T-Rav's Sockpuppet Theater Presents: The Bad Timing Debate

The Republicans seem to have stupidly decided to stage a debate tonight (9:00 EST), starting just after the NFL playoff game between the Saint and Lions begins. Good luck with that.

With the games starting in half an hour, make your predictions now. Prove your football prowess!


Cincinnati upsets Houston
New Orleans crushes Detroit
Giants beat Altanta
Denver shocks Pittsburgh


On the debates, the over/under on the word "pimp mobile" is three.

Tennessee Jed said...

Rav - I am not set up to watch the debate and blog simultaneously, but I do love reading the comments afterwards. Great job! Interestingly, I have kind of gotten bored by the NFL. Maybe it was moving from Philly area to Knoxville, but I lost interest and seem to be more of a college guy.

AndrewPrice said...

Jed, By and large, the NFL has gotten a bit dull because they've turned it into too much of a business and too many players quit once they decide the game is lost.

But there are some things that are still interesting. I like watching Brees and the Saints play a lot and I'm really enjoying the Tebow games which have been surprisingly exciting.

BevfromNYC said...

Texans over the Bengals
Saints over the Lions
Giants over the Falcons
Steelers over the Broncos

It will be a bad day for animal mascots...Lions and tigers and...too bad the Bears didn't make.

Dear God,

Please make them stop debating. Make them sit down and talk one on one about what they will do specifically.

Your humble servant,
BevfronNYC
Amen.

tryanmax said...

I'm with TJ on being a college ball guy, though I blame it on my upbringing.

I'm interested to see how the remaining candidates "debate" now that the primaries are technically started. I don't have high hopes for any drastic changes, but I'm always up for surprises. I also can't get enough of those adorable sockpuppets.

LawHawkRFD said...

I'll be out at the old trading post getting vittles, but I hope to get back in time to see the debate and join the comments. It depends on how much the grandkids dawdle.

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, Let me second your letter to God. These debates need to stop. There's actually one in the morning, but I'm not getting up to watch it.

Ed said...

Not another debate?! Shouldn't this many debates be against the law?

CrisD said...

Hi there!
MMmmm. Another debate. Well, I'd like to watch Newt; he is simply beside himself and, therefore, fun to watch.

Problem: darling wants to watch Alien Resurrection and will not go along with another debate. Maybe I can get this computer to give me stream or audio...anyone know who is carying it? I will be getting off now and searching and I will let you know.

AndrewPrice said...

Cris, I was just looking for that. This should be the feed:

DEBATE LINK

CrisD said...

TX Andrew,
I saw that it was on Breitbart a few comments are on--four letter words for ABC news--haha! and that's from the ladies!

AndrewPrice said...

You're welcome Cris! ABC deserves quite a few four letter words! LOL!

This should be interesting tonight to see how nasty it gets.

T-Rav said...

Just so everyone knows, the over/under on Diane Sawyer's blood alcohol level for this evening is 0.12. You may place your bets now.

I'm going with the Giants and the Saints, and could really care less about the others.

AndrewPrice said...

I'd take the over.

T-Rav said...

Yeah, so would I. However, I should note that no bets will be taken on the chances of Newt spontaneously combusting while arguing with Romney. I'm not sure you could get anyone to bet against that.

CrisD said...

We are watching Saints and Lions in the commercials.

I am going to link to the debate and grab an adult beverage as I don't want Diane drinking alone. That's just the kind of gal I am! ;)

AndrewPrice said...

Cris, I'm watching the football game too and I plan to just fake my debate comments....

"Yes, that candidate sure said something interesting."


On Diane, I'm sure she appreciates that! :)


T-Rav, Vegas say 1.2 million to 1 in favor of combustion.

BevfromNYC said...

So, is Michelle "I'm a tax attorney with a thousand children" Bachmann going to participate or is she really out?

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, How funny would it be if she tried to crash the debate.

CrisD said...

Just to clarify, Andrew-
Alien Ressurection will be on, commercials go to the Saints/Lions and the computer will be on my lap streaming and me trying to comment! My kids would be shocked to see me multi task like this! Maybe I'll IM them on Facebook and let them know.

Regardless, I'm all in (a nice Merlot but darling counts refills!!)

AndrewPrice said...

