Hey, did you see the big, huge CNN-Youtube Presidential debate for the Democratic candidates? Yeah, me neither.
But Time‘s Ann Marie Cox did and she even liveblogged the event, hitting upon all the high points. “High” as in “drunk because alcohol was the only thing that made it bearable”.
7:22 PM: HOW DOES BARACK PROVE HE IS BLACK? Pantone, maybe?
7:26 PM: Hillary “can’t run as anything besides a woman.” There are clinics for that.
7:26 PM: Edwards graciously abdicates the votes of sexist bigots.
7:27 PM: CNN found the only widely-viewed downloadable video of two lesbians on the internet that isn’t porn. Dodd wants to not have to spend money on his daughters’ (gay) weddings. Richardson wishes the women in the video were hotter.
Heh. You can see all the recap (39 questions all told) here. Meanwhile, Cox’s colleague Joe Klein seems to think the GOP candidates might well drop out of the upcoming CNN-Youtube Republican debate (Sept. 17) after watching the Dems perform. A sort of payback, perhaps, for the Fox News snub handed out by said Dems.
