Dearest Gwen,

Love you, love your work. There is no question of that.

Here’s the thing: You had a tough night last night, with a big spill down the stairs, tons of folks accusing that you were probably too Pro-Obama to moderate the Vice Presidential debate fairly, and close physical proximity to the most ridiculous candidate ever to stand on the debate stage.

That all sucks. And you had a big job on your hands. But we can’t help but think that the fear of seeming biased ultimately caused you to go soft on Sarah–whose robo-answers, lack of decorum, and refusal to directly answer most of your questions should have been called out and reeled in.

The fact of the matter is: SARAH PALIN IS OUT OF CONTROL. This was the one opportunity for us to really see it, and with stronger moderation combined with Joe Biden going for the jugular (as well as choking up rather beautifully), we could have seen her go down.

Instead, we got winked at.

Sigh. Oh well.
