McCain going soft on Ifill
By going soft on Gwen Ifill, John McCain has missed an opportunity to energize his base. Ifill, who is moderating tonight’s VP debate, is writing a book titled in part, “…the age of Obama.” Set to be released on Inauguration Day, Ifill clearly has a vested interest in one of these candidates being sworn in when her book hits the shelves.
Rather than demand a change in moderator, McCain has only gone so far as to say “Frankly, I wish they had picked a moderator that isn’t writing a book favorable to Barack Obama. … But I have to have confidence that Gwen Ifill will handle this as the professional journalist that she is. …
“Life isn’t fair.”
Is that going to be his response when he loses this election because he’s too afraid to hit back at the liberal bias that’s undermining his chances to win?
