Kinda early AMIRITE? but we've all been waiting for this so... early is as early does

I've never gone to Gawker for political commentary, but they're right with this:

If we may respectfully disagree with everyone on Earth, Joe Biden will do fine. The expectations are so ridiculously low for Sarah Palin that smart people know any half-competent performance will be met with cheers and audible relief and the nation will love her again. But you know what? That's all meta-expectations gaming for Biden.

It is now a truth universally acknowledged that Joe will be boorish and say a thousand stupid things and he'll be mean and condescending and no one will like him. But no one seems to remember that ol' gaffey Joe gets away with all of his thousands of gaffes not just because he's been around forever, but also because he seems like a nice guy! He's genial when he says 7/11s are full of Indians! He's friendly even when attacking John McCain! He was great and funny and succinct in primary debates!

Sarah Palin will ramble and make no sense and spout talking points and platitudes and Joe Biden will be well-informed and maybe have a couple zingers and a couple crazy unfortunate misstatements and, like the first presidential debate, the punditry will say the Republican won and the viewers will decide which one they want to see on TV for the next four years and go with the Democrat. So calm down, liberals.

Every time Palin...

Tells that story about a plane or cook take a shot
Says she can see Russia from her house take a shot
Talks about Putin or Russia in general take a drink (a shot would kill you)
Mentions lipstick at all take a shot
Talks about the PTA take a shot
Makes a bad joke about O'Biden take a drink
Calls McCain and herself Mavericks or reformers take a drink
Says something completely incoherent take a drink
Says "Dontcha know" finish whatever you've been drinking

If Biden...
Makes your heart swoon take a drink
Talks about riding the train take a shot
Renders Palin helpless take a drink
Makes a gaffe that everyone on Fox News will freak out about, but is really meaningless take a shot

Add your own now!

jodifer NEWS FLASH: Palin to visit EPCOT!2nd-Oct-2008 10:31 pm (UTC)
ORLANDO, FL—Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin sought to silence those who have criticized her lack of foreign affairs experience Tuesday by announcing plans for a weeklong, 10-nation tour of Walt Disney World's Epcot. According to Palin, the trip—her first past Frontierland—will include speaking engagements at Norway's famous Viking ride, sausages at Germany's Kaufhaus, and, time permitting, a fact-finding mission to Future World. "This ambitious trip should finally demonstrate that I am ready to assume the vice presidency, whether by standing in long lines at Morocco's Tangierine Café or by sitting down face-to-face with Mexico's Three Caballeros," Palin announced during a campaign stop outside a Chinese restaurant in Tulsa, OK. "All of our neighbors deserve good diplomacy, from the Universe of Energy down to the French pavilion." Palin also promised a visit to the American Adventure exhibit before returning home, adding that she hoped to learn more about her own nation and the diverse peoples within.

The best thing about truly idiotic politicians: they bring out the satirists in full winning force. :D

I still cannot get over this stupid game on the official McCain/Palin page on Facebook.

If it wasn't for this community, I wouldn't be as excited to watch the debate. Most of my friends either don't care about U.S. politics or are sick of them, so I usually watch these debates by myself. It really helps reading all the comments and knowing that I'm not alone in being amused, surprised, angered, baffled, and proud. This community really gives me a sense of, erm, community.
zgirl714 2nd-Oct-2008 10:55 pm (UTC)
ia, bb. My friends totally ditched me before the debate so I watched by myself and ate the big chip platter that I had made for what was suppose to be a debate party. :(
kewljules00799 2nd-Oct-2008 10:48 pm (UTC)
Guys, I can't watch the debate if I don't get at least three of the five pages of my ethics paper written...MOTIVATE ME, PLEASEEEEEEEEE.

(I have 0 pages at the moment.)
thruyourveins 2nd-Oct-2008 10:50 pm (UTC)
