We all enjoy a good debate from time to time, and we certainly understand why a network would want to spend more time partying with Little Marco, Big Donald, and the rest of the GOP gang. However, CNN’s behavior is getting out of control. While it’s already set to simulcast the Democratic debate hosted by Univision News and the Washington Post on Wednesday, then hold its own GOP debate on Thursday, the network just announced that it’s invited the Democratic candidates to a town hall in Ohio on Sunday night, too. Hillary Clinton has already confirmed that she’ll be at the March 13 chat with Jake Tapper, and Bernie Sanders will likely do the same. The March 15 primaries are definitely important, but anyone who can’t tell the difference between Clinton and Sanders at this point needs to take a long, hard look the mirror — asking the Democratic candidates the same set of questions four times in eight days isn’t the answer.
