That is a very good question. Unfortunately, it isn't one that I've prepared for, so instead of answering that, here is a picture of my cat.

EnviroDude: I would love to hear some hard hitting questions. Like, for Obama - why haven't you released your college transcripts?

for Romney - Why do you adhere to a religion founded by a false prophet?

I'd like for them to be handed billy clubs at the beginning of the debate, then told whoever hits the other first will be declared the loser. Then just set them loose to say the most inflammatory shiat possible to each other.

/betting Romney would snap first, by a long shot.

KingPsyz: Honestly though, I would pay to watch a roundtable with Rmoney, Rand...i mean Ryan, Biden and Obama led by Ghostface Killah, Method Man, and the RZA

RZA: Aight, the first question is for President Ob--

Method Man: Legalize it!

RZA: Be cool, man. We'll get to that.

Ghostface Killah: The f*ck you smilin' at, white boy? Yeah you, Eddie Munster. How bout I come over there an' slap that f*ckin smirk off your face?

RZA: Gentlemen... Please try to control your outbursts. We're trying to have a serious dicussion.

Ghostface Killah: I'm seriously about to slap that muthaf*cka.

Method Man: He do look like Eddie Munster.

RZA: (sigh) I knew I shoulda brought Deck and GZA.

They need to get someone who's not afraid to ask the tough questions.

abb3w: palelizard: The SS might catch that one first.

Very likely. The question is, would they feel any obligation to tell their protectees?

Obama, definitely. Romney... eh, maybe not so much. And I think Obama'd roll with it.

Romney: "You're supposed to protect me! How could you let this happen?"
SS Detail Head: "The Secret Service is not your personal scheduling secretary, sir. When apprised of the situation, we felt physical security would be at its highest nearest the President. That was our primary concern."
Romney: "But what about my political security?"
SSDH: "Then maybe you shouldn't have given my mother cancer, sir." Into sleeve mike: "Okay, Rich Mitch is ready to go, moving to motorcade."

FishyFred: Cletus C.: "President and Exalted Leader Obama, has a meter been created that could accurately capture the stratospheric level of your awesomeness?"

"Rmoney, could you be more evil?"

Have you ever watched her show? She often lays into Obama for not being liberal enough.

Not just for not being liberal enough, but for his actual non-partisan fark-ups. When someone spends most of their time openly mocking Republicans, it doesn't make you a default Obama acolyte.

The difference between liberal commentators and their Fox brethren is that people like Maddow routinely tear Democrats a new one on their show, while Hannity finds ways to defend the indefensible. "Paul Ryan discovered raping a 7 year-old boy. Was he framed by Democrats? We'll talk about it after the break."

oldass31: A Presidential debate moderated by Fareed Zakaria would be fascinating.

Nah, he'd just plagiarize the questions from someone like Gwen Ifill.

abb3w: Maybe be evil and simply book both Romeny and Obama for an interview in the same time slot, then do a gotcha on them....

qorkfiend: incendi: Party Boy: Limeys do a better job of that.

I would love it if we adopted something similar to "the Prime Minister's Questions" here for the President to answer to the Senate. It'd be too much of a ruckus to do it in the House.

F that. The ruckus is the best part.


What's the Wu-Tang Clan up to lately? I hear they specialize in bringin' da' motherfarkin' ruckus and in diversfying their funds...

EnviroDude: for Romney - Why do you adhere to a religion founded by a false prophet?

Mr. Romney: Could you please explain Space Jesus to us? Does he live on his own planet in our galaxy or a different galaxy?

I just love the cognitive dissonance of my Christian friends who will vote for that man.

Them: "It's okay. He believes in Jesus! That's good enough for me."
Me: "Space Jesus Ain't Jesus." (I want to see that on anti-romney campaign bumper stickers)

We'd probably do with a smaller vocabulary, and there would be more f-bombs. But yeah, I could see giving that a trial run.

Sybarite: Call me when they go back to being actual debates run by an independent body rather than carefully managed stage show the RNC and DNC agree to put on every four years.

Let them ask questions of each other. And possibly give them each one free punch.

FlashHarry: i see GOP wingnut candy crowley will be moderating one. that should be interesting.

Her name and your inability to capitalize it is driving me a little nuts. I'm thinking "What's wingnut candy? Is it like Warheads? Certainly something with no chocolate in it."

I don't think she's a wingnut, though. What are you basing that on?
