8:26pm: Connor to Squadron: Trustafarian!

8:29pm: moderator bitchslaps connor for getting too personal. and I mean, really too personal. the audience started booing and hissing.

8:29pm: Connor to Squadron: Open your books! Who’s funding your existence?

8:38pm: Connor doesn’t kowtow to the tobacco industry. he wants everyone to know that.

clearly, the audience is mostly Squadron supporters now. Connor supporters went home to watch rudy giuliani speak at the republican convention.

8:44pm: uh oh. someone asked squadron about eminent domain in atlantic yards. He doesn’t think it was used appropriately.

8:46pm: Connor looks tired. I think all that venom spewing earlier on really tuckered him out

8:49pm: whenever Squadron speaks, an old person starts to leak….sounds like hissing…

    Qfwfq, this is brilliant. Sorry to have missed the actual debate, but this really makes me feel like I’m there. You’re the Stephen Crane of the blogosphere.

    Since when are you allowed to bring documents to a debate? I think the moderators should have put an end to that after the first time. The way Connor was presenting evidence, you would think he was on trial. And the way he was yelling at the audience/moderator/Daniel, you would think he was about to lose his senate seat….

    “bitchslaps”? Wow. I love the BHB and most of the content, but this is pretty offensive.
