Debate Tonight

I'm looking forward to the VP Debate tonight. Random thoughts:

Hopefully Senator Biden's plane lands safely, without being forced down by enemy fire.

Great choice for moderator tonight, Gwen Ifill is committed ideologically and financially to an Obama win. She violated journalism ethics by failing to disclose to the Commission on Presidential Debates that she has a book coming out on inauguration day titled "The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama." She's probably studying Charlie Gibson right now to learn how to look at Palin with contempt after every answer.

Joe Biden should be a formidable debater. After all, he received academic distinction in college, was the "outstanding student in political science," "graduated with three degrees," "went to law school on a full scholarship - the only one in [his] class to have a full academic scholarship," won an international moot court competition, and finished in the top 1/2 of his law school class. Oh wait, I forgot, he made up every one of those claims.

Palin should be debating Obama and let Biden debate McCain. That way we'd get the debate between the inexperienced candidates out of the way first.

So far, I'm disgusted. Could I hear some conservative ideas, please? Are we really going to go through the whole debate without destroying this false image of Obama as anything but a left wing extremist? Blame wallstreet, blah blah, cap and trade, blah blah.

One good thing Palin has done is point out how Biden was closer to McCain than Obama on Iraq, until he got the VP nod.

Oh, and I guess abortion isn't an important enough issue for Gwen to ask about.
