Is the undercard debate even relevant anymore?
It's as relevant as it's always been.

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

This debate is meh, they're completely ignoring each other (so far) and the moderators don't know how to moderate properly or get the candidates to bounce off of each other. I think they're actually trying their best to avoid each other.

Actually, I wouldn't really call it so much a debate than a Q&A session :P

As someone on twitter said: "There's been virtually zero follow-up or questioning on anything any of the candidates have said"

These two moderators don't even know how to do a debate :P

Um, it seems pretty chaotic already.....

There's a debate tonight? Man, after the Powerball jackpot went away, I stopped noticing anything.

Guess I'll try to stream it in the background while I do work.


EDIT: Wait, they're already done with the undercard? What, did they each just get up and go "PLEASEpleasepleaseplease notice me!!!"?

Wierd, it's over now, but for some reason, the cable schedule shows the debate being scheduled for another hour, but it's over now.

Also, the whole bit about yadda yaddaing about clinton was apparently their last question and I didn't realize it was. That's how inattentive I was.

The main one will be a proper debate at least, I hope that this was the last undercard because it seemed utterly pointless.

Lol.

The undercard (or should I say, nocard) debate Q&A session is over now anyway, the main one will be in a little under two hours.

You didn't miss anything with the undercard debate.

I heard Santorum suggested people Google him. That's...not a good idea.

I wouldn't even have called it a debate, it seemed more like a town hall or Q&A session than a debate, those two moderators don't even know how to moderate a debate. The only interaction between candidates was a bit between Huckabee and Santorum at the end.

low quality moderators for low polling candidates I guess.

Well, that and it's FOX Business hosting. The toughest question they're liable to get is "Obama: Terrible President, or the WORST President?"


EDIT: I now have Lou Dobbs on in the background, and I can feel my IQ dropping by the second.

Switch to CNN for the awesomeness of Erin Burnett! lol

Yeah, I switched back over to CNN because I don't care for Fox or want to watch that,

Meh, I don't have cable so CNN won't let me watch. Maybe if they stream it later.


EDIT: Oh god, Carly Fiorina is talking to Lou now. I'm pausing the feed so I don't break my laptop.


EDIT#2: So...Santorum basically said Iran wants to use their nuke program to EMP the US, which will somehow bring about the Mahdi and let them control the world.

I'm pretty sure that's not how the Mahdi works, either in terms of an EMP being involved, or in ruling the world (any more than the Second Coming of Christ would lead to Christians "ruling the world"). It's like he's been watching religion-infused James Bond movies.

Yeah, when he was talking about using an EMP, I thought to myself, why go through the trouble of smuggling a nuke into the US and instead, just hack into the systems and screw with it.

Also, the dang moderators didn't even field that question to the other two, just shows how poor they are at their jobs.

Is Mahdi where you use a nuke to take down the shield generator so the Fremen can attack the Saardakur?

I thought it was spelled Saarduakar? or maybe just Sarduakar.

Anyways, we all know that the only thing that comes out of Santorum's mouth is, well, santorum, lol......

What even is this "Undercard debate"?

It's the Losers debate.

It started out as an attempt to manage a huge field, now, it seems to have little to no purpose, especially after it turned into a Q&A session with this one.
