JUST DID, Here is what I sent the editor of Newsmax!

Dear Newsmax,

I am writng this e-mail to inform you that I am greatly disappointed in your choice of selecting Donald Trump to moderate the Republican Presidential primary debate to be held in Iowa on December 27th. This selection displays a great lack of discernment for your news organzation. Donald Trump appears to have little to no experience as being a "moderator." Furthermore, he has already displayed a strong bias and sincer lack of lack of professionalism as he has openly made extremely disrespectful statements towards two of the presidential candidates who were invited to particate. Provided are two statements released by Donald Trump in the wake of Mr. Jon Huntsman and Dr. Ron Paul declining to participate.

"As I said in the past and will reiterate again, Ron Paul has a zero chance of winning either the nomination or the presidency," Trump said in a statement in response to Paul, adding, "my poll numbers were substantially higher than any of his poll numbers, at any time."

"Few people take Ron Paul seriously and many of his views and presentation make him a clown-like candidate," he said. "I am glad he and Jon Huntsman, who has inconsequential poll numbers or a chance of winning, will not be attending the debate and wasting the time of the viewers who are trying very hard to make a very important decision."

These statements are further evidence that the level of political discourse in America continues to sink to new low. By selecting a reality television celebrity (on the same level of seriousness as Kim Kardashian) to moderate a presidential debate is of the poorest taste. The candidates who are seeking the highest office is in the land deserve better, and so do the American people. As a result of your selection, and the statements quoted above, I no longer plan to tune in to this debate unless you appoint a new moderator.

With sincere dissappointment and disgust,

-1st Lieutenant Philip D. Olson, United States Air Force.

Principle over Party!
