Good Grief and Good Luck!

This is turning into high comedy. First, Sarah Palin completely blows her interview with Katie Couric. It's been said
"it was more like a train derailing on a bridge, tumbling a thousand feet into a canyon and landing on a pile of old dynamite and gas drums. And then a jumbo jet crashed into the flaming wreckage. Followed by an earthquake that caused the whole mess to slide off a cliff into the sea, where the few miraculous survivors were eaten by sharks."
See for yourself:

The same memorized talking points and lack of critical thinking that she showed in her interview with Charles Gibson. No originality, no spontaneity, and no intelligence was evinced in Palin's responses to Couric. And, "I'll try to find ya some and I'll bring 'em to ya"? Does this woman speak standard English? I wonder what the wingnut outcry would be if Obama spoke like that! Palin sounded like a stupid, drunk trailer-park ho. This is the woman who would be "a heartbeat away from the Presidency"?

Oops, I'm being "elitist". Then call me elitist, and click the next link.

Next, McCain suspends his campaign! His declining poll numbers wouldn't have anything to do with that, would it? Or perhaps, as Josh Marshall speculates, it's a way to eliminate the VP debate. They wouldn't want poor Sarah to get beat up by that mean Joe Biden, would they?
What could McCain do in Washington that he couldn't do on the campaign trail? Oh, yeah, keep America and the world from seeing how bereft of ideas and intelligence he and his campaign are. Obama correctly and wisely refused to suspend the debate on Friday, so we'll have to wait until then to see if he'll be a one-man show or not that night.

And last, our Chinese dealersbankers seem to be beginning to pull the plug. Oh frabjous joy! What this means for the markets tomorrow, and the resolution of the financial crisis, only time will tell.
