    If the Donald had been able to "moderate" his debate, I bet the percentage of time the Fox moderators spoke would have paled in comparison to the amount of hot air DT would have blown.

    I wouldn't say they're full of hot air -- I'm thinking a considerably heavier, stinkier, more fecal substance  . . .
