Watch Chris Kluwe debate a chair streaming live tonight
The debate the Internet has been begging for is finally happening, and you can watch it live here at 5 p.m.
For the past couple weeks, Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe has been challenging just about every Republican in the state to debate him over gay marriage. No one has answered the call, but Kluwe's going through with the debate as scheduled anyway tonight at Brave New Workshop.
Barring an 11th-hour challenger -- please Michele Bachmann? -- Kluwe will be squaring off against the finest chair in the building, with Brave New Workshop actors reading previous statements from Republicans who support the amendment to constitutionally ban gay marriage as prompts. This promises to be a very strange night, especially for KQRS host Tom Barnard, who signed on as a moderator back when it was supposed to be a debate between... people.
Watch the debate tonight here, via Barnard and The Uptake:
