The GOP Debate: 20th Time's a Charm

Posted: Updated:

The Republican candidates have just finished their 20th and (allegedly) final debate. For those of you keeping score, that's more debates than Santorum kids plus Romney sons plus Gingrich wives plus Paul eyebrows. If debates were frozen yogurt promotional punchcards, right now we'd all be stuffing ourselves on no less than two free delicious debate cones.

When I first entered the race, I was somewhat dismayed that I had not been invited to participate in all the GOP debates. Some hogwash about filing paperwork past the deadline or something. (Let me state for the record that when I am president, all paperwork deadlines will be abolished. If you need an extension on anything, you just ask for it.) But now that I see how the debates have played out, I must admit I am glad I did not get involved in this farce.

First of all, the main issue on voters' minds is the economy, yet this vital subject has barely been discussed. Frankly, I don't have a good plan for the economy either, so that's one reason I'm glad I wasn't involved in the debates. But those other knuckleheads were specifically invited to debate, and the fact that they've been so wrapped up in sniping at each other and jockeying for frontrunnership is further evidence of how out of touch these candidates are with the American people. Note to Webster's: if you'd like to pay me for the rights to include the word "frontrunnership" in your next edition of the dictionary, I could sure use the campaign funds.

More importantly, the debates are an opportunity for people to coalesce around the eventual nominee. By now, it's usually pretty clear who the party is going to choose. But with the four other remaining GOP candidates still trading blows and primary victories, it's going to be up to the voting public to decide who they like best. And do we really want to leave important decisions like this up to the public?

Let me make it easy for you. If your state has yet to have its primary, vote for me. If your primary has passed, write me in as your vote in the general election. And be sure to join my Facebook page, follow me on Twitter, and keep up with all my campaign news at my YouTube campaign headquarters, courtesy of Nerdist.

If you need further evidence of how much I've shaken up the GOP, check out my trip to CPAC in Washington, D.C. I've got the party running scared, and we're just getting started. Vote Quasniki in 2012!
