Terrific Debate News

I like this move.  I don’t support Mr. Harper, but I support this decision.

Now, for our next debate change, can we please skip the part where we get “ordinary Canadians” (read: “moronic Canadians”) to come in and ask the “real questions” (read: “moronic questions”) especially since the questions is the same every time.  It goes like this”

HOST: “And now, a question for an ordinary Canadian in Halifax, Nova Scotia…”

OC: “Hi.  I’m angry, and I’d like to know what these leaders are proposing to create jobs in Halifax.”

LEADERS: “blah blah blah…”

HOST” And now, a question from an ordinary Canadian in Winnipeg, Manitoba…”

OC: “Hi, I’m angry, and I’d like to know what these leaders are proposing to create jobs in Winnipeg.”

You get the idea.

Instead, why don’t we have a debate, (ie. not a question and answer period with the high school dropouts who call into Cross-Country Checkup) hosted by a university professor, author, or other leading thinker?  And why don’t we debate an actual proposition, instead of winding on for 3 hours at a time about Health Care for three minute intervals, all while the moderator desperately tries to establish what the candidates are actually disagreeing about.
