Review of the Sarah Palin Debate Show
First of all, I think I was wrong. I think Sarah Palin came out better than I thought she would. She smiled in a naïve cutesy way, yet she threw some hard to pronounce international leaders’ names around as if they were household words. She was good.
She threw Joe Biden a few questions to point out his conflicts with Obama and did it in an admiring way - so she said. Joe took it on the chin, unlike his opponent, and explained why he did what he did.
The naivety appearance, I think, was her way of conveying, “poor little old me, I don’t know what these inside politicians are talking about – I am just an outsider, but I know what right is right and God Bless America!” I wonder if she asked for a small U.S. flag as a prop to wave to get her point across.
I think her biggest gift was being able to dodge or avoid answering a question and make it look courageous by more or less saying she wasn’t a puppet. Right.
She was asked, either by the moderator or Bidon, about John McCain’s previous actions of promoting deregulating Wall Street’s financial world. And it was like she didn’t hear them – she insisted on talking about something else… dog! It would have been perfect if she had a little flag to wave. Bush was good at not hearing direct challenging questions too.
But she was charming, pretty, and perk. What more could you want for a Trophy Vice-President?
