Game Changers?

So there actually was a debate tonight. Even without an agreement in place for the Wall Street bailout--or very far on its way to being in place, for that matter. Apparently, someone convinced John McCain that it would be better for him to look like he was grandstanding on economic issues than flaking out on a promise to the electorate. It was funny watching some of the commentary on the debate, because the commentators were so blatantly disappointed that neither candidate made a major error. Forced to discuss the actual content of what the candidates had to say. The post-game analyses didn't really last that long. So was there a winner? Who came out ahead, tonight?

All the McCain drama lately has overshadowed (by design, perhaps?) his running mate's interview with Katie Couric. I linked to the first part the other night, and now here's part two. Pay special attention to her explanation of Putin rearing his head in Alaskan air space.

I could easily be wrong on this account, but I expect that Palin will be getting more attention in the next few days as even her fans start to realize that she doesn't belong anywhere near the Oval Office. Reliable conservative stalwart Kathleen Parker has suggested that Palin quietly take her ball and go home. Parker's polite, but she doesn't hint around about the problem:

If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself.

Expect this to become a crescendo over the next little while. I'm not sure it will change anything, because who wants to be the sacrificial lamb to take her place on a ticket that, at that point, would be pretty obviously going into the tank?

Those Palin interviews are priceless. And the comments below make it as good as a night at Second City.

I think that Kathleen Parker is an idiot who somehow happened to be right about one thing. "Hirsute Birkenstock-wearing" feminists? Go suck an egg, witch.
