Like it’s not troubling enough that my husband has a crush on Sarah Palin. Now he is convinced that the feelings are mutual.
You know all that winking she did at the camera last night?
Rick, honey, I don’t know how to break this to you but she wasn’t winking at you. She was winking at the American people because doggone it, she’s fighting for them.
Of course, Joe Biden promises to do that too. Just with far less eye twitching.
I really thought Biden got into a groove during the debate, especially when it came to the subject of foreign policy.
You know what guy I’m talking about, right? Biden? He was the one on the stage with Sarah Palin. Off to the left. Oh, I’m absolutely sure you saw him. The one with the nice smile. Well, trust me, he rocked it on the topics of Iraq and the fight against terrorism.
The governor of Alaska certainly avoided any major missteps and held her own last night. The debate structure kept her from being challenged much, even when she completely avoided answering questions or gave vague, confusing and awkwardly phrased answers.
Like when the moderator tried to ask her about bankruptcy courts and Palin answered, “I want to talk about, again, my record on energy versus – your ticket’s energy – ticket also.”
I would have preferred more back and forth between the two candidates so we could have actually gotten some substantive information, and not as much rehearsed campaign rhetoric from the two of them.
Frankly, I think the McCain campaign should take a page from “Singing in the Rain” and hire someone to secretly dub in a different voice over Palin’s. (Note to Senator McCain: Debbie Reynolds is still alive and well.)
Palin is very telegenic but I just find her voice so terribly grating and snarky. Throw in those folksy phrases and she just doesn’t seem like my kind of vice president.
Not to mention president.
Nearly one in three vice presidents go on to become the president.
John McCain is 72 years-old, with recurring melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.
President Sarah Palin.
See why this election is so important?
