Am I the only one who finds this totally unbelievable? They clearly report the correct results at the bottom, but omit Dr. Paul’s picture at the top!

Did anyone else watch both the first and second airings of last Thursday’s Republican debate? I DVR’d the first airing, but since it went a few minutes over I missed the final few minutes. The schedule didn’t show a re-airing, but after the Hannity & Colmes post-debate show wrapped up at eleven (CST) the debate started again. So, I just recorded the next 3 hours of programming and went to bed.
Here comes the interesting part…
I wanted to see Dr. Paul’s response to the electability question again. (You can watch it Here!) I watched at first on the fastest fast-forward speed stopping only to watch Dr. Paul’s answers. After several ‘re-watchings’, I began to think that I was hearing the same thing twice. At the 1:14 mark of the debate John McCain, concluding his response, says, “…we would be talking about more tax cuts today.” The moderator then asks Dr. Paul if he supports a government program to help stimulate the economy.
I thought to myself, “hmmmm, didn’t I hear that earlier in the debate?”
So, I started it again, from the beginning. Sure enough, fourteen minutes in I get the same conclusion from McCain, and the same question from the moderator. I finally concluded that the segment starting 1:04 and ending at 1:21 is a replay of the first 17 minutes of questioning. The segment even started and ended in the middle of the candidates’ responses.
Why haven’t I seen more about this?
Does anyone care?
The idea that one would compromise their religious ethics for political reasons is abhorrent. If one believes in God, will God not protect those who believe in him whoever is president? Being that many Christians who support Giuliani site his role as a war time leader, by taking this stand Robertson is making it perfectly clear that he puts his faith in man before God.
Idaho Senator Larry Craig soliciting an airport security officer for gay sex is just the latest in an increasingly long line of right-wing homosexual outings.
After being shocked about accusations that Mark Foley was pursuing young congressional pages, we barely had time to recover when we were hit with stories of drug use and homosexual liaisons involving, extreme right-wing fundamentalist minister and adviser to President Bush, Ted Haggard. Not to be outdone, Craig manages to get caught soliciting sex in a public restroom.
At first glance this just seems like a series of unfortunate events. But let’s look a little deeper. Did most of the bad apples just happen to fall off of the cart in the last year, or is this just the “real” Republican agenda being exposed? Maybe the real Republican agenda is not to oppose homosexuality, just homosexual marriage. They don’t want to replace John and Mary with John and Barry, they just want to see John and Barry wrestle in their gladiator costumes.
Maybe that’s why high school and college wrestling is so popular in red states.
My theory is that they want to keep gay sex dirty, nasty, and filthy. They fear that by allowing gay marriage, gay sex would become the same boring wake her/him up in the middle of the night 45 seconds of ecstasy that heterosexual sex becomes after marriage.
So give the Republicans a break, they just want to keep hot man on man on man on boy action alive for them to enjoy.
