How much more obvious can the writers at MSNBC get? I understand that they don’t like Ron Paul over there but they are out of control.
I just checked out the “Get your post-caucus spin now” story on their website’s main page. It lists how a win or lose today in Iowa will effect each candidate. Well, almost each candidate. On the republican side, they tell us the story about how great it would be for Huckabee to do well and how Romney would be hurt if he does poorly (duh). They talk about McCain and Thompson (who is rumored to drop out of the race as early as tomorrow if things go bad in Iowa). And they talk about the big hit Rudy would take if he loses to Ron Paul.
Each candidate is given their own section with specific analysis except for Ron Paul. What gives? Wouldn’t it be less obvious to give him a bit of attention and play down a victory? Apparently Chuck Todd (the writer of this pile of journalistic crap) is unable to be so subtle. He simply left Paul off the article. Okay, we get it, the media jerks don’t want him to win. Or maybe they are jealous of all the internet attention Paul gets and don’t like us average Americans having our own opinions. I can’t wait to see what they will write if Paul does well or even wins in Iowa.
Here is my prediction… If Paul wins today in Iowa, the story will be that Iowa does not really represent the nation and has little influence on the overall campaign.
