QUESTION Regardless of which candidate you happen to support, who do you think did the best job in the debate – Joe Biden or Sarah Palin?


Our analysts tonight will be Citizen Mom and Jonathan Valania. Here we go…

8:57 PM Citizen: Wheeeee!

  I’m leaving CNN on because I am mesmerized by the neon spaghetti lines and the pie charts

8:59 PM me: so, any predictions?

 Citizen: Hmmmmm

9:00 PM I think they’ll both have a few carefully-placed zingers but neither will totally implodebidenavatar2.thumbnail.jpg

  and thus, Palin will fake-win

 Citizen: she is wearing BLACK!

 me: her funeral, Joe’s trial

 Citizen: She’s wearing black, I’m surprised. Is that shantung?

9:04 PM me: she wears black because she is a serious woman

 Citizen: I wear black on the outside because black is how I feel on the inside

 me: she is trying to get some of that undecided black vote

 Citizen: nice

9:05 PM me: Joe is getting good biofeedback

 Citizen: Nice lipstick

9:06 PM me: already with the mommy talk?

  she can be president of the playgroundpalin_boxer.gif

 Citizen: Yeah the “you betcha” stuff is out of place here

  Watch it, pal. The breeders are everywhere.

  She needs to slow down

9:07 PM Biden looks SO much more comfortable than she does

 me: wait, did that Fannie Mae reform include Rick Davis’ $30,000 a month consulting fees?

 Citizen: Here it is, he’s responding to her directly




  oh GOD

 me: oh lord shameless pandering to the working stiffs


9:09 PM Citizen: Gwen Ifill just made them both her bitchbidenavatar2.thumbnail.jpg

9:10 PM neither of them just answered the question

 me: America doesn’t want them to

  Joe Lieberman said so


 me: I am gagging on the faux populism

  she is worth $1.2 million!

9:11 PM she is an elite

 Citizen: Funny how she’s talking about how people were taken advantage of

  when the rest of the GOP has been out blaming homeowners all week

  Her answers so far have been 1 sentence of semi-answer and then 60 seconds of canned, rehearsed schtick

9:12 PM me: it was the minorities, they caused Wall Street to crash, they are why we can’t have nice things

9:13 PM prediction, she will stop her freefall in the polls, but lose the debate

 me: stop acting like you speak for The People!

I know the The People, The People are a good friend of mine

You lady, are NOT The People

                     you think she is armed?

9:14 PM 

Citizen: Oh hell you know she’s strapped. It’s on her thigh like Angelina Jolie

  That’s why the skirt has a flouncepalin_boxer.gif

  Biden’s having a hard time moving the lines

9:15 PM me: so transparent

  ‘not gonna answer your questions

  I will attempt to fool the American people directly’ [smiles cutely]

  wow, such a complete NON ANSWER

 Citizen: Gwen Ifill isn’t gonna take that. She will keep things on target

9:17 PM me: he’s movin the line now

  The Line likes him

  it REALLY, REALLY likes him!

9:18 PM she is NOT middle class

 Citizen: “In the middle class of America, where Todd and I have been until we had a net worth of $1.2 million”

 me: Alaskans take MORE Federal tax money than any other state

9:19 PM she rolls her eyes at health care for all Americans

  likes it’s from Russia

  which she can see from her housebidenavatar2.thumbnail.jpg

9:20 PM Go Joe

  give her the left, the left, the left

 Citizen: WOAH are you noticing where the lines are going?

  The yellow “woman” line is WAY higher when Biden’s speaking

9:21 PM me: those women are all looking for husbands

  and they can’t marry Palin

  nice, Bridge to Nowhere used against her — that’s gotta sting

 Citizen: I bet Sarah Palin has a higher net worth than Biden

9:22 PM Seriously if women are the all-important group here, Biden is PWNING it

9:23 PM me: good one

  offshore bank accounts ARE Un-American

  oh, same old lines over and overpalin_boxer.gif

  dodging the topic

  it’s like she brought her own debate questions and answers and its different than the one Biden and Ifill are having

9:24 PM how stupid does she think America is?


  this is insulting even by her standards

  what makes her an ‘energy expert,’ exactly?

  what schooling, what experience? was she an engineer or a geologist?

