Debate Aftermath & Hamas Shocker

SNL on the VP Debate. Great stuff!

Meanwhile, in real life, Sarah Palin, honest-to-goodness Hockey Mom and the choice of Joe Sixpack to keep Iran in line, doesn't appear to know who Hamas are... (That's one of those "gotcha" questions I guess...)

If you believe the polls, it's not looking good for McCain.

ElectoralVote.com has more, and this nice bit of analysis (my emphasis):

"Rasmussen took a poll asking who won the Vice-Presidential debate and Obama supporters gave the nod to Biden by 81% to 3%. McCain supporters thought Palin won, 76% to 5%. Were they watching the same debate? The CBS poll of undecided voters said Biden won 46% to 21%. The CNN poll gave it to Biden 51% to 36%. The country is so polarized that it is apparently impossible for a McCain supporter to say: "Biden is a much more experienced debater than Palin so he naturally won the debate. By the same token, McCain is a much more experienced candidate than Obama, so I am voting for him." The model is: my party, right or wrong (Version 1.0 was "my country, right or wrong")."
I've spent time over the past few days on various pro-McCain/Palin blogs. The kind of places where people think the BBC, CNN and the AP are openly biased towards Obama, and where they think Fox is fair and balanced. Places, in other words, where the stupid burns. I'll maybe blog about it a few days, when more of the feeling returns to my brain...

Living in the UK I am forced to pay a tax to fund the BBC even if I don't watch it. Anyone who does not admit the BBC is pro-Obama is either an idiot or a liar. Your choice.
