More Than a Little

I am more than a little frustrated with MSM, particularly CNN. CNN invites comments on the Ticker, their political blog, BUT comments are moderated and good luck getting a thoughtful comment approved. In the meantime, any crackpot who wants to take a shot gets their comment posted. So on the question of a GOP debate, there are lots of "give up" comments, lots of "support McCain" comments and not a few Ron Paul type comments. A comment like the following was (who knows why) not approved:
I would very much like to see a debate between the remaining Republican candidates. John McCain does not have the nomination wrapped up and it disenfranchises voters when we are told we must rally around the presumptive candidate. It is a disservice to the other candidates that they are expected to drop out of the race at this point.

Mike Huckabee has won primaries and caucuses in states that Republicans must win to take the national election and was second by the narrowest of margins in South Carolina, Missouri, Washington and Oklahoma. Governor Huckabee would most likely have won SC by an overwhelming margin but for the presence of Fred Thompson, who dropped out the next day. More people have voted against Senator McCain than those who have voted for him. That is telling. The voters deserve to be allowed to make their own choice without pressure from the national party or from the media.

Let the debate happen!

I thought it was a reasonable comment ... CNN did not approve it.
