MSM Reports on the Palin-Biden Debate Before it Happens
I paused the debate to see what others were saying, and I find out that the AP jumped the gun and already filed all of their reports before the debate even started.
Wow. I just don't know what to say about this. I mean, as someone said in the comments, we always knew the MSM was in the tank for the Dims, but they used to hide it. No such formalities any more. No more Mr. Nice Guy...be ready when it hits you.
Here's one of the AP reports filed on the debate before it occurred. And here's a AP reporter Jim Kuhnhenn reporting on the debate in past tense before it happened.
I'm going to go back and finish watching the debate, but somehow I get the feeling that the actual debate itself will have very little affect on what the liberal media reports.
Wow. I don't know what else to say. Wow.
Update: OK. Just paused the debate again. I think Sarah Palin is sharp. She's had some strong moments. I'll cover those in a minute. For now, however, I have to say that we're about a stone's throw of having someone else in the White House that can't pronounce "nuclear". How on earth can anyone pronounce Ak-mah-din-eh-jahd correctly without a hiccup, but then say "newk-yew-lehr" in the same sentence?"
Update 2: I watched the debate tonight. It took me a while because I drank a bottle of wine over the course of the skirmish. I have to say this - I'm not in a position to say who won. I think the debates are a Rorschach test. You project your beliefs onto them. If you're still undecided at this point, I seriously think you shouldn't be allowed to vote.
I believe that intelligence is a curse. This is a position I've held for some time. Being a member of the intelligentsia means that you're forever attempting to explain complicated issues to dullards.
My ACT scores put me in the 99.9 percentile in the nation. I am a member of Mensa. I've had the great fortune of talking to some exceptionally intelligent and insightful people. And what does it get me? Not much, unfortunately.
Mostly what it brings is frustration. The frustration of trying to explain to people how taxes drain the economy. How taxing yourself into prosperity is like standing in a bucket and trying to lift yourself by the handle. Why capitalism is better than socialism. Why socialism and communism are inseparable.
Today, the average person asks not what they can do for their country, but what their country can do for them. This is the zeitgeist.
I think that Sarah Palin is a brilliant person with a bright future in the Republican party. But I also think that a democratically elected government is only as intelligent as the people they represent. And regrettably, we've watered down our gene pool. We've watered down the voting rights and the average voting American today has zero understanding of economics. No understanding of what it means to be an American. And hence, no pride in being an American.
And tonight, I could see for the first time, that we will lose. America will lose. We will lose, not because Palin lost the debate. Not because of anything that Obama or McCain said or did. We will lose, not because we are wrong. We will lose because the idiots outnumber us. God save us all.
