I love the way Sarah Palin, at the end of her losing the debate to Joe Biden last night, handed her baby to her seven-year-old daughter. She must have been thinking along the lines of: "Now that I'm done (for the moment) exploiting my baby's down syndrome for the sake of the campaign (and burping him for everyone to see), my daughter can take over."
Palin's "performance" last night fused theatrics with politics to the point of ludicrous. I kept waiting for her to say "Live from New York, It's Saturday Night!" Tina Fey does such an accurate portrayal of Palin's ignorance it's difficult now to distinguish between comedy and reality. Perhaps that's the comic genius of Fey that she's captured Palin's desperate attempt to appear as a real politician. Fey does Palin so well; a Quebec newspaper recently confused the two in a recent article.
Another act of Palin's desperation: "I'm so glad you agree with Israel!" she said to Biden last night. This a tactic to distract the audience from her lack of knowledge about Israel, diplomacy in the Middle East and any other issue relating to foreign policy. How can Palin know anything about Israel when she doesn't read newspapers or magazines or any type of news?
