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.

Nahh, she's been in seclusion the past few days getting her Stepford Wife 2.0 upgrade, with foreign policy and financial market awareness plugins..

I'll be watching purely for the train-wreck that will most certainly ensue..

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

She can probably get away with sounding a little more intelligent than she has so far but if she suddenly sounds like she knows what she's talking about the conspiracy theories will run wild on Friday about how they were able to feed her answers.

I can't wait to watch this. It may be the most entertaining debate of our time. And I bet more people watch it that the Obama/McCain debate last week.

Biden, "Listen kitten, women are wonderful cuddly things and great in the kitchen, but not on stage without a pole."

Palin, "Not sure if you mean pole as in the North Pole, which I can see from house...or something else....so, in what respect do you mean pole, Joe?"

Biden, "I mean a brass pole to dance to, shake your butt like in that movie with Demi Moore. Come on, everyone stand up who believes we need more poles in politics...am I really saying this?"

Palin, "Oh I understand now. Yes, I considered paying my way through year 3 of college with a brief stint of pole dancing. Year 3 of law school was when you plagierized, wasn't it Joe?"

Biden, "I did my time for that, and never plagiarized again...except in Congress that one time. All the other times it was my original work."

Palin, "And mighty fine work it was Senator. Can you see Spain from your state?"

I'm going to watch it with the sound turned down. I bet it'll be hilarious.

Lets not forget, she used to be a newscaster - she has serious experience with earpieces and repeating information fed to her.

I'm sure there is a directional jammer out there somewhere that would serve quite well for the occasion.

Drink every time Sarah says the following phrases:
"maverick"
"you know"
"like"
"I'll have to get back to you"

If she starts talking about the "Bridge to Nowhere", "Selling a Private Jet on Ebay", or "Proximity of Russia" chug for as long as she rambles on about these things.

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).

True enough. Maybe she can get a dig about Biden being there for a long time. You know, like someone else on one of the tickets...

Or Biden? I bet both of the candidates will be hammered this Thursday with a tape response waiting. Biden and Palin are both train wreaks looking for a place to happen.
 
2008-09-30 4:59:16 PM  
Too bad I won't get to watch this. I do, however, put the odds at Palin wearing an earpiece at 1:1.

Are any of you actually serious about her having a receiver during the debate?

Honestly?

Would it even help? She apparently had crib notes during the Katie Couric interview and all it did was make her vomit up a bunch of random talking points.

Well if she does well in the debate then that will be the line. WTF!! OMG!! EAR PIECE!! If she fails then the joke will be that the ear piece when out on her.

I wonder what the talking point would be if Biden starts enjoying the taste of his loafer?
 
2008-09-30 5:04:51 PM  
I'm just saying that it's incomprehensible that they'd even try such a thing, yet I heard some yahoo calling in to the Ed Schultz show say he was sure she'd be wired.

Some crazy ass people out there.

Incomprehensible? Really? You find it impossible to comprehend a situation wherein the campaign, worried that Palin might continue to look like a complete idiot, goes out on a limb to try to assist her? Unlikely, perhaps, but incomprehensible? No.

This contention that Biden is as big of a trainwreck as hackey mam is quite the stretch.

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.

Dunno - she's trained in it. She was a newscaster.

I don't know. She really comes off as very unintelligent. The Republicans are taking a big gamble agreeing to this. I can't stand Biden, but he's going to put the verbal smackdown on her. She's way over her head here.

The McCain campaign's future is riding on her performance at the debate. If she has a disastrous performance, like her interviews with Couric or Gibson, at the debate the McCain campaign is going to lose a lot of face. And the McCain campaign cannot afford to lose any ground, when there are only 24 news days left before election day.

Or just broadcast feedback intermittently across the channel until she has to rip the damn thing out of her ear. That would be a classic TV moment that would survive for decades.

On second thought, I'm not sure a disastrous performance is going to wreck her here. She was selected because she's an idiot. The vast majority of people in this country who are as stupid or stupider than she is aren't going to be concerned when she can't answer hardball questions except by referring to previously stated GOP positions.

All she has to do is come off as sympathetic to the morons.

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 thing.

That's nothing compared to this woman. This woman believes that dinosaurs walked the earth with cavemen. She lacks a basic knowledge of science.

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:

2008-09-30 5:53:03 PM  
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.

I'm telling you right now, anyone who uses "you know" is suicidal.
