What more could be fairer?

From JS' All Politics Watch:
Bucher seeks debates in AG race

Madison Just when it looked like Republican attorney general candidates J.B. Van Hollen and Paul Bucher were more focused on incumbent Democratic Attorney Peg Lautenschlager than each other, things turned back to their own Sept. 12 contest.

In a statement, Bucher said he had accepted an invitation to debate Van Hollen on Charlie Sykes's radio show and resissued his proposal that he and Van Hollen meet in five debates across the state.

Sykes works at the same radio station for which Bucher's wife does an evening talk show.
Maybe Jessica could host it.

To say she and Sykes work at the same station really understates it. It would be more accurate to say that she is his project, his Eliza Doolittle.

This one is lose-lose for Van Hollen, whether he says yes or no.

Afterthought: You do usually get some credit for going into the lions' den, unless you get totally mauled, so if I were Van Hollen I would put on my flak jacket and go.

What does he have to lose, really? If he wins, he wins; if he loses, it was rigged.

A fair debate on the Sykes show would certainly be a novelty. A debate, even in that venue would clearly show much of the state what we in Waukesha county already know ... Bucher is a narrow minded, one dimensional, mean spirited bully (like his coulteresque wife) who is about to be unemployed. Any debate between the two would great fun, even if it gives Sykes a ratings boost.
