I humbly propose we save everybody some time and replace all future presidential debates with this clip.

Hilarious, but accurate caricature of the American political process.

Sadly, the presidential debates are not debates, they are platforms for candidates to get out some catchy sound bit, with which the idiot media can run.
For a very thorough read on this, and other interesting stuff, written with some satire, see "Idiot America, How Stupidity Became a Virtue in the Land of the Free," by Charles P. PIerce.

Thanks J.L. for the post and link. Sadly that summed it up quite well. I would love to see a "real" presidential debate not an hour and a half of a moderated political ad. Viewed and noted.

That pretty much sums it all up which is kind of funny but also kind of sad. Thanks.
