I only live a few blocks from where the debate is being held. I hope in won't take a few weeks to clean up the Palin trainwreck. It's already bad enough they're closing Big Bend Rd for 48 hours.

Something tells me she'll be at Blueberry Hill after the debate pounding down the shots to try and kill the pain.

Oh, and I forgot, which of the 57 states is this debate going take place in?

A prankster that God is might just cut into the radio signal....

SARAH, THIS IS YER LORD GOD SPEAKING TO YOU. SARAH, YOU MUST LISTEN AND OBEY TO WHAT YOUR GOD SAYS.

Sarah: Ya know, Mavericky peop.. *suddenly goes squinky eyed and silent*

SARAH, YOUR GOD SAYS; STAND ON ONE LEG.

Mod: Um, Gov. Palin, are you ok?

Biden seeing behind the podium wonders if she has to pee or summat.

SARAH, YOUR GOD SAYS HOP ON ONE LEG AND GIBBER LIKE AN APE.

Gov Palin appears to go completely insane on TV in front of millions waiting for the trainwreck. Nelson Ratings goes off the scale.

SARAH, STOP AND SPIN AROUND AND AROUND!

Mod: Staff, Gov. Palin appears to be having a seizure or something. Please, get the doctor on stage, now!

SARAH, I DIDN'T TELL YOU 'YOUR GOD SAYS' SO, BZZT YOU DON'T GET TO PLAY ANYMORE. GO SIT DOWN.

God plays 'Simon Says' with his followers at the weirdest times.

Will you watch for the train wreck? (1-1)

Have to work that night, but the cable box and VCR are already set to record. I should probably tape SNL as well because you just know Tina Fey will be back.

I'm looking forward to more drinking games posted here.

Tacoby Bellisbury: bartink: 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.

LOL please, that was funny. Im getting a good kick out if it. Please, show me your proof of my lack of education. oh wait, its the internet, and yore a liar. Please, stop bevfore you embarras yourself like a Rotsky

BooRabideau: 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


But when Biden makes a mistatement it makes him FOLKSY! It shows Americans that Joe Biden, while a powerful politician, still sometimes says things that don't make all that much sense, like your uncle sometimes does. But you still love your uncle don't you? Or do you hate your family if they make a faux pas? Or do you forgive them?

Joe Biden is the PEOPLE'S VP, he is down to earth and he talks like one of the middleclass. His occasional missteps are nothing more than his overflowing HUMANITY brimming to the surface.

Because none of us are PERFECT, because that's the way God meant it to be.

By calling Biden a moron, you are directly insulting GOD!

Corvus: Lets see you can vote for the guys who gave you:

The biggest attack on US soil


Not their fault

2 wars that have still not been won.


Absolutely their fault

From the largest budget surplus to the largest deficit


The first part of that was an accounting trick (the government simply spent more of the SS money and issued less public debt), part two is their fault


And the biggest stock market point lose in US history

This particular financial disaster is a bipartisan effort.
And we the people are very much involved in it as well.
// waves to all the mortgage brokers house flippers and real estate agents who already took their cut.


A National infrastructure that is crumbling

It's not crumbling out west, maybe ya'll are doing it wrong...


and Yes if McCain is elected it will be the same people. He is already running around with Bush people.


Most likely true

Now, if you wanted to go high-tech, you could use the HSS voice-caster, and put it right in her ear from her group's table. Especially if there's a big open space behind her and some thick curtains or something for a backdrop, you'd never pick it up.

This debate will be bad news...for Tina Fey.

She's got her own show to tape and Palin keeps doing goofy shiat to make Tina come in and be the only funny part of SNL every week.

I feel sorry for Biden, they didn't call her Barracuda because she is weak willed and a pushover. She will have a whole repertoire of zingers in the style of Ronald Reagan.
Have you heard what happened to Walter Mondale in the Presidential Debates of 1986.
RR responded on cue when Mondale said something about his age.
If my opponent will not use my age as an issue I will not use his youth and lack of experience against him .
This made Walter crack a smile and everyone laugh and afterwards Mondale said later he knew right then he'd lost the election.

