Hello! Please return to Salon later tonight to enjoy our live coverage of the First Official Debate of the 2012 Presidential Election. The debate begins at nine. To pregame, enjoy Steve Kornacki's explanation of why it will be a ridiculous comedy show.
Justin Elliott, Holly Noe and I will make with the sober analysis of the policy proposals of these very serious and credible candidates starting at 8:45 EDT. If you want to join in the fun, use the Twitter hashtag #SalonGOP.
