The hashtag for this weekend’s NH GOP presidential forum is #FITN, which sounds a bit like HP Lovecraft sneezing.

Don’t worry, debate fans — the Democrats will be out on stage, per Bloomberg Politics:
… Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, who doubles as chair of the Democratic National Committee, is so convinced that there will be a contested primary for the presidential nomination that she has has begun planning for “a series of sanctioned debates that we expect our presidential candidates will participate in,” she told C-SPAN’s Newsmakers program on Friday. Referring to Bloomberg’s poll showing that Democrats want a challenge to Clinton, Wasserman Schultz said, “I expect that voters who believe we should have a Democratic primary will get their wish.”…
And then, the kicker:
Interviewed from New Hampshire, where she was observing and offering tart commentary on a two-day conference featuring GOP presidential hopefuls (“a clown car,” is how Wasserman Schultz described the gathering), the congresswoman was especially critical of her fellow Floridian, Jeb Bush. Noting that she had served in her state’s legislature for six of the eight years of Bush’s presidency, Wasserman Schultz called him “inflexible” and “unreasonable.”
“He had absolutely no interest in working with anyone who didn’t share his opinion,” she said of Bush, who is having difficulty convincing some conservatives in his own party that he’s rigidly ideological enough.
In case anyone had trouble identifying the Permanent Repub Establishment candidate until now.
Apart from the white-collar version of the WWE, what’s on the agenda for the start of the weekend?
