I’ll be tweeting during the debate. Hopefully I’ll be somewhat witty. If you care to join in – just point your browser here:
I can’t believe how much I’m looking forward to a VP debate. While I’m hoping that Palin falls flat on her lipstic, I think that it will be a lot closer than I want. She knows how to handle herself in a debate – the stakes here are bigger, but she’ll be looking for mistakes, and Biden is prone to them. That said, she also has to be careful – I originally thought she’d just play attack dog, but after the past week, I don’t think that will play. People will want to hear her talk about the issues. I also think that with her past few interviews, she’s set the bar so low, that if she manages to string a couple of coherent sentences together without screwing up, the Republicans might claim victory.
One note: My Phillies are playing tomorrow at 6:07. If it’s played to the tempo of today’s game, it will be over by the time the debate, if not – I’ll be watching two things at once for a few minutes.
