The next Presidential Debate between Obama and Romney will be held at 9pm EST / 6pm PST tonight.

This debate will be in a "Town Hall" format, where the candidates will stand without podiums and answer questions from "undecided" voters who have been selected by Gallup. The moderator chooses which questions will be asked. There are no follow-up questions allowed and the candidates cannot ask questions of the audience.

If you can't watch the debate on TV, it will be steamed online at the following links:
CBS News
C-SPAN
Politico
MSNBC

No podium or no lectern? 
I am an old man, and I've seen many problems, most of which never happened.

So in other words, all softballs.

They've changed the format a little. The moderator can now ask followups, and the candidates get 1 minute to answer.

Obama is doing a lot better this time. He's very attentive, direct, and has been frequently calling out Romney's policies.

I loved watching Mitt get told to basically shut up when he tried to break the rules.
Oh, you take the high road, and I'll take the low road...

My mother did not CHOOSE life. She planned for it.

Is that weird monkey-creature-looking-thing supposed to be a BLACK MAN?

Did Romney really just say he wants to make sure women are able to make dinner? Really?

Yes, yes he did.

My impressions so far:
• Obama found his balls
• Romney is a fucking whiner and is flip-flopping like a dying fish while giving no specifics

Obama's strengths are at least showing this time. When they get questions about reproductive rights and equal pay, Obama wins hands down. Also nice shots at Rmoney for being a corporate vulture.
