Why am I not surprised? Talk about someone in the tank for Obama. Gwen Ifill! How in the name of all that’s holy does someone like Gwen Ifill achieve a position like this? Are there no moderators out there who aren’t busy? I want Charlie Rose. She should disqualify herself. Is this what we have come to? There is no personal accountability? What I am pleasantly surprised at is that Yahoo! printed this story, and with their willing accomplices at the Politico they are both in high gear defending her as a choice. These are the same liberals who scream bias from any soap box they can mount. These are the same liberals constantly insisting that a white jury is de facto bias in a trial of a minority. Race aside, yes, this is classic conflict of interest. Still, I’ll have to do some research to see if Gwen applauded the verdict at the first OJ trial. I wouldn’t be surprised.
Gwen Ifill, moderator of Thursday’s VP debate, has a new book about Obama and the politics of race. » No secret
