Sarah Palin is gosh-darn adorable a don’tcha know

October 3rd, 2008 // 408 Comments

Last night the Vice Presidential Debate took place between Republican Governor Sarah Palin and Democratic Senator Joe Biden. If you don’t know who these people are, please engage in activities with a high risk of infertility. Anyway, consider this post an open thread/romper room to get your politics on and sound off about the debate. In the meantime, I’ll be trying to salvage my eardrums which feel like they’ve been raped by Marge Gunderson from Fargo.

Oh, and who do I think won? How about I answer a completely different question instead? Waffles.*

*Didn’t get the joke? Don’t worry; I’ll post about Britney soon.

  3. Britney rocks

    Hay guys! I make fun of Britney Spears online and dedicate every minute of my life ridiculing her while she makes millions. I call her fat but here I am sitting on my ass behind my computer typing this out right now…all alone.
    Am I cool yet? ^_^

    You’re a loser and the post you just wrote is all the evidence anyone needs.
    The Superificial writer is actually quite witty and it’s sad that it’s lost on people like you.

  5. Makes you wonder a little... (Obama vs. McCain/Palin

    I’m a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight…

    If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you’re “exotic” and “different”. Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers; you’re an American story.

    If your name is Barack, you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim. Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, and you’re a maverick.

    Graduate from Harvard Law School and you are unstable. Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, then you’re well-grounded.

    If you spend 3 years as a community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, help register 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitional Law professor, 8 years as a State Senator of a district of 750,000 people, chair the state Senate’s Health and Human Services Committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people, sponsor 131 bills, and serve on the Foreign Affairs, Environmental and Public Works, and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you don’t have any real leadership experience.

    If your resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as a mayor of a town of 7,000 people, 2 years as governor of a state of 650,000 people, you’re qualified to be a heartbeat away form the presidency.

    If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re not a real Christian. If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, left your ill wife, and married the heiress the next month, you’re a Christian.

    If you teach responsible, age-appropriate sex education, including the use of birth control, you erode the fiber of American society. If you staunchly advocate abstinence-only education, while your teen daughter ends up pregnant, you’re responsible.

    If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, you don’t represent America’s family values. If your husband is called “first dude”, has a DUI conviction, didn’t register to vote until 25, and was a member of a group that advocated secession of Alaska from the USA, yours is the quintessential American family.

    And, finally, if you’re famous for your quick temper, you’re the one to have your finger on the red nuclear button.

    OK, much clearer now.

    Palin was actually worse than the interviews because she had all kinds of time for coaching this time and still couldnt answer half the questions. We simply need someone smarter than her in the VP office.

  7. jumpin_j

    She’s a VPILF. Well, I’d hit that as long as she doesn’t get elected and I don’t have to listen to “you betcha”! Yeah, it’s a sacrifice I’ll make to my country.

  8. Amber

    GO SARAH!!!! YOU ROCKED!!!!!

  9. She’s a FAKE!!! Not a real person at all. What a fool.

  10. Kathryn

    Every time she would speak, Biden would take a deep breath and then look at her like he wanted to kill her and wear her skin.

    I loved how she reminded us with EVERY answer that she was the governor of the obviously-difficult-to-manage Alaska. Also known as the tumor canada refuses to have treated.

  11. Scott

    Sarah Palin won that debate. She’s great!

  12. ph7

    She has the intellectual firepower of Forrest Gump.

    Perfect to run a PTA.

    Enough said.

  14. Brett

    There’s no comparison…Joe Biden, or Sarah Palin? Gotta be Sarah!

  15. Amen

    Amen Professor. The great Repubican BS machine exposed.

  16. Markus

    Palin constantly avoided the questions.

    But she looks pretty.

  17. Lipster

    Palin proved she had a good memory for soundbites and can present in a non-abrasive way but her knowledge is an inch deep. She clearly doesnt know anything about anything.

    I would bang her though.

  18. glace neuf

    i’d it hit to anchorage and back.

  19. Jade

    I was impressed by Sarah Palin. She’s a force to be reckoned with!

  20. Cunolatin

    Sarah Palin is so pretty, and a very smart women.

  21. Shocked and appalled

    I cannot believe there are intelligent well-educated people out there who are actually considering voting for that woman and her archaic counterpart. I fear for the future of this country.

  22. chrisj

    Joe Biden was a senator when I was in college. I am pushing 60. Obama for change? You have got to be kidding! I know the people who post here are young immature kids, but if you want to see what happens with when a young, Ivy league, liberal, black man is put in power, read up on a guy called Franklin Delano Raines.

  23. Casey

    Sarah Palin and John McCain will win the election in November, no doubt! GO PALIN!

  24. Altaire

    Areej, can I marry you?!!!!!!!!!

  25. Horrified & Bewildered

    Still trying to figure out how someone as dumb as SP ended up on the Republican ticket.

  26. freelevi

    If a guy did nothing but wink, spout cliches, and speak in flash card generalities people would think he looked like a used car salesman (who knew nothing about cars). If you thought she did well, you probably cried during Forest Gump.

    She didn’t answer one specific question with specifics, and thought Dick Cheney’s biggest mistake was shooting a guy in the face. We have to fix global warming, but don’t have to know how it was created?!

