In case you haven't seen it yet, here's the Palin interview fer ya. Yes, it's as bad as you've heard.

Yikes. Thing is, her Gibson interview was...less bad than I'd been led to believe. The whole "Bush doctrine" kerfuffle was silly (there is no single thing that is a "Bush doctrine").
You know, you put a camera and microphone in front of me and ask me to talk about an issue, and I'll come off as a fool, and that's understandable and human. But it also means I'm probably not ready to be vice-preznit!

I can't wait for the VP debates.
"When the stock market crashed, Franklin D Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened'."
I suppose if Palin said that, the left would be jumping up and down with glee. Since Biden said that, its ignored or excused away as .."oh that's just Joe...haha"
I think the VP debate will provide us with several one liners for years to come whether they come from Palin or Biden.

I think you're right, Tim. I actually meant to post that Biden quip and forgot (most likely due to my admitted bias).
Biden shoots his mouth off, no doubt about it. The difference being that when he does it's USUALLY (obviously not ALWAYS) grounded in sound advice and backed by facts. But yeah, sometimes he just says crazy shit.
This debate should be a doozy. Will Biden try to make her look stupid? Will she come in uncharacteristically prepared and coherent? Will they make out on stage???

Who knows what we'll get from Biden, he can be pretty direct to say the least, even if that includes some bumbling with a detail or two. Palin, if she's coached properly, will not actually answer a single question, but her responses will diverge immediately to pre-packaged talking points.

it will be interesting, no doubt... the most entertaining debate since Dan Quayle and Lloyd Bentsen.

Remember the Admiral from '92 (Perot's #2)? That guy was great.

Oh man, I do remember him. Phil Hartman did a great impersonation of him too.
