Editorial: Imaginary numbers

Yahoo News is reporting that Martin O’Malley (Gov-Md.) may not meet the entirely arbitrary criteria to be featured on stage in the next Democratic debate.

Why does a party with only 3 candidates need “criteria” to enter their debates? Are they saying their stage is that poorly constructed that it will collapse if more than two people stand on it at once?

Sure, it makes sense for a field with 14 or more people vying for stage time, but since these capricious numbers have already forced Larry Lessig (Harvard prof.), Jim Webb (Gov-Va.), and Lincoln Chafee (Gov-RI) out why even bother anymore?

Besides aren’t the VOTERS – not producers for the corporate media – supposed to be the ones who decide who our next president is?