Cris, That's the kind of thing that makes me think about how different our world is from the past. What a world! :)

BevfromNYC said...

Texans beat the Bengals 31-10

CrisD said...

Bev- are you "in" for this? I know without Michelle who will represent the old ladies who live in shoes-tax attorneys---but there might be some fireworks...

T-Rav said...

Bev, both of them are "meh" teams to me. Houston's obviously superior, I just don't care a lot about either of them.

BevfromNYC said...

T-Rav - if the Texans can get to the Superbowl, Cowboy owner Jerry Jones' head will explode. Many in Dallas would pay good money to see that.

BevfromNYC said...

CrisD - I will try, but these debates give me a stomach ache. I may fake it though just to add some estrogen to the room!

Diane Sawyer said...

Hey!! I found this bottle at the open bar a few minutes ago! It makes some tangy martinis!

T-Rav said...

For the record, this new "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" thing looks pretty good. I may have to go watch.

George Stephanopoulos said...

Diane! Give me that stuff! It's not martinis, it's formaldehyde!

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, When you say "new," I cringe. This is an old story.

T-Rav said...

Yeah, Jerry Jones can suck it, as far as I'm concerned. Although frankly, I don't really like the Cowboys in general. I think it's a reaction to their being over-hyped as "America's Team" or whatever. Still, I'd root for them in a matchup with the Patriots (hypothetically speaking).

Diane Sawyer said...

I don't care! I like them Mekshican drinks too! I'm not a prejiduc....prejedui....bad person like those evil Republicans! Party it up, I say! Woo hoo! (thump)

tryanmax said...

Just showing up. Looks like the fun already started.

tryanmax said...

BTW, it is my little girl's 4th birthday!

T-Rav said...

How is this my voice? They've been ignoring my voice, as far as I can tell. Hello? Hello???

T-Rav said...

Happy birthday, tryanmax's daughter!

tryanmax said...

Preemptive scolding. Nice.

T-Rav said...

Chances of anyone following the rules, including the moderators themselves: at or near zero.

tryanmax said...

Good, taking on 0bama out the gate. Let's hope the whole debate keeps this tone.

ABC News said...

Let us rephrase: Obama likes it when America is prosperous, why don't you?

tryanmax said...

Aren't CEOs and managers just titles that we give to leaders?

tryanmax said...

LOLZ @ ABC News

Andrew's Television Set said...

Get Rick off the screen. Seriously, he's going to shoot me if he stays on the screen any longer. Help me.

AndrewPrice said...

"Yes, that candidate sure said something interesting."

T-Rav said...

Um, I'm pretty sure Romney has neither been excluded from the Beltway nor been a struggling entrepreneur.

AndrewPrice said...

Don't worry, my television is showing the Saints embarrassing themselves, not Ricky S.

T-Rav said...

"Bain Capital": Drink!

tryanmax said...

What is this film they are talking about? (Sorry, trying to deal with b-day aftermath.)

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, It would be worse. It could have been named "Robbing From The Poor, Inc." I think Gingrich said that today.

T-Rav said...

To anyone who chose to watch football rather than this debate: You did the right thing.

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, It's a film staring Rick Santorum....

he was young...

he needed the money...

AndrewPrice said...

Oh, it also starred "a fireman."

T-Rav said...

Is it just me, or does Huntsman's voice sound like a recording?

T-Rav said...

Andrew, I don't understand what you're getting at.

Technical Difficulties said...

We do, in fact, double as lie detectors.

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax asked about some film they were talking about, and I figured they were talking about the film staring Ricky and the fireman. ;)

It was a Naked Gun reference.

"I just saw some interesting photos..."
"I was young, I needed the money."

T-Rav said...

It's a choice between Ron Paul and chest-thumping Lions players. I want whatever Diane's got in her coffee cup.

T-Rav said...

Much like Paul has done, in fact.

tryanmax said...

Andrew, LOL! (I'm gonna be in and out 2nite)

Rick Santorum said...

It's so nice to finally be allowed to finish.

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, She gets special ABC issued alcohol.

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, uh... that sounds like a set up for a dirty joke. LOL!

Rick Santorum said...

In fact, it's nice to be asked a question.

T-Rav said...

Perry/Huntsman 2012!

AndrewPrice said...

Perry is whining about insiders and corruption? WTF?

tryanmax said...

