“In congratulatory letters I am sending, I challenge Senators Obama and McCain to meet me in weekly debates in cities across America with just the candidates and a moderator to keep order,” former U.S. Rep. Bob Barr said in a news release on Wednesday.

Studying on the SideThis has been a strange time to be alive.  Why do I say that?  Because within my life time we’ve had:

  • A President win almost all the states in the Union (Ronald Reagan).
  • An impeachment of a sitting President (Bill Clinton).
  • A successful recall of a Governor of California (Gray Davis).
