Slim Pickens

It’s a red-letter evening for everyone’s favorite crotchety-oil-baron-turned-wind-power-advocate. Tonight, T. Boone Pickens will run his very own post-debate “Live Event”—an online chat he’s moderating, on, which is currently comprised mostly of photos of Boone sitting in his office (lots of wood paneling, lots of flat-screen TVs, lots of incredibly supple-looking tan leather chairs, in case you’re curious), which in turn were ostensibly taken by the site’s heralded “Boone Cam.” Currently the “chat” is one-sided—“Keep your questions coming! Boone will be answering your questions as soon as the debate is over,” the moderator noted—and the results of the Boone-tastic commentary are, let’s just say, mixed:

9:50 [Comment From eazye]: HEY BOONE HOW BOUT DEM OSU COWBOYS

10:18 [Comment From Winona]: Obama mentioned Pickens in Lansing, Michigan this summer!!

10:19 [Comment From Rich]: Drill, drill, drill

10:26 [Comment From Guest]: It is interesting to here pieces of the PIckens Plan used by Obama in his answers tonight…
