Watching the latest debate was like déjà vu all over again. Once again, Sarah Palin was lighter than a feather, all fluff, no substance and not an original thought in her pretty little head. Not to worry though, Sarah’s got values say her fans. Sort of like the latest NFL thug who after getting arrested has the fans saying you can’t suspend him, he’s got skills!
And, Joe doesn’t get off the hook either for this snore fest. As I stated before, Joe has lost a bit on his fastball, witness how he tried to “characterized” John McCain. Thought for a moment he was having a stroke but Joe Biden soon recovered to “bore again”.
So what’s the final scorecard on Sarah?
Round 3: The VP Debate
Here are my running comments as this debate bores on:
Some sample Sarah comments: “They don’t like America!” she said of foreign oil producers. Well, they like our money. About global warming, “Climate change is occurring but there are cyclical changes.” (paraphrase) She doesn’t want to argue about it , but we got to “clean up the problem”. Huh?
Sarah’s answers are a long, rambling, run-on sentences, I mean does this woman ever take a breathe? Please, get some oxygen to your brain, Sarah! Take a breath will you?
Same sex couples? She’ll be tolerant and, get this, she digs diversity! She doesn’t support anything but one man and one woman. But then again Joe and Obama weaseled out on the gay issue.
As to Iraq, remember that Bush money pit? “We got to win in Iraq” and then it’s off to Afghanistan, she said. Who’s Talibbany by the way? Iran, guess what, no nukes says Sarah. Why? They hate America! Okay but where’s the beef? And don’t bother looking Joe’s way. He and Obama look like they are content to run the clock out thinking they have a lead. Hey, there are 30 plus day left in the election!
So far, no major faux pas from Sarah but I think I fell asleep at one point. Boring! But nuclear weaponry sounds so annoying coming from her. Still, better that Bush’s pronunciation of nu-cu-ler.
I think the audience either passed out or left the debate out of indifference it was so quiet. I’m not into the moderator, Gwen either. I understand she is a black conservative but hey she’s boring. Think there’s a common thread here? Where’s Tina Fey when you need her or for that matter Hillary?
Oh no, Sarah’s pushing that Washington outsider crap. Please you’re a politician, that’s the very definition of an insider. Opps, did she just make a comment about changing the VP role? Who does she think she is? Dick Cheney?
Oh no, Joe just had another senior moment, he seems to skip every so often like an old warped record! Ah, he just restarted and is attacking McCain’s maverick credentials! Good for him, I thought we would have to ge the paddles out to resuscitate him. Then at one point Joe gets verklemptwhen talking about raising his family. Way to show your softer side Joe!
Sarah is going to fight for the middle class! We are blessed and she is proud to be an American. Yikes, what a cliche fest!
As for Joe…zzzzzzzz
That’s it? No knock out but are Sarah’s scoccer Mom values enough as we near a financial meltdown?
Round 2: Katie Couric Interview
I sat down sat again with my wife to watch the Sarah Palin interview with Katie Couric. As Sarah mumbled a bizarre answer, my wife turned to me and said “What the hell? What a dope!”
I had to agree, it was another embarrassing train wreck of an interview. The woman can’t put two thoughts together, never mind express them in a coherent fashion. As Sarah was talking or should I say stumbling, I was saying to myself, okay this is how you should respond. Instead she gave a long rambling, incoherent commentary about Alaska, national security and her Russian neighbor. Then I had my epiphany: Sarah’s like Dan Quayle, only not as pretty. Really, it was Dan Quayle and losing one’s mind speech all over again. Doesn’t matter though, neo-cons like Silly little Freak still love Sarah because she has “values”. I just guess that intelligence is not one of those shared values. No wonder why this country is sinking so fast!
I am not saying Sarah is stupid like George Bush stupid, really somebody please do a brain scan on him, but she was clearly coached and if I was Vladimir Putin I would definitely want to invite her to my next poker party. If Bush got all weepy looking into Putin’s eyes you can only imagine what Palin’s response will be to the Russian dictator.
So what of Sarah Palin and her religious beliefs? Well, five to six years ago she was a member of a Pentecostal church, the Assembly of God to be exact. Now these rocket scientists believe in a literal bible, talking in tongues, faith healing and, how can we forget, the ever popular end-of-times. We have had so many end of times I don’t were to begin. This type of inspired lunacy leads to such clear thinking as “it’s God’s will that is being done in Iraq.” Funny, I thought that was the work of a mediocre son looking to clear his daddy’s historical record but, hey, what the hell do I know? I mean we went in there to separate those heathens from the WMD’s right? Eh, okay the weapons weren’t there but we did bring freedom to the Iraqis, right? You know freedom from boredom as the local militia executes the men in your family but hey that’s God’s plan and you can’t argue about the big picture, right?
The good news is that God’s plans are not just relegated to simple matters of war. No way! Did you know that a new pipe line is a task from God? Me, I was thinking Exxon-Mobil but I guess I think way too small. Really, Palin said this. God’s will is to be done developing our natural resources, never mind all we are doing is feeding a nasty oil habit and that the sooner we can move to something alternative the sooner we can tell the idiots in the Middle East what they can do with their oil. Ask Sarah about Creationism and she’ll reply sure Creationism should be taught in school! We don’t have a lick of proof that it can’t stand up to rigorous scientific review but hell proof didn’t stop us from invading Iraq.
Round 1: Charlie Gibson Interview
Being independently minded, I sat with my wife and we watched the first interview on ABC first hand before anybody had an opportunity to tell us how to think about the interview. I’m sorry but as I sat there I found it be both embarrassing and uncomfortable to watch. I replayed it several times on the DVR watching their facial expressions and their body language and it reeked of pure train wreck! Charlie looked like a pained, almost constipated school teacher and Sarah Palin resembled the proverbial moose caught in the headlights.
I’m sorry but the look on her face was priceless. It’s amazing how the Ben Stein fundamentalist creationist crowd regurgitates everything that is thrown at it by the cynical Republican conservatives, by the way the very same conservative wing that was all but ready to throw McCain under the bus. Then McCain goes out and drafts the fundamentalist Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential trophy candidate and she say goes around saying “god tasked us to do this and god speaks to us” and the next thing you know McCain is called “McBrilliant” by the vicodin-laden gas bag named Rush Limbaugh.
