Sadly, between the two of them, the English language will be the loser in this debate. (All times Central U.S.)
20:04: First laugh line of the debate: "John McCain is a reformer."
20:08: "Team of mavericks." WTF?
20:15: First, "I'm not going to answer the questions." Second, she eliminated the fool tax? What, she was tired of paying it?
20:23: I just noticed Palin's "mine's-bigger-than-yours" lapel pin. Bless her heart.
20:30: Let's create jobs by not buying any more foreign oil? I think she's stumping for Alaska, not McCain. Also, I think the causes of climate change might have some bearing on the solutions to it, but that's too advanced for Corky.
20:38: You know, people who truly believe adults should be able to chose their own partners don't have to read from a card to state their positions.
20:47: No! I will not countenance four more years of "Nucular!"
20:57: Clear thinking yields clear speech. Now, Eisenhower famously obfuscated when he wanted to but possessed a keen and thoughtful mind that helped us win World War II. In that light, Palin may be similarly concealing a towering intellect, but I'm guessing not.
21:04: If she doesn't know how the Senate works, how can she be its president? More worrying, why doesn't she see this as a problem?
21:06: My dog has left the room because I keep screaming at the TV.
21:11: "Say it ain't so Joe, and there you go again"? WTF?
21:20: Reagan didn't say "shining city on a hill." That was John Winthrop, in the 1630s.
21:18: Has Palin ever actually read the Constitution?
21:26: Not that it's relevant to the debate, but certainly it is to my mood: the Cubs are losing 5-0 in the 3rd.
21:32: Can't say that changed anything, but as an alumnus of
