    16 minutes of the show. That's nearly one third of the total show. I'd hate to see what constitutes bad behavior. Barack handled himself very well, once again.

    I can't wait until McCain gets the same grilling about his associations with Hagee and Falwell, but then again, Obama is held to a very different standard, isn't he?

      until the voters are completely desensitized to the scary boogey man (which appears to be happening).

    •  Fair and balanced? Not so much (0+ / 0-)

      >I can't wait until McCain gets the same grilling about his associations with Hagee and Falwell ...

      Um, from whom? Not the political punditocracy.

      See Frank Rich's column in today's Times.

        which both emphasize the unequal way in which Barack is treated due to his associations with "scary, black people".

        I guess we've already become desensitized to raving lunatic white evangelical preachers who want to execute homosexuals and think that damnation befalls those who deny the "holy spirit", when, in and of itself that sentiment seems like a denial of any spirit I know of.

        He's got a long row to hoe and if people think that racism ends when you get your journalism degree, think again.
