Jeebus, could media hyperventilation get more ludicrous?
If Palin, as she is expected to do, goes into a full blown attack…Biden must resist doing the one thing that comes so naturally to him.
He can’t smile.
As Biden likes to say on the stump, he "literally, literally" cannot flash the famous Biden wall of teeth, that reflexive wide-angle grin….
Holy crock o’ shite. Biden paid good money for that tooth bleach — he’ll flash his pearly whites at some point.
THAT is the win or lose point for Palin?!?
"Biden smiled. Did you get the camera on that?!? It’s Palinpalooza now, baby! Wait, was it only a smirk…run that tape back…"
Good lord. We’ve survived Dan Quayle’s "potatoe" moment; George H.W. Bush, supermarket scanner savant; Hillary Clinton’s battle with the cappuccino machine; and I haven’t even gotten to Zippy the Wonder Biker. (all YouTubes.)
But the press keep helping lower the bar for poor wittle Sarah?
She’s running for Vice President of the United States, for cripes sake. Must we endure the same underselling job the GOP did for Bush without questioning it? Look where that got us. Honestly, after the Gibson and Couric interviews, I’m not sure she’s met a minimal job competency requirement. And I’m not alone. (YouTube)
Stop lowballing her on-camera manipulative abilities. We all suffer for it. Prior opponents say she’s a master debater. She beat a sitting governor. Her appeal is strong among "have a beer with" types, with her folksy filibuster routine down pat.
Ugh. I’m going to start mainlining espresso now…
