Princess Sarah Palin faces off with Joe Biden in the one and only Vice-Presidential debate.  No bar has been set low enough for Princess Sarah.

Tip of the hat to the handsome and talented Distributorcap!

The debate will be moderated by Gwen Ifill, who is planning on publishing a book entitled “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama” around Inauguration Day.  Of course, that set off a Rush Limbaugh hissy fit of epic proportions.  Captain Underpants  John McCain had no objections to Ifill, but one of his campaign’s senior advisers said they would be ready to pounce if there were too many foreign policy questions, because it’s perfectly okay for a woman who wants to be a heartbeat away from the presidency to not know squat about the rest of the world.

From Jezebel:

Gwen Ifill moderated the 2004 debate between Vice President Dick Cheney and Senator John Edwards, asking a total of 20 questions. Ten of those questions were specifically about foreign policy — including the first 9 — while Cheney brought up foreign policy in two addition domestic policy questions and Edwards snuck it into one of his domestic policy answers. In the latter three cases, Edwards and Cheney responded to the other’s foreign policy forays in kind. That means that foreign policy discussions comprised two-thirds of the last Vice Presidential debate.

Okay kids, not too much longer. Get everything you need so you don’t have to leave your TV sets!

Now let’s get ready to rumble….

    nonnie, your creative genius has been working overtime this week! What a perfect warm-up to the big game tonight! I understand that Biden is favored to win by the odds-makers. I declined an invitation to a local tailgate party this evening…

    Since Palin is a hockey mom, I hope that using sports metaphors won’t lead to me being called a playground bully. But, here’s hoping Biden hits one out of the park, scores the most baskets, leads in touchdowns, makes more goals, and scores a TKO!

    Eating is my favorite sport. I am well prepared for the big spectacle. I baked a really, really big cake in the shape of AK. I formed my hummus to look like a moose. I cut up my pitas into stars like on the AK flag. I have five kinds of cheese in honor of Palin’s brood. Smoked salmon seemed appropriate. No Townhouse or Club crackers for my shindig – it’s Captain’s Wafers only. Ahoy, AK fisherman…

    And, lots and lots of beer. The door prize is a rape kit and a license to hunt wolves in AK! I hope Biden eats Sarah for lunch!

    Gotta go – it’s almost time for kickoff!

    And don’t forget the barf bags. They are needed to endure that much of Palinology. They’ll also come in handy listening to lineup of pundits afterwards all yelling over each other for their chance to bloviate hoping that somehow they stumble upon some well quoted gem that will forward their own careers in the corporate media.

    Nonnie, I love the BS flag.

  3. nightowl724

    Good point on the barf bags, jeb! And, on the BS flag!

  4. nightowl,
    what can i say? contempt inspires me. for most of the debate, i didn’t face the tv. i just listened instead. i missed her rolling her eyes and winking. i recorded it, so i will watch later.
    i think she came off as shrill and someone who can’t do much more than memorize talking points. she didn’t answer the questions asked. she made up her own questions and then answered herself.
    all the polls say that biden won, and it’s so much fun watching the rethugs on tv trying to twist it to say that she won.

  5. jeb,
    barf bags all around. even her folkiness was canned and seemed forced. it’s nauseating enough when she spits out that $hit naturally. it is even more grating when it is memorized, and she just looks for a place to insert it.
    feel free to steal the bs flag. i did! 😉

  6. Got a Grip

    Well, I missed out on the pre-debate fun, but I’m here for the post-game wrap-up. I thought Joe kicked her a$$. I know I’m biased, but I happen to like a person who actually knows what he’s talking about as opposed to someone who spent the last week being programmed to only answer certain questions.

    And as a woman and a hillbilly, I’m offended by this woman 12 different ways from Sunday. Did anyone else notice that her accent has gone from some North Dakota/Canadian hybrid to Ozark hillbilly? I noticed it because I come by the latter honestly. Next thing you know she’ll talking like she’s from the Bronx. All that folksy bull$hit makes me want to take her out back and explain to her in short, plain hillbilly sentences what a total a$$hat she is. Bless her heart.

