Isn’t this a moot point anyway?

December 11, 2009

Think Progress is bent out of shape because Sarah Palin refuses to say whether or not she would debate Al Gore on the science behind climate change. Palin is worried that she won’t get a fair hearing –

Oh my goodness. You know, it depends on what the venue would be, what the forum. Because Laura, as you know, if it would be some kind of conventional, traditional debate with his friends setting it up or being the commentators I’ll get clobbered because, you know, they don’t want to listen to the facts. They don’t want to listen to some reasonable voices in this. And that was proven with the publication of this op-ed, where they kind of got all we-weed up about it and wanted to call me and others deniers of changing weather patterns and climate conditions. Trying to make the issue into something that it is not.

A legitimate concern in my opinion, but probably a moot point. As far as I know Al Gore has never agreed to debate anybody on this issue. I do know that there are a number of challenges outstanding that he has ignored.

Palin does screw it up but not agreeing to a formal Oxford style debate –

INGRAHAM: But what if it’s an Oxford-style, proper debate format. I mean, he’s going to chicken out. I mean, if you challenge him to a debate, do you actually think he would accept it?

PALIN: I don’t know, I don’t know. Oh, he wouldn’t want to lower himself, I think, to, you know, my level to debate little old Sarah Palin from Wasilla.

Just my opinion but I think she should accept in that case.

not much else happening this morning other than my cold is back with a vengeance.
