Gwen Ifill – Obama Disciple

The Vice-Presidential Debate is this Thursday between Gov. Sarah Palin and Sen. Joe Biden, and moderated by Gwen Ifill.  While it is common knowledge that most members of the media are in the tank for Obama, some are more obvious about it than others.  Gwen Ifill falls in the Chris Matthews/Keith Olbermann camp.  Michelle Malkin chronicles multiple examples of her open bias for Obama, including a book that she has written entitled “Breakthrough — Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.”  Excuse me?  Here is Ifill talking about her book, by way of GatewayPundit:

She also gave this extremely well-balanced review of Sarah Palin’s speech.  Jim Lehrer even looks uncomfortable after her “review”. 

Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t detect a hint of bias there.  (As Rush would say, for those of you in Rio Linda, that’s a bit of Sarcasm).  In reality, it is so obvious that she is in the tank for Obama, that she shouldn’t have even been considered as a moderator for Thursday’s debate. 

Why on earth did the McCain camp consent to having her as the moderator?  Why do Republican Presidential Candidates always acquiesce to playing by the Democrat’s rules?  Why isn’t there a debate moderated by Chris Wallace, Britt Hume, or, if we’re going to go the Gwen Ifill route, Sean Hannity or Rush Limbaugh? 

Thursday night, Palin should not just answer the questions, but challenge the premise of any questions that are obviously biased.  It is time that our candidates stood up to the Drive-By Media, instead of cowering to them because they are journalists.  McCain is realizing that his love-affair with the media is over, and he and Sarah should do everything they can to combat them, because at this point, they are nothing more than disciples of Obama.
