Like Obama, You Don’t Have to Watch the GOP Debate

So word is the president won’t be watching tomorrow night’s Second Republican Presidential Debate.

You don’t have to, either. I’ll be live-blogging the damn thing right here, God help me. I probably won’t do that for the Sad Remnants debate earlier, unless I sense Bobby Jindal is planning to self-destruct.

I’ve been live-blogging big events here from the beginning, but have never solicited any feedback on my approach, which is to put up segments every half-hour or so. Let me know if you have any specific suggestions.
