Well I likely won’t be adding to the bandwidth later tonight, I’m sitting by a pool in Maui (it’s just 2PM here) and around the time of the debate, my wife and I will be showering off and heading to a luau where I will imbibe large quantities of rum-based drink and pulled pork. I hope to come back later tonight to hear that once again Romney kicked Obama’s butt - good luck Romney and good luck Free Republic live thread!

I’ve just modified the drinking game rules.

No longer drink when the servers don’t respond.

Drink when FReepers complain that the servers don’t respond.

See, the glass is not only too big, it’s irrelevant.

The real question becomes: how big is the bottle?

I'm the same way, Doc !

The loathing engendered by learning of the maggøt back in '07 has matured to a well-rounded, full-bodied hatred.

For me it doesn't really matter the outcome of this debate. Even if Romney reaches down, grabs a chicken, and bites off it's head, I'd still vote for Romney (whom I don't like).

Some great Tweets from Dennis Miller tonight:

Obama to announce that he'll abandon his "leading from behind" foreign policy strategy in favor of his new strategy of "trailing from ahead"

Firemen in Chicago in 1871 were not carrying as much water as the media is for Obama

Before the thread crashes, I’m eating chocolate covered graham crackers (cookies) and drinking Bailey’s Irish Creme. Don’t ask about my sugar level, I don’t care.

Are you guys being good and eating/drinking right, through this battle?

“You can pretty much guarantee that the people in the audience are liberal plants..you can tell right away by the questions they ask.”

Back in my banking days, at our annual stockholders meeting they used HR staff as plants to ask the CEO scripted questions. Unfortunately for him the plant asked the question backwards which totally threw him off. Hilarity ensued, at least for us! Let’s hope that’s what happens to the Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers tonight and that Big Mama stays out if it! Go Mitt!

“Bald eagle ping! Love the pics!”

Make sure you check out the Decorah Eagles site...you can see the Eagles every season,,live cam in the tree,,watch them lay eggs, raise their babies, fledge and watch the young ones fly away. This particular pair has been together a long time.

The have flow away for the rest of the year,,so nothing is happening now, site is down. However, around Jan Feb,,they will return, same eagle pair, same nest,,,wonderful to watch. Amazing!

OKay,glock!

I’ll not add very much to the chatter or erudite comments.

I’m planning to try to pay close attention, by sitting away from my computer, until I get stark, raging MAD!

I hope to be cheering like all get out for Romney, with minimum swearing at the Marxist, Crowley and my TV.

Audience Question: “Ms. Crowley, please ask Gov Romney what he will do to cut down on fraud and waste in the entitlement system”

Candy to Gov Romney: “Gov Romney...the question is...have you stopped beating your wife?...yes or no answer please”

Since I have been unable to reach FR during the last two debates, I’ll get my post in now and say I hope Romney can hold his own if not best Obama in debate #2. While Obama just needs to be charming for his base to be happy, Romney is being put to a higher standard.
