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…
