The difference Rodeo, is that when Sarah Palin has a show she looks like an idiot and no one wants to watch.

 

Hillarys story features a very intelligent, hard working feminist who put up with a philandering husband while going from First Lady to Secretary of State - she will have a show where she looks smart and no one wants to watch.

 

I read some op ed of Fox today, that Prebius guy is a freaking crybaby. The reason this is being done is simple: last go round all the primary debates made the RNC look like the crazies that they are. This is a half assed attempt to control that message and not scare as many people this time.

 

Also it's funny that there's a "punch Hillary" game out there and the RNC isn't minding all that media.

It'd be funny if they ran it anyway, then in 2016, made a mockumentary about the republicans' boycott.

Just further ostracizes them from mainstream America.

I think this is just a terrible idea. Makes Republicans look petty and small. Several news organizations including Fox, MSNBC, and CNN had great and inspiring documentaries about John McCain incredible story.

They didn't seem to give a sh1t about that.

 

Yeah i had the pleasure of watching the yahoo make the press statement for boycotting and I'm just wondering wtf is the GOP doing these days.

 

I hate the fact that we have two teams in politics. But one of them is losing clearly.

If Hillary is as bad as they say she is then why wouldn't they want a documentary?

 

I remember when Oliver Stone was making W and they all figured it would be a terrible hit piece from liberal Hollywood and instead it was kind of a whitewash.

The Repubtards continue to find new and unusual ways to make themselves out as a bunch of whiny, spoiled, entitled crybabies who just can't seem to get their way. The weekly temper tantrums (how many votes have they taken to repeal Romneycare?) and obstructionism are getting old and tired.

how far have we sunk as a country? we have taken the lesser of two evils to extreme lows.

 

but we collectively stay duped and keep voting in goofballs over and over again and then bitch nothing gets better for ourselves or those less fortunate.

You should run for office and quit your bitch'n. 

 

Base on what you have posted about your above average intellect, it should not take much effort for you to run circles around the "extreme lows" in political choices currently offered to the voters.

 

I am not even kidding about this.

From my experiences republicans are the ones with a victim mentality. They are always the ones I hear bitchin about EVERYTHING and how unfair it is.

They do have a somewhat legitimate point, especially if its a how great thou art piece about Mrs Clinton.   
 

That being said, this is mainly an attention getter when not much is happening, and its highly unlikely that any serious candidate will boycott the debates.
