“…she’ll basically do the political debating equivalent of cramming before an exam in a subject you’ve skipped half the lectures for. ” – me, in my post “The Problem With Joe Biden III” on 30/9/08

“What’s happening to Sarah Palin right now is like the worst college exam cram period ever.” – Sarah Palin’s older sister Heather Bruce in a recent Glamour Magazine interview.

HOLY CRAP!!! I thought I was using an exaggerated analogy for humourous effect!!! Turns out it’s what’s really happening!! So am I incredibly insightful, or is it actually painfully obvious to everybody that this is what Sarah Palin is doing? So I guess we should disregard everything she says tonight on foreign policy that sounds sensible and knowledgeable – we now know for sure that she will have learned it in the past week and, if my memory of cramming is correct, in another week she’ll have forgotten most of it.

    the VP debate was stunning. Palin did a decent job faking about 20% of the questions and didn’t even bother answering the other 80%.

    i couldn’t help thinking of the end of the movie Billy Madison, when the debate moderator says to Adam Sandler, “Mr. Madison, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.”
