The Disgusting CNN Republican Debates in California

Okay. So you might remember my recent post titled "The Disgusting MSNBC Republican Debates". Well, tonight was CNN's turn to look like a completely fucking biased network. They held their Republican debates tonight at the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley. Anyways, as you would expect Ron Paul sat there most of the time while McMurder and Shit Romney battled about who was more insane. This thing was almost unbearable to watch. At one point, Ron Paul finally got to answer a question, and about 2 sentences in, Paul was cut off rather forcefully by Anderson "I'm just Ex-CIA that's cool right" Cooper. Cooper than assured Paul that he would get a chance to answer those topics in about "2 minutes". Guess what, I watched the rest of the thing and hmmm, Cooper never got back to that one. Nice try CNN. This was so blatantly obvious that you were 1) Blacking out Ron Paul and 2) Trying to re-create the ratings sensation that was the Clinton/Obama feud that we couldn't stop seeing in the media just a week or so ago. So fucking transparent.
Here's a little sunshine on an otherwise depressing and war mongering Dictator festival that was these debates: This is Ron Paul immediately after the long winded "he said/she said" that Mitt and McCain took 10 minutes to debate.

Edwards's Speech

Edwards To Exit Presidential Race

Raw Story

So, it seems that after a lackluster showing in the first few primary contests behind Clinton and Obama, John Edwards will be dropping out of the race. It looks like he's waiting until he gets down to New Orleans to make his announcement. A move which would seem appropriate given that this was the city where he started it all by announcing his campaign for President again.
Edwards will definitely not be out of the picture in this Democratic primary race, though. He has the unique opportunity to play "kingmaker" by endorsing one of the two remaining candidates
