Joe Biden Got CLOBBERED by Sarah Palin
Friday, October 3rd, 2008
Goddamnit, I just KNEW this was going to happen. Joe Biden got trounced last night. Suckerpunched. KO’d.
Why didn’t we see this coming??? Didn’t it occur to anybody that we were being set up? Everybody — from Biden on down — got taken by her giggly-cheerleader deer-caught-in-the-headlights act. We've been had!
Hasn’t anybody ever heard of a pool hustler? And we've all seen movies and TV shows where somebody is standing there all dazed and confused, and then — BLAM! — a flurry of suckerpunches.
And Biden went down. Did he ever! Oh sure, Joe Biden has thirty years worth of knowledge and experience and Sarah Palin can't find Europe on a map. It'll be a piece of cake. And yet…
We should've known this would happen. After all, George W. Bush has been a laughingstock ever since he first ran for governor of Texas. And yet he's never lost an election. And he continues to get everything he wants from Congress even though his poll ratings are in the teens and his name is a punchline.
I guess we’ll never know: Was Sarah Palin cramming for this debate like a college student on a 3-week meth bender? Or was this whole “Uuuhhh, Bush Doctrine? Do what now?” shtick just an act from the getgo?
Well, it’s moot now. Sarah Palin bowled them over with her performance during the debate, just like she did at the Republican Convention. Biden stumbled and gaffed, and now the McCain-PALIN ticket is soaring in the polls.
Ohh, if only there was a way to turn the clock back; a chance for us to do this over again.
