#GOPDEBATE ... Detroit Poisoned, Con Game Out In The Open

Senator Roark, from 'Sin City';
Power don't come from a badge or a gun. Power comes from lying. Lying big, and gettin' the whole damn world to play along with you. Once you got everybody agreeing with what they know in their hearts ain't true, you've got 'em by the balls.
We thought we pull up the Senator Roark quote again, since it is indicative, he was, most likely, a Republican.

When headlines folliowing your political party's Presidential Debate are "Donald Trump defends size of his penis' and "Trump Brags About His Penis Size: 'I Guarantee You There Is No Problem", it's time to fold up, close down the shop, and pull up the AARP "Hobbies You Can Do" page.

Lying "Big" isn't working, and "the whole damn world" isn't playing along.

The Clown Car went off the road last night, and was totaled, irrepairable, completely demolished.

And there was a warning of what was to come.

The Clown Car's Engine Light went on earlier in the day, when 47% Mitt Romney, the GOP's 2012 Presidential Election Loser, gave a speech from Mormonland, dissing and smearing Trump, in a political equivalent of a school yard taunt of "Your mother wears combat boots".

Who was the bright light bulb in the GOP Establishment that thought this was a good idea?

Alex Pareene, over on Gawker offers that Donald Trump Was Set Up
If so, it was a brilliant maneuver. Tonight we saw the attempted assassination of front-runner Donald Trump, beginning early and sustained for almost the entire night. Fox prepared elaborate multimedia presentations designed to make Trump explain away his erratic positions and policy proposals. They hammered him on Trump University and got him to flip-flop on immigration. All night, Fox’s moderators forced Trump to directly reckon with his contradictory positions and statements, complete with video packages illustrating those contradictions. No other candidate faced a similar onslaught.
If indeed Fox lured Trump into an ambush, it would be perhaps the canniest move the conservative establishment has made this entire election cycle, and the first documented example of anti-Trump coordination actually working (to whatever degree it will turn out tonight “worked”).
Even in this weird year, a contested nominating convention is still most likely to occur only in the wet dreams of campaign trail reporters. But this might have been, in miniature, a practice session for a wild and unlikely anti-Trump putsch in Cleveland this summer.
It lead us to Tweet earlier this morning;
‪#‎GOPDebate‬ ....Irony of Irony, Faux News fact-checking Trump ...With penis-defending, next debate they be throwing own feces at each other

The "Fact-Checking" of Trump last night had to have Roger Ailes rupturing squeeze balls, since the long con of his network is propaganda, and his people presenting "facts" was like having them go ice skating in late March, ignoring the "Thin Ice" sign.

They should have run this clip before the debate last night;

The other headline to come out of last night's debacle was Little Marco Rubio effusively defending Michigan Governor Rick Snyder over his handling of poisoning the residents of Flint, despite news that Snyder knew as early as October 2014 about the issue.

The fact is they are all Phonys and Frauds, it's just that Trump isn't an offical member of PartyofNoicans, so, the GOP Establishment wants a dues-paying phony or fraud to get the nomination, not some Interloper, who is playing their con game bigger and better.
