I wanted to drop this blog post before the next Presidential debate started because it's good to know why the biggest reason for the debates becoming such a pile of shit aside from the candidates we have to choose from. It's because it's pretty much run by a corporation -non partisan democrat and republican venture - that has a whole crazy list of rules and requirements that pretty much guarantee that it will be a shit debate by the two most boring presidential candidates around.
Taken from here, but the 'rules' exclude among other things
- challenging questions
- assertive moderators
- follow-up questions
- candidate-to-candidate questioning
- rebuttals and surrebuttals
So yeah, it's no wonder these debates do nothing to let us know anything about anything when it comes to our choice of bad and worse.
