Those wonderful CNN debate questions.

Apparently CNN looks back at Bernard Shaw's "what would you do if your wife was assaulted" Presidential debate question to Michael Dukakis in 1988 with nostalgia for the fuss it stirred up.

Soledad "I was removed from AMERICAN MORNING for low ratings" O'Brien asked a whopper of a "faith and values" question Monday night.  John Edwards was the lucky Presidential candidate forced to answer it.

The question was: "What is the biggest sin you've ever committed?"

Can you say "intrusive"?  Can you say "inane"?

Do we have to tolerate dumb "gotcha" questions just so CNN can get a few extra ratings points (by assuming that all religious people are busybodies who just have to know the exact sins candidates for the Highest Office in the Land commit)?

Time Warner obviously will keep throwing the first stone at aspiring Presidential sinners for the next year and a half--without any worrisome thoughts about corporate hypocrisy.
