    If I was caucus voter on the fence, or barely leaning toward Trump, and looking forward to the last debate before the vote to make up my mind or to confirm my Trump decision, I might think, "who does this asshole think he is ?

    Anybody who thinks that *already* thinks that and doesn't need his debate-dump theatrics to confirm it. Please: who actually votes based on the debates? I have to hand it to T-Rump on this one; for a candidate that almost never talks about actual policy, he knows enough to know that debates don't mean shit and policy is the last thing most voters are interested in discussing (or debating).

    I had to look up "Pubah":

    pubah

    a word that can be used in any context, oftenly exclaimned in times of rage or frustration

    Whoops, except you are wrong. I can see how AF's spelling threw you off. The official spelling is "Poobah": a humorous reference to a high-ranking person. I always remembered this from The Flintstones (order of the Water Buffalo):

    "Grand Poobah is a term derived from the name of the haughty character Pooh-Bah in Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado (1885).[1] In this comic opera, Pooh-Bah holds numerous exalted offices, including "First Lord of the Treasury, Lord Chief Justice, Commander-in-Chief, Lord High Admiral ... Archbishop ... Lord Mayor" and "Lord High Everything Else".
