So, the McCain/Obama (alphabetical order) debate starts in a little over an hour. Despite the desperate stage-managing of these events, they still do occasionally surprise. Any Hoydenizen who is live-blogging the debates should leave a link in comments so others can check you out.
In other news, one of the National Review columnists has given up on Palin (link via a mailing list, ta):
Palin’s recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League.
No one hates saying that more than I do. Like so many women, I’ve been pulling for Palin, wishing her the best, hoping she will perform brilliantly. I’ve also noticed that I watch her interviews with the held breath of an anxious parent, my finger poised over the mute button in case it gets too painful. Unfortunately, it often does. My cringe reflex is exhausted.
Palin filibusters. She repeats words, filling space with deadwood. Cut the verbiage and there’s not much content there.
I wonder whether Obama will get a chance to ask where Palin is being sequestered during the debate?
