Activist Monday: Question Time…
Posted August 3, 2015on:
Good Monday, all! I am positively plotzing with excitement today, as this week we’ll see the very first Republican debates of the 2016 election season! Ah, I can just smell that odeur de Wingnut in the air….that peculiar mixture of religious insanity, cheap hucksterism, rage against everyone who isn’t male, white and Christian, and heartless, ravening greed! And lest you think you will be cheated out of listening to, and watching, all those exuding that intoxicating scent, fear not! On Thursday, August 6, there will be not just one, but two Republican debates, including the full multitude of wackadoodles currently pretending to be Presidential material. Rejoice!!
Perhaps I shouldn’t be quite so thrilled, since no less an expert than Newt Gingrich seems to feel things may not go so well. Oh noooooo…..
“There is more downside than upside for most candidates, and the first goal is to try not to self-destruct,” said former House speaker Newt Gingrich, who ran for the GOP nomination in 2012.
“You don’t want to get in a situation where you knock yourself out,” Gingrich said. “The candidates ought to figure out what their message is for the American people rather than worrying too much about the back-and-forth with others.”
But the presence of Trump, who has in recent days attacked former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and former Texas governor Rick Perry, makes calculations more difficult. Every candidate will have a strategy for making a memorable impression. “Every candidate has to have a Trump strategy” as well, said an experienced GOP operative.
Hahaha! Oh my goodness…I can hardly contain my anticipation. We’ll get two hours of blooper reel out of this, and months, years of satire! I truly wish I could be in the audience so I could make sure to help them crash and burn with some questions that would make them show their true stinky colors, like, for example:
- How many troops are you prepared to deploy to stop women from having abortions?
- If a conflict arises between the Constitution and the Bible, which one would you obey?
- Should we use nukes to bomb Iran?
- Was Barack Obama born in America?
- Is Hillary Clinton a member of the KKK?
What about you? What questions would you ask them if you could? Post them in the comments. Have fun!
This is an open thread. [In this video, you’ll see some more burning questions that could stump the Goopers.]
