Palin Did Well. Well, Good Enough.

This intelligently ignorant conversation about the Vice Presidential debates is brought to you by the Three Ways crew.  With an emphasis on conversation.  Unlike when you watch those folks on TV, you don’t have to yell at the screen to express your views.  Type it out.  We want to hear, well see, what you have to say.  And with that said, onto our regularly scheduled programming…

Good morning.  I hope you joined the rest of the nation and watched the Vice Presidential Debates last night.  Or at least caught the replays on the news.  Before watching them I have to admit, I thought Palin was going to get destroyed by Biden.  In fact, within the first 15 minutes it looked like she was about to burst into tears and run off stage sobbing like an embarrassed little girl that messed up her lines during the school play.  But she didn’t.  So props to her for that.  She wasn’t great though, quite mediocre in actuality.  Which is the problem.  Most pundits, especially those on Fox News, are saying that she did well enough.  That she didn’t mess things up for McCain.  That logic is horrible.  It’s like saying just because a handicapped kid can make jump shots, we should put him in the NBA.  

Yes, she can talk, look into the camera and regurgitate processed information.  A trained parrot can do that.  She also diverted questions, didn’t answer in totality and rambled on and on about nothingness.  She was shooting bullets in the air like an enthused terrorist hoping to hit something.  Let’s not forget that this woman is 2nd in command.  After Dick Cheney’s rule term, we can see that position is quite important.  Especially with a presidential candidate that’s nearing his death bed.  We can’t settle for good enough.  I don’t want a 3rd round draft pick coming off the bench when my starter gets hurt.

Not to mention the verbage.  The colloquialism isn’t befitting of a person vying for such a high office.  Joe Six Pack and the Hockey Moms?  Shout out to the 3rd grade class?  Imagine if Obama or Biden referred to Fred Forty Ounce and the Basketball Moms as well as gave a shout out to the kids back in the Chi or Delaware.  It would be a wrap.  Quickly.  I want my President to be intelligent.  The same goes for my VP.  I like the personal connection, but I don’t need them to be the type I’d have a beer with.  I know the type of people I drink with.  I don’t want them to be running my country.  No offense guys.  

Just saying, let’s call a spade a spade here.  If she wants to compete with the big dogs, she has to have the same requirements. There’s no “good enough” when it comes to the White House.
