Joe Biden is a mensch, Sarah Palin; unspecified reform,

Maverick maverick maverick, golly gee. Sarah just can't believe that a man could be a single parent. Actually, I'm pretending to be nice. She's a sociopath, just like Bush and Cheney. Lovely, America. My oldest came home yesterday from five weeks in Europe. Her first words? "We're a third world country." Yep, thanks, Reagan, Bush, Bush, and McCain, should he get the chance.

Not on the clip, but did you see her wink at the camera, or am I hallucinating? And, raise your hand, everyone, who thinks she doesn't have a clue what "Achilles heel" means.

Here's what Joe Biden was responding to--Sarah (the mean girl we all knew and avoided in High School) assuming that a man had no clue about Life As We Know It.

But it wasn't just that experience tapped into, it was my connection to the heartland of America. Being a mom, one very concerned about a son in the war, about a special needs child, about kids heading off to college, how are we going to pay those tuition bills?

(I stole the Unspecified Reform line from someone at Daily Kos.) Thanks!

And Sarah did not even attempt to answer that question. I guess she doesn't have any weak points.

This is why we need buzzers during debates, to cut off answers that are blatantly unrelated to the question. The feedback panel armed with the dials revealed that weak-minded Americans can't seem to tell when candidates are on point. They react to buzz words like 'values' and give high ratings to positive sounding twaddle.
I just hope there are not enough ninnies to completely ruin this country, but then, look at the last two elections.

Did you notice how she said, right up front that she wouldn't answer the questions she was given; rather she would say the word "energy" every fourth word? OK, that may not be a direct quote, but its close.

As for ninnies, I sincerely hope that youtube will make the difference. Even if you don't read newspapers, seeing a vice presidential candidate unable to name one is pretty shocking.

Ha, yeah, and I did notice the wink! It made my stomach turn! Maybe that is how she will keep Iran from getting nukes, she'll just wink at them and talk about hockey practice while holding her poor baby! haha.
