But if you ask me, Andy should have followed his own advice and brushed up a little bit before debating Chris, radio hosts Jack Tomczak and Benjamin Kruse, or even the callers. Because what I hear in the now-concluded debate (recorded last night) are lots of people shooting down the same NOM-workshopped talking points (e.g. "sex ed" has been taught to kindergarteners), religiosity (e.g. he claims Earth is only six-thousand years old), side-stepping rhetorical questions (e.g. "Which parent did you not need?"), and self-satisfied belief in his movement's own press releases (throughout) that lost at the polls earlier this month.

Listen for yourself. Debate starts around 14:00:
