Trump To Host Debate On Eve Of Iowa Caucuses

On the plus side: Probably good ratings. So anyone, like me, who is holding out for someone other than Mitt and Newt, can at least hope there'll be one last chance.

On the negative side: Doesn't Donald Trump keep saying he may still run for president? Isn't he also meeting with candidates for the purposes of endorsing one of them?

I don't believe that Donald Trump believes in objectivity. I think he has a pretty high opinion of Donald Trump, and objectivity would take us further from the preferred realm of Trumpicity, so I figure this is going to be largely like the boardroom from The Apprentice, with Trump basically making demands of the would-be presidential apprentices.

Still. Big ratings.

Donald Trump is pairing up with Newsmax, the conservative magazine and news Web site, to moderate a presidential debate in Des Moines on Dec. 27.

“Our readers and the grass roots really love Trump,” said Christopher Ruddy, chief executive of Newsmax Media. “They may not agree with
him on everything, but they don’t see him as owned by the Washington establishment, the media establishment.”

Mr. Trump’s role in the debate, which will be broadcast on the cable network Ion Television, is sure to be one of the more memorable moments in a primary season that has already delivered its fair share of circus-like spectacle.

Ion? The channel I watch for Psych marathons? They're a news network now, too?
