The Blind Leading The Blind
If this isn’t the dumbest idea I’ve heard this year, I don’t know what is:
The leaders of Alabama’s two major political parties might battle it out in a debate to show candidates how to toss around ideas and issues instead of slinging mud.
Twinkle Cavanaugh and Joe Turnham – geez, any party hacks for that matter – giving a lesson on civilized debating!? What’s next? Terrell Owens on sportsmanship and teamwork? Richard Scrushy and Don Seigelman on the importance of honesty in government and business? Roy Moore on the rule of law? I mean, come on. This is insane.
Still, it may be worth watching, if for no other reason than to test my theory that Twinkle is a cyborg. Maybe there will be one or two unscripted questions that call for an answer other than “liberal” or “activist court” or “traditional values.” You know, something like “what is the capital of Alabama?” Then, if she responds with one of those phrases, I will know my theory is correct: She is a machine programmed to spew nothing but right wing cliches and catch phrases.
