    Original story

    This approach only works if the audience is dumb enough to fall for it. unfortunatly, they just might be :sigh:

    Audiences are always dumb enough to fall for it. Politicians in the UK have been using non-answers to journalists for ..... well as long as I can remember anyway. Getting a specific answer to a yes know question form a UK politician seesm to be the worlds hardest task, I always assumedthe USA would be much the same.

    [Deep Movie trailer voice] "He is a tough, incisive, aggressive, condescending and irreverent English journalist, author and television presenter who has worked for the BBC since 1977, best known for his abrasive and forthright style of interviewing on the BBC's Newsnight programme. His partner is a Welsh radio and television presenter, journalist, author and tenacious and forthright interviewer, and the winner of many national broadcasting awards. They fight crime."

    I hope Biden comes to the debate wearing oily and greased up overalls and holding a wrench while answering questions and replying to every single question by constantly repeating the words BLUE COLLAR, WORKING CLASS, AVERAGE AMERICANS, JOE SIX PACK, AMTRACK and JOEY FROM SCRANTON. The only way to beat a caricature like Palin is with an even more powerful caricature.

    Oh and he should mention that "Palin" ryhmes with "Stalin" just to really throw the Repuglies off their feet.

    In fact I'll produce the exact words Biden can use in the debate:

    "Well when it comes to our fledgling economy and deepening financial crisis I don't think Ms Sarah STALIN understands.. Oh wait, did I just say STALIN? Oopsie. I would never mix my honorable opponent up with a COMMUNIST dictator now. You're not a COMMUNIST now are you Ms. Palin? Or was that Stalin? I forget. Silly me."

    *Biden winks cleverly at the camera*.


    lol This debate could potentionally be the funniest and most exhilirating ever.

    Ditto!!!

    I'm not going to go into the debate, but IMHO Biden clearly showed far superior knowledge and leadership skills. What has annoyed me, having watched and read a number of opinions of the debate, is that Palin is getting so much credit for surviving through the debate without doing another "Couric", despite the fact that she rarely answered a question asked of her; I watched the debate, and have since read the transcript, and cannot find any statements of policy - she constantly lists what has to be done but fails to elaborate on how her and McCain plan to do it!. She may do a reasonable job as governor of Alaska, but that is a low population state that has a good revenue - economically it is very far removed from the rest of the US.

    Also, I never thought I would see the day that a VP nominee, during a live and internationally broadcast debate, would wink at the camera, and call out to a school class that a family member teaches. Her "folksy" approach may be intended to appeal to middle America, but I found it patronising and cringe-worthy.

    If McCain wins, prepare for armageddon.

    Edit - I couldn't resist:

    Unfortunately, there is no mag. She sucks, kthnx.

    Palin reminds me of the middle-aged air-head who goes around entering pagents or whatever, because it's "The right thing to do".

    Probably sleeps with the judges, too.

    Edit: Just found http://interviewpalin.com/r1 That. Kinda funny >.>
