An argument where there isn't any real constructive debate happening,

but rather a battle of egos, pride, and vanity.

An argument where attacking your opponent's character, past, family,

or friends as well as name calling or claims of not caring

take precedence over a practical view of the real issues at hand.

A euphemism for ranting about, disliking, or even hating something

whilst simultaneously lacking any constructive criticism.
"Mom and Dad were having a Republican Debate about proper directions on the

road trip so I knew I wasn't going to be able to sleep on the way."

"We tried talking to address our relationship problems but it just ended up
escalating into a Republican Debate every time"

"The irony was that they agreed overall but would get heated about

the particulars quite like a Republican Debate."

"He said he loved the USA more than me. I disagreed and told him I loved the USA more than him.
It was a good ol' Republican Debate."

"I argued the subtle beauty of IPAs while she preferred dark stouts

and this seemingly simple mutual love of beer yet disagreement about flavors

could quickly turn into a heated Republican Debate".

ended up escalating into a Republican Debate over it."
