Political Superbowl

Bala Ambati has a proposal to turn the "boring" Presidential debate into a kind of steel cage death match.

So I propose to make the debates into an NCAA tournament with brackets of a series of 1-on-1 debates. This would allow for real debates and challenges of mettle and grace under pressure. It would give opportunity for Vegas bookies to make money, thereby enhancing the public's interest in the goings-on. We could even get moderators of interest (bring back Bill Clinton, Newt Gingrich, Bob Dole, Al Gore for guest appearances as moderators on themes of their interest). It would transform the boring into a sporting extravaganza!

The finals would resolve to something he calls the "Russert Bowl", which can have all the hoopla of a major sporting playoff. My only question is whether cheerleaders will be allowed. Nothing follows.

Just as long as they don't hold the "Super Bowl" in a different country, something the NFL is apparently considering doing with the actual Super Bowl.

Maybe they could create Full Harmonic Convergance by having the "Russert Bowl" during halftime of the "Super Bowl" between performances by the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders and Janet Jackson.

Wretchard asked "My only question is whether cheerleaders will be allowed. "

Seems so. In my estimation, the cheerleaders arrived ahead of the players, e.g. "Obamagirl."

If Russert is at the Russertbowl, that's one cheerleader already.
