This is an open post for us political tragics who actually enjoy the perversity of watching politicians utter set piece policy statements to questions from self interested journos moderated by blow dried television spokes models.
Will Kevin Rudd spend the evening debating himself? Will the John Howard shoulder twitch go into overdrive? Will there be a knockout blow? Who do you think will win or won? Which way will the Channel 9 worm turn?
And lets not forget the worms of the press gallery, special attention should be paid to those insular hacks who spend more time talking to themselves than us, so reserve some of your scorn and bouquets for them too.
By the way, The Greens are hosting their own worm powered forum in Canberra before, during and after the debate so if there is anyone there who can supply us with regular updates from that event it would be appreciated.
So, bring your own rhetorical worm, a bottle of scotch, humour, bile and cynicism and lets have some live blogging fun at their expense.
Update (RC): I thought this would be a good chance to try out a live chatroom. It’s now open here, and we’ll leave it up until after the debate.
