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.

    And since when has any conflict of interest regarding Obama and his associates bothered the left? Let’s see what comes to mind…

    1) Obama’s association with William Ayers, who according to his own book participated in bombing New York City Police Headquarters, the Capital Building, and the Pentagon (in that order, I believe).

    2) Former Fannie Mae Chairman and CEO Franklin Raines, who resigned under the OFHEO’s investigation of “accounting irregularities” (to put it nicely) and a major player in Fannie Mae’s collapse is now “taking calls” (in the Washington Post’s mild terminology) from Obama regarding housing and economic issues.

    3) Jim Johnson, another former Fannie Mac CEO, served on (some sources say he headed) Obama’s VP search committee until he had to step down under investigation of more “accounting irregularities.”

    4) Did I mention that Obama received significant campaign contributions from both Fannie and Freddie Mac? Hmm.

    With the presence of an anti-American terrorist and two scandal-ridden financial/economic advisors on Obama’s roster completely ignored, why would anyone point out that the selection of Gwen Ifill as debate moderator is a conflict of interest? She’s only writing a book titled Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama, set to be released on January 20, 2009. That’s the date of the next presidential inauguration, in case it didn’t strike a bell. “Age of Obama?” Sure, that’s impartial. So free of bias that she didn’t even mention that she was writing the book when she was interviewed as a potential moderator. And who even read Ifill’s glowing account of the Obama family in Essence magazine?

    The choice is an affront to intelligent Americans, but then again, so is nearly everything else one sees and hears from the left these days.
