CNN is doing what it can to hype tonight’s Democrat town hall in New Hampshire, reporting that the last two candidates standing, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, are “turning up the heat.”

The two might be turning up the heat to lukewarm with a series of tweets playing off of Sanders’ comment to a reporter that Clinton is a progressive on “some days.” The Sanders campaign even borrowed Clinton’s typeface — pretty cheeky.

Is Sanders feeling the burn? Nah.

Clinton’s response? Bring it.

“Hillary’s not running to make a point—she’s running to make a difference”? Give the intern who wrote that a raise — a second cup of coffee, maybe.

There’s a lot of smack talk in Sanders’ corner.

Team Clinton is getting just as fired up. CNN really ought to consider making this town hall pay-per-view.

The supporters are fired up. So, just how boring is tonight’s town hall going to be?

    “I AM THE REAL COMMUNIST”

    • Jesse-Messy Hammer

      Tweet by Hillary: “This shouldn’t be a debate about who’s more progressive; it should be about who will get real results for American families.
      …If I only had a Twitter-tweeter I’d say: “Right you are, Rodham: It should be about whose platitudes more namby-pamby when it comes to protecting American families from ISIS.”

        I wish we had someone to protect us from the government idiots that seem to surround us.

    Debbie must’ve thought the Flash and Agents of SHIELD were on Wednesdays. She really needs to check the mid-week TV schedule. All they’re up against is Arrow and Supernatural. Which I’ll be watching instead.

      Too bad Trump’s in Arkansas, then. He’d fit right in with them.

      • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

        Just wait until he gets back online. Wouldn’t it be fun to watch him get into this geriatric food fight? Better duck for cover. I think they’re gonna toss the prune purée next.

        • Kevin Giltrud

          Am I the only one vaguely flashing back to that ridiculous George Clooney, Democrat vs. Democrat film, ‘The Ides of March’?

          A waste of time re-tilling old soil that everyone’s familiar with. And about as moving!

      • Dwayne Mountain Dew Camacho

        You always jump in and mention Trump.

        You obsessed much?

        • http://truthbeforedishonor.wordpress.com John Hitchcock

          Trump is a Democrat. Anyone who votes for him is a fool.

    Hey “Sharon,”

    Nice of you to display your latent homophobia with your ignorance. If you think using a homosexual sex act to describe the Tea Party is a clever insult I’m not surprised you’re dumb enough to think we’re about hate and lies.

    But on the bigger point…it seems that when the Democrats have a pissing contest they use real piss.

    • Hamm Sammichez

      Well, to be a tea-bagger, you have to have a tee-baggie, so i like to think that most liberals as the baggie. Open wide, “Sharon”.

    Their policies are crap, but it’s always good fun watching two old geezers fight.

    It’s 2016 and the US democrat party front runners are trying to choose the bigger Pinko.

  • Dork Blaster

    What next, are they going to start comparing the sizes of their Johnsons? I bet Cankles wins.

  • DaMello ® ?

    All this Progressive Muscle Showing Off will turn off the blue dog Dems and indepentants. They may even vote R.

    • Dork Blaster

      I hope you’re right, but since the D’s turned hard left a decade (or more) ago are there any blue dogs left?

      • http://truthbeforedishonor.wordpress.com John Hitchcock

        Nope. The fraud of ObamaCare showed they were blue dogs right up until the time to vote.

        Just Jim Webb I think

        • Suzyqpie

          Democrats wanted No Dam Thing to do with a sensible experienced veteran and statesman. Webb was ignominiously dispatched moments, figuratively, after he announced his candidacy .

  • surfdog

    Progressive cred ? How about any cred for either .

    Dangit – I just paid off my student loan, too. I should hurry up and take out a new loan so Bernllary Sandenton pays if off for me.

  • Acuda4me ✓Please!

    Turning up the heat? You mean like with a heating pad?

    The first of the Geritol debates.

    Why bother watching Sanders pretend to want to take down Clinton?

    • Fingolfin

      You sure Bernie isn’t having an Aaron Burr moment?

    • Suzyqpie

      Why? The $29-donation-fairness-guy Bernie Sanders is who the Democrats want to be. The corrupt and venal Hillary Clinton is who they are.
      The fantasy will not survive the rest of reality.

    • Tessa from Texas

      Speaking of the Oprah, so far I don’t recall hearing from her and I hope that continues. She is a big part of why we have the current incompetent in the White House.

      • Andrew Curlutu

        OH, she encouraged voting for Dear Commissar? No wonder I never felt inclined to watch her show.

        • Tessa from Texas

          Absolutely! She paraded him and his lovely wife out on her show and made much of the fact that this was something she had waited her entire life to do. She was very active in the election and I am pretty sure she gave him quite a few shekels along the way. I have always been absolutely nauseated at how many people (mostly women but there are some men also) worship this woman and follow her lead in everything. If she recommends a book, they read it; if she recommends a diet, they try it, etc. etc. She is a big promoter of all the New Age “touchy-feeling” spiritualism and so much more. Now she apparently is pushing Weight Watchers and has invested a lot of money to keep them going after they started having major financial issues.
          You may have gathered that I am not a fan, LOL.

  • Suzyqpie

    3) An important part of being a progressive is making progress.
    Help me out here, how does this aberrant philosophy comport with Obama’s heralded strategy of Leading From Behind….
    We don’t know where we’re going but we’re making really good time…..WTF.

  • vetgal1970

    Hillary Clinton tweets in third person. I’m sure it’s a minion but it just looks inauthentic and weird

      I thought the same thing. Pretty creepy.

      Like everything she does….

    What next?….

    yo hilary keep in mind he still has email gate and benghazi cards to play

  • yourmaster

    the only thing that will liven up the democrat debate is if 0bama appears there and reveals to the entire world that he is a gay arab communist and has decided to propose to Osama bin laden… and spread sharia law/communism across the USA …and then mentions both bernie and hillary are advocates of a pure commuism and love sharia law…
    ….and have converted to Islam (ISIS version)

    *LMAO* there’s no way in hell either bernie or hillary beat Trump.

    Regressives battling it out to see who is the most worthless

  • The_Kat ✓vilified

    Wow, I don’t even need the stove to pop my popcorn. I can just hold my Jiffy Pop over the flames shooting back and forth between these two “progressives”.

  • Andrew Curlutu

    Hmmm, let’s encourage them to fight to the point that they turn off their voters. Pas the popcorn.

  • Barry A. Brewer

    Anyone else note that all the times either of them voted with a braincell operating is what they consider a NEGATIVE?

    • Hashtag pundit

      It’s like watching the Munsters: they think the normal one is the freak.

  • chetnapier

    DAMN They are argueing over who is the biggest commie douchebag

  • Hashtag pundit

    Bernie: I’ll raise taxes to 90%
    Hill: Well I’ll raise them to a million percent!

    Hill: I marched with MLK.
    Bernie: Well I beheaded nobles in the French Revolution

    Hill: capitalist pig!
    Bernie: pro-lifer!!!
