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

I'm not a McCain supporter, FAIL

Everyone in here is an independent. Don't you know that?


Is this where you say 'get busy livin' or get busy dyin'?

No maybe she'll say:

Barney Frank and Chris Dodd assured us that Fannie and Freddie were in good shape. Obama received the second most $$ from F and F. Dodd got a "VIP" loan from Countrywide. McCain warned of needed regulations, Bush warned of needed regulations, regulators warned of needed regulations. Dems said no, give loans to people who can't pay them.

And when it comes crashing down, what is the erudite Democrat response?

"It's the Republicans fault."

That is a shiat sandwich.

I mean really, how often do you look at a man's Vice Presidential choice?

quickdraw: If the debate happens we can be sure they figured out some way to make her sound good. They will not send her out knowing she will fail because they have nothing to gain by doing so.

They would be better off having her drop out then have any more bad clips running around the net.

If that means a wire will work then they will use one but I'd imagine they will find some way to prevent jamming the signal. The stakes are too high.


Or they could be saying "Aww fark it! She'll do it live!"
 
2008-09-30 6:38:40 PM  
Palin was obviously the correct choice for McCain, seeing how the Obamaniacs and other assorted leftards are running so damned scared. This thread is proof of that...
 
2008-09-30 6:39:22 PM  

Weaver95: I'd either jam the wireless frequency and watch her squirm, or i'd hijack the frequency and start farking with her head while she was live with the nation.


Feed in the sound of a baby crying, and watch her start leaking in front of the entire country.

DamnYankees: Everyone in here is an independent. Don't you know that?


I'm an independent. I just happen to think that the Republicans have been so catastrophically wrong about everything that I can't in good conscience ever, ever, even consider voting for one of them. And I like that we might have a smart guy as president. It worked out the last time, and this one seems less likely to get caught getting blowjobs from interns.

DamnYankees: SomeoneDumb: 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.

You would think this about the Couric interview also.


Sorta, but Couric was asking her things she had to make up answers for and that were outside her area of familiarity. In this debate, sadly, she'll be asked about invading Iran and all she'll have to do is repeat talking points about Iran, not answer the question.

Still, I want another thirty second rambling tirade, one that maybe includes talk of being blessed or witches.

Dr._Love: 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.


I can already feel the hangover...
 
2008-09-30 6:43:31 PM  

Code_Archeologist: Unless she just keeps a cell phone in her pocket with a bluetooth ear piece in her ear hidden by her hair. No jamming or eavesdropping on that (at least not legally).


She's worn her hair "up" in every public appearance since being announced as McCain's running mate. If she shows up on stage at the debate with her hair "down", that's all anybody in the media is going to talk about.

Maybe that is the intent.

Well you don't have a PhD either, and that didn't stop you from claiming four of them. You can't write original thoughts, and that didn't stop you from copying from Malkin's user comments.

So, my guess is, you are a McCain supporter, but don't have the stones to admit it, like your other FAILures.

I hold out a modicum of hope that the moderator will actually follow up and try to make her be specific.

RULES OF THE SARAH PALIN VICE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE DRINKING GAME

--Take a chug of Moosehead beer whenever Sarah Palin says the following:

maverick

reformer

any sentence including the words "neighbor" and "Russia"

small-town values

Gwen or Joe (remember how many times Palin said "Charlie" during the Gibson interview?)

off shore oil drilling

Alaska

"Thanks but no thanks!"

witchcraft (not likely...but hey, you never know, especially if Kathleen Parker's name should pop up)

--Take two chugs of Moosehead whenever Sarah Palin does the following:

Utters a coherent sentence (i.e., contains a subject and a verb and makes logical sense)

Talks about her new friend Henry Kissinger or Hamid Karzai

Explains how being the part-time mayor of Wasilla, Alaska with a full-time city manager counts as executive experience

--Chug a whole bottle of Moosehead if Sarah Palin mentions the following:

Palin Presidency

On second thought, make that two bottles of Moosehead.

Good call. He put up great numbers in the games he played in a Canes jersey.

2008-09-30 6:45:38 PM  
can they not see the double-standards and the same ol' garbage?!

one side has a canidate with no experience, no plans, broken promises, scandals, part of the good 'ol network, adn has a running-mate that has been part of the problem for so long, is praised while the other side has the same thing and they're blasted for it . . . they'll forgive their product for anything, apparently, even indications of the enemy within

i see that the partisan blinders remain on and intact
 
2008-09-30 6:46:24 PM  
Remember, sheep, paying more taxes makes you patriotic!
Change!
A junior senator/racist and a person who has been in the Senate since 1973.
That's change we can believe in!
 
2008-09-30 6:46:43 PM  
She's got spunk, i'll give her that. And she's kind of cute. If she was running for McCain's cheerleader, i'd fully support her. As the #2 to a president who sounds borderline senile and could keel over at any moment? Not so much...

(The fact that I think McCain is getting senile is another concern I have...)
 
2008-09-30 6:46:52 PM  
If things get too hard I wonder if she'll pull her baby out and hold him up like the lion king as a distraction.

Funny how you match Obama with judgement.

He has it and it is poor.


Biden......don't get me started. That pic is full of fail, regardless of wht you say about the GOP candidates.


//Obama.....Judgement? HA! ROTFLMAO

biden: a moron who has had many several faux pas comments (many more than the ones involving his running mate), and the personification of obama's hypocrisy (not real change, just more of the same b.s., and even more scary things to boot)

just waiting to watch the trainwreck that involves the democratic camp as well as the republican camp

too bad it's not a good thing

Palin will be declared the winner after Biden speaks without pause for 89 minutes.

His reading comprehension must not be too hot either, since nowhere did I imply he was an Obama supporter.

I'm thinking his degrees involved drawing Tippy the Turtle and sending $20 plus a matchbook to a P.O. box in New Jersey.
 
2008-09-30 6:48:16 PM  
Yeah! Talk your junk. All I heard Obama say in the first debate was, "I agree with Sen. MaCain". Now if she whips out a few smart answers and he says the same, some peeps are going to be scrathing their heads.

Oh, I agree with you. She's gotta know this stuff, inside out, to be the VP, and so far nothing has shown she does.

My comment was that before she got picked by McCain, during her Governor debates, her CNBC interview, and that other early stuff, when she was on firm ground and knew her subject backwards and forwards, she's came out as good as any other politician. With this debate and the rule changes, she might be able to pull a fast one and not have to do any thinking, just reciting.
 
2008-09-30 6:48:42 PM  
You know, not that I find this remotely likely, but I think the Obama/Biden campaign folks need to at least consider the possibility that Palin could come out and have a really good night.

I mean, clearly the bar has been set low, but if she comes out and actually speaks clearly and intelligently about the issues - it could wipe out all the 'campaign suspension' discussion, and pull McCain way back up in the polls.

Code_Archeologist: 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.

Unless she just keeps a cell phone in her pocket with a bluetooth ear piece in her ear hidden by her hair. No jamming or eavesdropping on that (at least not legally).


Who cares about legally? I've got one on my desk that will take down Bluetooth as well as GSM.

O'course, it's a suspicious looking thing with a metal case, so the likelihood you could carry it in unimpeded is low unless you could hide it inside a gutted camera or something. Got a really BIG one that can be mounted on my truck, you could knock her down with that one from the parking lot.

Let them get going, then take their props out; let them speak for themselves. Comedy gold in the making, there.

Oh, ok. I kind of disagree. I don't think its the format which is the problem - its the subject matter. She may know Alaska and Wasilla, but she simply doesn't know about the world. And you can't cram for it in 2 weeks.
