The Palin Wink Should Become This Year's Gore Sigh


About the VP debate, who cares. The real question about it is if people saw Palin or... Tina Fey.



The winking didn't help.



MORE. Oy. And she always looks like she's chewing gum.



AND CONFIRMATION: The big winner tonight will be Tina Fey -- of that there can be no question, since you can always safely bet against the maiden-voiced one.



The WINK will become this cycle's The Sigh. It's just too easily mocked. Sorry. (By the way, just a reminder that I didn't invent the inane rules by which debates are judged in this country; I'm just noting their existence.)



FURTHER. Insty reminds us all why the Legacy Media is doomed. "Frank Luntz's focus group thought it was Palin by a mile. Luntz
predicts a big shift in the polls toward McCain over the next few days." See? Crappy as they are, there's just no way the MSM can possibly keep "conservatives" or (Lord help us) "libertarians" anywhere near as safely innoculated against reality as the brave citizen journalist truth tellers of the Right Blogosphere.
