Would you watch a very heavily moderated debate with RW wingnuts ? [View all]

Heavily moderated = no broad brushes, only facts allowed, no personal attacks, no Gish gallop, etc....

The thread about MSNBC got me thinking about this. The debate would have to be very heavily moderated to eliminate RW bullshit.
