Since Obama had borrowed a couple of good lines from the movie The American President, I was hoping that the 1st debate last Fri. also had a little West Wing in it. As in, 2002 episode, when Martin Sheen’s president was having to face off against the Republican from FLA, played by James Brolin, here’s the quote: “In case you were wondering, "Crime... boy, I don't know," is when I decided to kick your ass.” I was hoping that Obama could've whispered a similar sweet nothing into grandpa’s dishonorable ear. Maybe he did; and maybe that's why mcsneer was so lacking in common human decency.
But this week's VP debate, Biden's in a real pickle. We know from Palin's 'interviews' w/ gibby and katie, 2 tough tyrants of the media, that she can't think for herself, b/c she's been too busy cramming. SNL's opener this weekend had Tina Fey again, and some of the script was taken literally from palin's own crap-fest w/ couric.
It's not like Joe can look at the moderator and the camera and say, "WTF? I can't respond b/c I have no F-in idea what she's talking about!" Anything like that and mcangry will cry sexism (-- our highest rated HHHHHighpocrisy for mcnuts' campaign claiming she's qualified and ready to be anything but hockey mom and then not letting her out of the cage -- ). And b/c Joe has his own gaffe-track, he can mess up even w/o palin goading him. how does he attack w/o being patronizing, at the same time all he really needs to do is let her bury herself?!? he's in a no-win situation. just like obama will be slammed for being too nice and thoughtful and respectful, when that's exactly who he is, biden may still get slammed if he's the opposite. so how does he expose the fraud that is palin?
