On his Tour de Victime/Mendace Charles Koch just challenged Bernie to a debate! [View all]

There it was front page Yahoo interview today, Koch throwing down the gauntlet, calling Bernie and others "liars" who are "afraid" to debate the Koch ideology and machine. It's a flat out challenge and open invitation to draw the hermetically protected Koch into an actual debate with a genuine fact based liberal opponent.

Charles Koch will look like the self-promoting coward he is if he tries to weasel out of this debate into which he just slurred Bernie and liberals. Bernie should loudly and repeatedly announce that he accepts Koch's challenge and demand this debate.

I don't think this violates DNC rules on candidates debates. But if it does, then have another excellent liberal, coherent messenger like Liz Warren or Sherrod Brown follow through with this opportunity to get a Koch into an actual debate of ideas (instead of the typically lying junk Charles' tour is currently peddling through the MSM.)
