Red State Update doesn't need your fancy town hall

The boys at Red State Update had their debate credentials revoked by the Secret Service, and they’re mad as hell about it.

“I don’t know what kind of threat we are to national security,” said Jackie Broyles, who along with partner-in-crime Dunlap will be putting on a show at the Belcourt Theatre at 9:30 p.m. tonight. “You’ve got McCain the Manchurian Candidate and Obama palling around with all the terrorists, so you would think Dunlap and me would be somewhere in there, but I guess not.”

Jackie said tonight’s debate will feature everything a town hall debate should have, including puppets. The pair said they may watch tomorrow’s “real” debate, but they’ll do so begrudgingly.

“I guess we’ll have to look at some of it, if we can stay awake through it,” Jackie said. “They wouldn’t let us in there, and McCain don’t even want to go to them!”

(By the way, Jackie’s fighting to replace McCain with Palin tomorrow – “she’s better than Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell sisters,” he said.)

Unlike tomorrow’s debate, tickets for tonight’s town hall are available to the general public (for an $8 fee). Prepare to see the First Amendment stretched to its limits.