Andrew, and one that wouldn't be out of place in a Naked Gun movie.

A Gutter said...

Get your mind out of me, Andrew.

AndrewPrice said...

Somebody please strangle Perry now.

T-Rav said...

Andrew, this movie of yours--did Rick Perry have a supporting role, by chance?

AndrewPrice said...

Oh, is that like when you claim you never take stimulus money from Washington after taking $6 billion?

Up yours Perry.

tryanmax said...

I bet he played the fireman.

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, I would guess he was the star.

Ron Paul said...

Those darn kids stole my gold, dagnabbit!

tryanmax said...

The field has not seemed more homogenous than it does tonight.

T-Rav said...

Maybe one of the producers shot Diane up with Valium before this debate. Whatever works, I guess.

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, They do look a bit like clones.

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, Or horse tranquilizers.

T-Rav said...

Jon Huntsman: For those who think Mitt Romney is a right-wing zealot.

tryanmax said...

At least Mitt tries bringing it back to 0bama, but all the sniping still happened.

AndrewPrice said...

"this is a failed presidency"... yep

tryanmax said...

Oh, that reminds me, who has the worst tie? I'll render my verdict after I get a look at them all.

Howard Payne said...

You have a bottle of stimulants. You can give the stimulants to these candidates on the stage or to the Saints offense, but not both. What do you do, Jack? What do you do?

tryanmax said...

It might be McElveen. Yikes!

T-Rav said...

Did you know Texas was an independent nation with its own military policy? Because I didn't.

tryanmax said...

Hey Andrew, shaky cam!

AndrewPrice said...

Rick Perry -- the reduction of the military budget is the biggest crisis America face.

Uh, no.

AndrewPrice said...

Newt... "I'm a smarmy ass."

AndrewPrice said...

PANDER ALERT PANDER ALERT

This has been a Pander Alert.

T-Rav said...

Let's be clear on this: Paul accused Gingrich of sending kids off to war to be killed. Newt was not in a position to do that. Paul was when he voted yes on the AUMF for Afghanistan.

Newt: said...

I'm going to hire doctors to follow veterans in New Hampshire around and take care of them.

T-Rav said...

But that won't stop him from repeating the charge, of course.

tryanmax said...

Self righteous jerk.

tryanmax said...

Girls, girls! You're both pretty. Now settle down.

T-Rav said...

Did anyone notice that a) Paul randomly attacked Santorum in the course of replying to Newt, and b) the camera operator swung to Perry instead? Is everyone here drunk?

AndrewPrice said...

Paul thinks enforcing drug laws is racist? Uh, no.

There are many reasons for everything you are saying Paul.... asshole.

T-Rav said...

Oh my Lord, here we go onto Wonka's boat ride again.

AndrewPrice said...

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!


Minorities don't serve in higher numbers either you POS.

CrisD said...

Now that newt and Paul have shot each other --Stephonopolis will deliver the blow to Paul! Thanks ABC, we can count on you...

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, That was a weak film, though I liked the idea itself.

T-Rav said...

Please God, make it stop. Make it end.

AndrewPrice said...

Detroit 14
New Orleans 10

Halftime

T-Rav said...

Which film is that?

Rosetta Stone said...

Learn Martian today!

T-Rav said...

FYI, this new TV version of "The Firm" looks pretty lame, in my opinion.

AndrewPrice said...

Megamind.... with Will Ferrel and Tina Fey (if I'd known, I wouldn't have bothered).

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, The Firm looks intensely lame.

tryanmax said...

Surprise, surprise. Ron Paul believes in liberal race myths.

T-Rav said...

Debate so far: In a stunning deviation, Ron Paul has decided to stop going crazy during the last 20 minutes and start going crazy during the first hour instead. Meanwhile, every other candidate puts one in mind of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers."

Tennessee Jed said...

jumping on during the commercial. Romney outclassed Santorum early on. The others want to get rid of Paul. Like always, he mixes some good pointw with his intrinsic lunatic tendencies. Perry doesn't do it for me, and somebody likened Huntsman to an actor playing a Star Trek Federation senior diplomat.

Reminded that no Newt is good Newt.

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, Good summation from what I've seen.

AndrewPrice said...

Jed, I'm with you 100%.

