I didn’t watch it, but I’m pretty sure that the following are true:  Obama/Biden supporters think Biden won.  McCain/Palin supporters thought Palin won.

In reality, nobody really “wins” debates – they’re just 90-minute talking-point-flinging festivals, more fanfare than substance.

I’m also going to venture a guess that the people who drew the words “change”, “reform” or “maverick” in the debate drinking game are now on the verge of alcohol poisoning.

Why I Won’t Watch the VP Debate 02 Oct 2008

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.
