The un-debate

Posted By on Tue, Sep 5, 2006 at 5:38 AM

The "debates" devised by the major party candidates for governor don't impress Brummett, who sees the structure of the events as a win for Beebe.

Beebe is the clear front-runner. He has co-opted his rival into agreeing to a series of debates with candidate-friendly formats that may not be widely telecast. His rival is prohibited by the agreement from accepting any other debates, and thus from the rhetorical advantage of saying he's willing to debate anytime, anywhere while his opponent is hiding.
