Joe Six-Pack? Live updates from the VP Debate.

So the average American is now known as “Joe Six-Pack.”

We’re all alcoholics? Hockey moms? Sure, it’s a big thing in Alaska and she’s used to it, but come on.

That’s all I have, just..Joe Six-Pack? Seriously?

Oy…I have a feeling…

… I was going to say “have a feeling I’d be updating this as the night goes on,” but…

Palin just said that a $5,000 tax credit to individuals “won’t cost the government anything.”

Well, that’s $5,000 per family that the government will not receive, therefore – not receiving five grand per family.

Biden just ripped her apart on that, too – well played, Joe. “That’s what I call the Ultimate Bridge to Nowhere” remark – I laughed. Hard.

And Scranton got a shout-out. I live there. w00t!

Update from 9:25pm to 9:28 pm

Any question that deals with the economy? Palin refers to “Wall Street.” Good thing I’m not playing the VP debate drinking game.

Update from 9:28-9:40

Palin:

“The chant is drill baby, drill.” And we hear it all across America at our rallies.” Senator O’Biden. Wow.

Biden:

“A comment made in a ropeline was taken out of context.” Good, that’s cleared up. I’ll look for the full quote.

“Do I support same-sex benefits? ABSOLUTELY…It’s what the Constitution calls for…are gained the same Constitutional rights as heterosexual couples.”

Palin (about same-sex marriage and the like):

“…Not if it grows closer and closer to redefining marriage in America between a man and a woman, then no.”

She just stumbled all over her comeback.

Biden:

“Will all due respect, I didn’t hear a plan. John McCain voted [with Obama] against funding the troops because there was a timeline.”

“John McCain…there is no end in sight to end this war.”

Palin:

“Your plan is a white flag of surrender for our troops in Iraq. The surge works. Knowing again that we’re closer and closer to that end; that end that is in sight.”

Palin just called out “dangerous dictators” on being, well, crazy, not sane, and unstable. Wow. Awesome foreign diplomacy right there.

I’ll update this later on; possibly on a new post – I’m going to ‘enjoy’ the next half-hour away from my PC.

    Biden hasn’t ripped her apart yet.
    Bridge to nowhere comment lame —
    Obama/Biden = lies lies lies
    Check the facts.

  2. I have.
    The only untruth (aside from “McCain won’t give oil companies tax breaks”) I’ve heard is your post on my blog; “Obama/Biden=lies lies lies.”
