Pledge of Allegience Story discussion closed?
At risk of getting in trouble with moderators, I'm unclear why the comments to the "McCain's Pledge of Allegience Story from the POW camp" got removed.
It looks like a pro-McCain political thread got posted by a senior member, and once comments critical of McCain were posted they were deleted and the thread closed.
If we're going to have a no-politics rule it seems like the thread itself should be deleted, not just the dissenting posts.
Not trying to start a political flamewar here - but this feels like moderators implicitly pushing the pro McCain line in contravention to the general no-politics rules here.
