Happy Saturday, For a Record peeps! We donâ€™t wish to keep we from a pleasing Saturday we have designed (#sleepingin), so letâ€™s get right down to a flavors of theÂ week.
THE ART OF DEBATE (OR LACK THEREOF)
Fox Business News and a Wall Street Journal announced Thursday a lineup for subsequent weekâ€™s debate, and usually 8 possibilities will seem in #GOPDebate 4.0â€™sÂ prime time slot: Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Jeb(!) Bush, Carly Fiorina, John Kasich and Rand Paul. Left out in a cold/happy hour debate: Chris Christie (supposedly one of a rising stars from 3.0), Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal and Rick Santorum. Wishing they could simply be there: Lindsey Graham and George Pataki.

BEN CARSON: FICTION WRITER?
Back in a day, Ben Carson was an indignant immature male disposed to assault who could have left to West Point on a full grant if he wanted to. Or was he? Thatâ€™s all entrance into doubt this week. Two published accounts have unknown people sayingÂ they have no memories of Carsonâ€™s aroused episodes. On this, Carson (sort of) defends himself:Â â€œIf we select not to trust it, if it doesnâ€™t fit a account that we want, thatâ€™s fine.â€ But another partial of his story is simply not true;Â Politico suggested on Friday that Carson did not indeed get a grant to West PointSome contend that this is adequate to disintegrate a front-runner
RIP, FRED THOMPSON
And now, a impulse of overpower for Fred Thompson, former senator, â€œLaw and Orderâ€ actor and 2008 presidential candidate
The Donald is hostingÂ SNL tonight! This is unequivocally happening,Â and who knows what itâ€™s going to demeanour like. So letâ€™s livetweet this things up. For a Recordâ€™s Jessica Estepa
And given it seems critical to echo this: Really, Martin Oâ€™Malley, we do know who we areâ€¦even if some other Millenials donâ€™t
