Bush, Kerry Line Up for Key First Debate

Though I already pretty much know who I'm going to vote for (well, "for whom I'm going to vote," of course, but though I love being correct that just sounds stuffy), I'll definitely be watching the debate tonight.

The stupid thing is that the two campaigns came together to form a 32-page memorandum outlining what will and what will not be acceptable in the debate. One thing (brought up by Kerry's camp, I'm sure) is that there will be no direct questioning allowed from one candidate to the other. They also don't want the TV stations to show one candidate's face while the other is talking... but most stations have said that "they'll report what they want to report, how they want to report it."

Basically, "hang you and your stupid debate bylaws." I couldn't agree more.

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
