Last night's debate moderator, Bob Scheiffer, made a slip of the tongue that was immediately picked up by most every news outlet, newspaper and blog in the county. His goof was to call Osama Bin Laden, OBAMA Bin Laden.   This isn't the first time we've heard this slip up by folks in the media.  It was just an honest mistake and I don't think Scheiffer got raked over the coals for it, nor should he.  Sometimes you just say something wrong that you don't mean to say.  I'm giving him a mulligan on this because I don't believe it was intentional nor preplanned.  
I wonder however, how it would  have been played by the rest of the media, had the comment come from a more conservative source like Rush Limbaugh or Allen West.  I would be willing to bet they would be crucified.  Just goes to show the state of politics and the media in this country today.  There is truly, without a doubt, a double standard.
