My friend Darin and I have been having frequent late-night political debates. The late-night thing is in part because I am naturally nocturnal and have no reason to be otherwise at the moment and partly because Darin lives in Thailand so it's not the middle of the night for him. I like debating with Darin because while we disagree on quite a few things, he keeps it respectful and fact-based (well, some of his "facts" come from Fox News) without getting emotional or rude.
Plus, he at least acts like he thinks it's funny when I make the "experience is less important than judgment" argument by saying "Strom Thurmond was in the Senate for over 250 years (Fact: He was part sea turtle. Look it up.) and I wouldn't have voted for him for, well, anything." A lot of your political debaters would tell me to stop making crap up and find some real arguments.
Anyway, we decided Tuesday night (Wednesday morning) that we should have our own Hannity and Colmes-esque show and are in the process of pitching it to CNN and MSNBC. Darin took the first crucial step in this process by making us a graphic.
Wouldn't you watch us? Or TiVo us, just in case you, unlike me, are not generally awake at 3am? I promise, on television, to be less disturbingly orange.
