CNN YouTube Idiocy

Turns out some of the questions from "Average" Americans on the CNN Republican Youtube debate were really questions from the Hillary and Edwards camp. Two of the "Average" Americans posting were campaign workers for the Hillary and Edwards teams. A third "average" American has a website up supporting Obama.

Hmmm. And CNN had no idea. Funny how not one Rudy or Romney campaign worker got to ask a question at the CNN Democrat debate. Just a coincidence I'm sure. This whole liberal media bias is just a figment of my imagination. The Democrats were smart when they refused to debate on Fox. If Republicans were smart (which obviously they aren't) they'd refuse to debate on CNN.

Even putting aside the liberal smear machine, this whole notion of Youtube debates is ridiculous. I don't really give a rat's ass what "average" Americans have to say. Average Americans can't name even one of their Senators. Why in the world would their opinion matter in deciding anything? Average Americans spend weeks on end watching Who Wants To Marry A Millionaire Bachelor who Dances With Stars. Thanks, but I don't think we need your input on this one.

I guess the whole premise is that these are undecided voters asking the candidates poignant questions and using their answers to make an informed decision. Bullshit. People who take the time and trouble to make a video know fully well who they support. These are nothing but attempts to embarrass the candidates or more likely get on TV.

The true undecided voters are the ones who have no idea there is an election going on. They will be undecided until about October 25th, 2008. And then they will make a decision based on some random issue like one guy's tie looks cooler than the other's.
