Prez Debates vs NFL: Who's Running This Country, Anyway?
Just when the 2016 Presidential race couldn't get any wackier, of course it did.
Eyebrows and voices are now being raised as the political poobahs are realizing that the NFL actually plays games on Thursdays.
But, as in most political campaigns, why let facts get in the way?
In other words ...
Then again, maybe not.
It didn't take a Pulitzer Prize winner to quickly uncover the reality that a non-partisan outfit called the Commission on Presidential Debates set the 2016 dates a year ago.
Still, that was so last year. Who remembers stuff that long ago, anyway?
But that's not the cool part.
So, whom to disbelieve? Tough choice:
- A newbie politician who should be able to produce the letter as easily as he could produce a tax return; or
- A league office that has a history of denying items that were allegedly delivered to it.
Or will this merely be another loose end that gets left hanging for the moment?
Other than that, what to do on the Thursdays in question is a no-brainer.
Debates happen, but nothing gets sorted until the fact checkers do their own version of instant replay.
