The Lady in the Lake
I watched part of the debate last night, even though I promised myself I wouldn't. My dad and I sat there dumbfounded, sometimes laughing, sometimes just staring blankly at the TV. It made me sick to my stomach. Just watching her (who did better then expected, but still has no clue whats going on) made me so nervous, because i KNOW there are "joe six packs" and "hackey moms" out there going "shes just like me!!" WELL THATS THE PROBLEM! i dont want YOU running the country. I want someone who has a good head on their shoulders and knows what deregulation is!! I want someone who can ANSWER A QUESTION in a debate. Not say "well, i'm not so intent on answering questions, but I just want to talk directly to the American people" THAT'S WHAT INTERVIEWS ARE FOR LADY!
I came to like Joe Biden (or OBiden as she kept calling him) but still think he's that really smart kid in class who just can't talk to girls. He was a lot more educated then her. SHE DOESN'T THINK THAT GLOBAL WARMING IS MAN MADE!!!! DUH it's man made. If we didn't exist, do you think all the animals and plant life would be burning through oil like this? Maybe she missed that discovery channel special that shows what would happen to the world if we all disappeared (basically, everything would get better)
here are some highlights of what the new had to say about her
CNN (Bob Schneider): Palin’s answers do not lack confidence, they lack coherence.
Washington Post (Chris Cillizza): Palin: Worst spot in the debate. Looking down at her notes a lot. Really struggling.
TIME: This closing statement sounds like she's giving a speech to the College Republicans. It's really amateur hour.
MSNBC Chris Matthews 10:35 PM: "Not only did she say I'm not going to do any more interviews, it seemed, but she was saying, I'm not going to listen to uh Gwen Ifill tonight. She said I'm not going to uh give the answers the moderator wants to ask for. What an extraordinary statement. I'm not going to play by the rules and when I get elected I want more power in the office than it's had before. Hmm.. Not too much humility here.
