VP Debate Analysis

Filed under: Barack Obama, Joe Biden, John McCain, Presidential Election 2008, Sarah Palin — The Elitist @ 12:20 pm

Everyone is talking about it, and they all agree: Sarah Palin won the Vice Presidential debates hands down! Whoo! Well, everyone except the uncommitted voters who believed that Joe Biden won by a 2-1 margin. But what they hell do they know? Palin won the old fashioned way, by lowering expectations so much that so long as she didn’t break down and begin drooling, she would beat expectations. It doesn’t matter that she refused to answer tough questions. At one point, when asked about deregulation, she blatantly said that she would not answer the question and began talking about taxes. What matters is that she said, “doggone,” “betcha,” and “Joe six-pack.” That’s what the American voters want. They want to be able to drink beer with their candidate. Just like President Bush. We want to drink beer with Bush and Palin, and they even say “nuc-u-lar” the same. Palin doesn’t need to know facts or issues or history. She’s going to avoid knowing things that are important, because that is the most maverick thing to do.

NY Times – Palin is the Best Ever

David Brooks – Palin is Essentially Jesus Christ

Wash Post – We Have Hard-Ons for Palin

CBS – Ignorant Americans Think Biden Won
