  • The Junior Prom

    10/06/2016 5:11:04 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 22 replies ^ | October 6, 2016 | Derek Hunter
    It’s over. The vice presidential debate has ended. But you wouldn’t know it because Sen. Tim Kaine is still talking over everyone. Yes, it’s the “junior prom,” but it does matter. One of these two men will be a heartbeat from the presidency come January, whether you like it or not. Given Hillary Clinton’s mysterious health issues, that's nothing to sniff at on the Democratic side. One of these men – Pence – will have the opportunity to advise a president on such important issues as the economy and national security. The other probably will be outside the room pressing...
  • Moderation: Pence managed to win a three-person debate, eh?

    If you missed last night’s debate, the RNC has a 271-second distillation of it. For most viewers, the biggest impression of the event came from Tim Kaine’s constant interruptions and interjections. The RNC counted 72 of them, but it felt like a lot more when watching the debate live. Is this the fault of the moderator, CBS News correspondent Elaine Quijano? Perhaps not, but that doesn’t mean she’s off the hook either. Let me put it this (VIDEO-AT-LINK) … oh, sorry, the video interrupted me. At any rate, short of being able to yank Kaine’s microphone off his lapel, she...
  • Shut Up, Bro: Tim Kaine Interrupted Mike Pence Over 70 Times

    10/05/2016 4:04:30 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 33 replies ^ | October 5, 2016 | Matt Vespa
    Well, if there was one thing that was obvious, besides Gov. Mike Pence winning the vice presidential debate, it was that Sen. Tim Kaine had an appalling inability to shut the hell up. Pence won handily over Kaine, who often waffled as he tried to attack Trump—and place pressure on Pence to defend his running mate’s past remarks. Pence didn’t take the bait. Yet, it seemed as if every time Pence offered a contrary opinion, or his take on policy, Kaine interrupted him. It was pervasive. Then again, when you're defending Clinton, one might have to interrupt often in the...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: MSNBC today floating a rumor. I don't know if MSNBC created the rumor or if they heard the rumor and are repeating it, but here's the rumor that PMSNBC was tossing around this morning. It is that Donald Trump is mad at Mike Pence for his debate performance because he didn't defend Trump nearly well enough, but he did good enough that it puts pressure on Trump to do better on Sunday night, and Trump doesn't like being outshined this way. The vice presidential candidate's not supposed to look better than the top of the ticket. Trump...

    RUSH: So how many of you watched the Donald Trump debate last night on taxes and nicknames for women? How many of you saw that debate? Yeah. I have to tell you, folks, I nearly turned it off I can't tell you how many times. I was embarrassed by the whole thing. ... The critics of Donald Trump say that he's a buffoon and he's unserious and all this. Tim Kaine last night was an embarrassment, just an abomination, and the moderator was an embarrassment last night. So much became clear, so much became obvious. One of the things, I'll...

    The Conservative Treehouse ^ | September 5, 2016 | Sundance
    A reminder. Senator Tim Kaine has only been together with his running mate Hillary Clinton one time since the DNC convention. They appeared together in Ohio on Labor Day (Sept 5th), that is the one and only time since the end of July. That’s the reality backdrop for Kaines’ absolute failure to launch during the Vice-Presidential debate last night. And… if there’s one thing as certain as the sun rise in the east tomorrow, it’s the truism that when anything impedes Hillary Clinton’s mission to achieve the presidency they are immediately rebuked. Senator Tim Kaine better get a food taster...

    Have been watching the Vice President Debate. Gov. Mike Pence was grace under fire. Sen. Tim Kaine was sure acting snarky. The debate moderator was either helping Sen. Kaine or simply lost control. It got so bad I had to turn it off. At least it will show folks how calm Gov. Pence even when the questions were focused on Mr. Donald J. Trump.
  • The Onion: What a creep! (with AP & Getty photos )

    OK, I've never really seen or heard this guy up closely up until tonight. Not only did he appear to be very conniving, but creepy as well. Then, I go onto the Drudge page and see this picture. My head snapped. This guy is in Howard Dean territory and look like he belongs in a halfway house. This is what's supposed to pass as a co-leader? Ronald Reagan must be rolling in his grave.

