The GOP “Hunger Games” Presidential Debates resume tonight from the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, on CNN.
The ghost of Ronald Reagan will be weeping at the sight of the asshats that the GOP has running for president in 2016.
The main event is at 8 p.m. EDT will feature the same 10 candidates as the first one — front-runner Donald Trump, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, neurosurgeon Ben Carson, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich — as well as businesswoman Carly Fiorina, who was added to the field after the wusses at CNN caved under pressure from GOPropagandists in the media to add a woman, whether she met CNN’s qualifications or not (so Tea-Publicans do believe in affirmative action when it suits their needs.)
Before the main debate will be the “kiddie table” debate at 6 p.m. EDT featuring unpopular candidates Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. Rick Santorum, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and former New York Gov. George Pataki. Former Governor Goodhair Rick Perry of Texas hung up his spurs last week, and former Governor Jim Gilmore of Virginia failed to even qualify for the CNN debate, polling at “0” (zero) percent. Get a clue, Dude.
