Via Politico. The boss is disgusted but I think this is the right way to play it. No sense whining beforehand; the public is already on notice of her bias thanks to Drudge and Michelle, and McCain will have plenty of opportunity to hammer her afterwards if she goes into the tank anyway. Besides, Team Maverick’s bludgeoned the media so often lately that I think they’re at risk of blunting the effect from sheer volume. Take the magnanimous route now, hope that Ifill responds to the heat by being fair to Palin, and in the meantime simply point out that a moderator with a book in the works about McCain would never, ever be tolerated. The Giuliani approach, in other words.
