Blown Ifill

Gwen Ifill once again displays her keen journalistic acumen:

During the vice presidential debate on Thursday, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin announced that she “may not answer the questions that either the moderator or you want to hear.” In fact, “On at least 10 occasions, Palin gave answers that were nonspecific, completely generic, pivoted away from the question at hand, or simply ignored it.” On NBC’s Meet The Press today, debate moderator Gwen Ifill said that Palin “more than ignored” her questions. “Blew me off I think is the technical term,” said Ifill.

No kidding, Gwen.  Gee, it’s too bad you weren’t in any position to force her back on topic.  I mean, it’s not like you were the moderator or anything.  Oh, wait…

    I believe McCain camp got the debate rules structured so that the moderator was limited on what follow-ups could be asked.

    She couldn’t even “remind” Palin of the original question?

    But you’re right that the debate rules were crap. Team Obama totally blew it there.