    WND ^ | 8 hours ago
    Trump's running mate duels with Hillary's 'gender-neutral' VP pick Tim Kaine did his best to unnerve Mike Pence during Tuesday’s vice presidential debate by constantly interrupting and talking over the Indiana governor. But the cool and collected Pence, a former radio host, effortlessly batted away Kaine’s attempts to hijack the debate. The Republican National Committee and the poll-analysis website FiveThirtyEight determined that Kaine interrupted Pence over 70 times, compared to just over 40 interruptions for Pence. During his opening statement at the debate, Kaine said his primary role will be to act as Hillary Clinton’s “right-hand person.” Moderator Elaine Quijano...
  • After Tim Kaine Flops In Vice Presidential Debate, New Doubts About Hillary

    10/05/2016 3:51:52 AM PDT · by Helicondelta · 163 replies ^ | 4 Oct 2016
    Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) lost badly to Indiana Gov. Mike Pence in Tuesday night’s vice presidential debate — despite having home field advantage in Farmville, Virginia — raising new doubts about Hillary Clinton. Those doubts are twofold: first, about her decision to choose so weak a candidate, who seemed unable to answer basic policy questions; and second, about Clinton’s health, since if her medical troubles are as bad as feared, Kaine may be taking over at some point if she is elected. Kaine could not stop interrupting Pence, at times sounding high-pitched and shrill, at times whining and defensive. Pence...

    Eric Trump OWNS CNN Panel After VP Debate

    10/05/2016 4:09:47 AM PDT · by Biggirl · 61 replies ^ | October 5, 2016 | Daniel Greenfield
    Tim Kaine took out time from his busy schedule of grimacing at cameras and mispronouncing Spanish to participate in a V.P. debate and explain why Hillary's Russia reset failed. "What went wrong with the Russian reset? Vladimir Putin," said Kaine. What went wrong with Munich? Adolf Hitler. Of course Putin is a known quality. Saying that your attempt to make a deal with a guy your candidate has compared to Hitler went wrong because he's a bad guy fails to address the question of why you decided to hit the reset button in the first place. Hillary Clinton insists that...
  • Voted best line of the VP debate: ‘You whipped out that Mexican thing again!’

    bizpacreview ^ | Carmine Sabia
    Hillary Clinton’s running mate Sen. Tim Kaine was a broken record, continuously referencing Donald Trump’s comments on illegal aliens from Mexico and trying to make it sound like he had disparaged all Mexicans. But Indiana Gov. Mike Pence inadvertently had the line of the night when he mocked how often Kaine went to that well. “Senator you whipped out that Mexican thing again,” Pence said in retort to one of Kaine’s many references to the topic.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    How well did things go for Mike Pence and the Trump-Pence ticket tonight? Even Chris Matthews—no doubt to the horror of Rachel Maddow who was helping oversee the post-debate commentary on MSNBC—had to declare Pence the “winner.” Perhaps even worse for the denizens of MSNBC and its viewers, Matthews said Pence looked “strong” and like a “grown-up,” whereas Tim Kaine came across as “desperate.” Ouch!

  • If the VP Debate Was an Ice-cream Social: Vanilla v Vanilla

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/4/16 | Beverly Hallberg
    The most popular flavor of ice cream in America is vanilla. (Most surveys suggest it clocks in at 29 percent.) But I doubt many people choose to eat it plain. I know I'd rather eat the chocolate chip cookie dough — a pint of it, actually, while watching Netflix. Vanilla is our choice to serve as a complement, often mellowing a too-rich dessert. That's how I view the VP candidates this time around. A La Mode.
  • 3 Ways to Use the Vice Presidential Debate to Talk About Religious Liberty

    Daily Signal ^ | 10/3/2016 | Beverly Halberg
    Since both candidates in Tuesday night’s vice presidential debate have a record when it comes to religious liberty, you can bet the topic will come up—giving you the opportunity to talk with the people in your life about a deeply important issue. Unsurprisingly, religious liberty is a tricky topic to navigate because it’s personal. People feel strongly about the ability to live life as they want, but some betray the concept of tolerance by crying “intolerant!” if others want to live life through the lens of their faith. So, how do you talk about religious liberty with someone who thinks...

    DEBATE MODERATOR ELAINE QUIJANO IS ADVOCATE FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS This election's presidential debates have their Candy Crowley. In the form of CBS' Elaine Quijano. Elaine Quijano was a very odd choice by CBS to moderate presidential debates. While other networks put forward major personalities with some level of respect, CBS put forward Elaine Quijano, who is on CBSN, is relatively young and known to fairly few people until today. Why did CBS decide to shake things up with Elaine Quijano? A look at her reporting makes that apparent. She's done a lot of pieces advocating for illegal aliens.