AndrewPrice said...

Do you believe the states have a right to ban contraception?

What kind of idiot question is that? Is this 1961?

AndrewPrice said...

Griswald v. Connecticut. Supreme Court says no.

T-Rav said...

Fun fact: St. Anselm was an 11th-century Archbishop of Canterbury, exiled by King William II for his opposition to royal overbearance, and generally credited with starting the medieval movement known as scholasticism. His most famous contribution was the formation of the "ontological argument," using logical proofs to make a case for the existence of God. Given all that, does having this farce of a debate at the college named for him constitute sacrilege, or not? Discuss!

AndrewPrice said...

Romney actually just gave a solid constitutional answer to an idiotic question.

1961 said...

Why are you bringing me into this?

T-Rav said...

And now...amateur hour begins.

tryanmax said...

I agree with Santorum.

tryanmax said...

that is, "What's the question?"

AndrewPrice said...

Santorum dances...

Diane Sawyer said...

Maybe we could talk about things now.

tryanmax said...

Hmm, whaddya know. The candidate that is supposedly the constitutional expert gives the weakest constitutional answer.

The Media said...

OMG! Republicans want to oppress pregnant mothers! Again!

tryanmax said...

That was almost a 'when did you stop beating your wife' question. pthzzz!

tryanmax said...

Diane Sawyer: hee hee, moving on from that silly constitution...

T-Rav said...

Dear Phil: Given the trashed economy, the collapsing EU, and the fact that half the Middle East is on fire right now or is about to be, why is this the most important issue to you?

AndrewPrice said...

Think any of them will give a straight answer to any of these questions?

T-Rav said...

Wait, what?

AndrewPrice said...

Santorum -- "this isn't a federal issue, this is a state issue."

That is called a lie. Santorum has NEVER believe that.

T-Rav said...

I'm switching over to the game. Let me know when the hosts stop pretending that gay people constitute a family.

tryanmax said...

Andrew, Uncle Sam's accusatory finger in you avatar accompanied your last comment perfectly.

Media said...

Sir, are you opposed to same sex, same disability, same race but multi-religion, interspecies dinners?

T-Rav said...

Good Lord, what is going on with New Orleans? Talk about your amateur hour.

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, That does work nicely doesn't it?!

fyi, the game is back on.

tryanmax said...

Do you get to do that in court?

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, They've been shockingly bad at points, like when they've gotten near the end zone. I don't know what's going on?

AndrewPrice said...

with the other finger

AndrewPrice said...

TOUCHDOWN!!!!!!!!

T-Rav said...

Oh, they just took the lead. Never mind.

AndrewPrice said...

Are they still worried about whether gays will find love?

AndrewPrice said...

yep

I wonder how the Aliens are doing?

T-Rav said...

tryanmax, Andrew was in fact pointing at the TV while typing that comment about Santorum. But not with his index finger.

AndrewPrice said...

Santorum is a prick.

Excuse my language.

T-Rav said...

The only answer to this is "No, I will not hand the election to Barack Obama by running third-party." Anything else and you should be read out of the party.

AndrewPrice said...

Perry goes back to gays. Ug.

Rick Perry said...

I'd like to open this can of worms back up, if you don't mind.

Rick Perry said...

The Teletubbies are sleeping under my bed.

T-Rav said...

I'm getting distracted by the shine off of Huntsman's hair.

AndrewPrice said...

His hair is strange. It has a ridge.

T-Rav said...

Jeez, this answer by Romney is the most solid of any of them. Someone help me, I think I'm losing my mind.

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, Romney is the only one on stage who strikes me as President tonight. The other are clowns and fools.

tryanmax said...

Romney is a windsock, but the wind is blowing conservative.

Ron Paul! said...

Iran is not trying to get nuclear weapons! And even if they are, they're just trying to defend themselves against Israel! Blame the Zionists! Buy Gold!!!

AndrewPrice said...

And then there's Perry, who seems to be 10 minutes behind the other candidates.

AndrewPrice said...

Yeah, you don't want weak horse. You need strong horse, it has better street value.

Detente said...

Trust me, that whole "containment" thing didn't work out well back in the '70s.

Firehouse Rick said...

I AM A KILLER... GRRRR. I WILL WIN OUR WARS BY CONTINUING WHAT OBAMA IS DOING BUT CALLING IT SOMETHING ELSE!

