« Thursday Thirteen #66 | Main | Oh, we’ve got trouble, right here in River City, my friends. Do you wonder who voted for it? That one! He’s gotta go, which ends with O, and that stands for Obama! »

At first, reading this caused my imagination to run away with me a bit...picturing Palin & some of her fellow mavericks attending a seminar on public speaking led by George W. Bush, spouting out sentence fragments about nothing.

I started to giggle, but then stopped abruptly when I remembered that a terrifying amount of people are going to vote for McCain.

Very worrying, indeed.


It's distressing how cowed we are by this woman. Seems like both Ifill and Biden were on their best behavior, working to not appear to be biased or mean or anything like that.

This would not happen if she were a man, so it is sexism at its worst. It also would not happen if she were Hillary Clinton, because Clinton isn't an idiot, and the Republicans don't care about looking mean. They *are* mean.

Very, very frustrating indeed.


Check out the video for Meet the Press, Gwen talks about the debate and why she did not follow up. Basically, Sarah said that she wasn't going to debate.

Personally, that ticket scares the crap out of me.
