Hearing what EZK said about the Commission on Presidential Debates, it really sounds like they should be investigated for anti-competitive practices. A non-compete clause like that basically results in them maintaining a monopoly on the debates.
Oh, it really is. The Commission adopted the poll rule after Ross Perot tanked the election for Bush. They did not want to see a repeat of that. Had Nader been in any debates in 2000, I have no doubts that Bush Jr still would have won, but it would have been at a far larger margin.
Could you guys get away with Games & Politics as the podcast name? I missed the bit where you mentioned why you couldn’t use the old name anymore :3 but with the topic of this discussion, the words “games” and “politics” are extremely descriptive.
We probably could but we have an idea for a show title that we think encapsulates what we’re trying to do (and isn’t already in use by anyone else). Hopefully all our viewers think it’s a nifty name too!
