In fact, a Levin and Limbaugh moderated debate would be more interesting and probably more fun than most such affairs. Who doesn’t look forward to the spectacle of Mitt Romney sucking up to talk radio hosts while simultaneously trying to appear loftily Presidential and above the fray? It could be delicious. Indeed, this kind of debate might be much more illuminating than most “debates”. Which candidate, if any, will dare to suggest, even mildly, that the Great Limbaugh might be mistaken about anything? More probably, which candidate would most thoroughly abase themselves before their inquisitors?
But I suspect that the NO LIBRUL MEDIA AT OUR DEBATES stuff is a bargaining chip and that what we’ll really get is Candy Crowley and Chuck Todd tossing softballs to the crazies at the Ronaldus Maximus library next year.
