    We can't control what the media chooses to focus on. I don't know what you want us to do -- not have any panels with which you disagree?

        Kaili did a good job when Pfieiffer continued to provide heavily spun answers to the simple question about gay marriage and DOMA, IMO.

          you heard what you wanted to hear.

          In watching the video, what I heard was someone who ended every line of questioning with a snarky irony-laden "ooookay" and someone who said she was "tired of hearing about Lilly Ledbetter" and someone who seemed to not be aware that the President is not also the Governor of all 50 states and someone who seemed to be angry that this administration is not into the imposition of an imperial presidency.

          There was a bit more to the conversation than the question about gay marriage.

          She entered that conversation with an agenda, played it out, and the majority of the audience was obviously with her. That's why I'm not buying the story that the media completely misrepresented what seems to have gone on there.
