Marty Duren writes an Open Letter to the Commission On Presidential Debates. After I read it I thought of the old saying, “Show your skirt.” The euphemism is another way of saying stop hiding behind neutrality. There is no such thing. Attempts to play such a role insults our collective intelligence. Maybe that is the intention.
Then, Mike Morrell posted a link on Facebook I saw via Greg Horton describing the Leaked Documents containing the Memorandum of Agreement between the two major party candidates locking down the format and number of the debates. The piece described the agreement as creating a monopoly. Since the difference between the candidates is only slight, why exclude other voices unless we do not really want to see real differences.
