I've suggested using Obama and Romney look-a-likes to answer questions in their manner. They could use answers they've already given in interviews or highlight all the crap aspects of their candidacy - the answers they should give if honest. You could make a mockery of them and lampoon them - their punishment for stymieing real debate.
Maybe they could stage it somewhere that would get noticed. I'm not sure what's permitted.
Anyway, if I was on one of the third party's campaign teams, I'd be putting all my effort into getting something like this together. They can cry foul and bang on the door all they want. It's not going to be opened for them.
