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!
To win a GOP debate, you don't present a policy on the issues, you don't argue principles, you don't literally win a debate over any particular topic, you simply need to show that you are the best at hatin'.

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.
