Open Debates

From Slashdot:

slithytove writes “As many of us are aware,
the presidential debates are currently controlled by an organization called the
Commision on Presidential Debates. As anyone who’s seen a presidential debate recently
could guess, the CPD
does just what our two major parties want:
exclude third parties
and impose rules that
make the event more of a joint press conference than a debate. Non-establishment
candidates Michael
and David Cobb will be having
an actual debate this Thursday
. After debating each other, they will be rebutting
the points Bush and Kerry make in their pseudo-debate. Free
Market News
will be streaming it and providing a download afterwards.”

Does anyone else really freakin’ hate the italics in Slashdot posts? They make reading
more difficult and less pleasant.
