I gotta learn to read — I thought the debate was tonight. Oh well, guess I’ll see the highlights or lowlights tonight.

I’m hoping somebody hogties Chris Matthews and Matthews impersonator Daryl Hammond replaces him. ;-)

I think the odds are extremely good that more than 1 candidate will push back against a question from Matthews. He’s been asking for it and it will play well with the base.

The debate is tonight if you're watching live from France, for instance. :)

LOL

Seriously, I wonder if any of the debate will show up on international news. I get the English version of DW from Germany — I believe for the last debate, the news did a story on it. Kind of surprised me, since the station is somewhat anti-American and pro-Democratic party.

Well, the markets close at 4 pm Eastern, and my guess is Maria is usually home by 6:30.

I don’t get the facination with Maria. She’s exceedingly average, and isn’t nearly as much fun to look at as the babes on Fox.

2000 UTC, or just under 32 minutes by my watch.

Seriously, it's:

- 4 pm EDT
- 3 pm EST/CDT
- 2 pm CST/MDT
- 1 pm MST/PDT

Those in other time zones can handle the translations.

Very true. That having been said, with perhaps the exception of Jane Skinner, even the Fox babes can't hold a candle to The Hammer.

What I can't believe is it's in Dearborn. That precludes any serious discussion as to the WOT.

Hope security's tight.

That it does.

Say, the Dow Industrials are currently about 64 points above the previous record close.

I think it would be spectacular for ALL of them to end up doing this. (actually it would make an interesting drinking game)

Chris Matthews list of questions to ask:

1st Question: "Senator, when did you stop beating your wife, and why?"
2nd Question: "Is there any truth to the rumor that you enjoy running down loose dogs with your car in the dark of night, and can you prove this is a false rumor?"
3rd Question: "Have you ever met Hillary Clinton, and what do you think of her Mao-tfits?"
4th Question: "Do you think that Sen. Craig is a pervert, and was that YOU in the next stall?"
5th Question "Senator Clinton, who is wearing nicer clothes than you, is now opposed to the war. How can you not oppose it?"
