In what may be the last Iron Blog Battle - certainly the last in its current form and state - I am pleased to announce the return of a very special lady. She has agreed to step out of retirement to make the ultimate Challenge, and I eagerly await the sparks that will undoubtedly fly.
Our Challenger this week is the former and first Iron Blogger Republican, the Queen of All Evil, Rosemary Esmay!
Iron Blogger Democrat Jay Bullock, your undefeated reign as the most successful Iron Blogger is about to see its toughest Challenge, yet. I summon you to the battlefield of ideology to clash wits with your long-time nemesis.
If memory serves me right, there is simply no Topic this week that weighs heavier than the one I have chosen for this Battle Royal. Therefore, the Topic of the Battle is this:
Bush v. Kerry
Which man, which ticket
is best for America? Ultimately the voters will decide, but as we read your arguments bear this in mind: I, creator, founder and Chairman of Iron Blog, will be the one and only Judge of this Battle.
(Attention readers and commentors: I will be exceptionally harsh and quick to strip and ban abusive or trollish comments this Battle. I want the comments civil, well thought, well written and polite. If you cannot debate constructively you will be removed. Leave the snark to the Combatants.)
