Debate Mockery, Mockery of a Debate

October 6th, 2008

As usual, SNL did a great job showing a lot of truth via comedy in the latest debate:

On that note, here’s a quote from the real debate by Sarah Palin:

And I may not answer the questions that either the moderator or you want to hear, but I’m going to talk straight to the American people and let them know my track record also.

News flash, Sarah: if no American people asked you a question and you don’t respond to any question asked to you, then you’re not talking to the American people, you’re talking to yourself–and by ignoring the moderator, who represents the people (as you agreed to when you decided to join the debate), you’re ignoring the American people.

Yeah, I know, this is very late commentary. But it’s been on my mind and I just wanted to get it out.

    The link to the video, the transcript and your comment is invisible – I’ve read it in the source for the page…

    It’s a late comment, that’s true.

    What is interesting for me though – what do you think about the multibilion bailout that just got accepted? I saw something similar in Poland when we kicked out conservative PiS party – at the last spasm they passed number of very budget costly bills that the new liberal government has to struggle with…

    Leszek: Thanks for the heads-up! Fixed the code–it was the “IE version” code (as usual!!!) that was breaking it. Got rid of it. If anyone uses IE to view this site or any other, then too bad, I ain’t sacrificing one pixel for that.

    Three points:
    1) I have noticed that conservatives often equate America and it’s (GOP) leader. Example: Disrespect Bush and you are a traitor… love America and it naturally follows that you trust the Commander in Chief. So – if your leader IS America, then of course she understands America.

    2) All interference with the leader’s will and vision is a distraction and may be actually traitorous. The MSM “filter” that Palin referred to dismissively is one such distraction. Random, unscreened questions from the rabble, certainly would qualify as another… (consider how careful, in at least the last two election cycles, conservatives have been to pre-screen audiences). Will and vision come from within… non-believers are distracted by “reality” and traitors will use their knowledge of “reality” to argue against the pure and patriotic vision of the leader.

    3) I imagine that in Palin’s gut (where true neo-con thought occurs) that she is convinced that she knows America without asking… she knows how to be a President without experience or even practical knowledge… all she needs to know she learned in Kindergarten, or sorry, in the Hockey stands… call it faith-based governance. Bush has, of course, referred to his own gut-level decision making many times over the years.
