    ... which Sarah may very well relate to as the "First National Moose Association" and the "Fairbanks Hockey League and Muskrat Club".

    Holy CRAP - I finally got to watch the video (can't access streaming at work) and OMG, it was sooooo bad. She is a walking disaster!

    Katie looked so uncomfortable. Palin has that effect on people.

    ^I don't think Katie could have scowled any harder at her. Palin seemed nervous. She's going to bomb the debate if she just gets nervous looking at Katie Couric.

    That's IF the debate even happens. With McCain threatening that he won't debate on Friday unless a bill is passed, it wouldn't surprise me at all if they somehow never get around to rescheduling her debate.

    Republicans like to strong-arm or use blackmail as a tactic to get what they want. Nice, honorable people that they are and all.

    If the vp debate doesn't happen before the Troopergate report is released, it never will. Can you imagine the questions that'll come as a result of the report?

    If she doesnt do the debate- then I think the media will definitely turn on her. They have already started to do that but this is taking the piss and has there ever been a candidate that never participated in a VP debate?

    The quote is from segment in April. It starts about 7:24 into the segment. Here's the link - Headlines - Gaffe-In | The Daily Show | Comedy Central

    It is one of my favorites on the show, and every time I hear the term 'elitist', I think of it.

    Oh. my. god. I had only read some of the transcripts up to now. I just watched the actual video.

    The woman clearly has no clue.

    She made Katie Couric look like a mental giant for chrissake. There is no way she is getting anywhere near a debate unless McCain wants the final nail in the coffin.

    The debate hasn't been canceled. Gore and Bush debated five days after the bombing of the Cole. The McCain campaign is going to have to come up with something better. All Obama will have to do is show up and get far more exposure. McCain risks more by not showing up.
