Sounds more like a roast than a bashing.
I am sick of sound bites.
Our elected representatives should debate more often. Engaging in debate requires knowledge of a subjects benefits and costs. I respect someone who can present an intelligent case for their cause (in writing or oral debate). Too often our politicians go for the emotional response. We encourage that when we spout or parrot partisan catch-phrases. While there would be partisan posturing aplenty, I expect a debate would air more facts than a press release.
