Well, they looked pretty on television and that's all that really matters.

Many media outlets are either directly or indirectly crediting three New Jersey students for the Commission on Presidential Debates' decision to appoint a woman, CNN's Candy Crowley, as moderater for this year's second presidential debate. This makes for heartwarming television, but it has no factual basis whatsoever. The three barely coherent hairdos actually insisted that the network go with a "Juiced Up Gorilla" and ditch the "Grenade."

Yesterday, Commission co-chairman Frank Fahrenkopf told POLITICO that the commission did not pick Crowley because she is a woman. "We picked the people we thought were the best, regardless," he said.

Ha! Showed them!

What a load of crap. If they wanted the best person, they would have picked a man.

Never heard of them.

You mean they advanced the image that women are capable and that girls shouldn't limit their dreams to assigned American gender roles for NOTHING!

as a woman, I'm happy that the silly petition had nothing to do with it. Crowley was picked based on merit, not on gender. That is equality. That's supposed to be the point. It's sad that so often the fight to be treated the same turns into a fight to be treated special, and thus, different.

We're going with "making crap up is okay as long as you meant well"?

Politicians the world over rejoice!

My memory of Candy Crowley is seeing her play Solitaire on her computer from the audience before one of the 2008 debates.

I, for one, think there should be a fourth debate wherein Jim Leher HAS to read tweets and present YouTube videos submitted complete with user ID. The audience would never stop laughing.

Is Crowley past her prime, or what? She just seems like your average teleprompter reading retard these days. Ooooh, wait...

I become less and less inclined to view the system's circus. It doesn't matter who wins, just like it didn't matter the last...I lost count how many times.

Give the Presidential Debates back to the League of Women Voters.

The Bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates manufactures reasons to exclude third-party candidates, which diminishes the quality of the debates.

The two major parties shouldn't be permitted to own the United State's political process.

So basically these 3 young girls completely missed the point since a man woman reading the teleprompter distracts from the real reason that the LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS is no longer hosting the debates...cause they wanted 3rd party candidates to be represented in the debates.


Congratulations to the League of Empowered Female Jailbait!

I just can't take anyone named "Candy" seriously.

If was able to learn to take the names Dukakis and Bush seriously, you can learn to take the name Candy seriously.

I thought that too, but it was just the vice-presidential debates.
