Campaign 2016’s Silly Season: A Weekly Tweet Round-Up July 31

We slog through the twitter streams of the 2016 Presidential candidates, and give you a weekly round-up of the more entertaining ones, every Friday.

The Republican Pre-Debate Frenzy is in full steam, with GOP candidates (presumably) saying anything to get their poll numbers up. The debate is Thu., Aug. 6, at 9 p.m. on Fox News, but only the 10 polling highest make the cut. And debate-watchers, be sure to check out City Paper on Wed., Aug. 5, for a set of play-along bingo cards.

While most candidates play at being "regular joes" (see above), Trump straight up has pressing I-own-a-golf-course duties.

Attention bulk-woolens buyers and people who like to ask questions! Meaningless graphs ahead. (Somebody forgot to buy an apostrophe for "Kohl's".)

Democratic contender Lincoln Chafee rarely tweets, and frankly, he seems to be running in another race in another time. We last featured his thoughts on how Vietnam might have ended differently. This week:

And finally, the man who gave us the go-to conservative phrase "man-on-dog" gets a dog.
