the best moment of the debate.

This is the shining moment of the debate.  This is where Biden won it.  He is just so genuine.

I keep thinking about this moment over and over.  And here is what struck me.  Without even meaning to, Biden did something very important for women in this election.  Palin plays the “mom” thing over and over again.  She’s just a hockey mom, she’s got kids, blah blah blah.  She talks about hardships.  These are things that resonate with women.  He showed that these are things that resonate with him as well.  He was a single parent.  He had to be a father, and a mother, at the same time.  So really, what he did, was show that women don’t have to vote for another woman to get someone who understands those experiences.  That’s huge.

And Sarah Palin didn’t even acknowledge what he had said or what he did.  She could have said something nice, but she didn’t.  Heartless.  Mean.  Unqualified.

samantha bee stings governor sarah palin.

As much as I want to, I can’t really hate Sarah Palin–oh don’t get me wrong–this has nothing to do with the bonds of sisterhood. I absolutely ABHOR her positions on, well, everything.  And her early 90s mall girl bangs. But she is so much fun to write about and make fun of that I can’t help but be slightly appreciative of her very existence.  And I’m not alone.  It’s like John McCain took his happy pills and threw us all a softball.  And leave it up to All-Star Jon Stewart to hit it out of the park.  Jon Stewart, you are my hero.

So watch this clip with Jon and Samantha Bee, a self described “Vagina-American” (HAHA!), as she oh-so-sarcastically talks about why she’ll vote for McCain.  You will for sure pick up some new anatomical terminology as well.  (I’m talking about lady parts.  Teehee.)

Huzzah!

And here is some more Daily Show goodness, brought to my attention by Alicia, our South Korea correspondent.  What a warm/appropriate welcome for the RNCers!

PS- I promise I’ll start writing about non-political stuff (aka NOT Sarah Palin) again…
