Yes, I am DYING to see the VP debate tonight. Sick of all the lowered expectations/raised expectations talk, etc. Maybe Palin is better in front of a crowd than in any of the many interviews she's flubbed this past week. One pundit claimed that all she has to do tonight is be chirpy and remind the nation why they fell in love with her in the first place.

WHICH IS WHY? BECAUSE AMERICANS ARE STUPID HAT THEY ARE EASILY MANIPULATED BY A WELL-WRITTEN SPEECH? It sure worked for Bush. (In fact, it was his speech writer who crafted her wildly popular RNC debut.

But her recent interviews have proved that she can't name a magazine she reads (not even Highlights?), can't name a Supreme Court case other than Roe Vs Wade (I couldn't either, but I'm not running for office), and doesn't know what the Bush doctrine is. But when that mythical phone rings at 3:00 AM with an international crisis and McCain's old ass has kicked the bucket and she's president, I feel confident that if she doesn't have the answers, she'll "go get some and bring 'em to ya" as she told Katie Couric. Katie must worship Palin, since her show's lack-luster ratings must be through the roof with Couric/Palin interview teasers shown all day on every news channel for a week now. If that thing ever does become president, she'll make a fine argument for women NOT receiving equal pay.

Now the bitch is trying to ignore her large fortune and pass herself off as a regular ol' Joe 6-pack who is being unfairly picked on by the mean ol' asking-them-hard-questions-again-on-purpose GOTCHA liberal media. (Please! Even republicans are slamming her--some demanding that she step down.) Maybe I'm naive, but at this point, I don't even think Joe 6-pack wants to see Joe 6-pack run the country. For some reason, in this country, the poor vote rich. IDIOT ALERT: unless you make over $250,000, you are not going to benefit from MCCain's tax cuts! But even a fundamentalist simpleton who wants Palin elected because he fantasizes about f#cking her must realize on some level, the problems facing this country are so complex and plentiful that a Jane 6-pack just ain't gonna get it this time. Duh, after 8 years of simpleminded Bush, the least popular president ever. Who came into office with a huge surplus--and look at our economy now--as of last night, we're paying to bail out...gulp...financial institutions? Hey, I'm happy for as many democratic votes as possible, but it sickens me that people are choosing their president based on their pocket-books. The senseless killing in Iraq or the trillions it cost doesn't bother this "christian" nation, but let those gas prices inch up and suddenly our greedy, soulless heads come out the sand to protest. Anyway, that's another rant altogether.



Mike Judge, the creator of King of the Hill and Beavis & Butthead, once told a story on Letterman about how, one day, his Joe Six-pack next-door neighbor was inexplicably removing the back windshield from a 1978 Chevy Nova.
So Judge walked out to the parking lot of his apartment building and asked the neighbor, "What are you doing?" And the neighbor gleefully answered, "Huh-huh-huh! Huh-huh! Now it's like a truck!"

In the freakishly hamfisted world of Sarah Palin, Mike Judge's neighbor is qualified to be vice president of the United States.

Yesterday, Palin said the following to talk radio wingnut Hugh Hewitt:

"Oh, I think they're just not used to someone coming in from the outside saying you know what? It's time that a normal Joe Six-pack American is finally represented in the position of vice presidency, and I think that that's kind of taken some people off guard, and they're out of sorts, and they're ticked off about it.

There's so much awfulness in this quote, it's difficult to know where to begin. Out of sorts? Ticked off? Oh you betcha.
