Sarah's secret strategy

Frighteningly close to the truth, as evidenced by the fact that she could not actually talk extemporaneously about anything more substantive the wording of "Drill, baby, drill!"

It would have been nice to hear her actually answer one or two of the questions posed, rather than reverting directly to her talking points. Thus far, there's little evidence that she comprehends any of the giant issues of this election on more than a schmoozey, superficial level.

Hats off to Biden, though. Thought he did just about everything right. And, as he stated twice, this is the most important election of our lives.

PLEASE, God, let it be determined by questions that go deeper than those addressed on "American Idol." The fact that she didn't actually drool is not reason enough to elect her to such a critical position.

And I just can't bear another four years of "folksy" being more important than "competent" or "visionary" or "smart." Nor can the country, BTW. Sheesh.

Oh, and her closing remarks? Check this out.

Amen to your prayer that the election be determined by deeper questions.

Her folksy-ness was getting on my nerves and starting to feel manipulative and not authentic...its annoying...but that said, 4 more years of the ideology and policies she espouses (well, when she can complete a sentence)...will ruin this country. Hows that for plain and simple talk?

It's on its way to you...

Amen! As we get closer to the big day, I get more nervous. I fear the "folksy" (which is quite nice compared to my "redneck" label for such) will rise up in fear of change and storm the polls in great numbers. "Oh please, oh please, oh please" is my prayer, though maybe I should be asking for greater faith and believe in dear Julian of Norwich: "all will be well" no matter what the results.......... Nope, I'm not that spiritually fit! Now, gotta go paint the side of the barn with a big O and spotlight it at night.
