A better way to judge debates
I propose that we judge debates the same way we judge rodeo contests. The candidate who rides the toughest bull(sh*t) should be given a score in proportion to the difficulty. For example, Clark would have won tonight based on the level of difficulty.

We should also have rodeo clowns too. So that when a bull(sh*...) pundit gets out of hand, the rodeo clown can come and distract him to give the candidate a moment to think things over.

Well, do you have a better idea?

1. Sadly...
The only rodeo clown you'll be seeing in the general election debates will be the president himself.
