It was supposed to end at 9:30 but they kept going because they smelled blood in the water...

But when Edwards, Dean, and Sharpton realized what was happenning and actually started to fight back, Faux had to get the hell out of there and stop the broadcast.

I can't believe Faux News got to run this debate.

1. That was bizarre.
"This ends the Fox News portion of our debate."

Huh?

2. I was waiting for it to start back up
That was totally weird. I gather that the end will be shown on NIghtline. That's weird too. There were only a few more minutes left before the hour, and at least on the west coast, there was nothing but babbly filler the last few minutes, among correspondents.

There's a story here, methinks.

define what the debate is gonna be about...it ain't about gay marraiges...it ain't about values....it ain't about none of the things bush wants to steer it towards...ITS ABOUT JOBS! IT'S ABOUT THE ECONOMY...IT'S ABOUT THE LIES THAT TOOK US TO WAR!....IT'S ABOUT HOW BUSH SCREWED UP FORIEGN POLICY!"....i loved it and Faux got orders from the WH to END the broadcast cuz those uppity dems were telling the truth and people was listen and liken it!" and we can't have none of that!"

i bet our candidates were still debating and fau7x not letting them know they were fucking cut off ;shrug:

6. CSPAN says they will carry the entire debate tonight
via a local NH affiliate's broadcast. Not sure of the time, probably 8:00 (Pacific)/11:00 Eastern. They're running a Dean event now.
