That's Isaiah's wonderful take on the debates.
Does that sound familiar?
It does to me because I typed a ton and lost it all.
Mitt and Barack are scared of Jill and Gary and any other third party candidate.
They don't want a level playing field. They can't compete on a level playing field so they shut out any third party run. This isn't mean putting them on the couch. This is obvious by the fact that they signed a contract to guarantee a number of things including that third parties wouldn't be participating in these debates.
The debates are a joke and have been since the League of Women Voters was forced out by the duopoly.
So, yes, Mitt and Barack are cowards.
I had quotes that are gone.
I was typing this when Ava called.
She said, "Listen to this . . ." She held the phone up and it was C.I. speaking to a large group of people and talking about just how corrupt these debates were.
I wish I had that post.
It was amazing.
I don't know if C.I.'s planning on touching on this topic at The Common Ills or if she's going to save it for Third but she was on fire.
Again, I wish I had that post. I don't know what happened. I was typing. As I am now. Then all the sudden, everything on the screen that I had typed was blue -- as though I had highlighted it -- and when my finger struck a key, everything vanished.
But the point is the debates are a fraud and only cowards who are scared of competition would participate in them.
