Vikings punter Chris Kluwe wants to debate a supporter of the proposed Minnesota marriage amendment, which would limit the definition of the term to a union between a man and a woman. But invitations extended to folks like former Vikings center Matt Birk and Congresswoman Michele Bachmann weren’t accepted.
So Kluwe will be debating an empty chair.
Yes, the tactic has been used recently by Clint Eastwood, but if no one will step up to the stage and take on Kluwe, then he has no choice.
The “debate” will happen Friday night, and it will be “moderated” by local radio personality Tom Bernard. Here’s hoping he keeps the chair in line.
