Wonkette to Cosponsor Best Debate Ever

Oh boy, a "Dear Friend" email! We love getting emails from our friends!


Dear Friend,

I am inviting you, as a conservative leader, to join me and ConservativesBetrayed.com as a co-sponsor of a proposed debate between Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Rep. Ron Paul on American foreign policy and the Iraq war.

We are intrigued!

I believe there would be tremendous public interest in such a debate, especially among Republican voters.

It is obvious from the Republican presidential debates held so far that these two candidates have strong but divergent opinions about foreign policy and the war in Iraq. Both of them are knowledgeable and articulate on the subject. They have the capability to recreate the famed Lincoln-Douglas debates on one of the foremost issues of our day.

I say, let's do it!

Attached are copies of the invitations to Mayor Giuliani and Congressman Paul. I would like to add your name to those extending the invitations.

Of course, your co-sponsorship of this debate would not constitute an endorsement of these candidates.

I plan to issue this invitation in a few days, so if you'd like to have your name included in the letters, please let me hear from you soon.

Cordially,

Richard A. Viguerie

Well, Mr. Vagu.. Vigar.. friend, we, as a fellow conservative leader, would love to cosponsor this debate with you. Because when we think "modern-day Lincoln-Douglas" we, too, think Rudy Giuliani and Ron Paul. Ron Paul, obviously, is Michael Douglas. Which makes Rudy some sort of car?

But yeah, more than happy to cosponsor. We've even come up with some awesome questions!

* Mr. Mayor, how many hot dogs can you eat at one time?

* Followup: How many hot dogs would you force feed a captured insurgent if you knew that he knew where some terrorists were going to strike next?

* Mr. Congressman, if you were President, would America surrender after the first new 9/11 or the second?

* Mr. Mayor, which of your wives gave the best head?

* Followup: which gay roommate?

* Mr Congressman, would you mind just chatting about the history of American intervention in the middle east for a minute or two? We just need to set up Rudy for a solid insulting come-back.

Ok, that's good for now, right? Oh, can we hold the debate at your place? Our apartment's a total mess right now. And can we, halfway through, just drop like a shitload of angry ferrets from the ceiling? Like instead of the "sitting down" part? Cool, looking forward to it!

Martha McSally is worried. Everything was coming up Martha when Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey picked her to fill the late John McCain's Senate seat. But now the junior senator has to hold that seat in 2020, and actual elections are where she has her troubles. Kyrsten Sinema, she of the fierce wardrobe, defeated McSally last year when they were running against each other for Jeff Flake's old seat. Arizona hadn't elected a Democratic senator since 1988.

McSally's likely challenger next year is Mark Kelly, who's a goddamn astronaut. We appreciate her service as an Air Force pilot but really, Kelly's been in space, where the Klingons are. Kelly's identical twin is also an astronaut. McSally has four siblings and none of them are astronauts or even her twin. She can't win this.

Besides, this is Kelly's campaign announcement video. When his awesome wife, Gabby Giffords, shows up, we just lose it. Why are we even bothering with an election?

FINALLY. Of course, we say "finally," because we haven't been behind the scenes in the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees to witness the negotiating and wrangling firsthand, so we don't know what it's taken to make this happen, but clear your calendars for July 17, because Bobby Mueller is goin' to Congress!

Committee chairs Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler sent the letter late yesterday, accompanied by a subpoena, for Mueller to testify at 9 a.m. Eastern on July 17, which is a Wednesday, so you will presumably not be busy with brunch. The hearings for each committee will be back to back, after which members of Mueller's staff will meet with committee staff behind closed doors.

Schiff told Rachel Maddow last night that it should not be viewed as a friendly subpoena, because as we all know, Mueller has been very reluctant to become the star of the political circus this will surely create. However, he's gonna have to suck it up, because as we all saw after what happened when Mueller addressed the nation for 10 whole minutes, there is great value in actually having Mueller breathe life into his own work, for an American audience that hasn't read his 448-page report. (And we don't blame them/you! We probably wouldn't have read it all if it wasn't our job. It would probably be on our "list," like "someday I am going to watch 'The Sopranos' start to finish finally. And then I will read the Mueller Report!")

Point is, it needs to happen on live TV, where people can gather around at work and on the train and in the Fantastic Sams while they gets their hair did, and let this highly respected public servant tell the story of how America's most hostile enemy attacked the 2016 election in order to help Donald Trump, how the Trump campaign was positively orgasmic over that reacharound, and how Trump criminally obstructed the investigation into that hostile foreign attack at every turn.

And because Robert Mueller is a patriotic American who respects the rule of law and our institutions, he will be complying with the subpoena, because of fucking course he will.

Right off the bat, we have a couple of questions:
