Keith,

Let me save you the time and write what you will be writing:

Palin stupid

Biden God

Palin Stupid

Obama God

Palin Stupid

Obama God

Palin stupid

Biden God

rinse, repeat about 40 times and there you go

And don't forget to play the Sarah Palin drinking game.
.
Here's how it works...
.
One shot for every time she adds the word 'there' or 'here' to a sentence. (Her Alaska accent is actually mid-candadian, so expect stuff like: 'we have to fight, you know, the inflation there')
.
One shot for every time she dodges an answer by repeating the question and then changing the subject
.
One shot for every time she uses the word "maverick" or "energy"
.
Finish the bottle if she vomits on the podium or goes running off the stage.

I am sure there will be zingers galore. But why is the moderator black. Whew. 15% of the population and they are everywhere on American TV. Everywhere. Anyone who supports Obama needs to live in Philadelphia or Chicago for a month to see America's future under him. Actually, I would like Pahlin and Putin to go hunting to see who is a better shot. Seriously, a resurgent Russia sending Tu160 supersonic, strategic, nuclear city destroying bombers to Latin America needs to be discussed. Next is the ship Peter the Great. Monroe Doctrine violation?! This debate should be better than Obama/McCain, where Obama tried to sound hawkish, even though he is left of Jimmy Carter. Biden was a terrible choice. Hillary vs Pahlin would have been more interesting.

Let's not forget this is the nation that elected the Texan cowboy George Dubya Bush who is really a silver spoon fed, spoiled, East coast establishment, Yalie, good for nothing son of one of the most corrupt robber baron families in the country.

Frank@Scottsdale-Sucks.com said...

All political debates are rehearsed sound bites....

And this one is pointless since vice-presidential debates have zero effect on the election.

Having said that, it'll be interesting. You have Biden, who has the very look of a shyster, then Palin, the mom, then the racist moderator who is openly pushing for an Obama victory.

F-cked up debate, anyone?

What's even scarier is to think that McCain chose this person as his VP running mate, and that he is only barely trailing Obama in the poles.

Now, I don't have a preference for either of these two candidates, but McCain has clearly lost his mind - and Palin never had a mind to begin with.

Those who back McCain have other reasons why they would prefer him over Obama - it's certaintly not intelligence.

Well, we made a mistake 2-times with Busch Co. (although he would have hijacked the Presidency a second term if he had to), so let's vote intelligently this time around.

The VP debates tonight should be interesting. definitely entertaining.

Grab some hot-buttered popcorn while supplies last.

Excerpt from the debate:

Moderator: Gov. Palin, do you agree with VP Cheney that deficits don't matter?

Palin: That’s why I say I, like every American I’m speaking with, were ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health-care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy, helping the—it’s got to be all about job creation, too, shoring up our economy and putting it back on the right track. So health-care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans. And trade, we’ve got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive, scary thing. But one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today, we’ve got to look at that as more opportunity. All those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that."

Frank@Scottsdale-Sucks.com said...

On Palin's alleged stupidity, it's interesting that after she was overwhelmingly accepted by the American people following her convention speech and pushed up McCain's poll numbers, she has been effective censored by the media ever since.

If she were really that stupid and incompetent, she'd get endless coverage like Dan Quayle did in 1988.

Oh well, it's a moot point anyway, because VP debates don't matter in an election.

keith said...

Frank, Frank, Frank, please please please tell me you don't believe that.

Palin was not "censored". She hasn't held a single press conference. Zero. Not one. And she's granted a handful of interviews.

McCain's campaign censored her. Shamefully.

Drop her Frank. Join your fellow GOPers Fareed Zakaria, George Will, Peggy Noonan and more, and call for her to step aside.

Your party will be much better off if McCain replaces her. It's shameful to see people still supporting her. Rise up. Reform your party. Stand up for your country.

She read a pre-written speech at the GOP convention. She's not smart. She's frankly an idiot. You have much, much, much better choices for VP.

Or just go down with the ship. And witness the death of a political party.

There is a surreal quality lately to the blogs, the TV, the radio, the newspapers. The entire world economy is crumbling and we are so looking forward to this debate to see who gets humiliated for a laugh and a jeer.

Reminds me of the Christians in the Coliseum being thrown to the Lions,while the clueless, doomed Romans cheered and roared as their empire crumbled around them.

Got my cash safe.

Anybody paying any attention at all to what is happening, doesn't give a rat's ass about Entertainment Tonight.

