    "In the 2008 election, we took sides, straight and simple, particularly with regard to the vice presidential race. I don't know that we played a decisive role in that campaign, and I'm not saying the better side lost. What I am saying is that we simply didn't hold Joe Biden to the same standard as Sarah Palin, and for me, the real loser in this sordid tale is my chosen profession." Carl Cannon - Long Time WH Reporter. LINK


    Biden with gaff after gaff, after gaff got a pass. Read the link.

    Okay, so a rightwing mouthpiece confesses for all the media? Sounds a little fishy, to say the least...

    GASP! I would never have guessed!

    Of course there's bias. Anyone with one eye and a brain knows it.

    Cannon's not right wing. AND he's being quoted directly. If he didn't say it, I imagine he'd deny it.

    Okay, you guys are right. The media was so tough on Sara Palin. Just look at how Katie Couric, a serious journalist, asks these real tough questions of former Gov. Palin:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nokTjEdaUGg]YouTube - Palin On Foreign Policy[/ame]

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9go38MgZ4w8]YouTube - Palin: I Read All the News[/ame]

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txfqWzGMgmY&feature=related]YouTube - Sarah Palin Talks Bailout Proposal[/ame]

    And here she is talking war strategy and lying about air raids in Afghanistan killing innocent civilians:[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ICH77bufCe0]YouTube - Palin / Biden debate Afghanistan @ Washington University[/ame]

    Now, I'm not saying ol'Joe Biden is without flaw and can make a real ass out of himself, but really? Sarah Palin is an idiot. Joe can be an idiot, but he has had a very successful political career. He can't be that stupid. He also wasn't a media sensation.

    The things that Fox news has reported and said about Barack Obama are far worse than anything the so-called "liberal" media has ever said or reported about Sarah Palin. Even Fox news reported this about Sara Palin:[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uvj-Xr0irhE]YouTube - FNC's Liz Trotta Slams Sarah Palin![/ame] calling her inarticulate and under-educated! And that she has only encouraged the media with her superficiality and false-image when really she has simply used her "good looks and gender" to get ahead in the political arena. Here is Sean Hannity really being tough on Sarah Palin and she still comes across as an idiot! [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vU90Z6VBEk0]YouTube - Sarah Palin Interview with Sean Hannity -- Alaska Governor Speaks with FOX News Channel [1/2][/ame]

    She fed the fodder folks. Get over your poster child for Down's Syndrome.
