Debate at Hofstra!

Many of you have noticed that the third and final presidential debate will be held tonight at Hofstra, where I am a professor at the law school. Don’t bother looking for me in the audience. The university had to go and do the right thing and gave all the tickets to students using a lottery system. Not a single professor, dean, or high-dollar muckety muck donor will get a ticket, at least not from the university’s allotment.

As for the substance and tone? McCain has hinted at a smackdown, but the format calls for the candidates to sit next to each other at a shared table. Not exactly conducive to accusing your opponent of being pro-terror, now is it? We shall see…

Update:  I am sooo tired of Joe the Plumber
