“Yes, because Palin hasn’t been too quick with her responses so far, and Biden is bound to say something he’ll regret. So it should be fun to watch.”

Photo of Dave Barker

“Yes, I am. I want to see how Governor Palin responds to the questions asked and how Biden reacts to her answers, whether he’ll hold back or be more aggressive.”

Photo of Emily Owens

“Definitely not, because I think Sarah Palin is an idiot.”

Photo of Stephen Rupp

“Yes, I am more interested. I guess primarily I want to see how Palin will disagree with her previously stated positions, and also to see how she will carry herself and handle the pressure.”

autie:"I've been a judge at some debates contests. Sarah just got her a** handed to her. Oh my God..if anybody has a half a brain..vote for Obama. please:This thing was kind of like watching Sondra Bolluck in Ms. Congeniality.."That's not what they're saying in the post-debate commentaries. Even PBS's Mark Shields and CNN's Paul Begala said Palin did an excellent job. Those are Obama supporters.And wouldn't someone with half a brain know how to spell Sandra Bullock's name correctly? (Of course, if you had seen that movie you would know that Bullock's character initially gave an intelligent answer, but then realized she had to wish for world peace, just like the other contestants.)

Palin is a man, baby!( and, BTW, "Truthteller," that was an overwhelmingly unattractive comment. )

Has anyone else noticed that those who oppose Palin are overwhelmingly unattractive women and effeminate men? Emily from Downers Grove is definitely part of the former group.

I've been a judge at some debates contests. Sarah just got her a** handed to her. Oh my God..if anybody has a half a brain..vote for Obama. please...This thing was kind of like watching Sondra Bolluck in Ms. Congeniality..how many times did she say "I wanna put the government back on the people's side, and get rid of the greed and corruption on Wall Street and in Washington." and she said it a lot....and maverick..she had said it like six time so far..and again, greed and corruption on wall sreet.. is this change? I think, hells NO!!!

Not wasting my time with the silly debate. They all tell us what we want to hear & then do whatever they want when they get into office. They are all a bunch of liars anyway. The one with the most money will win because they can buy more TV time & newspaper space. I say vote for anybody but the the 2 major party candidates.

Darn it, I missed the fun for awhile. So I'm thinking..after reading so many post by Mr. I...he must be a slight built man about 60..wearing jean overalls and either a John Deere cap or one of those Cat Diesel Power caps..false teeth, weather worn face, thining to no hair and JC Penny work boots..Now me on the other hand...just like Dusty Rhodes..I'm sooo pretty. PS. sunflower, I got the facial hair thing goin on too..and personally I like the smart pretty hippie looking types. That's why I married my wife.

I've seen Palin debate when she ran for governor and she was great. If she does great tonight, the press will report that Biden is the winner because Obama is their man (even the moderator's man). It's okay, the American people will believe the press because they are idiots. Most of our younger adults actually get the news from the left leaning Daily Show and they think Saturday Night Live is funny. They are so deprived of good humor.

We are wasting trillions of dollars making the world "safe for democracy" and look at what we have here. We get to choose our president but the only choices that are fairly presented are the republican and democrat. Its like telling someone they get to choose what to eat for dinner as long as it is either pea soup or liver and onions. Add in the greens, independents, libertarians, and the constitution party then I'll watch. Palin and Biden both suck.

sunflower_sue 5 years, 6 months ago

invictus, I, for one, have never called Palin dumb. I think that she is just utterly ignorant. There is a difference. I also think that women can be both smart and gorgeous. I've met several OTSers that have proven that. Also, ugly women can be quite dumb. As can ugly men. Conversely, all gorgeous men are dumb. Nah! Just kiddin ya! Cute dudes can be smarticle too. (As long as they have facial hair.) ;) Kiddin!

I can deduct which category you fall into. I guess "bombshell" is an ironic name?

I hear that fangorn has a great recipe for blueberry pancakes. I would have some of those for sure. And for sure I will be watching the debate. Now which debate will I watch, you may ask. Biden and Palin or Harper, Layton, Elizabeth May and Stephan Dion. They are all on the tube tonight. You may not know, you yanks, but we canucks don't actually get to cast a vote for our Prime Minister. The party that elects the most members of parliament forms the government and the party leader is the Prime Minister. I just vote for my local constituent man on the ballot. Quite a different system than for you people.

bombshell 5 years, 6 months ago

Invictus - unfortunately, Palin does not fall in the smart and pretty category. She falls in the pretty and manipulative and unworldly idiotic category.

0

invictus 5 years, 6 months ago

Why do ugly women think that pretty women are automatically less intelligent than they are? I guess they cling to the hope there is some kind of fairness in the universe. I hate to break it to you, but some people are ugly and dumb while others are pretty and smart.

Palin will give several non-answers to the questions filled with platitudes that the idiots among us will eat up. Then the media will declare the debate a rousing success for her because she managed not to drool on herself. Meanwhile Biden will give thoughtful answers and the media will rip him for being boring. Our "debates" are pointless when the media/viewers focus on everything EXCEPT what the candidates are actually saying.

After the debate, she'll teach Biden to shoot a Long Bow and skin a Moose.

Let's see...Presidential debate interest level: 0.Vice presidential debate interest level: 0.So ... no, not really. But, like Jonas, I'm really looking forward to reading seventy hundred conflicting reports on the debate. See, televised political debates are like figure skating: the scoring is subjective and doesn't make a lot of sense, so you can never really know who won.

No. Give me the meat of the Presidential debates over the potato of the vp debates any day. I wonder if Palin will be asked why she thinks so many American students can't locate the United States on a map.

To see how she does after the training hiatus in Sedona..The Cinderella story vs. the old Washington insider.. Some how I believe despite the coaching and cramming for the test, she will trip up along the way and provide some good comedic relief for this here election.

jonas 5 years, 6 months ago

No, I figure I'll wait until its over and get a clear and unbiased view of what actually occurred from the posters on the thread about the debate. Palin will be an idiot yet eloquently understated (oh, and hot!), Biden will be a hardened veteran yet a blabbering fool, the moderator will be totally biased yet fair, and both Palin and Biden will win and lose.
