You Gotta Get (Get) That (That) Dirt Off Your Shoulder

If you’ve been roaming around the political blogosphere, you probably noticed quite a firestorm about ABC’s Democratic Debate that took place Wednesday night.Bear witness to perhaps the coolest subliminal cultural reference in the history of American politics. Then on Thursday Obama channeled Jay-Z while responding to the debate travesty: It’s good to see Obama take this issue head on. The media should not abdicate its responsibility to discuss issues that are actually important to voters. According to Gallup, the five most important issues to voters, in order, are: 1. The economy 2. Iraq 3. Healthcare 4. Fuel prices 5. Illegal immigration.
ABC News should be ashamed it took them more than 40 minutes to even begin to discuss those issues, and then more ashamed that they never discussed them in a substantive or enlightening way.
It is time for us, as Americans, to take the challenge that Obama speaks of. We must decide to make the difference that is best for all Americans, for all the world!!!
It is time for Obama!!!Yes. We. Can!!!

I agree with you...ABC did an awful job and should be ashamed! I told them so by writing an email to the ABC Nightly News email link. I also told them that I will no longer turn to ABC for my nightly news that features Charles Gibson!
