The Night Hell Iced Over

Even two conservative bloggers noticed how very conservative the bias in our so-called liberal media actually is while following tonight's debate between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Here is what Andrew Sullivan says:

9.32 pm. No questions on the environment, none on terror, none on interrogation, none on torture, none on education, none on spending, none on healthcare, none on Iran ... but four separate questions in the first hour about a lapel-pin, Bitter-gate, Wright-gate and Ayers. I'm all for keeping candidates on their toes. But this was ridiculous.

And here is Jonah Goldberg at the conservative Corner:

I'm no leftwing blogger, but I can only imagine how furious they must be with the debate so far. Nothing on any issues. Just a lot of box-checking on how the candidates will respond to various Republican talking points come the fall. Now I think a lot of those Republican talking points are valid and legitimate. But if I were a "fighting Dem" who thinks all of these topics are despicable distractions from the "real issues," I would find this debate to be nothing but Republican water-carrying.

It really was a travesty of a debate. Atrios suggests that we complain about it. A lot.
