The CNN Republican Debate, i.e. Let's Not Let Ron Paul Get A Word In

So, did anyone else watch this travesty?

Have I mentioned yet that I'm a Ron Paul supporter? Well, I am. I think he's the only candidate who actually seems honest and doesn't seem to be in anyone's pocket, and-guess what? He thinks we should FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION. What a wacky idea for AMERICANS. I could go on about why I love Dr. Paul, but I won't. That's not the topic here.

The topic is the sham of a debate that CNN held tonight. Correct me if I'm wrong, but are there not Republican candidates? Then why did they do their damndest to make it seem like only Romney and McCain are running?

Anderson Cooper not only blatantly ignored Ron (and Huckabee, for that matter) for most of the debate, he even went so far as to interrupt him and rudely cut him off. In a "debate" where Romney and McCain blathered inanely and took schoolgirl bickering to a whole new level for minutes on end, he actually had the audacity to cut Ron off after he spoke for 9 FUCKING SECONDS.

I'm not even joking.

At one point he actually stumbled all over himself trying to shut Ron up, babbling and stuttering about how "We're going to have -- I promise you we're going to have -- you're going to have another opportunity to do that. I promise you, coming up in like two minutes or two questions."

Of course, it was neither 2 questions nor two minutes before they got back to Dr. Paul.

I was livid.

LIVID, I tell you.

It was the most blatant case of censoring somebody that I've ever seen on national tv. It seems they were scared to let the man talk. Of course, when he did talk, he owned the floor and got quite a bit of applause. I particularly liked when he called Romney and McCain "silly" for arguing like old women over technicalities with an issue they both agreed on.

I've repeatedly tried to e-mail a complaint to CNN, but strangely, my e-mail keeps sending it back saying it's "undeliverable". Evidently CNN doesn't care for negative opinions of their debates.

Uhg.

CNN, you suck.

The media always focuses on the front runners! It is ridiculous.

I am a huge Paul fan. I saw you comment on Random Mommy & had to come and give you props.
