Shall we talk about "gaming the system", Senator McCain?
Posted by Jill | 9:35 PM
How about the way your campaign has insisted on a rule change for the Vice Presidential debate so that the appalling ignorance of your running mate won't be as obvious?
At the insistence of the McCain campaign, the Oct. 2 debate between the Republican nominee for vice president, Gov. Sarah Palin, and her Democratic rival, Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr., will have shorter question-and-answer segments than those for the presidential nominees, the advisers said. There will also be much less opportunity for free-wheeling, direct exchanges between the running mates.

McCain advisers said they had been concerned that a loose format could leave Ms. Palin, a relatively inexperienced debater, at a disadvantage and largely on the defensive.

So the McCain campaign insisted that their Vice Presidential candidate not have to actually debate, but instead may be asked a bunch of softball questions like "Piper: cute, really cute, or preposterousy cute".

Aren't lower standards to compensate against the disadvantage of a representative of a particular group something against which Republicans have railed for over a generation? Isn't that called "affirmative action", and don't Republicans always oppose it? Or is that OK too if you are a Republican?

Gov. Palin, do you support the No Child Left Behind progrsm?

I believe no child should be left behind.

Thank you, Gov.

Forrest Gump would be a better vice-president. At least he had dumb luck on his side.

Ms. Palin is a vast Black Hole of entitled, mean-spirited stupidity, an unearthly and terrifying anomaly that sucks all intelligence into her cold, black depths.

After eight years of Bush, Ms. Palin sounds like exactly what we need.

Here come the new Bullshit, same as the old Bullshit.

God help us.

I want Gov Palin to elaborate on
how her daughter became pregnant.
Seems like she failed at mothering
so now it's on to the federal
government to really screw that up.
Remember what Dick Cheney says
the Vice President is not accountable to anyone. Very Scary!
