We'll see. But Letterman did a pretty good job. (Worth watching the whole thing, trust me)

COURIC: But he's been in Congress for 26 years. He's been chairman of the powerful Commerce Committee. And he has almost always sided with less regulation, not more.

PALIN: He's also known as the maverick, though. Taking shots from his own party, and certainly taking shots from the other party. Trying to get people to understand what he's been talking about — the need to reform government.

COURIC: I'm just going to ask you one more time, not to belabor the point. Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation?

PALIN: I'll try to find you some, and I'll bring them to you ya'.

Lady looks like she's about to have a nervous breakdown.


she is so fucking stupid

I hate the way she keeps referring to "Amer'ca" as if she weren't a part of it. Like, "well, this could happen to youze guys if you're not careful, and if it does, good luck to ya."

I don't know, it seemed really petty to me.  Letterman has a legendary ego and temper and he let the ugliness that I've seen live at tapings show on camera.  Whether his motives for suspending his campaign are sincere or not, McCain would have been roundly criticized for going on a late night talk show yucking it up when the vote for the bailout is taking place.  It's probably more appropriate for McCain to do a the evening news instead of sharing the stage with a Dave and a washed up Sportscaster like Olbermann.  I'm sure Katie Couric isn't too happy to be lumped in with Rachael Ray either.

You know it's bad when you're getting taken to pieces by Katie Couric. I actually felt bad for Palin for a minute while that was happening.

With all due respects, this is exactly the reaction they are counting on to help win. Feel it, my comrade, but let it be the pity that dare not speak aloud.

Wait, what does "great" mean again?
"Dad gets mad."
