The headline's a bit misleading, sure, but this sounds like it'll be just as interesting.

Grady High School's award-winning Speech and Debate Team is hosting "The Final Showdown," a U.S. presidential debate tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the school's Main Theatre. Seniors Mike Robinson and Demarius Wilson will portray John McCain and Barack Obama and debate healthcare, the economy, foreign policy and other issues. The fundraising event will be moderated by members of the press and Emory University's Barkley Forum. Students and audience members will be able to pose questions to the "candidates."

Can't make it out to the event? No worries, you can watch the debate from home — the team will streamcast it live on its website here.

A chili dinner will be offered at 6 p.m. in the high school cafeteria. Tickets cost $12 and can be purchased at the door or online here.
