Unlike most in the media and blogosphere, Stephen thinks Gibsonopoulos did a heckuva job at ABC's Democratic debate.

Last night was the Pennsylvania Democratic debate on ABC. It was the most exciting verbal sparring held in Philadelphia since Ben Franklin haggled with an 18th century pimp. The night was a huge success. To begin with, for moderator, ABC courageously chose George Stephanopoulos, who owes his career to the fact that he was Bill Clinton’s Communications Director. So he was objective, in the sense that everyone knew his bias. Listen to how he went after Sen. Clinton about a conversation where she said Obama couldn’t win the general election.

I’m not going to ask about that conversation; I know you don’t want to talk about it.

She doesn’t want to talk about it. Enough said. Let’s move on. Besides, it would have taken away time from asking Obama this:

Do you think Rev. Wright loves America as much as you do?

He followed up with the equally pressing question “Could God create a rock so heavy that He Himself could not know you’re a secret Muslim?”

Be sure to check out "The Colbert Report" website for all things Stephen.
