    Overlooked or Simply Not Caught by Liberal Media?

    Debates have become relegated to the “pre-show” for the liberal media and pundits to give their “expert” review on how the candidates fared. We anticipate their ultimate goal - find a way to justify handing the victory to their favored candidates. They may take a myriad of paths to ultimately arrive at their predetermined destination. If they feel their candidate was stronger in connecting with the voters, then the facts don’t seem to matter. However, if they feel their candidate had a stronger grasp on facts then we, the viewer, are barraged with facts and details ad nausea.

    This bias was seen by media comments made immediately following the Vice Presidential debate. It was noted that Biden was incredibly gracious to Palin in that he did not expose the fact she misidentified the general from Afghanistan. Such a comment was made with the obvious attempt to define Biden as the more knowledgeable of the two candidates.

    My question is why the media didn’t instead respond with how gracious Palin was to not expose the fact that Joe Biden, a sitting U.S. Senator of 36 years did not even know which article of the Constitution defines the authority of the Executive Branch. I’m sorry but let’s compare. Not necessarily getting the name of a particular general correct might be of some concern; however, not knowing the most basic details of our Constitution should automatically disqualify you from serving as Vice President of the United States.

    That irritated me, too. And the 3 lengthy interviews Palin gave in one week, while Biden got away with none. And no one seems to mind the gotcha questions of Couric and Gibson nor play the gotcha game with Biden in kind.

    The process has been grossly imbalanced. With the media so heavily biased, controlling information to the public (and the growing trend of presenting opinion as news and interpreting every news item for the non-discerning public) it has become nearly impossible to get equal play of each candidate's record, positions, attempts at spin, and mistakes.

    We are seeing the machine fine-tuned as never before, and the greatest masters of deceptions of our time at work.

    Bush headed the finest tuned machine of all time in his two completely undeserved victories. Both of them were stolen illegally. Now our country is reaping the "benefits" of Bush's illegal elections.

    Off topic rant aside, remember, Biden told Katie Couric that FDR was on TV, as president, in 1929, and she just blinked. Don't tell me 9/10 of the media ain't trying to pull the election for the zero.

    Ah, a personal attack.
    Here's a tip: if you are going to simply offer a juvenile response such as this, be sure that you know how to spell the word.

    This assumes that Gov. Palin knew the difference. I don't think she did.

    Speaking of shocking ignorance ... How long will we continue to hear these silly statements that are demonstrably untrue? Are you guys so desperate you can't even be truthful about the facts? Bush has been overall a fairly poor president, but he was legally elected twice.

    Nothing new here; the delusions are getting more irrational and frequent since Palin came on the scene.

    The liberals are just not as subtle with the tantrums as they used to be 'cause they are getting desperate that their socialist side is becoming blatantly obvious. PANIC--PANIC--PANIC!!!
