Unfortunately, they both have

Unfortunately, they both have too much personal animosity towards each other that it just completely derailed the debate. They attacked each other and not the topic.

But I don't like debates. They're almost always a waste of time with everyone deciding that the guy they backed going in was the winner. In a debate, there has to be a winner and a loser with both sides irrationally intractable.

I prefer a dialectic to debate. But given RW and Kinsella seem to hate each other so much, a dialectic probably couldn't happen with them either.

It was pretty disappointing.
