Head to Head debate tournySubmitted by funkmasterizzy on Thu, 01/31/2008 - 16:14
The state of debate is laughable in American politics where the media showcases who the first few states deem to be frontrunners thereby shaping the outcome of the Presidential Race and focusing on Entertainment style news of who-digs-on-who instead of debating real issues. What to do?
A head to head tourny, with real positions and real issues. Hire real debate experts from organized national debate organizations to moderate and commentate who will hold participants to very specific time limits and assure them all equal time to argue their positions. No more bullsh*t. 3 thirty minute rounds.
John Vs. Mitt
Mike Vs Ron
Jon Vs Ron
Mitt Vs Mike
Ron Vs Mitt
Mike Vs John
Then have a day long televised marathon showing each individual debate uninterrupted with post debate commentary from debate experts who will talk about the points of good debate rather than more bullsh*t news. HOW DO WE GET THIS DONE!!! Looks like CA already dropped the ball but maybe we can get another big state to do it. Whaddya think?
