Ever since Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders debated tax reform two years ago, I’ve been itching for more debates like it. Sanders was totally outmatched going up against Cruz and it was glorious to watch. Is another debate coming?

On Monday, actress/activist Alyssa Milano challenged Senator Ted Cruz to a debate “on the gun issue and many other issues that include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

It’s hard to say whether she really expected him to respond to this challenge, given she followed up her challenge with the suggestion of live-streaming their discussion “so the American people can hear [his] bulls**t” firsthand. PJ Media’s managing editor was so excited she declared she’d be willing to pay money to see it happen. Late Monday night, her wish came true, because Senator Cruz accepted the challenge.

“I’d be happy to sit down & visit next week about uniting to stop gun violence & about the Constitution,” Cruz tweeted. “If we can have a civil & positive conversation,” he added.

On Tuesday afternoon, Milano live-streamed her call to Ted Cruz’s office to schedule their meeting.

Girl, you have no idea what you just got yourself into.

I can’t wait to watch this.
