ST. PAUL (CNN) - The people closest to John McCain are beginning to appear on the podium as we approach prime time and the Arizona senator's acceptance speech. Sen. Lindsey Graham, who has been there since the beginning, turns the subject to Iraq and the surge. The Iraq war overwhelmingly unpopular in the country - but largely supported in this room of GOP activists.

    CNN, are you drowning out free speech as well as the riot police in St. Louis? What's with all of the "Comments have been closed" for most of these articles, after 5, 10, 15 posts? In some cases less than 5 - and in one case, one post! Get real! This country is going down the tubes.

    Summing up the GOP convention: Packed with nastiness and falsehood. Very empty on substance.
