vice presidential debate cancelled

I was just sitting here, thinking of excuses McCain could use to cancel the Vice Presidential debate. The best I could come up with is:

“So that Sarah Palin can lead a covert mission to neutralize Osama bin Laden.”

I also liked:

“So that Sarah Palin can call on God to bring peace to the Middle East.”

    They really have started talking about postponing the VP debate. You can read about it here:

    Last night, on the Letterman show, it was suggested that the motive behind McCain canceling this Presidential debate was ultimately bumping the VP debate altogether. As we’re running out of time before the election, and as everyone agrees that the three Presidential debates are of vital importance, the thought is that the VP debate will be bumped to make room for the rescheduled debate.

    Letterman was pissed off by the cancellation.

    So she can slide up and down on the cock of her husband’s business partner.

    She is an exciting choice. And she hunts and fishes as well!

    I want to know when the video is going to leak, fake or not. It certainly didn’t ruin Paris Hilton’s day.

    Someone made a good point in another thread about how poorly Bush did in the debates against Kerry and Gore. In the end, it didn’t matter that he was stupid and unqualified – America liked him. They “wanted to have a beer with him”. We live in a nation of people who are stupid and cannot discern reality from fiction. They watch world events as a television show, not thinking about real work implications. They like drama. They want to be entertained. They want someone likable and attractive more than someone who understands the boring art of diplomacy. They want another Bush. Palin will win.

    Paw, just for the record, once again, it didn’t quite work as well as everyone wants to keep saying. 2000 and 2004 were both stolen elections. Massive vote fraud to the tune of millions of votes was committed. In 2000 it affected the ultimate outcome of at least 3 states. In 2004 it was a half dozen or more. So, actually, the majority of Americans have never voted for Dubya. A majority didn’t vote for Clinton in 1992 either, for that matter (the Perot factor). In addition to the stolen presidential elections, dozens of congressional seats were stolen in those years as well as in 2002 and 2006.

    That being said, your point is still valid…nearly half of the voting public is so stupid, they actually bought the con-job the Dubya gang put out there (though it wasn’t a majority that supported them with their vote). I would also suggest that a very large portion of the Democratic vote also buys much of that same bullshit, but just so happens to prefer the line the Democrats put out there. Only a very small minority of voters actually think much about what’s going on. You are right about all that. I just don’t like letting the fallacies inferred from such statements getting by without a shout down.
