C-SPAN delivers: Announces full live coverage of Saturday's Herman Cain-Newt Gingrich debate
Last week, you no doubt recall, we wrote here about the Lincoln-Douglas style debate that Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich agreed to have in Texas this coming Saturday evening. Technically, it's a fundraiser for the Texas Tea Party Patriot PAC.
The lengthy verbal duel, with time for fully-developed answers not 30-second sound bites, was designed to circumvent the media's usual entertainment format, designed to produce TV news, gotchas and show off network stars as interrogators. The topics are current economic and social issues and the timekeeper is Rep. Steve King of Iowa.

Cain and Newt are both winners in my book.
A real debate. Not a big media press conference. This ought to be good.
5 pm Eastern, I will be home from work, woohoo!!!
I am really excited about this. I like both of these men.
I think it has the potential to be the best debate so far!
What the hell are they debating about. They agree on everything.
My prediction is it still won’t be enough time for Gingrich to speak, and Cain will have trouble using all his time.
Ninety minutes of thoughtful, detailed debate over serious issues, officially as part of a party fundraiser. With no commercial breaks and Rep. Steve King as timekeeper!
Hallelujah! Let’s hope and pray this catches on. I am soooo sick of these 30-second soundbite, gotcha, brainless, pointless verbal slanging matches overseen by lefty broadcast clowns. Serious debates, cutting out the MSM entirely would be the “conservative” thing to do.
Remember, you can always pull it up for free on C-SPAN’s online video library anytime.
I’d like to see Newt demolish 9-9-9.

I know, but I am always working when these things are live. For once I want to see it live...and this is my opportunity.
You KNOW there will be a live thread covering it and I for once, want to be apart of it!
What does a FORMER President have to do with Cain? Is Cain apart of this “FORMER President”?
If so, spill it. We need ALL facts now.
5 pm PDT 8 pm EDT
Yes! Thanks for posting :-)
These two have an alliance. I think Cain would be happy to be VP to Gingrich. And then he can learn and be the President after. I love these two together.
This might be good. It’s very surprising to me that Cain agreed to this. He seems more fitted to the 30 second sound bite. Newt can go on for hours - as he did day after day in the House Special Orders.
I do not see any upside for Cain - a huge one for Newt.
It will be interesting.
