This is why I don't watch the debates-Live Blogging

I don't watch them because I end up yelling a the TV. I yell in support of Kucinich and why he doesn't get more time to speak. And then I yell at the moderators and the Big Three and how much I dislike Clinton and Obama's avoiding the question. I can stand Edwards if I had to. I will update this to tell you if I actually made it through the entire debate. Yay Kucinich actually got to speak and it is only 40 minutes into the two hour debate, what the fuck.

Ok I like Richardson on Education, mandatory preschool, full day kindergarten and two years of higher ed for a year of service, which I support.

Second shot by Biden at the other candidates especially Clinton and Obama.

Blitzer said he was going to ask every candidate about National Security versus Human rights and then he ignores Kucinich and Kucinich says "hey" and Blitzer blows him off, what the fuck, I have a feeling I am going to be saying that a lot tonight.

Third question for Kucinich, yay. I love the challenge to Edwards and Clinton. Kucinich, when he gets to talk, does seem to push the other candidates as does Dodd.

Fourth question for Kucinich and again he takes a shot at other candidates and at the administration reminding everyone that he wants to impeach this administration. Yay Dennis.

Wow nice loud applause for Kucinich on his view of a need for a pro-choice supreme court appointee.

Ok so I gave up at 10:00.

It is so frustrating how these "debates" are designed to reinforce the notion of the media ordained "front runners."

It is annoying and we need to alter the whole debate format.

I have to wait for some on-line snippets, so thanks for the blow-by-blow.

I'll suggest, though, that a campaign of calls to the networks and letters to our respective editors might, might encourage some degree of change...

Not that I'm holding my breath or anything.

I barely watched this one. I can't stand how they ignore Kucinich and how they kiss up to Obama and Hillary.
