Dear Sarah Palin:

Debate n.: Discussion or consideration of opposing reasons; argument about or deliberation on a question.

Not!Debate: Saying whatever gets one's point across, regardless of the original question or the response of the opposition to said question.



I'm just sayin',

Me.



In related news, I can't get the video stream to work on C-SPAN, so I'm watching it on CPAC (which is webcasting both the US VP debate AND the Canadian English-language Leaders' debate). Is "ironic" the right word? Something like that.

Also, no love, US and Canada, for scheduling both debates for the SAME TIME. WTF?

Harper is getting SAVAGED. The other four disagree with everything he says and then mostly ignore each other. It is epic. <3

P.S. the US debate is scary, and not only because of Palin. The whole set up is creepy. It's just so... soulless. =/

I like the round-table format much better than the podiums. I mean, if it gets too ugly, the moderator could serve tea or something.

Did Harper take his Valium this time? The recap of the French debate (and the tiny bit I saw of it before the translator broke my brain) seemed to think he was "a little too Prime Ministerial" (translation: there may have been worry that he'd fall asleep).

Jack Layton apparently actually WANTS to be PM. My theory is that he has to stop looking like the video professor guy first.

I didn't see the French debate so I don't know. He's still a cyborg.

Also HEE, Jack Layton. You are so right. He just doesn't LOOK PM-like. But neither does the PM, so. And I like the NDP.

DUDE.






And OMG, I just found this. And here I thought I came up with the idea myself. This just shows how right I am. :)

And yay, the train wreck US debate is over! *turns to the PM getting slaughtered*

I like the NDP too. I wish we had a party like it.

Aaaaaaaaaah! Creepy. And true.

I think I might vote NDP this time. I like our local candidate, too. :D

If I weren't so bent on Obama getting elected, it would be hysterical to write in Jack Layton in November. Or Elizabeth May, since IIRC she was born in the US and could legally be elected President.

My local NDP guy is from the US. :D

But, yeah, that'd be fun. That's why we have black ballots, here, to avoid those shenanigans! I've already got about eight choices anyway...

Black Ballot? 'Splain, Lucy.

The ballots are black with white text and white circles for pencilling in your X. There is no space to write in another name.

Not that you can't see the graphite on the black in the right light, but in principle!

It's a good idea, but not as much fun as writing in someone undeclared or dead or Canadian. Or maybe all of the above! *writes in Pierre Trudeau*

I want to go back in time and vote for Trudeau. *nods*

My despisal (is this a word) of her is just getting deeper and deeper. MORON is too kind of a word.

She's actually memorised her lines doing better than I thought she would. Which is easy if you don't pay attention to what's going on.

She's a POOP FART!
Seriously - I just can't believe how she stood up there and redirected to the questions to what she wanted to talk about. Fuckin' moron.
