CNN has lost what was left of my respect

I caught the 2nd half of the Republican presidential debate tonight. I could not believe the way that Ron Paul was treated by the questioners. They offered him no respect whatsoever, cutting him off before he could get half a reply out, and didn't even offer him the opportunity to speak much of the time. CNN was showcasing the McCain & Romney show, and a show it was. McCain was sitting there smug in the knowledge that those incumbent scoundrels are scheming to get him in next. His smug grin started to irk me just as bad as Shrub's leer does. I'm starting to get really scared that McCain will be our next president. Romney is a pretty boy and did really well with the Reagan question, but otherwise he's a loser. And imagine the races----McCain against a woman, or McCain against a black----plus the advantage of alliance with the cheaters running the voting machines----McCain's a shoo-in. Holy SHIT. It's going to take a revolution to turn this train around, and I am certain it won't be bloodless. The only plus note on this debate: Ron Paul got the biggest applause of the night when he brought the Iraq war duration question back around to the more fundamental question of when and how we go to war, with or without a declaration, and with or without justification? Whatever happened to real foreign policy debate? I want to think that there's hope, but tonight it appears to me that true debate is dead. Not happening. Not going to happen. CNN be damned. Politics is just a TV show.

I'm wondering what the hell is up with NPR and Huckabee. I don't get to listen to the news all that often, and today was the second time they interviewed him via cell phone. They really seem to be concentrating on him. I didn't catch last night's debate, but taped tonight's and will watch it this weekend. I am scared of McCain, too.

I haven't tuned into NPR in a long time.....but that is odd that they are focussing on him so much. He seems like a nice enough guy, but he's too christian for my taste---wants to bring us all back to his good old religion (no thanks). I'm sure he's avoiding saying anything about it now, but he's busted for what he said early in the campaign.

McCain
i think i am going to throw up alot if McCain becomes president.
I've gotten numerous letters from his office thanking me for my opinions on political issues that are exact opposite of his views.
yes, it will be a barf-o-rama in my little world if he gets the presidency.

Re: McCain
The media calls him "centrist" when he supports Shrub's neocon "policies". They say he is "popular with independents" but I don't know any of those independents. The media is parroting the same BS about him that they were saying 5 years ago, and I wish they would do some new surveys to see what independents actually are doing NOW. Like maybe discovering Ron Paul.
