Viral Election Funness

Via Aaron Williams, the guy who draws Nodwick (if you have to ask, you're not a gamer), comes a link to this YouTube video synchronizing the three 2008 Presidential Debates.

Of course, these guys were helped immensely by the fact that the second debate was a complete retread of the first. Can we do away with the "Town Hall" format, please? We never get anything new out of it.

It'd be nice if they actually had a debate as opposed to free 90 minute talking point ads in prime time for the candidates. The format, as this video points out, is mostly relevant to the camera crew than the audience.

Sadly neither the candidates nor the media have much motivation to make any substantial changes that may impede their BS peddling or diminish their cash cow on ad revenue respectively.

It's not as bad as it used to be. The first, and definitely the third, debate had rules where the candidates could directly respond to each other. Much better than the past couple cycles, where it was just two guys taking turns giving stump speeches, as you said.