ST. LOUIS — Sarah Palin plans to go on the attack in tonight’s debate, hitting Joe Biden for what she will call his foreign policy blunders and penchant for adopting liberal positions on taxes and other issues, according to campaign officials involved in prepping her for tonight’s showdown.

The Palin camp is projecting surprising self-confidence in the pre-debate hours, despite the vice presidential nominee’s uneven — and, at some points, peculiar — performances in recent television interviews, the officials say. Top advisers to John McCain privately say Palin’s recent CBS interview was a borderline disaster, especially since it played out in several segments over several days. Tonight will be different, they say.

“This is going to finally put her back into a position where we see her like we saw her the first couple weeks,” a McCain official said. “She was herself. She was authentic, and people related to that. ... Tonight, she’ll get into a rhythm. You’re going to see her in a way that you haven’t seen her yet.”

The debate is nothing more than a distraction from the real issue ... the fleecing of the US tax-payer.

Keith (or someone), provide a link to the most current "bail-out" legistation so that everyone can really see where the 700bil+ will be going - IT'S ALL ABOUT PORK FOR THE WEALTHY.

As a business owner, I can understand the pain that other business owners may feel in regard to tightening credit, but this legislation is not only criminal but ultimately destructive to the US economy.

Mr. Buffer commented that what is happening now in the market is analogous to Pearl Harbor ... someone slept (or was busy trading stocks) through US History 101.

There is nothing about the crisis now in our economy that wasn't foretold years ago - and now it's hit us smack in the face.

** MCCAIN ADMITS DEFEAT! **

McCAIN CUT AND RUNS FROM FIRST STATE!!!!!

*** NEWS FLASH *** 10/2/08

WASHINGTON - Republican presidential candidate John McCain conceded battleground Michigan to the Democrats on Thursday, GOP officials said, a major retreat as he struggles to regain his footing in a campaign increasingly dominated by economic issues.

These officials said McCain was pulling staff and advertising out of the economically distressed Midwestern state. He also canceled a visit slated for next week. Michigan, with 17 electoral votes, voted for Democrat John Kerry in 2004, but Republicans had poured money into an effort to try to place it in their column this year.
**********************************

If McCain cant handle the ECONOMIC ISSUES in the State of Michigan, than how in the hell can he handle the other 49 states in the hole too???

What a sissy-boy! F*CK YOU MCCAIN!

BWAAAAA!!!!! Republicans are criminals anyway. Good-by Palin. Good-bye McCain, Bush-Co and Dick-head ass-fvck Cheney. Isnt he in prison yet?

I've sworn off television (except mlb playoffs) so I'm not watching this. Still, having a blast reading your commentary. And I can tell what's happening.

To be honest, I didn't want to watch because I thought Palin would be embarrassingly, excruciatingly bad. From all your comments I guess I was wrong.

Still, VP debates don't really matter and I still say Obama wins even when Biden loses this debate.

And I still say the election itself matters about as much as the mlb playoffs when neither major candidate has the tools or the guts to address our problems appropriately.

Nucular is an ad hoc spelling of an incorrect pronunciation of the word nuclear, representing the IPA: /ˈnjuːkjələr/ (NEW-cue-lurr) pronunciation of that word instead of the correct /ˈnjuːkliːɚ/ (NEWK-lee-urr).

This pronunciation is unacceptable, although some dictionaries recognize it because of its increasing usage.[1]

We should have a TV show... Obama and the Windbag. :)

Like Chico and the man

sandman said...

OK .. so Windbag scored one... Cheney shot someone he is the most dangerous..

If you're scoring the debate, Biden is killing her. She isn't debating, she's saying the same thing over and over - no substance and no backing of her claims.

If you're talking about who looks more likable or cuter then yeah, Palin wins. This isn't a beauty contest, it is a debate. She's getting destroyed.

The Dems blew this one B-I-G time!! Plus she is a good BSer. Plus she looks better on camera. Decision goes to the perky Palin.

I expected Biden to mop the floor with her. Amazing.

sandman said...

It's almost over... but I'm still shocked.

"BEAUTY QUEEN BEATS WINDBAG"

That will be the headline tomorrow.


He has 20+ years in the Senate. She was Governor of Alaska. She beat him like a drum in a Rocky Balboa like upset....

Ifill is awful. Wardrobe choice even worse. Fashion police will be waiting outside to take her into custody.

patrat said...

He is right on the Cheney thing. Good point to bring up. If he is perceived as a loser, Americans will love him. The underdog. It might have been a plan.

