I love how the term "clown car" is now the must use phrase of the left. It doesn't diminish the value of your opinion at all! No really, keep up the Alinsky tactics cause they really make you appear profound and thoughtful in your contributions to the discussion. Wakka wakka

That is my favorite.

Clown car is used because you have so many candidates. You have so many candidates that you need two debates because they cannot fit on the same stage. You started with - what, seventeen? Seventeen candidates? Sorry, but clown car fits.

Each party should do as they please for their primary.

Give the election debate between parties back to the LWV.

They've only "suspended" their relationship with telemundo and NBC for the debate. They still have the relationship with National Review (go figure, LOL). This looks to be a publicity stunt to play to the old, but ever popular media blame game for the base. I suspect they will kiss and make up once the RNC has milked it for what they can much as the Fox/Trump saga has unfolded.

I have no idea as I'm not sure who I'm voting for yet. And although I'm a Democrat - I will not be voting for Hillary or Sanders.

If it's such a joke - why then are all the media outlets pummeling CNBC

https://www.yahoo.com/celebrity/news...94.html?ref=gs

This is exactly why I don't consider myself a modern day Democrat. There are no serious discussions - it's a bunch of jokes and name calling. Democrats today have an I am right and you are wrong attitude - they can't think for themselves and unfortunately the Donkey symbol - fits most of you to a T.

I use to be able to have really good discussions or debates with both Republicans and Democrats. The last Democratic friend I disagreed with removed me as her friend on Facebook because I sent her an Obama joke. Instead of being an adult and just saying please don't send me any more of those jokes - they offend me - I got a long diatribe about her supporting our president and how dare I think any joke about him is funny.

All I can say is Grow UP!
