If there is a debate, then it’s time to live blog. And if it’s time to live blog- without a doubt, I will be joining M. E. Sprengelmeyer from the Rocky Mountain News, on Back Roads to the White House.

Tonight, Republican presidential hopefuls are gathering in Florida for the two hour CNN – YouTube debate. Nearly 5,000 questions were submitted. The snowman is back, asking Fred Thompson a question. And, with less than 40 days until the Iowa Caucuses – the fireworks are sure to fly. Rudy and Mitt have exchanged some rather nasty barbs this week.

The big question, however, is will Anderson Cooper ask Ron Paul about his big endorsement from Pimp & Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof. Don’t believe me? Read this from CBS News: ISP: Prostitutes for Ron Paul? Or, from The Huffington Post: nevada brothel owner pimps for ron paul. But, by far, my favorite story covering the whole Pimp/Whore angle – is The Reliable Source in The Washington Post this morning by Amy Argetsinger and Roxanne Roberts. Because nothing says “Washington Insider” like starting a PAC – Hof has declared he may start one to benefit his favorite presidential candidate: HOOKERS FOR PAUL. Folks, you just can’t make this stuff up.

All in all, it’s going to be a pretty festive debate. I can’t imagine anything more entertaining than a little live blog action as events unfold! I’ll keep my eyes peeled for a question on Rudy & Mitt’s investments in the Sudan, with a follow up if the other hopefuls support ONE. The question is below, it’s from my smokin cool cousin, Cora. She’s a dual Canadian-US citizen and 2008 will mark the first time she votes for President of the United States.

It all starts tonight at 8PM Eastern. Right HERE!
