CNN/YouTube Debate

CNN has, in its infinite wisdom, bent over and pledged not to ask the Republicans any hard questions — er, “gotcha” questions — during the upcoming YouTube debate.

In other words, no firefighers asking Rudy why they didn’t have the radios he was supposed to get them, and above all, no questions about teh gay.


You may recall that, when the debate was proposed last summer, only John McCain and Ron Paul agreed to participate.

What do you think happened in the intervening few months? Would anyone be really surprised if CNN went to the other candidates, hat in hand and said, “okay, please … we promise to only ask questions about how much you love God, America, and puppies!!”

I’m sure it was a tough sell.
