Comments: CNN's YouTube Republican Debate: The Shenanigans Continue

I just can't get my shorts all bunched up over this election cycle. I'm trying, but I just don't f-e-e-l it for any of the candidates.

Oh, problem solved, I'm voting for Mike Gravel.

This morning my local radio guys were inviting each other to noodle through another intriguing hypothetical about dem debates. Try to imagine an "undecided dem voter" asking something like this: Why is it all you guys seem to care so much more about the "civil liberties" of committed terrorists, than about the lives of innocent American citizens who committed no graver offence than simply showing up for work before nine in the morning?

Equally valid. Equally on-topic. Equally leading. But such a question would never get through on the donk side of things. The questioner would be thrown out of the studio, Hillary would squawk about nasty men being mean to her, a zillion and one liberal activists would demand the resignation of a zillion and one conservative operatives, with written apologies as well, and half of those & probably more would actually be forthcoming.

Before the week was out we'd be hearing from over a hundred "experts," probably double that, about how it IS possible to be "patriotic" and still champion the civil rights of terrorists because "we are better than that."

But with things as they are, we'll just hear about these plants from bloggers like Malkin, and you and me, for a couple days or so and then all will be forgotten.

what difference does it make? the questions were perfectly valid. and none of the candidates seemed to balk at them.

why should the political preference of the questioner matter?

Can you imagine the hullabaloo had it been Repub plants at a Dem debate? LOL. Oye Vey the hypocrisy.

well really, what's the big deal? you had questions about abortion and the role of gays in the republican party. any true "republican" should be able to knock those two out of the park. say you're totally against abortion, you hate it, it's killing people.

and say "well i'll accept their support but not their lifestyle."

isn't that what the base wants to hear? no fags and no babykillers?
