Our first debate watch party was NUTS (think tons of people, Brazilian television crew, Swiss radio journalist), but at least we were prepared for the possibility, and employed our buddy/amateur doorperson Mike to keep us from being overcrowded. (And we thought debates were too wonky to attract such big crowds.) Sorry to anyone who couldn't get in, but fire codes being, umm, fire codes, our hands are tied. The lesson here for you folks is to get here EARLY if you want to get seats/space and watch the debates. You're probably not going to be able to waltz in half an hour before the debate starts.
Anyway, the next one will be Thursday at 9 pm, between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden. This vice presidential debate is one of the most anticipated of the season, and should be a wild time. We'll have the usual specials and raucous crowd--be there and be square. Because honestly we could fit more people if you all were square instead of cylindrically shaped.
