Nobody For President: Liveblogging America's Longest Debate
Oh, the laughter! They are laughing now. Laugh, clowns, laugh. Ha ha ha ha ha. They are laughing about the WAR IN IRAQ. Welcome to the second grueling hour of this groundbreaking round-table discussion featuring rich, vain psychopaths.
7:08 PM -- We should send Hillary, Barry and John to defend the Embassy in Iraq, and then bomb it, from space.
7:09 PM -- If only I could see the people in that auditorium. Are they dead? Gassed? There's applause, but that's clearly canned.
7:10 PM -- Here is a drinking game for this debate: Drink and drink until you lose consciousness.
7:15 PM -- So Hillary wants students to have the right to be a Nazis?
7:16 PM -- Russert wonders if all schools have Nazi pogroms.
7:17 PM -- Barry Obama would also like to force our students into Nazi pogroms.
7:17 PM -- John Edwards doesn't want the military people sleeping on grapes.
7:18 PM -- Try it. Turn up the sound so freaking loud that the floor shakes. Then you'll hear them talking about Nazis and Grapes, too.
7:19 PM -- Hey, they are kind of down on President Bush, aren't they?
7:21 PM -- The Edwards' campaign just sent out this email: OBAMA HAS TAKEN MORE MONEY FROM DRUG MANUFACTURERS THAN ANY OTHER CANDIDATE FOR FEDERAL OFFICE THIS CYCLE ....OBAMA'S CAMPAIGN HAS NUMEROUS TIES TO THE DRUG COMPANY LOBBY
7:21 PM -- Brian Williams can't pronounce "Nevada," either.
7:22 PM -- Ah, time to talk about Yucca Mountain. People in Nevada don't even talk about Yucca Mountain. The population of this state has more than doubled since Yucca Mountain was proposed as a nuclear-waste storage site. Honestly, nobody even knows Yucca Mountain is even a mountain.
7:23 PM -- OMG Barry and John both hate Nevada.
7:23 PM -- Wait, Illinois has nuclear capabilities?
7:27 PM -- Programming Note: Jim Newell is going to live blog a bit of the "Spin Room" nonsense while I actually venture into the "Spin Room" and try not to knife anybody.
7:29 PM -- Did Edwards just snarl, "And don't piss me off"? This is such a strange, painful experiment in very loud audio.
7:40 PM -- THIS STALE COFFEE WOULD SURE BE A LITTLE BETTER IF YOU HADN'T TAKEN ALL THE HALF & HALF AWAY, NEVADA DEMOCRAT ORGANIZERS.
7:48 PM -- Ha ha, Brian Williams is so bored, he thinks he's still in Los Angeles.
7:56 PM -- Almost over almost over almost over. Terrorists will build hotel rooms in Vegas.
7:58 PM -- Please see the second hundred comments here for discussion of the crucial BLACK - BROWN issues.
7:59 PM -- Hooray!
