Proudly avaricious and braggadocious, Trump embodied the spirit of the '80s. And Spy made him a frequent target of not just insults but also elaborate practical jokes."

    3. and trump has a ready reply to anyone who dares mention his hands or what they imply:

      "Finger size also could be linked to testosterone, and has been cited as a predictor of everything from athletic prowess to ruthlessness on a trading floor. But that research — which, in any case, was conducted long after Spy first called Trump short-fingered — deals with the ratio of the length of a man's ring finger to the length of his index finger, not how long or short the fingers in question are.

      Trump was probably drawing a much less obscure conclusion: He thought Spy was implying he had a small penis. "My fingers are long and beautiful, as, it has been well documented, are various other parts of my body," he told the New York Post's Page Six in 2006. "From what I hear, the same cannot be said of editors of the failed Spy."" -from the above noted Vox article.

      what i cannot accept is that he would bring up this deep insecurity of his while actually asking people to make him president. the fact that he has a real chance is out and out scary.

    Nope...looks like we should all pack up our babies, grab the old ladies, and head on down to Brother Trump's Traveling Salvation Show.

    He'll make every American who votes for him a MILLIONAIRE!

    Trump needs two pieces to back up his statement. First, at least some
    of the hijackers needed to be married or have a girlfriend, and second,
    those people, or some family member, needed to be in the United States.

    According to the 9/11 Commission report,
    not a single hijacker had a wife, girlfriend or family member in the
    country in the days and months before the terrorists executed their
    plan.
    The 9/11 Commission report said that the FBI dug into the backgrounds of every Saudi national who flew home soon after the attacks.

    "They concluded that none of the passengers was connected to the 9/11 attacks and have since found no evidence to change that conclusion," the report said. "Our own independent review of the Saudi national involved confirms that no one with known links to terrorism departed on these flights."

      WASHINGTON, Sept. 7 - Senator Bob Graham, the Florida Democrat who is a former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, accused the White House on Tuesday of covering up evidence that might have linked Saudi Arabia to the Sept. 11 hijackers.

      Mr. Graham made the accusation in a new book and repeated it at a news conference Tuesday arranged by Senator John Kerry's presidential campaign. Republicans called the accusations "bizarre conspiracy theories," and the Saudis said they were unsubstantiated and reckless.

      The accusation stems from the Federal Bureau of Investigation's refusal to allow investigators for a Congressional inquiry and the independent Sept. 11 commission to interview an informant, Abdussattar Shaikh, who had been the landlord in San Diego of two Sept. 11 hijackers.

    Since Trump "went there", I'm weighing in on the hand-size.

    About the hand size/penis ratio, I (older lady, more than one partner) I know that it's not true.

    However. Since Trump has caused attention to this by showing his hands and saying that they are NOT small.....well, just look at the photo at the top of Gryphen's post. His hands are definitely smaller (at least shorter) than any of the other candidates on the stage and that is clear in the photo. Except for Cruz, who hid his hands under his coat.

    Re the court granting Dakota's emergency motion in part, it is interesting that the Palin plant article says they "agreed" and worked this temporary visitation issue out. If so, why would the court then rule? (I think it's more likely that DM was misled to believe that Bristol's response brief was an "agreement":

    Now the couple have agreed to a series of visits, every two weeks beginning March 18.
    Meyer will see his child for three hours at a time and the first visit will be 'supervised at Bristol's discretion.'
    Should he need to reschedule for any reason Meyer can do so with two weeks advance notice.
    Meyer has had to agree to 'respect Bristol's wishes to, the extent possible, feed Sailor breast milk.' He is permitted to Skype/Facetime Sailor 'no later than 7pm Alaska time.'
    And he cannot 'consume or be under the influence of drugs or alcohol during his visitations with Sailor.'

    ....On Thursday, the husband of a New Hampshire Republican legislator and official Trump campaign co-chair of New Hampshire’s “Veterans for Trump” coalition, was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The man, Jerry Delemus, was arrested on nine federal charges for his participation in the seditious armed standoff nearly two years ago at Cliven Bundy’s ranch. The nine charges include conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States of America (sedition), threatening a federal law enforcement officer (also sedition), and several firearm charges....
