Democratic gubernatorial candidate-hopeful Jerry Brown threw down the gauntlet, calling for a three-way debate between himself and rival Republican candidate hopefuls Meg Whitman and Steve Poizner. Today, in a statement released by "Team Poizner," Communication Director Jarrod Agen responded in the affirmative, adding some zingy adjectives for the opposition:

Steve Poizner is happy to debate his plan for California against lying corporate CEO Meg Whitman and special interest career politician Jerry Brown. We match up nicely against those two and are willing to debate anywhere, anytime. The voters of California deserve to see these candidates discuss solutions for California and answer difficult questions in an unscripted, unedited setting.

A suggestion for those who might be in attendance: Bring a plastic rain poncho to protect yourself from the all the mud that will likely be slung.
