The Wha-Huh? Files

AP via BoGlo:

The campaigns of President Bush and Sen. John Kerry tentatively have agreed to a series of three debates that both sides hope will give them momentum in the closing weeks of the presidential election, a person familiar with the debate negotiations said Sunday night.


"No deal has been reached. Reports of a tentative agreement -- I don't even know what that means -- are false," said Nicolle Devenish, communications director for the Bush campaign.

You heard right. There will and/or will not be three presidential debates. And, you journalistic elites, stop confusing poor campaign officials with your fancy-pants words like "tentative" and "agreement."
