Tonight’s the big VP debate.  Will Palin wilt under pressure?  Will Biden ask anyone to stand up?

God love ya!

Live blogging is a bit overrated for a grassroots blog like AMPG, so I’ll post a few links and comments to the “big boys” on the web.

Here are a few links to get started:

Live debate stream from ABC News.

Michelle Malkin has Biden Bingo.

Governor Palin comes out, “Hey, can I call you Joe?”

American Thinker is live blogging.

– Ten minutes in- it’s a snoozer.  Isn’t there a baseball game on?

Love Michelle Malkin’s live blog title, “Sarah vs. Smirky”

– Will Palin slam Biden/Obama on the Fannie/Freddie?

Gateway Pundit is live blogging, too.

GP says:

Great Line… Palin: “I may not answer the questions the way that the moderator or the Senator may want me to but I will speak to America.”

– Palin sends out a “bless their hearts” and Biden sends out a “God love ’em”

– More on direct talks with the gutters of the world.  Obama does support direct talks at a presidential level- it’s on his web site:

Lovely “in the tank article” from Time Magazine for post-debate readers:

Why Some Women Hate Sara Palin

Can you imagine an Obama  or Biden article like this?

Great line!! “Extra credit for 3rd graders in Alaska!”

The bottom line: unedited Palin is a completely different person than edited Palin.

She’s right- without the filter of the main stream media she looks like a completely different person.

Debate highlight:

Well, another debate in the books.  Biden did well, but Palin did much better.  That is because she had to overcome two highly edited interviews which did not portray her in a positive light.

Guess that all changes when the media filter is gone.

After Obama’s had a few weeks to think about his wonderful comment made at Saddleback and the inspiration for this blog, he offers this retraction (well, sort of, maybe, I don’t know, kinda) to his “above my pay grade” comment.

Via the AP:

Obama says he was too flip on abortion question

“Probably. …What I intended to say is that, as a Christian, I have a lot of humility about understanding when does the soul enter into … It’s a pretty tough question.

“And so, all I meant to communicate was that I don’t presume to be able to answer these kinds of theological questions,” he said in an interview broadcast Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

So tell me what he believes again?  He’s a had a few weeks.  Nice non-answer to the initial non-answer.

If you want to know what Obama really believes about abortion you need only to visit a YouTube video and Jill Stanek’s site.  He has no problem articulating his support of partial-birth abortion and voting for infanticide.

Obama says, “On this issue [abortion] I will not yield and Planned Parenthood will not yield”.  Watch the short video:

In the same article Biden takes a brave stand… and then gives the typical nuanced answer that all unborn babies love:

“I’m prepared as a matter of faith to accept that life begins at the moment of conception. But that is my judgment,” Biden said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “For me to impose that judgment on everyone else who is equally and maybe even more devout than I am seems to me is inappropriate in a pluralistic society.”

We’ve all heard this line for years.  It’s so noble.  Let’s play a little substitution game.

“I’m prepared as a matter of faith to accept that murder is wrong. But that is my judgment,” Biden said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “For me to impose that judgment on everyone else who is equally and maybe even more devout than I am seems to me is inappropriate in a pluralistic society.”

Joe could pop plagiarism in that first sentence, too.  Now that would be convenient.

“As Vice President of the United States I promise not to impose my views on anyone!  Except my last dogmatic statement, which actually is a view!”

By the way Joe and Barry, this is Trig.  He’s a person, not an “it” and not a “choice”.
