Sarah Palin prepares for the debate


No, actually we're being told it's all a setup and Palin will be snarky and brilliant and clever. Don't underestimate her perkiness saving the day.

Mad Kane takes her down a peg:
Sarah Palin, who likes to refer to herself as “Joe Six Pack“, is trying to dupe us into believing she’s “an everyday, working-class American.” Palin even claims that her “Joe Six Pack” status is why “the Washington elite” don’t think she should be running for Veep. (Apparently it has nothing to do with her making Dan Quayle look like a genius and George Bush look coherent.)
They want us to think she'd be fun to have a beer with? ... Didn't they say that about the last guy?


Eureka Springs of Firedoglake:

You might be an idiot if:

You nominate the former head of The Harper Valley P.T.A. to be Vice President of the United States.

You keep meeting up with Katie Couric.

You graduated with a degree in journalism, but can't name one newspaper you've read.

You don't understand the source or value of your husband's Union provided health care benefits.

You think your friend of 30 years "made a choice" to be gay.

This is going to be interesting...

Palin will be snarky

I hope so. Her snark comes across as petty and rude. And I certainly hope she starts mocking press elitism like she did with Katie Couric.

What else does she have? A superficial smattering of facts, a bunch of Republican talking points, a perky attitude and snark.

Snark doesn't protect the wallets of Americans, which is one reason why we've stopped talking about pitbulls, pigs and lipstick and started really really paying attention to what Capitol Hill is doing with our money.

A beer with her? Not even at Oktoberfest. Hemlock? Maybe.

Moose blood shake?

Mad Kane said...

Thanks so much for the mention.

I don't know about you, but I plan to be on the lookout for a hidden earpiece tonight. If Palin sounds even remotely coherent at the debate, it would be hard to think of any other explanation.

Thank you for the quality work you do, Mad Kane! And I hadn't thought about an ear piece... the box won't have to go on her back, she can hide it in her hairdo....

I'll drop this in over at your place, Mad Kane, but Monkeyfister thinks she WAS wired last night!
