And this for a woman who flew hour upon hour in labour!?
Some have said that Sarah Palin has lost her confidence – that, in itself, isn’t a good thing when you are about to debate Joe Biden.
What I think is that the GOP have lost complete confidence in her – if she was so good why would the GOP ask that the debate free speaking part be shortened to accommodate her?
The vice presidential debate will resemble the traditional presidential event. However, the New York Times reported last Sunday that the McCain campaign sought to limit the time for freewheeling discussion in the vice presidential debate.
Advisers to Palin were reportedly worried that format could put the Alaska governor — a relatively inexperienced debater — on the defensive most of the evening.
The agreed-upon format for that debate now includes an abbreviated two-minute discussion period during which the candidates can engage each other.
Erm hold on a second – can we know why?
It is supposed to be a debate – she is going to take on the second, well almost second most important job for four years (assuming nothing happens to McCain), if they are elected and she has advisers who want to cut the debate short because it may be detrimental to her in some way?
This election is getting to the stage of being a farce!
The dust is just about settling on the first presidential debate and the polls will begin coming out soon – we shall see what people thought about it – but that will be nothing compared to the VP debate if she makes a complete fool of herself – which, even though she is in debate camp from Tuesday onward, could happen.
I just cannot see Joe Biden holding back if she makes one mistake. He is, after all, a real attack dog – he has proven that already.
Unless the questions are geared all in her favour those two minutes will be taken up with her thinking about her answer. She could, if she flops, cost McCain the race.
I, for one, will be watching it.
