BIG BLOG DEBATE AT DAN’S PLACE….GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!….In a remarkable demonstration of the power of the blog medium ? or, um, a remarkable demonstration of something, anyway, Dan Drezner is refereeing a debate between two of my frequent commenters. The question to be considered is:

“It is a complete fabrication that the Bush administration argued in the runup to the war that there was an imminent threat from Iraq.”

I personally doubt that there is a sensible resolution of this ? although “complete fabrication” certainly puts a heavy burden of proof on the affirmative side ? so it will be interesting to see what Dan’s undoubtedly Solomon-like decision will be. $100 is at stake.

And in case anyone is wondering, I think Dan is nuts to do this. Don’t even think of ever asking me to referee something like this.
