It's debate night

...and I'll be twittering through out.

Keep in mind, the words of Bandit Six.

So every four years we elect a king. Since people like consistency, we tend to elect the same king as many times as we can get away with. (See previous paragraph.) And the king, especially in any sort of emergency, has a lot of power. They don’t always, or even most of the time, have enough to fix things right away. But they’ve got a lot of power.
Including the power to totally screw things up.

For the kids reading this, this is a very important point. When you choose your king, forget most of the reasons you think you should vote for the king. Mostly, the king can’t do much about the economy but ruin it. They can’t make you richer or smarter (although they can manage the reverse). If you want one suggestion, think about all the contingencies under which that king (or queen in this case) may hold your lives in his or her hands. And choose wisely.

Ok, Barak H. Obama just said we should be giving energy to Communist China.
That is just wacked beyond belief.

The debate still has another half hour to go, and I feel safe in predicting that MS-NBC & CNN will score the debate for Obama. Hell, they probably have already and just waiting for the debate to end for appearances sake.
