Join us for live blogging of the Republican-Democrat debate now.
[7:06 pm] Anthony Dent: opens up the debate with a defense of conservativism. But, didn’t he (and I) vote for McCrappy?
[7:08 pm] The Dems give it a go: oh, a cheap shot at Joe Wilson. Awwww, awwwww, awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
[7:10 pm] Here we go — the “party of no” swipe thrown at the unsuspecting Republican panelists.
[7:09 pm] Oh my goodness, the premise is apparently that “Obama isn’t a marxist, socialist, grandma killer.” I disagree.
[7:10 pm] First Question regards Afghanistan. Anthony Dent takes it on: listen to the generals. The Dems agree but add that Obama should be “careful.” Good point.
[7:12 pm] Oh snap! Jason Sutton gets in the discussion: fight the war to win baby.
[7:13 pm] Question to the Dems about Iran. Answer: “Iran is important.” George Bush has been a bully towards Iran (okay, I didn’t make that up, just in case you thought I did).
[7:14 pm] Anthony Dent responds with the suggestion that the negotions over Iran haven’t worked yet, so why would it work now?
[7:15 pm] Education policy: Undocumented immigrants should they be allowed in schools? Ummmm . . .
[7:17 pm] Dems believe that education is not only a political right, but a natural right (I guess).
[7:18 pm] Anthony Dent explains how if you undermine one law you undermine all laws. So, let’s be intellectually honest (hmmm I like this guy).
[7:20 pm] Question to the Dems about how to improve public schools. Knee-jerk reaction: “What would Obama say?” Can they say anything against this eternal will?
[7:22 pm] Amit and that other dude haven’t said anything for the Dems. And, is Bryan Weynand even here? Oh, he’s awake!
[7:24 pm] Jason Sutton tackles global warming. Don’t even get me started. . .
[7:24 pm] An out of control audience member (later identified as Bjorn) held up a sign that reads: “Citation Needed.” Oh man, I laughed.
[7:26 pm] The Roosevelt institute people are not kidding about “TIME!”
[7:29 pm] Kyoto Protocol is debated. Dems: let’s replace it so we can “fight” for our generation blah blah blah. Republicans: Europe didn’t accomplish goals = joke. Ha. Ha.
[7:30 pm] Healthcare. Should there be a public option? Republicans: No, because players in the private sector will be undermined.
[7:32 pm] “Washington post is my citation!” A bewildered Anthony Dent responds to the out-of-control student . . . oh the humanity!
[7:33 pm] There are fifty-million uninsured? WHY DON’T THE REPUBLICANS TAKE ON THAT FIGURE? Citation needed.
[7:34 pm] Healthcare is evil. Oh the negative externalities!
[7:36 pm] My computer battery is running down and I reaaaaallllllllllyyyyyyyyyyy want to leave. But, this has been fun : ) (And Anthony, just ignore Bjorn, buddy).
