Gov. Palin, I Knew Dan Quayle and You're No ...


The vice presidential debates are always far more entertaining than the presidential pretend battles. Remember when Bentsen kicked Quayle's ass. Now days, he'd be a good VP to ask, "What does a vice president do?"

But Biden/Palin was a jewel. Oy, Biden is getting old, and Palin looked hot. But I'm not so sure if hot and folksy really go together.

Really: It's crazy that we focus on how she performs, wondering whether she's going to fuck up. This debate was entertaining, because it wasn't about the issues; instead, it was carnival freak show--the winking to the camera, the shucks, and "Say It Ain't So Joe," c'mon.

Is the base really that stupid?
