Nobody votes for No. 2

Last night was not a playoff game, it was an exhibition. Heavy, heavy amounts of booze were needed to get through 90 minutes of the most irritating accent of all time, but out of the haze, there are some things that can be taken away from the debate.

Ultimately, this post should have ended with the title: Nobody votes for No. 2. It’s a pretty tried-and-true rule of politics. Yeah, Lloyd Bentson kicked Dan Quayle’s ass. Did it matter? No. (As an aside, watching Giuliani on TV right now – he looks like Nosferatu. Or Bat Boy.)

Gov. Sarah Palin’s performance came down to the fact that the bar was so low for her that if it were any lower, she would have to look to avoid tripping over it. All she had to do was avoid looking like a moose in headlights and try not to drool on herself.

Ironically, for Sen. Joe Biden, it wasn’t too different. But, since he wasn’t the story going into this debate, people aren’t really talking about it. What Biden had to do was to avoid a major gaffe. He managed to do so.

The real thing, though, is pronunciation. It’s “nuclear,” not “nucular.” For the love of all that is holy, say it right.
