Ace on the Republican Debate.

Apparently, CNN is in rare form:

CNN supposedly picked "likely Republican voters" -- both actual Republicans and right-leaning indepedents -- to ask the candidates questions.

Let's see how scorchingly liberal the questions are.

Off to a good start -- a woman who lost her husband brother to the war wants to know how to get us out of Iraq.

I'm so surprised CNN found this questioner!

Why, you'd think liberals had some sort of premeditated strategy to put forward victims to push their policies or something!

More! Environmentalism, prescription drug subsidies, and now, from the affiliate's handpicked (liberal) blogger, a question as to whether or not to install a Canadian style single-payer national health care system!

Wow! These "likely Republican voters" sure are reflecting my concerns and interests!

I'm glad I skipped the debate. Maybe someone will bait Fred! into another mini video tomorrow, which would at least liven things up a bit.

I caught part of it. I agree with you on the baited liberal pablum questions. CNN sucks.

Since when is it liberal to ask when a war that's killing off our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters?

I think it's a rather important question to ask, since war typically involves sacrifices, and people who are asked to sacrifice might like, you know, what to know how long they have to bleed.

Is anyone in your family actually, like, fighting in this war?

dejah, you are so full of it!

I watched the debate, I watch all of them for BOTH parties, just as I watch BOTH the DNC and GOP Conventions.

The woman that stood up and asked the question that night and started her question by saying a her brother had been killed in the war then went on to ask her question was either a plant by the DNC or Yesssss a liberal.

Liberals do not realize that war is about killing on both sides and there is nothing that can be done about that. But Conservatives know that there is only Peace through war. We only pray that the peace will last as long as possible.

I know where I stand and that is along side our awesome military. Liberals seem to have forfotten the first attack on the World Trade Center, the USS Cole, 9-11 and many, many other attacks to many to mention here and all done by the followers of Islam. ......terrorists.

Liberals USE the death of the troops to push their agenda to cut and run. Conservatives never use the death of one single soldier to push any agenda. We mourn their deaths but we also celebrate their lives and honor them as true American Heroes.

When a liberal has to use the deaths of soldiers they dishonor his/her service to our country and that is a fast. Learn it, own it and shame on you dejah for not getting it.

Do I have a member of our family serving now in the military? Or a friend in the military? Yes I do, several and I am proud of each one of them and I would never dishonor their service like a liberal would. Liberals are the enemy within, they aid the enemy with their spew of saying things like kill your officers signs they hold up at anti-war rallies.

LIberals should get down on their knees and thank God for our military and for all of America's finest for all they do each day.

dejah your comment......"you know, what to know how long they have to bleed. "....is absolutely disgusting!!!!

When's the last time CNN had a military family member who actually SUPPORTED the war on the air?

*crickets chirping*

Statistically, they are far more numerous that those who don't support the war, yet miraculously every time they air an "in-depth look at how military families feel" we see some non-representative "military family member" who... Oooo! surprise surprise! AGREES WITH CNN!

Hey, I know some military family members don't support the war, and I'm perfectly happy to let them say their piece. But don't you find it just a little suspicious that CNN can never seem to find any of the vast MAJORITY of us who do when camera time rolls around?

Got bias? CNN does.

"Dejah"--as in, "deja vu"? Sorry, Doll: Iraq isn't Vietnam. (Nor was El Salvador, for that matter, though I suspect a lot of your friends have a hard-on for another "defeat.")

Since the e-mail address you gave me was fake, I'll ask you publicly what I tried to ask you in private: do YOU have any family members or friends serving in Iraq (or even Afghanistan)?

I want to know. But I think I already do.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
