Where can I download a somewhat high quality video of last night's debate?

Define "somewhat high quality". What do you want to do with it?

I want to cut it up into little bits and reassemble it into something marvelous. Really, I just need something that's just a step up from the quality of C-SPAN's stream. Nothing too fancy. I'd prefer a download, but I can record a stream if necessary.

The last one appeared on torrent sites within 24 hours, so cool your cut-up fingers for a wee while, Mr. Burroughs.

Now that is annoying; an hour and a half ago, I checked on *the* major torrent site, searched on 'debate' and found three very active torrents for the first debate, but now...

Looks like the search function is currently stuffed, as it can't even find 'simpsons'...

sorry to be all coy about this, I don't think it's polite to 'name names' here

I don't think anybody will object to you naming the torrent site or even linking to it. If they're willing to sue over that there's plenty of ammo in the blue already, and as long as you don't deep link there's not a snowball's chance in hell of them winning under US law (or that of most other countries, for that matter).

Ok - suprnova dot org, (NOT com or net), then search 'debate' , category TV Shows. The last debate is there now, the latest is sure to follow.

In fact debate 2 is there now, but the mirrors aren't updating properly. Goto search, leave search field blank and select TV Shows category. Clicky magic button... 702Mb xvid file.
