Let's Just Blatantly Manipulate That Town Hall Debate

Coming home from work a few minutes ago, I heard a great offer on WBT radio from Pizza Hut: if you are in the audience at the Town Hall Debate between Mitt Romney and President Obama, and are called on, if you ask them "What topping to you prefer on your pizza: pepperoni or sausage?" Pizza Hut will give you free pizza for life.

Isn't that brilliant, in a manipulative American way? Instead of asking a substantive question, you whore yourself out for free stuff. And I'm sure that other companies will follow Pizza Hut's lead and try to horn in on the debate, also. You might not get a substantive question all night. It might go like this:

Mr. President? Coke or Pepsi?

Governor Romney? Are your Magic Mormon Underwear boxers or briefs?

President Obama? Windows or Mac?

Governor Romney? What's your favorite brand of peanut butter?

And so on. You get the idea.

If it keeps the substantive issues out of the public forum, it works to Obama's advantage.
