Will they debate? Is LePen going to get national media air time? Is he a good TV speaker?

I'm not sure.

Family just arrived that claimed that Chirac will never debate Le Pen because Le Pen will throw him off with his 'low-class' language (Chirac will not know how to respond). Also, Le Pen will manage to get as much media time as possible because pretty much any exposure he gets is tamer than his reputation.

I don't know how to read this. Anyone (unlike myself), who has lived in France for the past 20-30 years is CONVINCED that he is like Hitler.

My son came home with a joke that Le Pen supposedly said:

'When I get voted in, I'll give the Jews 40,000 francs to leave France. The blacks I'll give 5 minutes!'

This just seems odd, in light of this interview.

There's talk of a large block of voters who will vote for Chirac, but with gloves on, or with tweezers holding the ballot. (Oh, the French, for symbolism....)
