So we usually like to keep it about sports at BBS, mixed in with some pop culture now and then. However, this election is pure blogger gold. Communists, murderers, people comparing candidates to Hitler, the possible Zodiac killer, its just too good to pass up.
To be completely honest, I haven't really been watching the Democratic Debates. Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are WAY too nice to each other for me to tune in for hours. However, these republicans HATE each other. Trump is making fun of Rubio for being short, and Rubio is saying that Trump has a tiny pecker.
Does it get much better than that?
So in preparation for tonight's debate in Detroit, Michigan, here is a gameplan for each candidate, as if they care what I have to say.
Donald Trump: Stay the coarse. AND DON'T KILL ANYBODY
The Donald has been dominating in the polls, and looks to be the clear-cut frontrunner to win the republican nomination. After winning 7 states on Super Tuesday, there is a chance that Trump could win Florida in a little less than two weeks and force Rubio to bow out. If Trump can hold his own against the politicians and not say something disastrous (or kill someone mid-debate), then he should be good to go.
If Trump really wants to make an impact tonight, he has to tear apart Mitt Romney, as well. Surprisingly, people have agreed with Trump's criticism of Romney and how he ran his last campaign. If Trump can show that he isn't Romney and has a legitimate shot of winning in the general election, this thing may be OVER.
Ted Cruz: Be less creepy and hateable (if that is a word).
I don't really know that much about Cruz, but he must be doing something right if he was able to win his own state of Texas, which has the biggest republican population in the country. According to pundits, Cruz is the most conservative candidate still in the race, and could be a relatively decent president. My only issue with Teddy is that he may be the creepiest looking dude in the world. I don't know what it is, but I just want to punch him in the face. Again, seems like a great guy, and could very well become the nominee, but something has to change for Cruz. On a serious note, if he wants to separate himself from Rubio, he needs to go balls-to-the-wall and attack him hard tonight. Stop focusing on Trump, and worry about getting Rubio out of the race.
Marco Rubio: Stop sweating.
I thought I liked Marco Rubio at the beginning of this mess, but since he has started to act more like Trump, I have learned to hate the little guy. It just doesn't fit him well. Trump is this New York billionaire, while Rubio looks like he's fresh out of diapers. In a couple years Rubio may be able to run for office and win against a democratic nominee like Elizabeth Warren (All hail, the chief), but he is just too young and inexperienced at this point. Republicans are afraid that Rubio could turn into their version of President Obama, as he is a young first-time senator.
If Cruz and Trump gang up on Rubio, don't be surprised if Rubio looks like he just took a dip in the pool. This dude sweats like its his job. I wonder if they can do some sort of slip-and-slide thing after the debate, courtesy of Marco?
John Kasich: Say more than 5 words and don't mention your dad was a mailman.
I kind of feel bad for Kasich at this point. I think he is a good guy and has some pretty good values, but this year it is a tough field. If you're not a ruthless SOB, don't expect to hang around long. Ask Jeb!.
Side note, I need Kasich to stop talking about his dad being a mailman. Dude, no one cares. I want to hear what you think about terrorists, guns and other fun election stuff. Not that your dad's favorite day of the week is Sunday.
