GWEN IFILL CELEBRATES CLINCHING OF IRAN DEAL: “The non-journalist from a supposedly non-partisan public television network spitefully and sarcastically rubbed the prime minister of Israel’s face into it,” Rick Moran writes at the PJ Tatler.

In October of 2008, Ifill moderated the vice presidential debate between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden while having a book scheduled to be published the following January titled The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama. Obviously, “the breakthrough” couldn’t occur unless Obama won in November, but that Candy Crowley-sized conflict of interest didn’t deter Ifill from serving as moderator. Back then, I titled my post on Ifill’s ginormous bias as “Writing the Last Chapter First.”

But with lame duck Democrat Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) willing to take one for the team as the final vote Obama needs to override a veto on his deal with Iran, the real last chapter of Obama’s biography may have just been written. Fortunately for Ifill, as Rick concludes, “by then, a Republican will probably be president so Ifil and her Obama worshippers can blame them for their own towering stupidity in blindly following the dangerous legacy-building of their hero.”
