Long Campaign?

It's almost August.  There are about 66 weeks until the 2016 election.  There's going to be a presidential debate next week.  The media has us in the full throws of a presidential election.

I had to laugh when I read about our neighbors to the north: A lengthy 11-week federal election campaign could give the Conservatives, armed with a significant war chest, a marked edge over their political rivals. 

You read that correctly.  They're about to have a "lengthy" 11 week federal election in Canada.

Would that our campaigns in the United States were only 11 lengthy weeks.

Game Show Network Hosts Republican Debates

I think the Game Show Network is really missing out on a great opportunity.  With so many Republican candidates, what about some debates game show style.

Imagine it....

Instead of Whammy! (the new version of Press Your Luck) they could change it up for Donald Trump and create Minority!  As contestants they have Donald Trump and whoever the other 2 most conservative Republicans are on the issue of immigration.  Picture it instead of Trump saying, "No Whammies, no whammies, no whammies, stop!"  instead he says, "No Mexicans, no Mexicans, No Mexicans, stop border crossing!"  As host, I suggest Iowa Congressman Steve King or former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo.

Or how about this...

Match Game 2015.  6 Republican candidates.  Just think of the questions.  "Johnny was so conservative." (Audience says, "How conservative was he?") "He was so conservative, that instead of firing bullets out of his gun, he fired _____________ (blank)."

Wouldn't you love to see them try to out-conservative each other trying to figure out an answer?

"Tammy was so anti-abortion." (How anti-abortion was she?) "She was so anti-abortion, that each time she went to Planned Parenthood she _________________ (blanked)."

Here's another...

Instead of Hollywood Squares, we have Conservative Squares.  I'm thinking Ted Cruz or Donald Trump as the center square.

Try this one...

Republican Family Feud.  Governors vs. Senators? Or establishment versus outsiders?

Governors vs Senators
Imagine a Republican Family Feud with on one side some combination of Bush, Christie, Gilmore, Huckabee, Jindal, Kasich, Pataki, Perry, and Walker.  And on the other Cruz, Graham, Paul, Rubio, and Santorum.

Establishment vs Outsiders
On one side Bush, Walker, Rubio, Huckabee, Perry.  On the other side, Carson, Christie, Cruz, Fiorina, Trump.
