Who's Running These Debates, Anyway?!
The Commission on Presidential Debates was created in 1987 to manage the debate process, but when the Kerrybush comes up with its own debate guidelines, what's the Commission to do? Hang it's head in shame at its own uselessness, that's what. Turns out, not even the Kerrybush gets a say, because the networks are going to do what they want anyway.
Who'd have thought that the media would be the last measure of quality control in a presidential election?
