the scratch. vp debate

Joe Biden was unable to do to Sarah Palin what Katie Couric had done repeatedly over the past week. Maybe Obama should have picked Couric. What is more obscene- that Couric, the former host of the entertainment program “The Today show” whose only mandate is to sell shit has one of the to top three news jobs in the country or that Obama was to proud to pick Clinton as his VP- a choice that would have sealed up this election a long time ago. We would have never heard of Sarah Palin. Instead we get the irony of the black man taking all of the color, the life, the joie di vive out of jumpin Joe Biden, effectively neutering him.


It is impossible for me to break down the Vice Presidential debate (see the full debate) without considering a seemingly unrelated news story. Chew on this as you prep your water cooler arguments about the VP debate between the sex-pot swine and the neutered country club lap dog:

America’s finest news source reported recently in an article headlined Members Of Twisted Sister Now Willing To Take It

In a stunning reversal of their long-stated reluctance to take it, members of heavy-metal band Twisted Sister announced Monday that, after 24 years of fervent refusal, they are now willing to take it. “I acknowledge that we promised not to take it anymore, but things change. The world is a different place today, and with that in mind, we would like to go on record as saying that, starting right now, we are going to take it,” read a statement released by the band’s lead singer, Dee Snider. “To clarify, we would still prefer not to take it, but as of now, taking it is an option that we would be open to. That is all.”

The youth anthem, “We’re not gonna take it” was released in 1984.

Orwell would have appreciated the resistance even as he could have predicted the state sponsored response.

The commission on Presidential debates hijacked the electoral process in 1987 and has run every presidential and vice presidential debate since, insuring, among other things, that you are going to take it America.

You are going to accept at face value the a farce of a debate where the moderator wrote a book, due out on inauguration day entitled “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama” as a real debate.” as if she did not have a finacial stake in the outcome of the race.

You are going to take a democratic party that claims with a straight face to be both for “legal protections for gay couples” yet against gay marriage and walks a similarly ridiculous line on any number of issues, not the least of which being that the Democrats tell you they want to end the war even as Obama claims he will increase the military budget.

Listen up Democrats, unless the increased military budget is going to be used so that military doctors can start admisistering free healthcare to the 47 million Americans who have no insurance- even under your plan OBAMA- this two step does not fly.

You are going to take a former Sports reporter looking into the camera and addressing the American male as “Joe Six-pack” while smiling bobbing and weaving questions.

You are going to take this sham of a debate where campaigns that are on the ballot in enough states to mathematically have a chance at winning are excluded from the process.

You are going to go to your water coolers and your chat rooms and your local bar and debate Biden/ Palin like it matters.

What do I have to do to get through to you people? Dress up in tights and make up and front a glam rock band?

When are you going to grab the banner out of Dee Snider’s tired arms and declare loud and clear

We’re not gonna take it!
