The debate(s)

I had a great time last night watching the Canadian leaders debate and twittering about it in real time. Connected to a few other people twittering about it, and got a few reactions to my posts from some of my Facebook friends. It was interesting, too, to discover that CBC was monitoring Twitter and reported on the reaction of microbloggers on The National news at 11:00.

I only gave in once to the temptation to watch Palin and Biden once. After the Canadian leaders started talking about crime, I briefly switched channels. After hearing Palin say “nucular” twice, I was happy to switch back to listening to St├ęphane Dion, who’s more articulate in his second language than Palin is in her first.

I’ve yet to go back and watch the full VP debate, but fortunately I have Palin’s Debate Flow Chart to help interpret her responses. Brilliant.
