Don King, are you listening? And if the world's most hair-raising promoter won't take this one on, then I officially volunteer to set it up.
Al Gore, who is making the rounds to hawk his latest book, gave the back of his hand to Sarah Palin when Andrea Mitchell asked him about the ex-Alaska governor's dismissal of “junk science” surrounding the Copenhagen climate change summit this week.
. . . . . .
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.”
No time to be shy, “little” Sarah. Shooting spitballs and then hiding behind your computer screen isn't going to get you into the White House. But nailing Gore's carcass but good – that's the stuff that conservative dreams are made of.
. . . . . . .
So as 2010 comes to a close, we deserve a break. A prime time one-on-one showdown – the people deserve this one. Bill it as “The Thrilla From Wasilla” versus “The Tennessee Tornado” – or whatever – and donate the proceeds to charity. But bring it on.
