The debate: No subtle rebuttal!

October 2, 2008

Hey, Blog Guy! So, are you pumped for this debate tonight? Will it be dominated by the economy, foreign affairs or what?

debate-combo-this-240.jpgYou didn’t know? They’ve agreed to an all-out XTREME monster debate!. Look at this photo of the stage. The candidates will use backhoes, power drills, grappling hooks, flame-throwers…

Awesome! I bet Palin comes sliding in on a snowmobile!

She wanted to, but eventually she gave up that option in return for getting to use a rocket jet pack and a chainsaw. These two are going for blood!

You really think so?

Well, that’s what Don King said at the weigh-in.

Why don’t we just settle this whole campaign thing with arm wrestling. Who would win? Biden or Palin? Personally, I think Palin would drive home with Biden tied to the front of her car like a dead deer.

I should hope not! I’d rather have a scrawny VP that knew how to think than one that was all brawn and no brain. I know America is all about quality TV entertainment, but I think that would be taking it a bit too far. There have been enough comic speeches the last 8 years, and I think a regine change is due.

Oh… Well, I was just thinking that Washington U. Banner looks a little blah…

I guess based on these comments it would probably be inappropriate to suggest a duet on a musical floor keyboard, huh?

Elizabeth … Betsy … Liz:

Loosen your straps! “. . . [N]ot the serious kind”!

Oddly enough used to be interesting and on-topic…it seems like now their headlines have little to do with the “content” that is provided in them. For example, what does this headline “subtle rubuttal” have to do with the blithe comments in the “article”. It’s asinine…get relevant reuters.

palin’s facial gesture reminds me of someone singing the beginning of Spongebob Squarepant’s theme song. Ooooooooh who lives in a pineapple under the sea?

elizabeth said we need a regine change, I can only assume she meant regina change. I don’t think the US should be telling the Canadians what they should do with Regina, SK.

Ok, I usually try to stick to simple one-liners but… DOGGONIT! What is with the whole ‘Nookyaler’ thing anyway? I don’t get it? When (and why and how) did it become dignified to mangle a word like that?

Bandage, I wouldn’t embrangle myself in that linguistic mess. Bacon, I really think your comment was uncalled for.

Dr. Doll, that’s good advice, I should try not to get all flusterated over these things.

Dangit. Now I have the Spongebob song stuck in my head. Thanks, adrienne. Now I’ll be humming it all day.
