#Rumble2012: For those who couldn't stream the event in that air conditioned auditorium

There was another debate this week, "The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium" between Bill O'Reilly of FOX News and Jon Stewart of Comedy Central fame.

For those who had trouble streaming the event live after paying their $4.95, The Washington Post offers a synopsis and five key take-aways. They also made a pretty comprehensive list of the best one-liners from the rumble.

For those who watched the event the next day (like me), #rumble2012 was more deliberative than combative and serious than funny. Both O'Reilly and Stewart offered their perspectives on the current state of the economy, foreign policy, and their own personal views on the role of entitlements and government involvement in everyday life.

For those who weren't able to get that streaming working, Slate offers a good summary here.

And you can still purchase and now download a copy of the event on the now less-trafficked Rumble 2012 web site.
