Conservatives are in an uproar over Gwen Ifill, tonight's moderator in the vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin. They say that Ifill's ability to be fair and impartial is compromised because she has a book coming out in January about Barack Obama. The charge is nonsense. Ifill is a seasoned professional who is able to set aside her personal opinions and beliefs and treat both Biden and Palin. This is nothing but a lame attempt to divert attention away from Sarah Palin's performance.
