Tonight's debate already happened according to this AP article. (via Atrios)
CORAL GABLES, Fla. Sept. 30, 2004 — After a deluge of campaign speeches and hostile television ads, President Bush and challenger John Kerry got their chance to face each other directly Thursday night before an audience of tens of millions of voters in a high-stakes debate about terrorism, the Iraq war and the bloody aftermath.
Read the whole thing for yourself. Unbelievable. Just last night The Daily Show did a bit where Ed Helms was telling Jon Stewart what happened at the debate. JS was like, "How do you know what happened, Ed, the debate hasn't even happened yet?" And EH said, "You see Jon, we have a narrative, and we're going to stick to it. So no matter what happens during the debate, we will shape it to fit that narrative."
So utterly ridiculous. My advice? After you watch the debate on C-Span, turn off the television until 11:00 at which time you should tune in to The Daily Show's live post-debate analysis.
I'm cautiously optimistic about how this thing is going to go down. Despite all its scripting and the 32-page "memorandum of understanding," it could still be interesting.
