Wink, wink.



Based on mortality tables, Palin becoming president if the Republican ticket wins the election is about 1 in 6 or 7

Oh my god, that fucking wink. I wanted to tear my hair out every time she did it.

her debating was cringe worthy. i watched it with a group of girlfriends, pancakes and some bubbly and i thanks to her 'answers' i had trouble keeping it down!

Decorina said...

It is the nuke-cue-lar thing that does it for me. Makes me crazy.

She has nothing. Neither does Gramps.

Joe is my hero.

Tear your hair out? I want to pluck out both my eyes. Could that wink have been any more vaudeville? It was like watching a suburban wife pretending to be Sophie Tucker. All she needed was chewing gum to complete the picture.

Did anyone else almost spit their drink out when she said "John McCain has already tapped me..."? It was way frustrating how she never answered a single question, but you have to admit it was entertaining.

What frightens me is that the American public has already proven (twice) that they don't consider intelligence/articulation to be a necessary job trait for president.

The streaks bother me too.

She really needs to do something about that twitch.

Lipliner. Yes or no?

Cristina said...

I can't stand her.

Is it really professional to call him 'joe?'

and wtf is up with the 'joe six-pack' classification?

Lipliner? No. Never. If you want your lipstick to stay put you need to do three things:

Apply a little tony bit of concealer, powder slightly as you would the rest of your face, and then apply lipstick. When lipstick wears off, reapply.

Lipliner is ghetto. It's just a way for the MAC salesperson to size up your average order at the make-up counter.

Cristina said...

I recognize that shade of lipcolor - I think it's called anti-christ pink.

Decorina said...

P close up photo on, I think, Huffington Post, makes a case for tattoo instead of lip liner. Dunno.

Just know that she isn't VP material, never will be. Nor will she ever be qualified as POTUS. She doesn't have a clue, just some talking points.

And the hubris that it takes to tell the moderator that you're not going to address the questions...gah.

mappingkat said...

Wink, terrible. But how about the fact that she says 'also' in every freaking sentence? I thought I would just die watching this thing.

Palin: Can I call you Joe?

Biden: No, Call me Geronimo...It'll be more entertaining...

Or, Joe Six-Pack...

Roxanne said...

does a wink = a vote? Love your blog!

stljoie said...

She talks in circles...not only does she avoid answering questions she avoids responding to subpeonas...they really do think they are above the law...talk about elitism.

Watched it this morning. Twice. It was scary. She is nothing more than a jingoistic xenophobe. Many will see that, a great many won't. That, is the scary part.

They can dress her up, but you can't give her class. Not only clueless, with canned message points, unable to answer questions, therefore, refusing to, she's got zero class. "Joe six-pack" is code for "redneck," both of which she apparently proudly relates to. Over made up, would be America's first female president trying to be 25 again. Heavy black fake eyelashes and orange cheeks only point to her phonyness. She's all about the outside, nothing inside.

Biden spoke from experience and knowledge. Palin just parroted talking points. You can't fake knowledge of these issues because knowledge comes from years of following, studying, and thinking deeply about the issues. You can't just memorize stuff off index cards and instantly become knowledgeable. Anyone here could memorize info off index cards too. An elementary school student could have memorized Palin's Cliff Notes too. Does that mean that the elementary school kid could understand domestic and foreign policy issues? It's pathetic the way Palin wouldn't answer the damn questions. You could totally tell that she didn't know what the bankruptcy bill was all about--the first time she was asked about it she reverted to her talking points about the economy and the second time she was asked about the bankruptcy bill she decided that she would talk about energy!

Because I live in BC, Alaska's neighbour to the south, I've been aware of her for some time. I don't like her politics, and the folksy thing makes me cringe, but she's a quick study and surprisingly resilient. Under all that pressure I think she performed remarkably well. Damn.

I had a boss who had a wink like that, in fact it became a tick. She was stone ass crazy...

I couldn't watch. I had to keep changing channels and surfing back. Please NO, NO, NO.... it's got to be Obama. A-M xx Australia

Oh God - You just know that cutesy has always worked for her. it only didn't with K. Couric.

And what's with that "I'm not going to answer questions the way you or the moderator want me to. I'm just going to speak directly to the American people and tell them my credentials". Um - that's what a debate it. When asked a question, you answer it, you don't just rehash your inane 'drill baby drill' rhetoric. Ack. Alcohol and soothing carbohydrates for me please. now.

I agreed with what Bill Maher was said regarding Obama wanting to sit down and talk to foriegn leaders: "Ask Sarah Palin what 'preconditions' she would suggest." Guaranteed: no answer. Does she even know what her buzzword means??? no.

La Lou said...

Watching the debate, most reasonably intelligent people were able to connect the dots in their heads when Palin was speaking. Clearly, she sounded like a moron, but you were able to get what she was trying to say.

But try reading the transcript of the debate--the words that actually came out of her mouth. No sense whatsoever.

on Sarah Palin:

"The home-spun homilies have to go and, oh my god, words do have ending consonants."

Oh, Martha, say it ain't so. There you go lookin' backward again!
