Previews of coming attractions

I'm so pumped for the debate tonight! I'm pretty sure it's not going to be the laugh/groan fest that the Couric interviews were, because I think they'll have programmed enough attack lines into Palin that she'll be able to criticize Obama/Biden no matter what the question. She won't answer anything; she'll just attack with memorized lines.

Still, some people have some great question ideas and predictions for how it will all go down:

Pissed-off Patricia has a martini and great question about Blackwater waiting for you.

Even Princess Sparkle Pony wonders what McPalin would say when queried about choice.

The Rude Pundit, whose fantasy answers to fantasy debate questions pretty much make me laugh until I throw up, focuses his attention on the smart side of the stage.

So what do you think will happen tonight? Attack-dog generic lines? Blank stares? "Welp, Gwen..."-fest? I wonder how many times she'll say "y'know." Or "in what sense?"

Fran just emailed this link to an NPR poll that asks whether you think Sarah Palin is qualified to be VP, adding that apparently the repugs found out about it and are flooding the poll with "yes" votes. When I voted just now, it was tied at 49% with 0% "not sure." As if! Click on this link and stop the madness.

Given how low the bar has been set, of course she's qualified for VP. That just means we're qualified to be philosopher kings and queens with unlimited power.

Sorry. Too elitist?

Sorghum Crow said...

Qualified? No. No. No. Send her back to the frozen north so she can keep us safe from the mean old Russkis.

I only hope they run it on the radio, because I won't be home tonight to see the carnage myself.

FranIAm said...

Oh man- Rude Pundit.

How I laughed.

FranIAm said...

And that effing poll is always at 49.

Diebold must be running that poll.

I am afraid that I am about to make the same mistake I made for the Obama McCain debate which is/was to drink too much wine and scream at the television.

I better go eat some bread.

Crow--let's hope!

Enc--was it on NPR?

Fran--I love Rude Pundit! And you're right, the poll is rigged.

Jess--scream on!
