Born one of six children to a Methodist pastor, Gwen Ifill is the managing editor of PBS’s Washington Week, and a senior correspondent for the News Hour With Bossy’s Husband Jim Lehrer.
She is also the moderator of tonight’s Vice Presidential debate between senior Senator Joe Biden with his thirty-six years of experience chairing things like the Foreign Relations Committee, and that lady who’s holed up in the basement of McCain’s Arizona ranch memorizing the names of Supreme Court cases.
Gwen Ifill‘s impartiality has lately been questioned since she is currently writing a book entitled, The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama, which is an overview of the black political landscape since the Civil Rights Movement.
But McCain himself backed the selection of Gwen Ifill for the debate, stating he was confident she would be objective, while Gwen defends her ability to remain impartial since she has not yet written the chapter on Barack Obama.
And Bossy can totally relate, because Bossy has not yet written her chapter on Barack O’Boyfriend either—although when she does write her chapter on Obama, Bossy hopes it’s a chapter written on Obama’s back. While he lies face down. On Bossy’s bed.
Don’t miss the debate—tonight at 9pm EST.
