Open Post - Discuss the first GOP Debate, Hosted by Fox News - BONUS: Play Wingnut-Bingo!

It's getting crowded on the clown car so it's time to toss some passengers out to make some room. Time then for a Fox News sponsored first debate between the top ten (according to Fox polls) candidates.

The participating candidates in order of percentage votes are:

Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Chris Christie and John Kasich will all participate in the debate so it is bound to get noisy. Possibly nasty too as the top ten step up to their podiums to state their claim to the throne at the expense of their fellow GOP contenders.

This will be Donald Trumps first face to face debate with other GOP candidates so it is next to impossible to predict how he will handle this type of situation. We can assume that as the front runner he will go in feeling confident that his strategy of destructive politics has been a good tactic for him so far therefore  we might see fireworks. He's certainly not held back his brash approach to politics since he announced his intention to run and if placed in a hard place or if he feels under attack from the moderators or fellow candidates he is likely to implode. If he doesn't lose his temper it will be because he has been advised to show a better more presidential side of himself. Not that Trump takes advice from anyone but himself. It's safe to say that all eyes will be on him.

The debate can be viewed tonight at 9.00 pm EST on Fox News

Also, follow the tweets about the debate here! This should be a lot of fun as well.
