Debate

I'm so unenthused about the political scene right now. All this bailout business has turned my brain to mush.

So, let's have a little fun today.

Tell me what you'd like to see happen in the debate on Thursday... and make it funny!

What would I like to see? Oh, I don't know... Sarah Palin walk on stage with a pitbull wearing lipstick... Joe Biden's teeth actually do one of those cartoon sparkles with the "tink" at the end... have them arm wrestle... Maybe they could break out in song. Yeah, that might make it a little more interesting.

Or... seriously, tell me what you think the Vice Presidential candidates need to say and tell me how important you think this particular debate is.

I watched the McCain/Obama debate on Fox - and it was clear the presenters were FAR more excited about the Palin/Biden debate. Which tells you something about this particular election!

I think in all likelyhood, Biden will tear poor old Sarah to peices. He's an old Democrat warpig, snarled up in decades of Capital Hill politics. This is the sort of thing he's an expert at.

Sarah, for all her strengths, hasn't done too well in the interviews she's had and doesn't fit the mould of the slimey Washington political reptile. Biden does - and that gives him the advantage.

I'd hope Palin pulls an upset, though, and manages to give as good as she gets. She's got a chance. Biden has a bit mouth on him and if she can play off the earnest and sweet 'soccer mom,' he'll come off very badly as a bully and a brute.

It'll be worth watching!

Welp, the Democrats and their media waterboys have made Sarah Palin out to be a blithering moron, so basically all she has to do is show up and everyone should be impressed. Kinda like we all were when Barry didn't show up nekkid with a bucket stuck on his head and a traffic cone stuck in his, well, you get the idea......

This looming debate reminds me of how all the newsfolks kept talking about the Lieberman/Cheney debate and we all know how that ended. Goodness gracious, there has never been, in the history of the world, such a mismatch of brain power. Cheney made Lieberman look like the unenthused milquetoast that he is. I didn't even tune in for the one between Cheney and John Edwards. That would have been like trying to watch software engineers do step aerobics.

I want Joe Biden to launch into one of his lies about his wife getting killed by a drunk driver, which was not true, or maybe that the Super Bowl Champion Pittsburg Steelers coming to his injured sons' room in the hospital two years BEFORE they won the Super Bowl, or him calling Barry "boy" some more and talking about how clean and articulate Barry is. Maybe Joe could talk about how he was the first in his family to go to college, that he graduated in the top of his law school class, or how he owns guns. All of which are untrue.

I also hope that Joe shows up wearing his Captain Gaffetastic superhero outift. If Joe will just be himself, then Barry's run for the presidency is basically over. Everyone with rudimentary reading and writing skills hates Joe.

I think that Palin needs to just be herself and talk with someone else's voice. Geez, how annoying is that Minnesota-like accent?

Two Dogs said...

And Roland, it's "hockey mom."

Sarah said...

hahahaha... I love you Miss K. Sarah needs to dazzle because of the little snafu with Katie Couric (not that it was all that bad, but you know the media...). It won't take much for her to wipe the floor with Joey. Wonder how many gaffe's he'll have? Oh, this is going to be the debate of the year I think. Because it'll at least be interesting...

Two Dogs said...

And ladies and gentleman, Sarah, the "Bizzaro Olbermann" chimes in.

See? I give everyone a hard time, regardless of ideology. Equal opportunity offender, that Two Dogs.

I'd like to see Sen. Biden and Gov. Palin come out in sumo suits and do a few belly bumps.

Switching to light sabers, they then go at each other in a best of three match.

After light sabers, a milkshake break during which they take questions from the viewing audience but only questions from kindergartners will be allowed (unfortunately, Katie Couric has already had her chance so she is ineligible).

Then, back to the contest, where each of them must attempt to scratch their nose and rub their stomach simultaneously while strapped into NASA's centrifuge and undergoing a minimum of 3 G's. If anyone vomits, they are disqualified.

A short chai tea break and then more questions from the audience, but only calls from citizens of states beginning with a vowel will be taken. All answers must be provided after inhaling helium or points will be deducted.

Then, to test their stamina and gravitas:

1. H-O-R-S-E
2. Putt putt golf
3. Chubby bunny

Finally, each of them must draw a question from a bin (all questions submitted beforehand by citizens of states ending in a consonant) and ask their opponent to answer it. Points will be deducted for the following answers:

1. It's Bush's fault.
2. It's Clinton's fault.

Sarah said...

Oh, come now. I only watch college football and I certainly look better than him. ;P

Two Dogs said...

What is "Chubby Bunny?"

And immediately there is a problem with the consonant only rule, of those twelve or thirteen states, only Kansas and Texas residents can read and write. That makes it hard to get questions submitted, because those people are out there trying to make a living.

Sarah said...

It's a game where you can die from ingesting too many marshmallows whilst trying to say really hard phrases to say with your mouth full. Sounds kinda like politics to me...

Two Dogs said...

Oh, but obviously The Other Sarah, you are in the tank for Palin as much as Olbermann is for the moron and the liar. Maybe you don't have a TV show called "The Moron Minute" or whatever his show is called, but you would be his arch nemesis.

Sarah said...

Perhaps so. I do seem to have a problem (not to put it in a bad light, I rather like it) with being the archnemesis of a plethora of people, politically, theologically and just in general.

Two Dogs said...

We have a game here in God's Country that is similar, you stuff your mouth full of crackers and try to whistle. It IS somewhat disgusting. Well, unless you like cracker gradoo all over your clothes and if you do, it is obviously Nirvana for you.

Sarah said...

And somehow I'm not surprised. Give inherently stupid people any kind of food and a little too much time...

Two Dogs said...

Oooooooo.

Coffee Bean said...

Y'all are cracking me up!!! And BLBeamer you win for most creative debate ideas!

And y'all be careful with little Sarah there... She's just 19 but she'll get ya. She's got a big girl brain and isn't afraid of the boys.

Two Dogs said...

Alls I'm saying is that if The Other Sarah wants to lead me, she better be tough enough to handle the carping that I dish out. Actually, I prefer a reasoned woman in a leadership role because I can just do that hair flip and talk in my sweet southern accent, batt my big ol' brown puppy dawg eyes, and they are PUTTY, PUTTY! I tell ya', in my grubby little paws.

Sarah said...

I like taking on the big dogs, no pun intended. How else can I grow as a speaker, a politico, etc? After ten years of politics, I think I can take quite a bit of crap that people want to dish out. I'd be bored if they didn't.

Two Dogs said...

It is fun to imagine a candidate going door to door and little, nine year old, The Other Sarah ambushes said candidate at the door. Finger all up in his grill, yelling about personal responsibility and tax cuts, with Ma and Pa in the background rolling their eyes and then, said candidate starts crying and runs away.

Today = yet another 11. Twelve 11's in a row in Mississippi. God loves us.

Sarah said...

Hehe... I wish that were a true story! I did campaign for a very controversial candidate in 2004 where I literally got chased of conservative republican's property (the guy I was working for, Doug Bruce, is a republican) by people's German shepherds. Talk about politics being life-threatening... ;)

Oh, and I made two politicians speechless today at a meeting. Go figure.
