How To Have Fun At Tonite’s Republican Debate

Tonite the Republican candidates will gather in Simi Valley at the Ronald Reagan Library to participate in the first Republican debate. There will be ten candidates on stage and it will be moderated by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. It will be broadcast live on MSNBC, and co-hosted by where you can also watch it live. Nancy Reagan will be front and center at the debate and I am sure Ronald Reagan will be mentioned several times. This is where the fun comes in. You can make it a drinking debate. Anytime Ronald Reagan is mentioned, drink up. It seems that Ronald Reagan is what all these guys want to be like. Just skip right past the Bush’s, and go back 25 years ago to the Reagan revolution. Those were much different times. The country had just lived through Jimmy Carter, and the Iranian hostage crises. Being a popular Republican was not that hard. Today they are campaigning behind an unpopular President and the country stuck in an unpopular war. The tables are turned. It is time the Republicans came out with a new candidate, not some recycled ghost from the past that none of these guys can hold a candle to. With a little over 8 minutes time allowed for each candidate this debate might not offer much more. Hopefully a backbencher candidate like Ron Paul will stir things up enough to open the Republican’s eyes, or 08 will be a “slam dunk” for the Democrats, just like it was for the Republicans in 80.