Here's your 'real' dictionarites, jackass.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary:[3]

"Though disapproved of by many, pronunciations ending in [kjə.lə(ɹ)] have been found in widespread use among educated speakers, including scientists, lawyers, professors, congressmen, United States cabinet members, and at least two United States presidents and one vice president, who are, in other respects, educated. While most common in the United States, these pronunciations have also been heard from British and Canadian speakers."
Oxford English Dictionary:

"The colloquial pronunciation...has been criticized in usage guides since at least the mid-20th century, although it is now commonly given as a variant in modern dictionaries."
Oxford American Dictionary:

"A variant pronunciation...has been used by many, but is widely regarded as unacceptable."
American Heritage Dictionary:

"The pronunciation (noo'kyə-lər), which is generally considered incorrect, is an example of how a familiar phonological pattern can influence an unfamiliar one … [since] much more common is the similar sequence (-kyə-lər), which occurs in words like particular, circular, spectacular, and in many scientific words like molecular, ocular, and vascular."

It's wrong. It's considered 'acceptable' in some sources because so many retards say it the wrong way. You can probably relate well to them.

good one there from Biden.... those tears looked real to me...

Anonymous said...

Did Biden just say his house is his "total investment"?!?

Does anyone else interpret that as meaning everything he has? He has saved nothing, prepared for nothing? 100% un-HP.

watching said...

Genius:

sounds like she is makiing a lot of references and examples now!

Biden has been repeating the Demo matra all night.


What are you watching! yesterday's news?

keith said...

so how do republicans vote for a team that says they're going to take on their own party?

don't the republicans stand for anything besides winning?

I guess when you've wrecked america, you can't run on the same things that wrecked america

Ross said...

Good use of Reagan's, "There you go again," by Palin. My guess is that most undecided voters don't get the reference.

This is a win by Palin. Sorry Obama babies.

watching said...

Biden:
blah blah, repeat the same stuff Obama said, blah blah....

keith said...

the real show starts in 10 minutes - the spin room

fill me in on how that goes

Anonymous said...

genius, if you were a genius you would see you just posted a source that says both spelling are acceptable.

Read wht you copy/paste. You might learn something. How can you cite a reference, then say it is incorrect? And your source is wikipedia? Come on...

suzanne researched it... said...

When McCain calls himself the Maverick, it reminds me of when Beavis declares himself "The Great Cornholio" after drinking too much caffine. Only difference is Beavis may be brighter. WTF??

Ross said...

Keith,
Republicans did wreck this country in the last 8 years. Some blame goes to the last two year of Clinton.

That's why I'm voting for McCain/Palin. They are going to take down the neo-cons like Cheney and his band of thugs.

I'm a Gore and Kerry voter looking for real change. Go McCain!!!!!

sandman said...

will do.. here is what they say

"Beauty Queen wipes Windbag on the floor"

Will post a link before I retire.

This blog is hilarious.

"don't the republicans stand for anything besides winning?"

And the Demo's don't do the exact same thing?

Guess you haven't been listening to Pelosi lately..

Oh and how about the 10% Congress
approval rating?

tom12008 said...

It seems that there are reasons that Governors attain to the White House than Senators do, perhaps because the Chief Executive of a state is more analogous to the Presisdent of the United States than a member of the U.S. Senate is.
A governor must act not only as chief executive and policymaker, but a representative of the state and its people: he or she acts as a head of state, a figurehead.

McCain's campaign may have considered Palin's office as governor as a hedge against some sort of preceived "senatorial curse". Watching this debate, I can't help but think of how so many senators seem to have fallen into the same pitfalls troubling Senator Biden. I hope Senator Biden can connect and touch the audience before the night is over.

Genius said...

This thread is full of lose.

Enjoy the final minutes of the debate. I'd rather go pound some nails through my cock.

NUCULAR. lawl.

You guys can say whatever you want about Bill O'Reilly, but he's the only one busting the balls of Dodd and Barney Frank, continually asking them to step down. Here's Bill yelling at Barney Frank and calling him a coward on today's show. Barney Franks was pissed...bwahaha. Please post this video on your blog, Keith:

genius, you seem hung up on the way people talk.

That's common for 20-year olds. 20 years from now you won't care how people pronouce words, you will have met plenty of poliched book-smart people who are dumb as rocks.

Give it time...

The media already picked a winner last week for this debate. Biden is the winner, no need to watch Anderson Cooper, Chris Matthews, Olbermann, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, The View, etc. And no need to read the New York Times, LA Times, Washington Post, etc. They pick the winner in advance and shoved down your sheeple's throat. Democracy? Where?
