Greetings, my good gentle-readers. If you hearken back to my last scribblings on the erudite interchange between the erstwhile hopeful nominees in the party of the venal, er, venerable Ronald Regan, I was informed that I was a dumb f* – by the way if one cannot bring oneself to type “dumbfuck” then perhaps one should find an acceptable substitute that does not offend one’s delicate sensitivities, yes? – for not affording the property dignity to such an important occasion. I unkindly told said commenter to go fuck him/herself**, and while I still stand by that sentiment, I have taken his/her admonishments to heart. Therefore, I will treat this debate sponsored by Fox News, well-renowned for being fair and balanced and shit–take mushrooms***, with all the pomp and circumstance that it deserves. So, I shall slip on my smoking jacket, tamp down the tobacco in my briar pipe, and gently swirl the cognac in my brandy snifter as I proffer thoughtful commentary of the GOP debate tonight.
Important information, I have a tai chi class until 7:30 p.m., asiangrrlMN**** time, and the debate is only livestreaming on FoxNews.com, starting at 8 p.m., asiangrrlMN time. Therefore, I will probably have to join the shenanigans already in process. I highly doubt I will miss anything of import, but if I do, you must all inform me as I will schedule this to post at 7:45 p.m. In other words, we will be doing this bollocks live, whether I am present or not.
(Pray, good people, follow the jump for more erudite discussion)
