Third Party Candidate Debate: Liveblog

So, you’ve seen what the other two parties have to offer and you’re not impressed.  Or you’re horrified by the reliance and inevitable abuse of drones in spite of the fact that your elderly relatives think they’re great and will protect us from the terrorists.  Or you’re a liberal Democrat in Exile and you need to put your party in time-out until it gets the message that you’re sick and tired of being run over by the bus.

This year may be the year that a third party has a breakaway.  You never know.  The Pirate Party did pretty well in Germany last year.  So well in fact that the party itself was surprised.  It’s going to be a long hard slog to relevancy and there may be another party out there that has yet to be formed.

But tonight is their night.  This is the liveblog for the Third Party Candidate’s Debate moderated by Larry King.  You can catch it here on C-Span.  There are four candidates participating tonight:

Jill Stein-  The Green Party

Rocky Anderson – The Justice Party

Gary Johnson – The Libertarian Party

Virgil Goode- The Constitution Party

I’m not going to spell out all of their names while I’m commenting so I’m planning to just use the first initial of their last name.

No need for disclaimer tonight.  I am *definitely* voting for one of these people.  I’m just not saying which one.

So, go get yourself a glass of wine or a cup of hot spiced cider and get ready to give these four people the attention they deserve.

Ready, set, go!

Third Party Candidates’ Debate Tonight on C-Span

Hi, Sportsfans.  It looks like we’re covering presidential debates back to back.  Had I known about this one tonight, I would have skipped the drone fest last night.  You can watch the debate on C-Span.  It’s moderated by Larry King.

For those of you who don’t know who’s running, check out this article in the Christian Science Monitor for a run down on the parties that are represented and profiles of each of the candidates.

So, set your bat channels for 9:00pm and meet me back here.  Feel free to join in with the liveblogging.  I’m a little burned out from last night and a busy day today.
