Debate III

Michele Catalano of A Small Victory and satirist Neal Pollack engaged in a debate about Iraq and other foreign policy on BlogCritics the other day. The two went back and forth using capable albeit very familiar arguments. That is, until nature got in the way:

Neal Pollack: We’re not killing people because they’re Muslims. We’re killing people and they happen to be Muslims. But why should their grieving families understand that?
Michele Catalano: Ok, I can’t do this. I’ve got water coming under the office floorboards.
Moderator: oh shit
Neal Pollack: Likely story. You just fear my wrath.

Id love it if that happened during the real presidential debate, with Jim Lehrer shouting “oh shit,” and Kerry accusing Bush of “fearing my wrath.”
