A well-meaning conservative friend sends me Joe Biden gaffes followed with the question: “What if this were Palin?”
Here’s one of the better Biden quotes: “Look, John's last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.”
Why doesn’t this make national news? Because it is not news. Long ago, Joe Biden accepted full ownership of his gaffes.
That one (Sarah Palin) doesn’t even know when she is goofing up.
Media bias? I submit it’s more a case of ignorance about the way media works than bias. Frankly, I am glad the media has the courage to withstand the withering incoming fire from the right. Spiro Agnew has not yet left the building.
As for last night’s debates – thankfully, they are done. Old news soon.
Poor John McCain. The format hurt him as well as his own words. He lost the battle of the split-screen. At times, he looked downright scary. He talked scary. He was scary. But Obama never took the bait and remained cool, collected. (Am I biased? Of course.)
After the last eight years, we don’t need another cowboy in the White House.
The presidential race is not over, certainly, but if he were smart, McCain would re-focus his twilight on an attempt at saving GOP seats in the U.S. Senate. But I don’t think his ego will allow him to share the spotlight.
There's a reason he's a maverick.
