To support the analysis in my video, I include clips of the October 9, 2007, Republican presidential candidate debate, the full transcript of which is available at: nytimes.com/2007/10/09/us/politics/09debate-transcript.html
I took a short clip from an October 11 segment on "The Colbert Report" that is available on the comedy central website at: ntral.com/motherload/index.jhtml?ml_video=139