  7. gotta,
    while i was driving to the store today, it suddenly occurred to me what her accent is. it’s marge from fargo with a bit of the lucky charms lephrechaun thrown in.
    i despise her more and more each day. the kids are props. i didn’t see a bit of warmth from her towards them. did you notice that bristol wasn’t there? i wonder why. her big belly is something to be proud of, dontcha know.

  8. Got a Grip

    While prowling the reactions on various sites and freeping polls, I saw something that said that the lovely Bristol Cream and her groom-by-shotgun Levi Jeans were shopping for a wedding dress.

    Where’s my barfbag? I suddenly feel nauseous….

  9. how exciting! is she going to wear white?

  10. geez53

    Deja Vu?
    Maybe it was a pre-game post of a Jackie Kennedy photo that sent my grey matter librarian back to the dusty shelves. But for some reason, Palin’s responses kept bringing up images of my baby sister pulling the string on her Chatty Cathy, ad nauseum.
    Palin did add some ‘free will’ contributions to her script, but they were mostly folksy color.
    The best Gotcha, that i hope gets over analyzed, was the power-grab description of her potential role as a Dominatrix-of-the-Senate VP.

  11. geez,
    all i will say no more is that you had better come here tomorrow night. i worked on something all evening, just got done with the post, and then i came here and saw your comment. all will be clear at around 8 tomorrow evening (eastern time). 😐 (that’s me being stoic)

  12. geez53

    It’s a date, just jotted the cuneiform note on my clay post-it note pad. ;}

  13. she didnt embarrass herself – but what an embarrassment to this country.

    can ANYONE imagine that lightweight twit as anything other than a PTA president serving tea

    she is clearly out of her league – and dangerous

    and thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. jeb

    So, I was wondering today about PALINdromes. And it occurred to me, in my own sick twisted little world, that her logic fits perfectly. It reads the same from either direction. It’s circular logic (or a circle-jerk) if you prefer. So a palindrome can be a word that reads the same in either direction (like did) or a PALINdrome can be logic that doesn’t make sense in either direction.

    Now, if you’ll escuse me, I have to go scrape something unpleasant off of my shoe…

  15. Got a Grip

    nonnie, color wasn’t mentioned in the wedding dressing selection. But if I were McCain (and thank God and whoever I’m not), I’d be advising those two dabburned cute kids to select something in fuchsia and silver. Bright, shiny objects and all that, you know…..

  16. dcAp,
    according to some comments i read from someone who knows princess, the whole pta and hockey mom thing is grosssly overblown. she participated in her oldest son’s activities when he was little, and then disappeared from them after a couple of times. she brings them up as part of her resume, but it’s really only bull$hit. i used to have a friend (let’s call her ann) whose kids went to school with jenna and not-jenna in dallas. ann worked on a committee with pickles bush. pickles did almost nothing, but, at the end, when praise was heaped on her, she accepted it without a word as to who really did all the work. i think that’s princess in a nutshell. show up for the photo ops while everyone else does the real work. that’s why she is so ill-informed. she doesn’t read newspapers or magazines. that’s why she couldn’t answer katie couric’s question. all she knows how to do is to repeat talking points that someone tells her to repeat. i think she did embarrass capt underpants and the entire rethug party, especially those who had to go on tv and tell everyone that she is the best thing since sliced bread.

  17. geez,
    i hope you won’t be disappointed.

  18. gotta,
    maybe, instead of a dress, she can wear a volkswagen. that is what she is probably shaped like by now. vws come in lots of colors.

    i wanted to skip the debate and go knitting. husband worked late 😦 so i went ahead and watched. i have regretted it ever since. i think i need therapy.

    ms. bristol was holding the baby again after the debate for a while before his mom took him. when my son was small, and i hadn’t held him for two hours, i couldn’t wait to hold him again.

  20. jenn,
    bristol wasn’t there. that was willow who was holding the baby and then piper. i doubt that we will see bristol again before the election, unless there are some pics released by the campaign with her from the neck up.

  21. This helped me better get inside Caribou Barbies Head and understand how she things. Being a computer geek it makes a lot of sense to me. I think it accurately shows the programming for the debate.


  22. sandy,
    i saw that the other day. isn’t it awesome? i loved it! it’s now available on coffee mugs, t-shirts, and just about everything else.
