Debates?

I saw a headline that gave me a laugh:

"Rick Perry to Attend Next Five Debates"

When have we ever had to suffer through endless meaningless "debates" like this?  These are not debates; they are free commercials designed to give the press an excuse to provide national news coverage to a bunch of clowns that have done absolutely nothing to deserve our attention.  And of course, the press plays along, pretending that there is something newsworthy in the sight of a bunch of Republicans spouting the same self-serving lies that they have told for decades, and which have put our country in the condition it is today.

Obama has not been a particularly strong President, but the notion that any of these fools could possibly be a viable alternative to him is just crazy.  Yet, the press is going to continue to serve the Republican party and its rich masters by doing everything it can to make ignorant voters think that it would be a really good idea to turn our country back over to them, four years after they destroyed our economy.

Be fun if they debated Mormonism.

Wouldn’t do America a damned bit of good, no… but that’s not their aim anyway.
