Well allright. Its my baby's time to shine! I'm here in St. Louis but I donno yet if Im actually gonna watch from the audience or not. I wont lie, I got bored earlier and got into the minibar, so Steve's been saying I don't get to go down and see the thing live. I said like hell I dont! But I don't know, also its pretty comfortable up here and I might be able to blog easier than from my blackberry. An its true Im feelin pretty good right now.
9:00 - OK, I'm at least starting things out up here in the room. Kind of flipping around, not sure where I'll end up but CNN is in the lead right now. They got these circles on the side of the TV, and a bunch of regular folks with dials to rate the whole thing. It's all pretty scientific, like how they score boxing.
9:03 - Blah blah blah I'm Joe Biden. Man who would even listen to this guy? He doesn't even drive a truck.
9:06 - Yeah, Sarah! Nice opener, baby. That thing about soccer was Steve's idea, its meant to get more hispanic people to vote for us.
9:08 - Was that a wink?! I mean fine, I know its TV, but Im just saying Brad better not be in this f***ing building.
9:11 - I think Sarah is right, the people need to rise up! We need to tear those Wall Street boys up, I am sick of them an I bet you are too.
9:14 - Im glad Sarah is talking about about cutting taxes when she was mayor. I mean OK, the hockey arena actually cost a lot of money. But its like how they dont count the army when their doing the budget, you shouldn't really count that.
9:19 - Steve says I should remind everyone that the financial services industry is composed of patriotic Americans who have proven to be steadfast allies of those who fight for less burdensome regulation and more robust economic growth. OK its me again.
9:22 - Sarah is talking about taking on the oil companies in Alaska. I can maybe add some insite, she did it all right. She kept tellin em you should drill more and give us more money! And they tried to say no, but then she made em. And you know what? It definitely made things a little uncomfortable when I took her to my office xmas party at BP (at least until everyone had had a few). She is a tough cookie, take it from me.
9:30 - OK, got a little lost there. I think that energy independence is going to prevent people from going bankrupt? I never claimed to be as smart as Sarah, she is definitely the brains in the family. Sometimes I cant really follow what shes saying, its at such a high level I hardly understand a word.
9:34 - I will never understand why the democrat party cannot for the life of them pronounce the work nucular.
9:36 - OK on to homos. I got nothing against em I guess. Sarah is even more open minded, in fact one of her best friends is a gay. But shes right, marriage is between a man and a woman. Or between a man or a woman and Jesus, I guess (if one of them is a priest or nun).
9:42 - Ive been on the campaign trail for a while now, and I can tell you I am so sick of Iraq. I think everyone else is too, but that doesnt mean we can stop, it just means we want to stop hearing so much about it! Its like when you sign up for a record club but then they jack up the price and you cant stop paying, they'll just hire a collection agency! You gotta just keep sending those checks until its over. Iraq is like that. You just have to try not to think about it too much except when you're enjoying the Toby Keith CDs or oil or whatever.
9:49 - Shoutout to Hank Kissinger! Hell yeah, Hank! He must of been tickled by that. Sarah and I have both become really good friends with him, I could tell you some stories about what that boy gets up to but I probably shouldnt, all I'll say is the man can hold his liquor.
9:51 - Biden just mentioned Spain, I think that is his first major slip up. America knows the score about Spain... and we're sick of it! You dont want to associate with those people Mr. Biden. Bad move.
10:01 - Oh man. Does anyone know how late is this supposed to go? I'm trying to pay attention to all this stuff about nukes but honestly it's just reminding me that War Games was on TBS earlier today. That movie is all right. I talked to Sarah about it after, we agreed when she's elected she should definitely put a stop to that missile computer stuff.
10:08 - Team of mavericks! Like when batman teams up with catwoman! I think that is the image America is going to come away with tonight.
10:17 - OK flipped away for a while, the History channel is showing Tombstone!!! I hope this wraps up soon, they hadnt gotten to the part where everybody gets shot but its coming up!
10:29 - I couldn't resist, I watched some more. In my defense Wyatt Earp is also pretty much a maverick. But back to the debate, I think it was a good closing statement. The one point I think it was really good for Sarah to make was about the main streamed media, they have been against us from the start.
Well I suppose I got a little impatient toward the end there, but man these things are long. I think Sarah won it but then I never had any doubt. Way to go baby, tonight you were America's "huckleberry"!
