Complete VP Debate
I posted this on Huffington Post and Think Progress before the debate...
I can't help but remember a Family Guy episode where Louis Griffin is running for some kind of office. She is struggling with the debate until she just answers all questions with a beloved right wing phrase She has the crowd howling. I expect a 'real life' application of that.
I think that came pretty close to the truth. She was well coached on all the answers near and dear to the conservative base, in complete disregard to the question asked without deference to the truth or reality. She sounds like more of the same. McCain's like Bush on policy and Palin is like him on ineptitude and the kind of bravado best displayed by the unapologetically ignorant.

Joe Biden on John McCain: Maverick He Is Not
There's too many one issue voters on the conservative side. Would you vote for the devil if he claimed to be prolife? With Neocon claws firmly entrenched in the Bush policy accepting McCain/Palin campaighn you may be doing exactly that.
In fact given the huge propensity to lie I think it is appropriate to remind conservative voters who the Father of Lies is.

The real truth on McCain
You could say, Look, is this guy, Laden, really the bad guy that's depicted? Most of us have never heard of him before. And where there is a parallel with Vietnam is: What's plan B? What do we do next? We sent our troops into Vietnam to protect the bases. Lyndon Johnson said, Only to protect the bases. Next thing you know.... Well, we've declared to the terrorists that we're going to strike them wherever they live. That's fine. But what's next? That's where there might be some comparison.
