The Jon Stewart & Bill O’Reilly Debate-Like Thing, 8 PM Saturday: We’ll Blog It Live!

  Battle of the Cable Icons

One of these things is not like the othersAttention, Wonketteers! We are pleased to announce that Your Wonkette will be live-embloggening what promises to be a far more entertaining debate than that thing that happened on Wednesday. Join Your Doktor Zoom at 8 PM (Eastern) for a livebloog of tonight’s epic, not-at-all-over-hyped Pay-Per-View butting of heads between Jon “I Just Do Comedy” Stewart and Bill “Me Too, Though I Don’t Admit It” O’Reilly.

Access to the online stream can be purchased here for $4.95; reading our liveblog will not cost you a single extra penny. (If you are a fancy two-computer household, you may want to stream the debate on the faster computer and read the liveblog on the other one; the stream will also be available on a variety of TeleVisual devices as well. Also, if you are a fancy two-computer household, why are you still on welfare, huh?) We really hope the internet can contain the explosion of awesome that will occur tonight.

Please come up with rules for the Drinking Game in the comments; at the very least, they should include careful definitions of what counts as bullying attempts on O’Reilly’s part, and false equivalencies on Stewart’s.

Also, if we may channel our internal Sara Benincasa, don’t forget to stock up on beer and falafels, you filthy fuckaducks!
