The two pundits will debate for 90 minutes in presidential debate format, about the current presidential election on Oct. 6, 2012, at 7 p.m. CT, from George Washington University in Washington D.C. The event, aptly named “The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium,” will be streamed live for $4.95, and half of the profits will be donated to various charities.
