McCain's Buddy Brokaw's Unfair Debate Performance

I gave Brokaw the benefit of the doubt that he wouldn't let his bias show. Well, that was silly of me.
So, I went into last night's debate knowing that John McCain and Tom Brokaw are personal friends--Brokaw has celebrated McCain's birthday with him and served as his personal advocate at NBC News--but giving Brokaw the benefit of the doubt that he wouldn't let his bias show.

Well, that was silly of me.

Brokaw laughed openly at McCain's various attempts at humor, and it appeared on at least two occasions that McCain was gesturing to Brokaw behind Obama's back as he spoke--neither of which would have bothered me nearly as much if his demonstrable preference wasn't made manifest in a glaring disparity between his graciousness toward each candidate.
