Pre-debate Prep from Political Survivor

Here’s a quickie to help you prepare for the Republican debate on Thursday August 9. In 2012, my wife and I noticed certain phrases being repeated and decided to make a list. That list follows. You shouldn’t consider it a debate drinking game—just drink and enjoy the verbal roller derby.

Consider this list a stimulus for you to begin collecting phrases for the 2016 race. Trump already has a few: “Huge!” “Loser!” “I’m very rich!” …and so on.