The Baracuda has every book on Ronald Reagan and has tryed to be true to his conservative phylsophy which brought RR a landslide 48 state victory against Walter Mondale.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but even the left leaning media can't make up enough lies against her and McCain to make the people vote socialist.
The only way the left can win is to convense people they are what they are not.
We have a bunch of Idiots on both sides and this great country is being misled by them.
3/4 of DC should be tared and feathered and run out of town on a rail. Well that would have been the answer a long time ago.
Maybe they should reinstate dueling in DC.
That would be a form of Term Limits would it not.

Davy Crockett had to get out of DC because after they banned dueling the opposition kept trying to get him to accept a challange by a poor shot therefore getting him arrested and inprisioned and nolonger a threat.

too bad it's not a good thing


The difference between Biden and Palin is the difference between Shakespeare making a typo, and a monkey trying to write Hamlet.
 
2008-09-30 6:56:09 PM  
The whole point of her having an earpiece is moot. As others have stated, she did rather poorly in her first interview and crashed & burnt in her second. Practically every time she's around a camera something stupid happens it seems, and the McCain campaign is clearly terrified at what will happen if she tries to answer questions [Remember the meeting that was insta-cancelled after a reporter asked Palin a question?] of any kind.

If she shows up and exhibits a nigh-magical improvement in knowledgability regarding everything, it will be painfully obvious. On top of that, there's the fact (noted above) that having crib notes during her Couric interview resulted in semantically-devoid wharrgarbl instead of improved answers.

Anyway, uh...

Rules: Drink every time Palin WHARRGARBLs or Biden has a gaffe. medics are standing by for alcohol-induced comas

This Is Bold Text: tfm_copycat: Come on, let McCain-Palin win. I want the full trilogy in this 12 year span.

That image misspells judgment.


Not everybody lives in the United States or learns your version of the language.

Just 3 things:
1) I didn't create that image.
2) I just want Obama to win so at least the Bush idiocracy ends. Bush' decisions have had repercussions in Europe which I did not like.
3) The expression of Palin in that pic is priceless.

The Republicans are lowering expectations:

Palin Wins! ... if she manages to not stab herself with her black Sharpie

Palin Wins! ... If she doesn't call Biden "Governor"

Palin Wins! ... If she only says 'physicial crisis' ONCE

Palin Wins! ... If she only calls Obama 'Osama' TWICE

Palin Wins! ... If she knows the difference between a tactic and a stategy

Palin Wins! ... If Biden performs brilliantly.

please keep on talking and showing me why i shouldn't associate myself with the likes that support a man who cites words written by others and who has no real track history or accomplishments but is celebrated as a great man regardless . . . just because he wears a different letter on his chest than the one in office

please remind me how to research the person, the issues, and to think for myself by reading news from all sources and not just the mainstream

thank you . . . i appreciate not being a partisan lackey

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


Whenever I see one of these things, or even most interviews, I wish ... just once ... after the politician is done they'd be told "you didn't answer the question" but I guess all politicians learn early on that, no matter what they're asked, their best bet is to answer the question they wish they were asked, instead.

DamnYankees 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.

No you can't. Trouble is, if she gets asked a specific all the Republicans will cry foul gotcha question. As someone mentioned in one thread yesterday, I would pay money to see her interviewed by Helen Thomas.

I've never missed Tim Russert more than now.

As much as Ed and I disagree on some politics, the guy is a great hunter and fisherman, though he doesn't get to do it as often as he did when he was our local (Fargo, ND) Sports Newscaster. Often would hunt with him and my father years ago when I was still in middle and high school. We did do some pheasent hunting a couple of years ago though I haven't seen him much since. Still a good friend of the family's.
