DURST: The Presidential Debate

The bi partisan Commission on Presidential Debates told Ross Perot that he should take a flying leap off a short plank into a deep ravine of vicious weasels, and the billionaire is more upset than a long tailed cat in a room full of drunken frat boys wearing golf cleats. He's squeaking and hollering and stamping his little feet, because co-chair Paul Kirk said "Participation is not extended to candidates because they might prove interesting or entertaining."Ouch! Why didn't they just say "Sorry, no clowns. Get yourself a fright wig and a funny nose, Tiny." A funny thing about old Ross; whenever he gets upset, his ears get all red and stand out, so right now he looks like a crimson Volkswagen with the front doors open.I don't see what his problem is. He's the guy who refused to debate Dick Lamm for the Reform Party Nomination and now he's crying foul? One of those freak calling the mutation bizarre things I guess. The commission did say they would re-open the question of Perot's participation "if circumstances change at any time after the first debate." Which can be translated to mean "ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha."Will Durst hope circumstances change.
