Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! Today there are two races for spectators to watch, a demolition derby run by the GOP in South Carolina and a drag car race between two hot rodding Dems in Nevada.
South Carolina, proud of its reputation for having the lowest and most degrading style of politics, is hosting the next GOP debate that will require the candidates to speak only in nasty limericks.
Will a bigoted reality show entertainer and billionaire come in first in a Presidential primary? Will a 74 year old Democratic Socialist top the wife of a President, a former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State? The New Hampshire primary is under way, join the conversation here throughout the day and night!
It's desperation time for most GOP candidates and the debate tonight should have fireworks! The debate is on ABC and starts in moments at 5:00pm PST!

Tonight's Republican debate begins at 6:00pm PST. As usual, we're hosting a live chat to accompany the debate (the best prescription for not punching your tv) and you're invited to join us then!
From Hillary Clinton's version of The Christmas Song: "Trump's nuts roasting on an open fire. Bernie's nipping at your heels. Wall Street's bankrolls being snagged by your PAC, And you dressed up like Lib-er-als."
Join us tonight for a live chat during the debate, the only enjoyable way to watch Republicans!
Republican candidates will once again gather on the debate stage to complain about being asked to debate! Or something like that! You're invited to join us here at PlanetPOV for a live chat during tonight's debates!
Some folks have proposed that you can tell a lot about candidates by which tv shows are their favorites. So with that in mind, consider the names of the tv shows that each of them have listed as their favorites.

The Far Bloodier Coup That Was Intended

Imagine where we could have been right now. A hostage siege still underway in the Capitol. Trump praising them as patriots while emptily claiming to oppose violence. The Vice President of the US and/or Democratic congresspeople tied up and possibly much worse.
