Bubba will battle the Decider in a debate at Radio City Music Hall. MSG Entertainment is billing its salty showdown as “the hottest ticket in political history.” How hot? It’s $60 to $1,250, depending on how close you want to get. Don’t expect fireworks—ex-presidents tend to be chummy and WJC is practically BFFs with W’s daddy.  —PZS

Update: The duo will make an earlier appearance in Los Angeles. Details here.

Daily News:

The two ex-presidents have agreed to face off on the same stage as part of MSG Entertainment’s third annual “Minds That Move The World” speakers series at Radio City Music Hall in midtown Manhattan on Feb. 25, 2010.

The Republican Bush and the Democrat Clinton - always cordial, if not exactly chummy - will “debate topics ranging from the economy, to foreign policy, to the current administration,” according to a statement put out Tuesday by MSG Entertainment.

A political “debate” between Clinton and Bush?  (gag, gag!)  At $60 to $1250 a seat, may I ask where the money is going?  To give more food stamps to hungry kids living in tents and shacks by the freeway ramps?  To take back to Baghdad the ancient artifacts stolen from their famous museum?  To support research on PTSD?  To help prevent people from dying of water-borne diseases?  To put Wall Street thieves in jail?  Clean up polluted Appalachia? The possibilities are mind-boggling!
  Can’t you just see it as a follow-up for Hollywood entertainment-fatigue?  Political entertainment—the new craze!  Everybody’s doing it.  Get in on the ground floor before this one takes off.  Unlimited residuals and spin-offs.  An experiment in American Freedom of Speech.  Anything goes—except four-letter Anglo-Saxon denigrations.  Jim Lehrer as moderator with his usual penetrating questions and inimitable savoir faire.  Be there or be square.
