An Ear-Full for Ifill ...

The presidential debate commission certainly deserves our scorn, but I am still amazed that the McCain campaign -- apparently -- didn't know about Ifill's forthcoming pro-Obama book.  How is that possible?

Speaking of which, I'm much more concerned about her conflict of interest than about her otherwise liberal bias. 

Conservatives can almost always assume they will be debating both their opponent and the moderator -- so having a liberal moderator doesn't really surprise me.  More concerning, however, is the fact that she stands to gain financially by Obama winning.

Perhaps Ifill should have passed on this opportunity?  This is utterly ridiculous -- and would not be tolerated if the situation were reversed and a conservative moderator (yeah, right!) had been booked ...
