    Seems like a bit of a premature and arbitrary decision by NBC to me. It's the primaries, not the actual election.

    As if Kucinich has a chance anyway ... :rofl:

    I think that's NBC's point. The latest poll has Kucinich at one percent. He's had his chance to affect voters in previous debates and people think he's goofy. So why should he take time from candidates who actually have a shot? Here's the poll: http://www.pollingreport.com/wh08dem.htm. What I object to is the media driven candidate selection process. Who said that any of the Republicans or Democrats now before the nation should be candidates? The candidates themselves? Yes, but primarily it was the media that selected them as candidates. Who anointed the media as selector of the next President? How did it come to this? What is Obama other than an inexperienced creation of the media? Why is it no longer the case that we elect delegates to the political party conventions, and then they select the candidates? No one voted for the media. Why does it get to select the candidates?

    Dennis will have to apologize to Muslims off-camera, I guess.

    He lost the appeal.
