Round Five

Tonight is the fifth Republican presidential primary debate, which will be hosted by CNN and Salem Radio at the Venetian in Las Vegas, a perfect location for a bunch of shitheads who are desperate to gamble with the nation's future.

Are you so excited for another presidential debate?! If you are so excited about another presidential debate that you can barely contain your enthusiasm, please check this box: □

Tonight's debate will feature fully nine candidates on the main stage: Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, John Kasich, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Donald Trump.

Lindsey Graham, Mike Huckabee, George Pataki, and Rick Santorum aren't polling high enough to make the cut, so they'll be relegated to the also-rans pre-debate.

Is Jim Gilmore even still running for president? Apparently! "Jim Gilmore 'ain't going anywhere,' insists he has a path to victory in presidential race." Maybe he should dial it down a notch and just work on finding a path into a debate.

Am I going to watch the debate? Maybe! Am I going to live-tweet it? Maybe!

Irrespective of my debate decision-making, here is a space for discussion about the debate, before and during. Spoiler Alert: Donald Trump is going to say a lot of garbage words!
