Barbara West deserves an award for her interview with Joe Biden

So the campaign gave her one. No more interviews with anyone:
Biden so disliked West's line of questioning that the Obama campaign canceled a WFTV interview with Jill Biden, the candidate's wife.

"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election," wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign.
I guess the NY Times needn't have any such worries about access.

PS: Don't miss the interview via the link. West could have asked some better follow up questions, but I can't imagine Dan Rather et al even thinking of doing such an interview, except perhaps in their nightmares.

UPDATE: Looks like Ol' Smokin' Joe had another rough experience lately:

Poor guy. Wait 'til he runs into Vladimir Putin.
