Four days after the Democratic debate in Charleston, S.C,. more than 400 questions directed to the GOP presidential field have been uploaded on YouTube -- targeted at Republicans scheduled to get their turn at videopopulism on Sept. 17.
But so far, only Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) and Rep. Ron Paul (Tex.) have agreed to participate in the debate, co-hosted by Republican Party of Florida in St. Petersburg.
"Aside from those two candidates, we haven't heard from anyone else," said Sam Feist of CNN, who's co-sponsoring the debate with the popular videosharing site.
Aww....whassamatter, Republicans? Afraid to stand up to the scrutiny of non-loyalty oath-signed crowds? Can't stand to answer for all the misdeeds of the rubberstamp Republican majority for the first five years of the Bush Administration? Don't want to justify your continuing loyalty to party over country? Afraid to have to answer to the grieving mother of a fallen soldier?
Hmmm....didn't stop the RNC from encouraging their mailing list to send in questions for the Democratic candidates, did it?