9:25 PM Citizen: I was so tough on the oil companies that my states budget was only 80% oil revenue, not 83%


  me: Fannie Mae was paying your campaign manager $30,000 a month

  up until like last week

  and I wonder how many working class family’s mortgage payments went to pay his consulting fees

  I wonder, we should ask some of the people foreclosed on, I bet they would know

9:29 PM Citizen: Haha, look at the green line

 Citizen: Men clearly don’t like Biden because he looks like he had his eyes done

 me: I don’t know the answer so I am gonna talk about drilling in Alaska

9:30 PM Like it’s like she showed up with her own questions AND answersbidenavatar2.thumbnail.jpg

 Citizen: That’s what Colbert said last night

 me: Noun, verb, drilling for oil

9:31 PM uh oh

  global warming question

  wriggle out of this

  mccainpalindrillbaby.jpgJesus Lady

  that’s right it’s not all man’s fault, women had a hand in it, too

She’s like ‘I don’t wanna know what caused it, I wanna know what you are gonna do to fix it  — that doesn’t mean less drilling, because I really like saying ‘Drill, baby, Drill’

 Citizen: Seriously, is she even speaking English?

  I feel like I’m hearing political Esperanto

 me: wait, we know the cause of this problem

9:32 PM 

  the rest of the world doesn’t care about climate change as much as we do?

  they have been waiting on our asses since Kyoto!palin_boxer.gif

  read a book, you boob!

9:33 PM read a newspaper

  not just ‘all’ of them

  but ONE

  just ONE

 Citizen: Oh remember, she reads ALL OF THEM

  Especially OK! and the Weekly World News

 me: that is why she is so confused

  trying to read them all at once

 Citizen: And the things the Jehovah’s Witnesses stick in your door

9:34 PM me: people are so HUNGRY for drilling

9:35 PM Citizen: Senator O’Biden!

  Begosh and begorrah!

 me: it’s like she thinks America is at home masturbating to her talking about all that hot, raw oil

  we have in Alaska

  nu ku lur

 Citizen: Nucular!

 me: first sign you are a MORON, I can prove it

9:36 PM same sex benefits?

  this is what America wants answers to?bidenavatar2.thumbnail.jpg

9:37 PM c’mon

 Citizen: yeah I think most states offer at least spousal benefits now, right?

9:38 PM me: aw, she is tolerant of those dirty homosexuals that are gonna burn in hell, what a pal!

 Citizen: Just got this txt message from a friend: “I don’t think I could hte this dumb slut more. I want to take a hockey stick to her glasses.”

 me: man or woman?

  my non-support, who uses words like that?

9:39 PM Citizen: Fuck them BOTH for not supporting gay civil marriage

 me: agreed

  those people are fucking Americans

  we are all created equal

  its says it right there in the Constitution

9:40 PM Citizen: I know, it’s all about Equal Protection for me

 me: her concern is that if there is too much gay marriage, why even her and Todd could wind up gay

  that is the threat

9:41 PM Citizen: She’s managed not to lose him to the big game all these years

  She’s not about to lose him to a big gay


  try the veal!

  “with all due respect, I didn’t hear a plan”


 me: her plan for Iraq, send pitbulls and hockey moms

  and enough lipstick for both

  and are troubles will soon be over,palin_boxer.gif

  you betcha!

9:42 PM Citizen: WOAAAAHHH look at those lines.

  They love it when Biden talks about the war!

 me: oh, lord

9:43 PM the ‘white flag of surrender’ line is tanking


 Citizen: “Your plan is a white flag of surrender”

  THAT’s the best you’ve got?

 me: look how smug she looks, and she thinks she looks cute

9:44 PM Citizen: I really wish Gwen Ifill would break in here and remind Palin to answer the fucking question

 me: they beat her down with that book crap

  it worked

  she is a non-factor

9:45 PM she shoulda dropped out and put someone in who would call her on her bullshit


9:47 PM me: women love Biden

 Citizen: Woah look how the lines dipped

9:48 PM me: does Palin even know that Abbajibjab dude is NOT the supreme leader of Iranbidenavatar2.thumbnail.jpg

 Citizen: Name dropper

 me: that is ALL

  Henry Kissinger can’t leave the country because he is wanted as a war criminal is something like five countries

9:50 PM Citizen: I am not kidding when I say I have no fucking idea what the hell she’s talking about

9:51 PM Spain again!palin_boxer.gif

 me: Joe just killed

  Spain is SO gonna be bombed

  if Mccain wins

9:52 PM even though Palin can’t see it from her house
