The Biden Interview

So Joe Biden was asked a few questions on TV- and he didn't like the upstart journalist's attitude.

She didn't deliver the usual fawning softballs the Obama campaign is used to. Displaying a tone of incredulity which would have had Palin forever ridiculed had she chosen to use it, Biden brushed off the legitimate questions- and the Obama campaign promptly cancelled the channel's interview with his wife.

In a statement Friday, Adrianne Marsh, Florida spokeswoman for Obama’s campaign, said the station, in talking with Sen. Biden, was “both combative and woefully uninformed about simple facts.”

How dare a journalist have the temerity to ask combative questions of a candidate for the Vice Presidency of the USA!

Funnily enough, the spokeswoman makes no mention of the fact that Joe Biden was woefully uninformed about the Obama campaign's links with ACORN. He denied the links altogether, paricularly the "get out the vote" effort. You know, this one-

U.S. Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign paid more than $800,000 to an offshoot of the liberal Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now for services the Democrat's campaign says it mistakenly misrepresented in federal reports.

An Obama spokesman said Federal Election Commission reports would be amended to show Citizens Services Inc. -- a subsidiary of ACORN -- worked in "get-out-the-vote" projects, instead of activities such as polling, advance work and staging major events as stated in FEC finance reports filed during the primary.

But you won't hear the Obama campaign correcting the blatant lie mistake that Joe Biden made.

Now, just for a moment imagine that Palin had delivered this Biden performance- and that the McCain campaign had petulantly cancelled another interview. Do you suppose that story might be played just a little differently by the MSM?
