The [Tuesday] Papers

By Steve Rhodes / Posted on March 31, 2015

"Mayor Rahm Emanuel and challenger Jesus 'Chuy' Garcia will meet Tuesday for their final scheduled one-on-one debate before the runoff election, following previous events that have grown contentious as the candidates try to land blows and build momentum before April 7," the Tribune reports.

"The 7 p.m. debate on WTTW-Ch. 11's Chicago Tonight program will mark the third time Emanuel and Garcia have debated head-to-head since nobody was able to get a majority of the votes in the first-round mayoral election in February, forcing the two into a runoff."

If even a single question asked tonight is a question that's already been asked, I'll consider the charade a failure. I don't have much hope.

*

It's almost as if there is a list of pre-approved questions that must not be deviated from. If we can predict with a 90% success rate what will be asked tonight, don't you think the campaigns can too?

*

If I ran the show, I'd make sure that Rahm Emanuel knew he'd be cut off every time he mentioned full-day kindergarten and a longer school day when it's not relevant. And every question he reframes to his own liking will be asked again until he answers it - even if it's the only question that gets asked all night.

*

Please, please, please no lightning round asking these guys their favorite kind of pie. Please. People's lives depend on it.

*

I'll be live-tweeting the affair, as always.

Thanks, Obama!

(P.S. to reporters: He's also a war criminal.)

* Andrew Sullivan: Blogging Nearly Killed Me.

Call the wahmbulance, you got rich and nobody forced you to do it.

* AP Investigation: Are Slaves Catching The Fish You Buy?

Spoiler alert: Yes!

I mean, you never ask a question like that in a headline when the answer to be found in the article is No.

Also, I read the article.

But what's really important here is how global trade agreements need global labor standards or else we're all just like the slave-holding South; we've just pushed the worst labor practices to Third World countries where they're out of sight, out of mind - to us. Those are human beings nonetheless; now we're all Confederates.
