    My Chinese food is here! Also some of these wives are wearing pink.

  2. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    They’re watching the Yankees and the Tigers debate in the bar where I am tonight.

  3. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 8:06 pm

    My future is bright. Time to go back to being a college student.

  4. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    Shelia, keep us posted. To all our bright futures!

  5. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    Speaking of the future, I’ve been thinking about taking out a loan and going back to school. The best thing is — I’ll be dead before it’s paid off! So that’s something.

  6. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    Let’s all go back to school!

  7. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:14 pm

    Good idea.

  8. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    Stupid migratory birds

  9. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    If we could just rape our country more than other countries, we’ll be in the clear!

  10. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 8:18 pm

    I’m taking a smoke break since I’m already irritated.

  11. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    Clean coal will ensure we all have awesome jobs when we’re out of school.

  12. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    With less birds to worry about.

  13. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    Mostly, I’m scared of those Undecided Voters. Who are these people?

  14. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    They are reviewing the alternates like The Green Party.

  15. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    Yay, all my capital gains tax will go away! Because that’s so middle class.

  16. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    There are those people. And then there are the ones who get all warm and moist (or big and hard) when they hear the words “small business.”

  17. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    Some undecided people are democrats who are disappointed in Obama and want to teach him a lesson.

  18. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 8:31 pm

    Are the Yankees Dead? That’s what we care about.

  19. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    I think we’re all dead soon.

  20. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:35 pm

    Wait! Are those balls?

  21. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 8:35 pm

    Yeah, well, that’s why I want to go back to school. Have fun fucking around in school, get my degree, and die!

  22. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 8:35 pm

    School first, death second. I need a college degree. According to my father, the POTUS is kicking ass tonight.

  23. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    Balls? Testes?

  24. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    Cajones.

  25. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:41 pm

    Binders full of women!

  26. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Best to keep them bound in binders.

  27. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    I had a binder full of women once.

  28. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Also: vagina.

  29. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 8:52 pm

    Was it covered in stickers?

  30. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    I’m an unscientific Pole.

  31. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    It was sticky, that’s for sure.

  32. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 8:55 pm

    Obviously Michael Jones doesn’t know where to find deals. Scour the internet.

  33. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    I bet there’s a good deal to be had on binders.

  34. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 9:02 pm

    Come to the U S of A, and serve in our military! Or donate some organs. We welcome you.

  35. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Did our president just say “gang bangers”?

  36. rick neece on October 16th, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    Hour in, I’m as tired as they look. They’re boring the shit out of each other. Candy is the only spice and she’s not driving the bus nearly well enough. I wont’er to crack some heads.

  37. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    I hear #bindersfullofwomen is trending.

  38. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    I’ve been watching the ball game in the bar and just now tuned into the Debate on the Radio.

  39. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Yeah, #bindersfullofwomen is a thing.

  40. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 9:14 pm

    Hi Rick! Im enjoying Candy as a moderator tonight. Everyone else?

  41. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    It’s the top of the 6th. Tigers: 2. Yankees: 0.

  42. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    Go Mavs!

  43. rick neece on October 16th, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Candy’s awesome. She’s too polite. So’s Obama.

    Slap the mofo down!

  44. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    Wow. Before you have babies, you ought to think about getting married to someone?!?!

  45. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    On the gun question!?

  46. rick neece on October 16th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    Once when the camera had Rmoney [sic] in the background, I thought he looked like somebody. Took me a while…aw, I lost it. Crowley? Nah, nevermind.

  47. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 9:28 pm

    Okay, I’m reminded now of the level of our civic discussion. I’m going back to the ball game.

  48. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Evil China and evil single mothers.

  49. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    Just drop the minimum wage.

  50. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    Make the US attractive to entrepreneurs. I’ve got a binder full of women, and pussy’s half off for the next ten minutes.

  51. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    Mitt took care of all his kids

  52. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    Oh, I’m sick. “Using specific examples . . . debunk this misperception . . . . ” This is not adult discourse. It’s an extended assignment for adolescents, a mock debate for Boys State.

  53. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    By hiring nannies from the binder full of women.

  54. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    How am I feeling? Sick at the sorry level of what passes for public debate. Not that it was any higher in any mythical olden days.

  55. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Somehow the two minutes thing just sets them up for a string of sound bites, avoiding the specifics.

  56. Sheila Ryan on October 16th, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    Top of the seventh. Tigers still in the lead.

  57. Casey Cichowicz on October 16th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    Grrr

  58. Erica Braverman on October 16th, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    I live in a house with two Michiganders, so that’s good news.

  59. Kathy Hilen-Smith on October 16th, 2012 at 10:36 pm

    Lost my voice yelling at the TeeVee again.

  60. SC on October 17th, 2012 at 12:37 am

    . . . an extended assignment for adolescents, a mock debate for Boys State . . .

    I used to think that, and I guess it’s probably accurate for some youth debates, but after watching a middle school model UN a few years ago, I realized, no, our “adult” debates suck harder than your average prep school debate team. Only lame middle school debate teams are as awful as our presidential debates.

    Pretty good middle school debate teams highlight their differences and argue with more facts, more verve, and more logic. Middle school debate teams do not score points for, say, randomly introducing their siblings/parents/relatives or claiming apriori knowledge of, oh, the future.

    Here’s a random bit from the tonight’s debate: “There were hunting opportunities, for instance, that haven’t previously been available and so forth, so it was a mutually agreed- upon piece of legislation. That’s what we need more of, Candy. What we have right now in Washington is a place that’s gridlocked.” That’s the kind of thing you might hear from a completely unprepared middle school team that isn’t going to make it out of the first round of a tri-school debate competition.

    I wish I liked baseball…

  62. Sheila Ryan on October 17th, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    Well, you really can’t even call it debating, what the candidates have been doing.

    And I say that realizing that last night’s format was not that of a formal debate at Oxford.

    Still, the pure, druggy randomness of it all reminding me of conversations friends and I had during the Acid Era.
