  •  counterproductive (5+ / 0-)

    Having Rush and his ilk ask the questions is exactly the sort of idea I would expect a Dem troll to come up with to sabotage the GOP. It would encourage them to play even more to the deranged base than they already do.

    •  Again, it doesn't have to be Rush. (0+ / 0-)

      Bill Kristol, any random person from the WSJ editorial page, or someone less controversial/polemic probably wouldn't cause fireworks. And playing to the deranged GOP is kind of the point.

    •  Rush & Hannity are who WE would PICK!!! (7+ / 0-)

      If we got to pick the GOP moderators, that's exactly who we'd pick!

      Because it pushes the field right over the edge of Crazy Right Cliff!

      Can you imagine how bad a Democratic primary debate would be if Glenn Greenwald, Matt Stoller, and David Sirota moderated?  The GOP would have a field day!

      And that's still less bad than it would be for the GOP with Rush and Hannity, because our candidates would probably openly slap down our moderators.  The GOP candidates would be terrified of theirs.

    •  I can see the questions now (6+ / 0-)

      Limbaugh as the moderator asking the GOP candidates "who is the bigger slut," Sandra Fluke of Hillary Clinton?
