America's SgtMaj as moderator:
|"Gentlemen, if these become knife hands the debate will be over early."|
"You will have two minutes to speak." Loudly thunks tomahawk into moderator's desk for emphasis. "Any questions?"
"Sir, your time is up...YOU'RE DONE! STOP TALKING WHILE I'M TALKING!"
"Gentlemen, what is it about two minutes you can't comprehend? No wonder politicians can't cut the deficit! I will NOT allow you to use time you do not have."
|"Did someone mention cuts?"|
"STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP! FREEZE CANDIDATE! FREEZE!"
"Talk over me one more ti... SON OF A...!" Takes the stage, heaves offending debater's podium overhead and smashes it to splinters. "WE WILL HAVE GOOD ORDER AND DISCIPLINE!"
Although any Presidential debate I moderate may not clear up any political issues, a demonstration of Irish Judo is always in order. I suspect more broken furniture and flaming debris would add a little character to the proceedings.
