I meant to go to one of the viewing parties for last week’s debate—in transit to the location I got an invite from my sister to hang with her family (including their adorable almost-one-year-old). Gotta say, there’s no contest when it comes to a group of strangers, Biden (who I find amusing and likeable) and Palin (who I find both annoying and scary on multiple levels) versus the latter two with my sister, her awesome hub and their cute as a button, round-all-over, funny and super-sweet little one. The debate was a lot more palatable in their presence, I gotta say. That being said, I found this double-bill amusing at Central Cinema:
On a related note, I highly recommend checking out the SNL sendup of that debate:
I’m not an SNL fan as a rule—altho the Fey portrayals of Palin have been rightly praised, usually the sketches are waaaay too long for me. But I’d be hard-pressed to find anything to cut in this one. The added benefit for me is in watching Queen Latifah as Gwen Ifill. Very funny.
