FYI, This just came across my meetup group. As I did not watch any reruns of the debate I cannot testify that this is true, but the "electability question," was apparently cut from the rebroadcast.

Digg has a huge thread at http://www.digg.com/2008_us_elections/Cut_from_re_air_What_Fox_News_doesn_t_want_you_too _see.

Youtube videos of that clip are being taken down via DMCA almost as fast as they are posted. Since seeing the video on youtube may be difficult, I found a .torrent at http://www.mininova.org/tor/1103985 for those who want an offline copy to see/share.

What? They're like straight out clearly censoring that question? That was the one where he called everything right now absurd right?

Not quite... I guess. When Fox rebroadcast the debate they trimmed some responses from the candidates.

Huckabee, for instance had a bit at the end of a "for the kids," response trimmed to remove a reference to highway projects.

Dr. Paul's response to the electability question was apparently dropped as well. Of course, I don't think they dropped anyone else's ENTIRE question.
