“Frankly, I wish they had picked a moderator that isn’t writing a book favorable to Barack Obama — let's face it," McCain said on "Fox & Friends." "But I have to have confidence that Gwen Ifill will handle this as the professional journalist that she is. ...

GOP cries foul...

Conservatives were outraged Wednesday at revelations that Gwen Ifill, the moderator for Thursday's vice-presidential debate between Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Gov. Sarah Palin, is writing a book to be published on Inauguration Day titled "The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama."

'Brilliant' Ifill Cousin Scours Palin As 'Offensive to Black Women'...

Here are more signs Sarah Palin could face an uphill battle with PBS host Gwen Ifill. Professor Sherrilyn Ifill of the University of Maryland Law School, whom Gwen Ifill has lauded as "my brilliant baby cousin," has written that black women are not buying Sarah Palin’s "false claims to feminism" and is portrayed as too perfect: "when women who are privileged present as though they have it all together, it’s offensive to black women."

I think real intelligent people believe she will do a good job, as is her reputation. I think this is just laying the groundwork for the excuse making that will follow a possible disasterous performance by Palin.
