  • Because MSNBC, CNN, ABC. NBC, CBS, etc. Are ANY different? Ignorance appears to be bliss for ball and kerp.

  • Way to keep an open mind. IT's a list of candidates for crying out loud. I'm sure you'll find them listed on MSNBC, oh wait no you won't. You will find the 5 they choose to target though. That's more than indicative of the dozens that are running right? Please.

  • It's a simple list. No muss, no fuss. The only one I was able to find that seems marginally comprehensive.
