The Newest Phony Hissy-Fit

The right wing is having its most recent tantrum. Gwen Ifill, the moderator of the Veep debate, whom they have known about since sometime last summer, has written a book which will be released in January. This book, called The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama, is about various young, up-and-coming black leaders.

That automatically means she’s going to be biased, right?

Somehow she’ll pick questions that Biden can answer and Palin can’t. Sneaky gotcha questions like “What newspapers do you read?”

Nate Silver at the New Republic says the Obama campaign should offer to replace her.

I’m going to watch the debate with great interest. I keep thinking Palin can’t be this dumb. Surely she’s just flustered, rattled, out of her depth. She’s been cramming for this exam so surely she’ll at least hold her own.


Or it could be as cringe-worthy as her Katie Couric interviews. If it is bad/horrible/worse, then the right wing will have a tailor-made excuse already warmed up and ready to go.
