Why I Won’t Watch the VP Debate 02 Oct 2008Posted by Jessa in Politics.

Even though I am a political junkie, I just can’t bring myself to do it. I’ve had enough of Sarah Palin to last several lifetimes.
Why? Because she’s a walking example of the Dunning-Kruger effect. It’s not just that she does she not seem to know much about the things a VP should know. It’s that, after she rambles through an incoherent non-answer that leaves even Katie Couric shaking her head, she sits back looking so pleased with herself. There’s self-confidence, and then there’s complete delusion.
I’m sure she’ll get through tonight. After all, the bar has now been set so low that if she manages not to throw up or pass out, it will be deemed a success.
Meanwhile, I will be in a much happier place, watching my DVDs of season two of Torchwood.
