I just watched about fifteen minutes of the VP Debate (I know, I’m surprised, too, but they canceled Grey’s Anatomy for this and a little whisper in my ear kept saying I should care more and pay more attention). This was the first time I’d heard Sarah Palin actually speak (you know, instead of Tina Fey doing an eerily accurate impersonation) and I was surprised at how quickly she infuriated me. I don’t dislike anybody in this race EXCEPT for her and it kind of astonishes me. Up until now it’s all been a lot of he said she said SNL said, but it didn’t take long for me to come to the realization that all my inclinations were accurate in spite of my lack of bothering to hear her speak up until now.
The things that come out of her mouth sound like they should be honey to my ears (“as a maverick soccer mom from Alaska, I can tell you…”) except that my BRAIN knows how to call bullshit. BULLSHIT. All of it, I’m sorry.
I liked Joe Biden and I like him more now, I loved watching him try his hardest not to laugh his ass off every time she opened her mouth. I loved that he called her bluff, pointed out when she was avoiding answering a question and that she lied and skewed her information. And I nearly lunged into the tv and slapped her upside her trendy half-updo head when she did it again. Then I turned off the tv. Sorry, but I don’t need to hear anymore. Smarter bloggers than me will be writing about it later.
Please, to any Palin fans reading this, don’t bother ripping me a new one, I don’t really want to hear it. I’m just going to go back to my happy place, planning JNatalie and John Mayer’s wedding and saying la la la la la I can’t hear you Sarah Palin, please go away now…

Every time Palin winked I would hear Tina Fey *pew pew pew* finger shots.
She is extremely polarizing. People love her or hate her. I’m in the same camp as you. Plus I have the feeling she is a Mean Girl, Queen Bee, whatever. Smiles at the new mom at preschool drop off then turns to her friend and whispers a snarky comment.
Oh then their is the whole right to choose, “tolerant” of gay “choices” lines, and general idiocy that tick me off as well. Don’t get even me stahhhhhhted.
@ Jen : I think McCain should get Tina Fey in his camp instead, she does a much better job. I agree with everything you said here – kinda what I was trying to say in between trying not to scream to high heavens – haha
How could anyone hate you for speaking your mind? It’s yours & besides “a mind is a terrible thing to waste”!
Enjoy the presidential debates.
I really didn’t know much about Biden before this debate, but I now really like him.
I wasn’t a Palin fan before the debate, but I’ll give her one thing–that trendy half updo looked so much better than the bun thing that she usually wears. I was totally annoyed by the fact that she kept changing the subject and not answering the questions. It was infuriating to me. And her folksy “you betchas and doggonits” were enough to drive me insane. Seriously.
@ Jen : So true – I think my vote is set in stone at this point – firmer now than ever.
Jen, I felt almost the same way when I flipped to the debate tonight. I watched for about 15 minutes until I just couldn’t stand it anymore. She just seems so programmed by the campaign staff–all the proper expressions while Biden’s speaking, etc.–and it made me sick. And really, it doesn’t matter; nothing during the debate would change my vote at this point anyway. 🙂
@ Waltzinexile : That’s kind of what I decided. I won’t be censored on my own blog. If anybody reading this loves her, kudos to them. It wouldn’t be the first time the majority of America bafflingly disagreed with me.
Oh, I hope you don’t get a lot of trolls for this. I’m tired of feeling worried that people might be offended. Everything on your blog is your opinion — why should you have to self-censor?
