1.) After watching the 1 and 1/2 hour Loser Debate and the 3 hour main event, the biggest takeaway is that this debate was a slog compared to the last one. It made no sense to have four candidates in the Loser Debate and 11 on the main stage.
2.) IMO, ¡Jeb! was by far the biggest loser of the evening. Trump alphaed him several times. He demanded Trump apologize to his wife. Trump’s response: no.
3.) Trump looked gassed or “low energy” this time around, but so did everyone watching at home after THREE HOURS.
4.) Ben Carson, the real cure for insomnia, practically went to sleep on stage. He is playing the magic negro who will heal America’s racial divide. That was Obama’s act in 2008.
5.) Rick Santorum shined in the Loser Debate and was the only other candidate who caught my eye.
6.) Ted Cruz had a good answer on judges, but I have never been able to get past his evangelical demeanor which always reminds me of the character Steve Newlin from HBO’s True Blood.
7.) Once again, the media consensus is that Fiorina and Rubio won the debate because both gave the most polished answers. Sitting at home, I didn’t care about their polished answers though because both are for amnesty which is why I would never consider voting for them.
8.) Trump’s bluster and lack of substance is beginning to get on my nerves, but not enough at this point to change my view of the race.
9.) There was a subdebate about who could cuck the hardest for Israel to impress Sheldon Adelson who was reportedly in the audience. Ann Coulter’s Twitter feed was the highlight of the evening.
10.) Trump didn’t make any fatal mistakes. He didn’t help or hurt himself last night … just bored us trying to play nice.
11.) I thought Cuckabee had a great moment on religious liberty.
12.) Rand Paul tried to channel his father, but it is too late now. Can’t go back, Rand.
13.) After an initial outburst against Trump, Scott Walker disappeared.
