In keeping with today’s impromptu blog post theme of dreams involving whiskey, it appears the news is beginning to get eerily similar to a dream I wrote about here last summer:
The . . . dream took place at a Democratic Party presidential debate that utilized a new, two-part format. The first part consisted of a traditional debate, while in the second part, each candidate had to slam back seven shots of whiskey, then give a presentation and hold an open question-and-answer session with the audience.

I think it would be a great idea to have a Presidential debate in the format described above. After seven shots and open questions from the audience, it would become painfully obvious exactly where each candidate stands on every issue, whether he or she initially intended to reveal their actual positions or not. We in Pennsylvania are positively aching for that kind of candor. If you still need convincing, we’ll all pretend to be undecided!
