If you have any doubt that Andrea Mitchell will do anything she can to get Obama elected, watch this clip until the end

Right after Palin's acceptance speech:

It's not like she's a ray of sunshine under the best of circumstances, but at that moment, I actually felt a little sorry for the old gal.

Not anymore. Now she's been caught trying to cover up Biden's mega-gaffe. Apparently she thinks:

  1. He didn't mean to say that America absolutely will be attacked if Obama is elected. Well, as he put it, twice: "Mark my words." I'm pretty sure that meant he was speaking on the record.
  2. You and I don't have the right to know.

She talks into a camera for a living. She gets to decide that Biden's public statement isn't important. We're not smart enough to figure it out for ourselves. After all, we might get the wrong idea.

Didn't it used to be Speak Truth to Power? When did it become Hide Truth for Power? Guess it all depends on the Power.
