What Fresh Hell Is This?

Teh Birther Returns

In case you missed it, here's the official announcement:
Newsmax Media and ION Television, one of the nation's largest broadcast networks, will collaborate to host a Republican presidential debate on Tuesday, Dec. 27, moderated by businessman Donald J. Trump.

The Newsmax ION Television Debate will be held at the Hoyt Sherman Theater in Des Moines, Iowa, from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. ET – and will be the last forum of major Republican presidential candidates a week before the Jan. 3, 2012 Iowa caucus.
Let's just review some of the players here, shall we?

First there's Newsmax - 40% owned by local media mogul Richard Mellon Scaife.
Second, there's Donald Trump - Birther.

A splendid time is guaranteed for all.

I just wonder how Scaife's paper will be covering it.

I wonder if Colbert can pull off getting a debate. I'll bet Buddy Bomer, Jon Huntsman and Fred Karger would show up, at least. And if they were running as Democrats they would probably get a lot of mileage out of appearing on a Colbert debate.
