I am just interested in the Biden/Palin debates. There is already a drinking game started for how many times she uses the first name of either Biden or the moderator. I guess she learned that at Mayorin' school.
"Charlie" was looking down his nose at her, reading glasses and all, just like an old fashioned schoolmarm; and it was my take that she was just keeping old "Charlie" in his place. "I am governor. You are commoner!" "Hear me roar!"

She looks pathetically uncomfortable in the clip from the opening post. I hope for her sake, that was the worst of it.

We haven't seen shit. She looked like Sarah Connor in Terminator 2 trying to convince the mental hospital that she was "all better now". When the smiley face comes off and it's down to acting like people aren't watching, she'll turn 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue into the biggest fucking outhouse the world has ever seen.

But I do have to say that Republicans have feigning ignorance down pat. I have never seen a group that has been able to stay in character for over a decade like that.

What I'm surprised nobody is talking about was her comment that she would support war with Russia if Georgia should be admitted to NATO and then attacked again. Doesn't she understand the Russians at all? I thought part of her foreign policy credentials was Alaska's proximity to Russia?
The Russia/Georgia comment was just about too scary to even comment on. I didn't think anyone would bring us closer to a fresh new Cold War that the moron that is Bushie. Apparently I was wrong.

Charlie was the Republican PICK to throw her softballs. He was the only pick THEY allowed [so far]. And the "looking down" didn't start until she showed just how out of touch she was.

If she was trying to keep ol' Charlie in his place she failed. Maybe she should practice on the local media for a few years before trying out world leaders who won't give her a second chance or explain her misunderstandings. They would just take advantage of her - and the country. Nice position you Republicans are trying to put the country in. Strategery Two.

The Russia/Georgia comment was a direct, honest and accurate response to ol' Charlie's question about what if they were part of NATO. What the hell should she have said? "To hell w/ them!" Or "We need to have a conversation?" All she said was that we might be expected to help...

You cannot take advantage of someone who is qualified and ready to sit in the big chair. If you don't have all the answers, you simply aren't ready.

It's not sexist to discuss Republican ignorance.

Nor in making a joke about bush and bikini waxing. That joke works just as well if it was a male being interviewed as it was not directed AT her, just her intelligence and failure to know ANYTHING about the BUSH Doctrine [which she supports but doesn't know it].

Note the chasm of difference.

Other examples.

But you realize that "HELP" means going to war, even on a limited basis with Russia don't you? She is already writing checks we as a country can't cash. We don't have the troop strength, home support or strategic reasoning to make those comments.

You can't possibly want another Cold [or Hot]War with Russia? The options regarding that scenario are ALL zero sum gain.
