Talk Radio Awaits Thursday's Democrat Debate In Las Vegas


Talk Radio Hoping For More Hillary Debate Fireworks

Will Hillary's Halloween debate meltdown be repeated Thursday? Talk radio just can't wait to find out.

After a year of relatively boring presidential forums from both sides, the most recent Democrat Party showdown turned into a fodder avalanche, with Clinton flip- flopping over the issue of licenses for illegal immigrants in a matter of mere moments.

Even ahead of this week's potentially make- or- break contest, Hillary had already faced bad press over revelations her campaign had been planting questions using college kids positioned in the audience. With that, momentum is clearly building against her once- certain party nomination.

Now, pouring gasoline on the fire is the Drudge Report, which contends CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer has effectively been threatened that he must not pick on Hillary during Thursday's meet-up, or face Team Clinton's angry wrath:


CNN's Wolf Blitzer has been warned not to focus Thursday's Dem debate on Hillary. 'This campaign is about issues, not on who we can bring down and destroy,' top Clinton insider explains. 'Blitzer should not go down to the levels of character attack and pull 'a Russert.'' Blitzer is set to moderate debate from Vegas, with questions also being posed by Suzanne Malveaux... Developing...

That proved to be music to talk radio's ears, with Rush Limbaugh devoting much of his first hour to this development, including recaps of Plantgate and her other recent flaps. In addition, he predicted Clinton would find a way leading up to the debate to distract from her recent troubles, including possible sympathy ploys.

But do conservatives really want Hillary to completely implode? That could prove punishing to the news cycle, ultimately providing much less fodder going into the general election. That would undermine talk radio's entertainment value and even next year's ratings, which are otherwise expected to surge.

If she didn't win the nomination, however, who would it be? While Hillary's Titanic begins to sink, that's the one reassuring thought for those on the right, the realization that none of her opponents seem to have a realistic chance.

  • The media can not wait to attack Democrats and give Rudy the pass on everything

    A. his cocaine dealing campaign manager in S.C, Thomas Ravenal

    B.his mobster father who spent time in jail.

    C. His direct ties to the new atorney General Mukassey, DIRECT TIES, how many on this board knew that Rudy was law partners and personal friends with michael Mukassey? most likely only Hash, elmonica and the 2 other "libs" on this board.

    D. The pedophile priest working on Rudy's campaign, PEDOPHILE PRIEST, ignored by the MSM

    E. no bid contract to motorola resulting in dead Firemen on 9-11
    and his general failure on 9-11, his command center built in tower 7 was Rudy's choice, he went against everyone to build it.....

    F Kerik, the media covers it but is not connecting Rudy to Kerik!!!!!! AMAZING!!!

    The media can not wait to attack Hillary ( whom I do not support)

    yet, the man with the most scandals is given the pass !!

    pedophiles, coke dealers and mobsters!!! Yet since Rudy has an R next to his name, he gets the pass

    this is not even up for debate
    the media gives the pass to "R" ALL THE TIME

    i just proved it once more to you all

  • You might not support hillary, but it’s already decided she will be the nominee. We don’t have a say in that. The DNC decides not the people.

    The RNC is the same way. We should run Mike Huckabee but that will not happen.

  • Wolf Blitzer folded like a cheap suit in the debate. What a wimp! Just a bunch of softball questions and no decent follow ups.

    This is so typical of CNN. It shows the incredible left-wing bias of the network.
