It's not as if KHOW talk-show host Dan Caplis has tried to maintain his objectivity in covering the 2008 presidential race -- witness "The Obama Tapes," a misbegotten jihad against Barack Obama; the "research" Caplis did in compiling it consists primarily of having listened to one of Obama's audio books. But the circle of partisanship will be completed on Saturday, when Caplis emcees a rally featuring Republican ticket-mates John McCain and Sarah Palin in the conservative beachhead of Colorado Springs. No word as to whether Craig Silverman, Caplis' afternoon-drive co-host, will be sitting to the side of the stage, muttering to himself while no one listens.