Rick Perry said...

Can we go back to gay marriage?

AndrewPrice said...

So now Bush III wants to re-invade Iraq. Nice.

tryanmax said...

See, I love this 0bama bashing, but there should be more of it.

T-Rav said...

I don't know whether it would be feasible to send troops back into Iraq, but Iranian influence is going to be a very big problem very quickly.

tryanmax said...

And Newt throws down the Reagan card. Yawn.

CrisD said...

Ripley just kissed the alien goodbye. She and Winona triumph!

Newt says so many right things.

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, It's not. Under the treaties we struck, they have the right to say if they want us there and they don't.

This is knee-jerking-off.

T-Rav said...

How can such an important topic come across as so tedious?

AndrewPrice said...

CrisD, The movie's over already? That was fast!

tryanmax said...

I thought his crazy was RonPaul's Achilles heel.

T-Rav said...

So you admit you're the one who was putting our kids in harm's way?

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, Because you've got idiots arguing about it and it's clear they have no idea what they are talking about. That's what makes it tedious. It's like listening to teenagers tell you what's wrong with the world.

T-Rav said...

America: Building bridges, one fisherman at a time!

tryanmax said...

Whoa! For a moment I thought I was watching Idiocracy. Then I snapped out of it and became very sad.

Members of the Green Revolution said...

Yeah, we're still smarting over that whole thing. Thanks a ton, Obama.

Republic of Georgia said...

You're telling us!

T-Rav said...

Aaaannndd cue dramatic music.

T-Rav said...

Holy crap, J. Edgar is still in theaters?!

tryanmax said...

Worst tie contest winner: Ron Paul for his 1970s old-man wide tie.

Runner up: John McElveen for capturing the spirit if not the garishness of Paul's tie.

Honorable mentions: Newt and Santorum for their camera un-friendly tight-pattern selections. We may be in the era of HD, but some of the old rules still apply.

AndrewPrice said...

near TOUCHDOWN

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, on my TV, they all look like they're wearing yellow shirts tonight.

AndrewPrice said...

TOUCHDOWN!!!!!

T-Rav said...

Touchdown Saints!

tryanmax said...

Andrew, LOLZ

AndrewPrice said...

Weird. I just saw spam get posted and then pulled away by the spam filter.

I knew that sometimes it takes time, but this was the first time I've seen that.

T-Rav said...

I think CrisD is now engrossed in Alien 3. Much more Alien-y than Alien.

CrisD said...

The lib commenters on ABC commercials are disappointed that they seemed to have waved the white flag for Romney. I think they wanted a Romney -Newt battle and all we got was the T-shirt "Ron Paul vs. Santorum" and Ron Paul vs.Gingrich". I hope they have no sound bites tomorrow. May they choke on it.

T-Rav said...

What's George doing to unwind? Uh....do we really want to know that?

tryanmax said...

Was that the thing about Ursula? I think I saw the same thing.

AndrewPrice said...

That's what we need for the debates! A soundtrack!

Think "Electric Avenue" by Eddie Grant!

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, I'm DVRing Alien 3. :)

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, Yes -- Ursula, that's what it was -- spam. It showed up here and then vanished a second later. It's not even in the spam filter, it's just gone.

AndrewPrice said...

I give Romney a lot of points for explaining that really well about why America rocks!

T-Rav said...

I suggest some "Massive Attack" for the soundtrack. Makes you feel like you're caught up in something really important. Except then it ends, and reality kicks in, but oh well.

T-Rav said...

Andrew, I tricked it into saying its name backwards. That's the only way to send it back to the fifth dimension where it belongs.

CrisD said...

T-Rav-
I think I would watch aliens debate right about now.

T-Rav said...

Say it with me. Flat tax, flat tax, flat tax....

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, They should all have their own soundtracks.

Ricky Santorum could use AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."

Ricky Perry could use "wasted away again in Margaritaville."

Ron Paul could use Pink Floyd's "Brain Damage."

Rick Perry said...

Save the country! Bring manufacturing back!

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, Whose name?

tryanmax said...

I'd give Paul clown music.

AndrewPrice said...

Touchdown Detroit!

This is a heck of a game.

AndrewPrice said...

Insane Clown Posse?
