Given the amount of talk surrounding wireless receivers, do you think they might attempt to check and make sure she doesn't have one before the debate happens? Or will they just chalk it up as paranoia and feel embarassed if they actually did check?

Lehk: bulldg4life: Something like this should totally be placed on the underside of her podium

sneaking unidentified electronic devices onto a podium a VP candidate is going to be using sounds like a great way to get shot in the head.


Not if Biden has one in his pocketses. What's the range on jammers?

That's sexist. You are implying that vagina= clown car. We all know from the fark cliche that vagina is NOT a clowncar.


Ok, ok. Clowntruck?

Anyway, she'll have a suspicious bulge on her back; first she'll try to blame it on her French tailor, then she'll say it's g-14 classified and required by the secret service...

Maybe Biden can tell a story about how President FDR got up out of his wheelchair to appear on TV in 1929 to reassure the American people that all the 7/11's in Delaware weren't full of Indian type people...

One of the best ideas I've read for completely derailing Palin's prepackaged talking points would be for Biden to take a question, quickly outline a complex answer, and then say:

"And I would now like to cede the remainder of my response time to Governor Palin."

The flailing would be epic. Any bets on two minutes of silence vs. two minutes of WHARRGARGHBL?

indenture: A receiver small enough to fit in her hear has gotta be analog. How hard could it be to find the frequency? After that, record her "help" for a few questions and then jam it right in the middle of her answer.

Wait for her prompter to say something like, "OK, Sarah, home run! I have the answer right here.... BEEEEEEP!!!!"

Or even better, use the frequency to taunt her, hopefully until she takes the hearing aid out on camera.


Good luck stepping on those carriers, freq's and sub channels. We are talking GOP here.

ExJerseyGirl: TheOther: I predict we're going to see lots of closeups/photoshops of the side of Palin's head for the next six weeks. I think Biden should wear this onstage:

LOL


Is that a terrorist headscarf? How dare you?

I can't wait for the gimmicks she's going to try. She "won" her last debate for governor by showing up with a stack of flashcards she called her "deck of solutions" or something.

2:1 she'll have something given to her by one of the world leaders she met on her "It's A Small World After All" tour of the UN last week.

Oooh! Maybe she'll have some of McCain's medals!

Candidates using ear pieces during a debate is unheard of. I cannot believe anyone would buy into such a ridiculous theory.

The Onanist: I_C_Weener: So does Biden. POW! PlagirPWNED!

Yes. Keep parroting that little nugget of misinformation.

"Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr., fighting to salvage his Presidential campaign, today acknowledged ''a mistake'' in his youth, when he plagiarized a law review article for a paper he wrote in his first year at law school."

New York Times, Sept. 18, 1987

At least we would understand what he was attemping to say.

Sadly, idiot running mates don't make or break a presidential election (see Dan Quayle.)

The debate is on at 5 a.m. over here and, oh yes, I'll be awake to watch the carnage.

Love how Biden's people are setting her up as a "formidable" opponent.
 
2008-09-30 6:26:17 PM  
3-1 on making her cry? What's the odds on her squeezing out a tear to grab the sympathy vote? Cause I'll put money down on that.
 
2008-09-30 6:26:27 PM  
Honestly you libs are on full replay. Anytime a Republican mispeaks, they are stupid and dumb. Let Biden or any other idiotic lib ask a crippled man in a wheel chair to stand up, oh well he's just Joe being Joe. Keep up the tired old play fellas we know what you will say after the debate as well.

Sarah Palin. A woman barely sentient. Responsible for the firing of one state trooper, the harassment of one municipal librarian, and the suicides of three high-school science teachers. A woman who's pretty sure that Jesus rode dinosaurs.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild her mind. We have the technology. We can make her smarter than she was. Better. Quicker. '1337er.

We probably can't do much about the Jesus-and-dinosaur thing, though. Even six million dollars can't fix stupid.

I am not sure the GOP are preparing her to have the right answers.
My guess is that they are preparing her to look as pathetic and 'adorable' as possible. So when that 'mean old man' starts making her look silly, people will start to feel sorry for the poor girl.

I am amazed that Farkers are yet again underestimating the tactics of the republicans.

Drinking game for debate:
Regular mode:
Biden says "Excited" twice in the same sentence: Take a drink.
Palin repeats a previously stated sentence: Take a drink.
Biden mentions that Barack "better watch out if he comes for my gun": finish drink.
Palin mentions being near Russia as foreign policy experience: finish drink.

Nightmare Mode:
Take a drink every time Palin says "John McCain's plan..."
Take a drink every time Biden says "change"

Bonus economy mode:
Take a drink every time one party blames the other for the financial crises and then immediately calls for bipartisan unity, or vice versa.

Maybe it was sort of like a fido shock system. Everytime Bush would speak beyond that of his bullet point notes, Cheney would push the remote.

Kome: I predict Palin will shoot first and answer questions later. Or never. Or whatever. Either way, she's going to have a gun.


Well, Missouri does have concealed carry reciprocity with AK so she'd be legal. ;-)

Darrell Hammond is always the safe bed to do the impression if no one else is obvious. And Hammond looks a bit like Biden.

It's actually a fairly standard debating trick that prevents your opponent from launching their answer on their own terms, something particularly bad for someone who only has rehearsed talking points to work with.

and would cost him the election if it wasnt already in the bag for palin

Hmm... And here I thought it was supposed to be the Obama supporters who were full of delusional hope...

I'd love to see her fail and fall flat on her face, but I'm pretty sure that won't happen. Not only are the debate rules more to her liking, but from that CNBC interview and the debates when she was running for governor, it's obvious that when she's on solid ground (or can get there quickly), she's as good as any politician.

If this were a real debate, sure she'd get hammered, but it's just a series of talking points and she can handle that as well as Biden.

Still, I can hope to see her flummoxed and utterly fail like she did in the Couric and Gibson interviews.

Like the last debate, I'll be at work and unable to watch or listen. Likely, I'll read and comment on the Fark comments, like last time.

shivashakti: I feel bad for McCain. I don't care for the guy, but as a candidate, he deserves better than to have to rely on the idiots of the country being able to relate to Sarah Palin. I mean, everyone razzed the hell out of Dan Quayle for the potatoe potato thing.


FTFY. Ironically, the same mistake Quayle made.

Biden was probably the best of all the Dem candidates during the primary debates.
