An Experiment: Live Blogging the Republican Presidential Debate

This week The Curmudgeon is going to try something new.

On Wednesday night, October 28, at 8:00 p.m. (eastern time), CNBC will broadcast another Republican presidential debate. Actually, there will be two debates: the debate of the lesser candidates, to be shown at 6:00, and the real debate, with the candidates people are actually interested in, at 8.

Assuming he can find a live feed of the debate – and CNBC’s web site suggests it will offer such a live feed – The Curmudgeon is going to offer his own distinct brand of commentary during the debate. Some of it, he hopes, will be incisive and focused on the substance and the issues while some of it, if you have been following this space for the past few years, will be critical, sarcastic, and snarky.

You are cordially invited to sit with your laptop, tablet, or phone on your lap and follow the blog as you watch the debate. If you are so inclined, you also are invited to make your own comments, whether incisive, critical, sarcastic, snarky, or anything else (except profane, please). Instead of leaving any comments offered during the debate down in the vastly under-used “comments” section at the end of each blog item, The Curmudgeon will cut and paste your comments directly into the blog itself as you offer them.

Even if you disagree with him.

While he suspects this will be a solo performance, he hopes it won’t and that we can have fun together.

Join us at 8:00 on Wednesday night. It could be interesting.

    You’re stealing my act! As you know, I do an awards show play by play on Facebook. (I used to do it for The Bachelor as well, but when they sunk to having the men actually fight physically, it was a new low, and I abandoned ship–or…fantasy suite.)
