What's really fascinating is that they are both good speakers regardless of their politics or how much alcohol they drink. I put up a snippet because it was a very long format. I hope I didn't have too much of one person talking. Amy set up the debate with twenty minutes each then ten then...I'd say that Hitchens was booed far more than Galloway, but both got catcalls. Hitchens repeatedly scolded the audience and reminded them that they were on TV. Democracy Now has the full debate. I'll probably put up more later in the week.

Gurgly live blogged the debate. The funniest quote was by Galloway.

Galloway: "What you have witnessed is something unique in natural history: the first ever metamorphosis from a butterfly back into a slug.
