I enjoyed watching most of the French language debate here in Canada tonight. I thought May did better then expected and Dion silenced some of his critics. Harper took a lot of abuse, but he's the guy on top at the moment, so of course he's going to get piled on: that's not to say he wasn't a bit of an evasive douchebag. I very much hope (though am not expecting) he gets his ass kicked off of Sussex Drive.
In a south-of-the-border related note, I wish people wouldn't do what I'm seeing in at least one clip with Sarah Palin (I was on the always great One Good Move and watching a video of Olberman on MSNBC called "Palin's Greatest Hits"). I'm referring to when Palin and Couric are walking along a sidewalk and Couric asks about Rick Davis and a conflict of interest, then Palin is seen just walking and pausing for approximately four seconds. They never show the answer. If we're going to make fun of her, let's hear the answer. If she's actually unqualified, let's hear the answer. I'm in agreement that she's a simple-minded, unqualified fool, but don't play the bullshit game of waiting and waiting for an answer that doesn't come and then laugh the night away. If a politician needs several seconds to form a coherent answer to a question (even if it is a question that you lead yourself into with an unintelligent, uninformed opinion), then they should get it. Once the reply comes back, then you can do with it what you will.
Of note, when you actually hear the answer, it's cringe-worthy enough. So if your goal is to make fun of her, or put her down, or belittle her knowledge, show the damn answer and go to town.
Until then, shut up. Stop with the lowest common denominator crap.
