I have a friend and co-worker going tonight, I told him if it gets way too one sided - just yell out “YOU LIE”

PRE-”DEBATE” PUZZLE

-— Take the name of an Eastern university where an important Debate takes place. Add the letter ‘E’ and rearrange ... one result is a two-word term that might describe the event’s “Moderator “. What is it? -—

I think the bar has been set so low for The One that he will be declared the winner even before the debate is over.

Crowley has been getting heat from both sides. I think she will be fairly civil.

“I just looked it up, one spoke for 60 minutes, then the other spoke for 90 minutes and then the first rebutted for 30 minutes. No mention of a moderator.”

The days when intelligent discourse was prized and people didn’t measure attention span in seconds... sigh.

Perhaps they should start a thread telling folks to keep their page number at 50 instead of 250. It might help with bandwidth.

I bet this thread will be going pretty fast. Until the debate starts.

How I wish FR could handle the load for debates and special events. Why not a chat room? Just for events? Can’t they handle thousands and stay live and fast?.

Romney needs to do a preemptive strike against media bias :”If you Candy Crowly interrupt me or allow Obama to interrupt me , if the questions you picked are gotcha questions against me then you prove the media is biased to the American people”

I forgive FR for not being able to handle the intense simultaneous posting traffic it must endure during debates. I can’t imagine the bandwidth demands resulting from such activity.
