    Whoa. WTF?

    EDIT: Palin just told Ifill she wasn't going to bother with her questions.

    Not smart.

    Palin: I DON'T HAVE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS MODERATOR. GO FUCK YOURSELF.

    I'm paraphrasing there.

    I think Pringles original intention was to make tennis balls... but on the day the rubber was supposed to show up a truckload of potatoes came. Pringles is a laid-back company, so they just said, "Fuck it, cut em up!".

    if he ignores her he is going to come off as a bit condescending and sexist... according to npr people anyhow. i would rather he goes into details of plans for the actual issues.

    either way this whole thing scares me

    "I'm not gonna answer your uppity liberal big media questions, I'm gonna talk to the people!"

    Fun fact: Palin introduced a sales tax to Wasilla, and increased taxes on oil companies as Governor.

    Good healthcare question from Ifill; a lot of people have been wondering about that aspect of McCain's plan.

    edit: She's stammering a bit yeah, but the questions are important, not her eloquence.

    Apparently, Palin can only remember her talking points in order.

    Please, Biden, mention that tax revenues help pay to rebuild crumbling infrastructure, and someone's going to have to pay for that.

    He is doing so well compared to her talking points, she sounded real good at the start but unless she starts refuting these facts he's putting out, it's going to show soon.

    Look at her hair. It twitches. Nothing against it but it is very funny.

    I kind of wish pi day would take off like 420 has. I could back a "eat pie at 3:14, erryday" movement.

    Wow, they're both really...sloppy. Neither of them seems to be able to stay on one question and keeps going back to other questions or comments and failing to really adequately address the questions posed.

    How is she middle class? She makes a quarter mil per year in a state that's got a median income quite below that.
