No, the suggestion I've made is that since journalists have long since abandoned any pretense of being fair and balanced, let each person in the debate pick one moderator. That way Crowley or Axelrod could be Obama's pick, and Mark Levin or Sean Hannity could be Romney's, and they would take turns asking questions, and if one interrupted then the other could interrupt "the other guy".

Most political pundits know that presidential debates, particularly these absurd "town hall" debacles, are more about who makes a gaffe or has an "oops moment" than about who brings the better policy to the table.

But before I make my case with regard to the pushing of "gaffes" in one particular direction, let me disarm the same media I will later take to task (of course, you can never really disarm them ... they have a permanent round of journalistic bullets to fire).

I know conservatives and Republicans are upset over the perceived bias of Tuesday's debate moderator,...
