Our Candidates Should Turn Tuesday's Debate Into "Pin the Hammer and Sickle on Chris Matthews"

The Democrats will not participate in a debate with Fox News hosts, lest they be asked difficult questions. Nonetheless, the GOP will have yet another MSNBC debate on Tuesday with Chris Matthews, who offered these choice words last night:
"[The Bush Administration has] finally been caught in their criminality," Matthews continued, although he did not specify the exact criminal behavior to which he referred. He then drew an obvious Bush-Nixon parallel by saying, “Spiro Agnew was not an American hero."
Matthews left the throng of Washington A-listers with a parting shot at Cheney: “God help us if we had Cheney during the Cuban missile crisis. We’d all be under a parking lot.”
You know, I will be gravely disappointed if the GOP candidates do not make an issue of this at the debate.
If the GOP candidates are too chicken to take on Chris Matthews before a live television audience on Matthew's gross bias, they will have disgraced us all.
At the very minimum, I would expect the GOP candidates, should they get another, and I paraphrase Matthews' question, "Don't you want to give Bill Clinton oral sex" debate question, should respond in the Reaganesque manner of "What the hell type of question is this you filthy, dirty leftist?!?!"
In other words, I expect our candidates, who have not run from these lefty debates like the Democrats have from Fox News, to turn this debate into a game of "pin the hammer and sickle on Matthews," i.e. challenging the premises of his questions and criticizing him for wasting all of our time.