    Biden had command of the issues and knew John McCain’s voting record better than she did.

  27. JackS

    #5 I was unaware that the race was Obama vs. Palin

  28. Areej Zufari

    Hi, I teach at community college. Do you think a celebrity gossip website is a good venue for my political commentary?

  29. kdm245

    Ummm – before everyone gets all hot and bothered over Areej Zufari’s quote… It’s been circulating on the web for over two weeks now. I think Tim Downing was the first to be quoted saying the exact same thing, but I’m not positive. Not that anyone probably cares, but here’s the link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tim-downing/catching-up-on-the-electi_b_126604.html

    Experienced President, less experienced VP. McCain/Palin

    Experienced VP, less experienced President. Biden/Obama

    Why is everyone harping on Palin’s lack of experience? She’s just as qualified as Obama, but he’s running for the greater office! Give me McCain!

  31. Crapper

    All I gotta say is, I will be thrilled when November 4th is done and over with. I’m so sick of all this bullshit. I’ve had enough.

  32. Muck

    Let me start by saying anyone who says First, is a douche. Second anyone who says First when they are second, well they are a douche covered turd wrapped in gayness.

    ok on to the debate…who gives a shit.

  33. Deacon Jones

    This quote says it all about this cackling hole:

    Katie Couric – “Sarah, what newspapers did you read daily prior to being tapped for this position”

    Sarah Palin – “Oooo, any of them, all of them, yep”

  34. Sherrie

    Sarah Palin is real people and given the chance will be one of the best things to happen to this great country. We need more “Washington outsider” type of people to get us out of the mess we are in. Thank You.

  35. Pussy Galore

    Wow Areej! A community college “professor” and a plagiarist!
    Way to go ya big dummy!
    #28 hit the nail on the head!

  36. Mia

    So she’s folksy. Nothing wrong with that. Go SARAH PALIN!

  37. freelevi

    30. The idea that she has as much useful experience as Obama is a joke. The man has passed arms control legislation to keep nukes away from al qaeda, and congressional ethics reform. He passed kids health care in the Illinois state senate.

    On the other hand, she tried to ban books from libraries, charged victims for rape kits, cut special needs funding, and thinks humans lived in harmony with dinosaurs.

    I’ve heard of rose colored glasses my friend, but get real.

  38. dude_on

    I hope this is a giant step toward women running the country. Women are smarter and smell better. Men won’t even ask for directions – did anyone really think that a group of us could run the free world? The first hot lipstick lesbian couple to run for executive office on a combined ticket is almost a slam dunk. Finally we are progressing as a nation.

  39. BJORNY

    Sarah Palin is fucking cornball with boobs. Biden won the debate, plain and simple. The McCain campaign is falling apart. God bless America (finally).

    Barack Obama + Joe Biden = an America we can be proud of again.

  40. ......

    Areej Zafari actually had this article published in the letter-box section of Time magazine at the beginning of September. This is odd.

  41. you betcha ass

    Isn’t “Valencia Community College” a fancy name for a vo-tech school?

    OBAMA is a christian like Bill Clinton is a faithful husband.

  42. NotFamous

    I thought it was quite awkward at times…first Palin comes out and says “can I call you Joe” when greeting Biden. Then every time she used her folksy language like “you betcha” “Joe sixpack” and “hockey moms” I cringed. I cannot imagine her standing in front of the White House let alone being a heartbeat away from President of the US. McCain dropped the ball picking this one!

  43. Richard McBeef

    @22

    You are almost 60 and lurking in a celeb trashing site. Fuck man. You should probably kill yourself now.

  44. in the minority (aka i have a 3-digit iq)

    “Makes you wonder a little…” I love you.

    The idea that “The American people won” last night because they were “spoken to by a true American instead of a Washington elitist” is simply proposterous. Unfortunately, for many Americans, it’s true. I now give Palin (or the people behind her) more credit. All those “you betcha’s,” winks, and moose-in-headlight smiles were 100% planned because they know that the average American dumbass will eat that shit up. People trust stupid.

    WAKE UP, people. Don’t you WANT the person leading the country to be smarter than you??? I mean, I don’t like drinking with people that make me feel stupid, but I’m not planning on drinking with my government.

  45. Some people are real sheep

    It’s possible someone reposted the article about Obama vs. McCain/Palin, but got the name wrong. What professor would visit this website anyway?

  46. Crapper

    Ah ha!!!
    #29 you are totally right! Areej Zufari basically COPY AND PASTED that article and passed it off as theirs on a celebrity gossip website!!!
    Hilarious!
    Areej has probably hit the refresh button well over a dozen times to see our response!
    Areej, you are a total LOSER!! It took less then 10 minutes for the readers of this website to OWN your plagiarizing ass!
    ROLMFAO!!!
    Please, enlighten me, what do you have to say for yourself? My guess, NOTHING!!!

  47. go USA

    It doesn’t bother me that Palin is folksy. Nor am I particularly troubled by her limited experience.

    What scares me is how DUMB she is!!!

  48. dan

    “Valencia Community College” is code for “Al Qaeda”

  49. lucci

    I’d do her, but with her mouth shut!
