Triumph of the Willies: GOP Liveblogging Super Fun!
Information: The debate's on Fox News, and don't let that NBC Brian Williams commercial throw you off. People have been freaking out all day about Jerry Falwell croaking. A talking mouse in glasses is doing the pre-game -- oh, that's Alan Colmes? So that's what liberals look like? Shudder.
Tonight, we are going to do things a little differently: Updates will be in "descending order," meaning the newest ones will be on top. This is apparently "logical," but we'll try it anyway. Fun starts RIGHT NOW!!!
Come on in, and don't forget your drinks ....
