Debate Liveblogging Tonight!


I will be liveblogging tonight’s Republican debate. It’s on the Fox Business Channel at 9 pm Eastern. That’s 6 pm Pacific—or as we like to call it around here, God’s Time Zone.

The Fox Business Channel is probably somewhere on your cable dial, but you might want to check to make sure. If it’s not, you can watch the debate online at FoxBusiness.com. As you probably know, since Rand Paul has been whining about it endlessly, tonight’s debate is down to a mere seven candidates: Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, John Kasich, and Jeb Bush. I think we can expect some passive-aggressive needling of Ted Cruz from Trump (“I’m not saying you aren’t natural born, but people out there are talking….”); some SOTU-inspired crocodile tears about the lack of civility in Washington; and several stirring defenses of the Second Amendment rights of gun dealers to avoid background checks.

Should be fun! See you tonight.
