Did You Watch the Debate?

doggone it! Ya know, me and the other soccer mom's are just gonna get in the minivan and gather up all the normal Joe six-pack Americans and then reform Wall Street and get rid of all of those East Coast politicians and protect our troops and have victory in Iraq because I've joined this team that is a team of mavericks, and with John McCain and his track record of reform and deregulation, I should be able to answer these tough questions without the filter, even, of the mainstream media! You betcha!

You have to give Sarah Palin credit where credit is due. When properly rehearsed, she is indeed able to speak in complete sentences on the whole. She still seems to have a small problem with actually matching the correct answer to any given question, however. Also, she doesn't seem to understand the economy, foreign policy, the Iraq war, education, energy, carbon emissions, global warming, the middle class, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, subprime loans, arugula, Israel or Palestine, but at least she's adorable when she mispronounces the word nuclear!

Gwen Ifill: 'WTF?'

UPDATE: My friend George sent me this.

Additionally, there were times where she refused to answer the question posed. She even said that she wasn't going to answer a question but say what she wanted to say instead.

If elected, I guess that at least she'll provide entertainment value far beyond that of Dan Quayle. We haven't had a funny VP since Bush 1, though I'd really prefer a competent one.

My daughter wondered aloud if:

1) Palin had not watched ANY of the footage of Tina Fey imitating her, or

2) Palin watched ALL the footage of Tina Fey imitating her, and then decided to kick it up a notch in case we were getting distracted

Flirting and looking cute have been her strong points so far in life, why develop brains or character now?

Sure, she can memorize her talking points. She has that much talent, yea for her.

I tried to watch the debate last night but I found myself cringing all the while. I could listen to them talk but watching the falseness of each of them; him trying to be nice to her and smiling a million watt smile and her being a cutsie pie and flirty/folksie self, just wore me out. Ugh!

And one more thing--the only button she should have her hand on is the one between her legs, certainly not any buttons to nuclear arsenals.

Now give the lady some credit. She did better than anyone ever expected her to, basically by not making a complete and utter fool of herself. I'd say it reminded me of the movie Rocky except hat this was no split decision. McCain clearly won: he was serious, intelligent, and had the facts at his fingertips! Palin did go the distance, though.

I mean Biden clearly won... it's be a rough day.

It's pretty clear to me that once the McCain campaign untethered the wonderful Miss Palin we got to see the real her and it's clear she won. All Biden did was try to confuse me with facts and logic. Folksy backwood anecdotes speak to me as a person with real family values.

Biden debated. Palin postured.

There's a big difference between the two, and that is why she didn't "fail."

I like it when she underpronunciates nukyular and winks.

ACKKKK! Her effort was just so exeptionalism. When I saw that word fly out her mouth I knew we had a new Bush.

I watched Biden debate Bullwinkle. Lots of bull and a few winks.

wow thats pretty much the same flow chart I use at work

For someone with her experience working on air at a TV station, she should have done a lot better. Of course, that require her to know what she is talking about, not just the current talking points of her party.

Like the flow chart!!

SNL take on the debate was great. Especially when Fey/ Palin whipped out her flute.

Hilarious, I love the flow chart.

Nothing but spunky platitudes and sound and fury signifying nothing.

Ifill: "Governor Palin, what is your stand on the issue of amending the tax code to index to inflation the AMT?"

Palin: "That's an important questions, but let me point out that Senator McCain and I have always been strong advocates for both cute puppies and kittens! Unlike Senator Obama who hates them!"

No, she most certainly is not!

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator: Ha! I am still waiting to find out if she can spell 'potato'. ;o)

Bubs: You daughter is wise beyond her years. I think that Tina Fey is better at doing Sarah Palin than Sarah Palin is!

Übermilf: True! Certainly brains or character are of little use to her party up to this point.

Liberality: I understand your disdain for all of the trappings of the debate. I thought that Biden did what he had to do, though. Politics makes for some strange situations.

Liberality: Button, button, who's got the button!

Lee: I agree. Palin did do better than anyone expected. Still, twice nothing is still nothing!

Lee: :o)

Jay Matthews: Ha! Don't let the door of reality hit you as you leave!

Unconventional Conventionist: Yep. Not falling flat on your face is rarely the same thing as winning.

Randal Graves: She is just like Vice President George Bush, only cuter!

Utah Savage: I agree! She is like the runway model that didn't fall down. Whew!

ThoughtCriminal: Ha! That's a great line. I might just steal it!

Pidomon: Hee hee!

Kulkuri: Yes, she should have done a lot better. But it's over now and she can go back to energizing the base!

Dean Wormer: Ha! The flute was the best part!

CDP: :o)

Comrade Kevin: For the Republicans, I guess that spunky platitudes are better than nothing!

MWB: Ha! She is just like Dr. Monkerstein. He hates puppies, too!

Duros62: OK, OK. But she is adorable when she lies and winks!
