Liveblogging the VP Debate

Posted in oh FFS, Opinion by yliza on October 2, 2008

10:00pm:  Sarah Palin is lying like a rug.  Oh, and she can’t pronounce “nuclear”.  Who coached her, Bush?

As usual, Palin is expressing the idea of “change” and “regulation”, completely ignoring the fact that the Republicans have been in charge for the last 8 years.  She also repeats stupid lines like “they hate our freedom”.

Biden got in a few nice hits.  He pointed out McCain’s record on the Iraq war and diplomacy with…Spain.  But shame on you and Obama both for not supporting gay marriage!

Palin:  lie lie lie.  She’s a lying sack.  Been there, done that, don’t need another.

She spouts the party line about Iraq: victory, Petraus, central front in the War on Terror.  Hey, Sarah!  Bin Laden isn’t in Iraq, he’s in Pakistan!  Idiot.

If she says “maverick” again I might break the TV.  Maverick my ass!  McCain and Palin represent the status quo.  Just saying it doesn’t make it so.

Where’s the question about womens’ issues?

10:18pm: Palin thinks the VP isn’t part of the executive branch?  She shouldn’t refer to the constitution, since she clearly doesn’t know anything about it.

Biden DOES know the consitution.  And yes, the VP is part of the executive branch.  SMACKDOWN!  SCORE!!

Go Biden!  The maverick label is horse pucky.   Tell it!

So…how is appointing your best friends from high school to government positions bipartisan, Governor Palin?  Lying sack.  Oh, did I mention she’s a liar?

Oooh take a dig at the mainstream media.  You’re going to fight for me, Governor Palin?  You want to do something for me?  Drop out of the race, kthx~

They’re going to say she won the debate because she didn’t puke or pee on herself.  I expected no less from her, though.  She’s ambition incarnate, narcissistic, and a skilled liar.

My take: this did not help the McCain ticket.  She spewed a lot of talking points but avoided answering a lot of the questions.  Just saying “We’re going to change things/shake things up” and giving no details isn’t very convincing, especially when your running mate is part of the status quo.  Anyone who thinks she did well was probably already going to vote for McCain.

Okay, maybe I shouldn’t liveblog.  Or maybe I should drink next time.

I’m off.  Gotta donate some more money to Obama.
