Welp. Looks like Trump’s gonna go full Breitbart – Bill Clinton’s illegitimate child?

So… how ugly is it going to get?

    By the way, this supposed illegimate son already had a DNA test performed using the ….um material on Monica’s dress. Bill was found not to be the father.

  2. Delaware Dem says:

  3. Jason330 says:

    Trump is now running for the Presdency of the Hermosa Spring Florida retirement village and gun ranch.

  4. cassandra m says:

    So what’s everyone drinkig? We’ve got prosecco.

  5. pandora says:

    By we she means us!

  6. Delaware Dem says:

    LOL. Flying Fish Hopfish IPA

  7. Paula says:

    I’m tempting disaster and doing the dishes while I listen on the radio. If you hear about a woman who slit her wrist with a broken glass at the 27 minute mark, that will be me!

  8. pandora says:

    Oh no, Paula! Be careful!

  9. Prop Joe says:

    Yards Pynk… Case ain’t gonna drink itself!

  10. cassandra m says:

    So now he’s confused about deportation.

  11. puck says:

    Hillary tries to deflect wikileaks revelations with a “fruit of the poisoned tree” defense – “Yeah, but that came from Russian hacking, so it doesn’t count.”

  12. Paula says:

    @Pandora — still here! I think this is the best moderated debate so far. So far.

  13. pandora says:


    Trump’s losing it. She’s getting under his skin. Puppet! Bwhahahaha!

  14. Paula says:

    I like Clinton’s demeanor tonight. She seems calm and self-assured.

  15. Paula says:

    OK, back to the dishes — nothing like dishing and dishes together.

  16. Jason330 says:


  17. Ben says:

    1. I have already finished my allotment of booze.

    2. Bad hombres. Wow.

  18. Prop Joe says:

    Why can’t these debates operate like trial arguments at the appellate level where there’s a green, yellow, and red light and the mic cuts off when the red light goes off! Two minutes for green, one minute for the yellow rebuttal, then the Shut The Fuck Up light comes on and no more audio for you…

    By the way, I’m guessing it’s at the appellate level because that’s where I saw it on Law & Order!

  19. Prop Joe says:

    So HRC and Obama paid people $1500 a pop to start violence at Trump rallies and that all of the accusations are orchestrated by her campaign…

    I need another beer.

  20. chris says:

    No minds being changed tonight…

  21. Paula says:

    My new slogan is “I’m appalled with her” (not at her, but with her at Trump). Oh well, looks like I’m going to have to come up with a clearer slogan. 😀

  22. cassandra m says:


    Mention of John Podesta did it!

  23. Paula says:

    LOL Casandra! What’s the prize?

  24. Prop Joe says:

    Your prize is 18 more days of this bullshit!

  25. Liberal Elite says:

    What a wonderful and what a terrible one minute closing statement.

    The contrast could not be greater!

    That could be a very effective 2 minute campaign ad.

  26. ben says:

    such a nasty piece of crap.

  27. Jason330 says:

    A sad milestone, the First time a major party candidate has suggested that he would not accept the results of the election.

  28. Paula says:

    Yeah, Jason, that’s what I am mulling over right now.

  29. Jason330 says:

    Listening to MSNBC now… Holy shit, Steve Schmidt it going to town on Trump.

  30. Paula says:

    The PBS pundits are incredibly muted tonight. They seem shell-shocked and exhausted.

  31. Prop Joe says:

    I wonder if Highmark will cover treatment for an election-induced PTSD diagnosis…

  32. Liberal Elite says:

    Trump just lost about 10% of his market prediction value.
    It might increase to a 20% loss. Not a great night for him.

  33. Brooke says:

    I don’t know how anyone can watch this stuff at a debate party. People would lose all respect for me if they heard my language.

  34. cassandra_m says:

    You just need to be at the right debate party, then.

  35. mouse says:

    I fell asleep again

  36. mouse says:

    I’m confused, I thought it was McCain with the illegitimate black child in one of the slave states
