It has been interesting, as an Alaskan resident, to see the pre-debate commentary floating around. I find the headlines warning of Palin’s debate talents laughable, and I just want to assure everyone – DON’T WORRY. Palin really doesn’t know anything. She really is an empty vessel. She isn’t fumbling because McCain has been keeping her from being herself. She isn’t incoherent because she has been trying too hard to use sound bites. She is fumbling and incoherent because she really knows nothing. As my husband says, there’s only so much information you can cram into a completely empty head.
Yes, Palin is choking on her force fed sound bites like Mary-Kate Olsen in anorexia rehab. But even if in desperation the McCain camp lets her “be herself” this will be even worse than her befuddled mumblings. Because Sarah Palin is a hick! She’s as cogent as a hooker at a truck stop. Palin speaking as Palin would involve 101 recipes for freshly clubbed seal oil, tips on how to properly store automatic weapons in a root cellar, or how to tell the difference between the severed leg of a Siberian husky and a wolf. Trust me, the best thing that could happen to the Obama campaign would be to set Palin loose as the real Palin. Yeah, Mathew McConaughy’s brother Rooster (who legally named his son “Miller-Lite”) and the Left Behind book club will love her, but that’s about it. Trust me. So pop the popcorn, grab the twizzlers and look forward to the debate.
