The Debate is over, so Now Let's Hear from Biden and . . . . .
OK, the debate's over and the choice is clear. And it's not the Palin-McCain ticket.
When the debate finished I started flipping through the channels to see what the pundits had to say. Turned to NBC (which is what I have on right now -- wondering if the Republican respondee was watching the same debate I was) and heard this:
"When we come back we will have Democratic Vice Presidential candidate, Joe Biden, give his response to the debate. And . . . . .. . . . (are you expecting the same thing I am? ) from the Republican side . . . . . . . . former New York mayor, Rudolph Giulliani."
What? No Sarah Palin? Why no Sarah Palin? Has she gone back to Alaska? Taking care of her family? Out on a hot date with her hubby?
What's becoming clear is that Sarah Palin is an embarrassment to the Republicans. Like that crazy uncle our folks try their best to shield us from at family reunions, the Republicans are keeping Sarah's public meetings to a bare minimum. After last week's astonishingly bad interview with Katie Curic, they are especially desperate to make sure she doesn't embarrass them again.
How she'll do at the debate on Thursday night is anyone's guess. Or maybe she'll find some reason not to be there. Something like having to rush back to Alaska to sort out an economic mess. Oh, no, that was Senator McCain's ploy, wasn't it? It almost worked for him. Maybe they'll try it again . . .
UPDATE: I JUST HEARD THAT THE NETWORKS ASKED PALIN TO SPEAK. SHE DECLINED. I'LL LET YOU FIGURE OUT WHAT THAT MEANS . . . BUT, HEY, WAS I RIGHT OR WHAT?
