    Thanks Conner of Austin, TX. Looks like CNN slipped up and allowed your comment to get through about Ron Paul!

    CNN- Fred Thompson got 4 VOTES, yet your article on this race stated that he got 4 PERCENT! Quite a discrepancy, don't you think!? What the hell, don't you people over in Ted Turner land proofread? News FLASH: The paper in Arlington, VA stated today (Mon. the 4th) that RON PAUL got a convincing SECOND place in Maine with 35%, beating golden boy McCain who had 12%. I don't see that on the 'ol TICKER! Instead CNN reports on the REALLY IMPORTANT NEWS: Hillary bawls on cue, women will vote Hillary, Obama is still black, and Franken-Dole writes a letter to Rush Pillpopper. Oh, and the front page of CNN- "Top GOP Contenders fight it out," with Huck, Mitt, and Mc's pictures- no image of Ron Paul DESPITE the fact he's had more popular votes than the Huck so far in this race. CNN- you're a bunch of fascists! Watch the old movie NETWORK and you'll understand what's going on here. 'Tis a sad day that REAL news is posted by common folk in these 'comment' sections of your site, rather than by your so-called "journalists." Do what you will CNN- the REVOLUTION doesn't end with Ron Paul, it's only just begun.
