Hype over substance.

Sign of the times, at Republican Convention the big networks have chosen to take a pass on McCain and Giuliani in favor of broadcasting Schwarzenegger.

Of course, Republican operatives are fuming, yet no mention by them of the networks enforcing equal time as doled out to the Dem Convention (i.e. they had to make a choice). They scream and carry on as if the networks should cover the entire show, all days, despite not doing the same for Democrats.

Of course, push comes to shove, network honchos are going to select more ratings-friendly Arnold over Rudy or John. I would rather see the latter, but I understand the decision. The Republicans should simply realize & accept that this can happen when you have movie stars run for office.
