Final Round Debate Live Blogging

8:58 PM: I think we have to face the reality that with Rick Perry remaining lucid and not forgetting where he is, the entertainment value of these debates really goes off a cliff.

9:03 PM: Curious what others are seeing. But the online-only portion of this debate (online only in most of the country) is almost unwatchable. I would have thought CBS would have been more up to the challenge. For what it’s worth, I’m getting a somewhat better feed on National Journal than at CBS. Big fail for CBS. Our reporter Evan McMorris-Santoro is down on the ground in South Carolina. So if CBS can’t manage the webcast technology, he’ll give us the gist when this is over.

9:14 PM: Pretty predictable exchange over constitutionality of targeted assassinations of US citizens abroad — and Michele Bachmann didn’t realize there was an issue tied to US citizenship.
