Liveblogging Tonight’s Republican Presidential Debate

PROEM:

I appear to have been, as they say in the software industry, hardware-bound in my attempt to liveblog tonight’s Republican debate via Twitter, i.e. for some reason my Twitter input box would hang up, while my hard drive was spinning furiously, and I fell too far behind to be able to catch up in real time. I will convert the notes I continued to keep into a retro-running diary, which I will post over the course of the day tomorrow, and have the Anchor Rising hardware committee perform a top-to-bottom review of all liveblogging procedures in preparation for future events.



Tonight, Anchor Rising will attempt to determine if a Presidential debate can be liveblogged 140 characters at a time, through the magic of linking Twitter and the traditional old venerable blogosphere together.

The debate is being held by ABC News, and begins at 9 pm.

As all Twitter comments will now be funnelled to the Library of Congress by Big Brother, this paranoid wary observer will be commenting down here.

Now, will A.R. accord this same interest and courtesy (live-blogging/live-tweeting) to the Trump debate …?

“Diane sawyer demands a specific number of new jobs that will be created.”
… and she has already asked this of President Obama, right?

Nobody is suggesting that illegals be ripped from their houses, Newt.

You were doing better than me. I missed the first 45 minutes because I couldn’t get the live-streaming to work. I, however, happily blame ABC and not my computer. (I finally found a radio station streaming it.)
“Sawyer and Stephanopolous are awful, and about 1/3 as smart as they think they are.”
Heh. Yes, but it was gracious of them to attempt to simultaneously quizz and educate the Neanderthal … er, Republican candidates.
