My Fellow Delawarian

Published by at 7:44 pm under The Daily Grind

I am aflutter over the performance of the senator from my native state tonight.

I don’t know how he managed to keep his composure when debating (if you can call it that) that rabid airhead — though his mic did catch a couple of deep sighs when Palin waxed particularly inane. I mean, really: There is only one man in this race who has really ever fought for you, and that’s Senator John McCain.

A couple times I nearly leapt out of my seat in joy over what Biden said, and since then I’ve been strolling around my house humming a little song I just made up: I’m from DELA-ware. Neener neener neeeener!

Sure, Biden overdid and underdid it a few times, but his observations like this particularly impressed me:

Vice President Cheney has been the most dangerous vice president we’ve had probably in American history… The primary role of the vice president of the United States of America is to support the president of the United States of America… The Constitution is explicit.

The only authority the vice president has from the legislative standpoint is the vote, only when there is a tie vote. He has no authority relative to the Congress. The idea he’s part of the Legislative Branch is a bizarre notion invented by Cheney to aggrandize the power of a unitary executive and look where it has gotten us. It has been very dangerous.

I’m from Delaware, lala lala laaaaa la.

That’s the chorus running through my brain. But underneath is a drone so sinister it stops my breathing: What if McCain wins.

    I don’t care what anyone says. I love John McCainJohnMacaneMcane and I love Sara Palin too also!!… more than ever now!!!! The one question, however, the good moderator should have asked but did not was, and to BOTH of the contestants, to be fair, please: If you were asked by the President of the USA for a blow job, would you deliver… and gratefully? None of these obfuscational questions about gay marriage, now. No beating around the BUSH or the bush. Lets just get down to the MEAT of the matter, shall we. An American Voter who LOVES our new Republican MASTER and Moose Snot Slavette wants to know!! We are saved now and I will be better for it. Support the troops !!!! no matter what the fuck they do.

  2. As another semi-ex-Delawarean I was very happy to see Biden at his best. Twenty years ago I’d write various politicians letters, and Biden *always* wrote the most detailed and clear responses. He’s been in the Senate forever, but never spoke or wrote like a politician: he’d always be putting his foot in his mouth because he spoke while thinking rather than memorizing pat answers. Palin hasn’t been in office as long, but was all soundbites at the debate.

    I was so proud of Iditarod Barbie. She…she…just seemed so plucky as she blew off the questions and spoke straight to the American people about how much she cares for us. I haven’t seen anything so heartworming (sic) since the gals in the Miss America contest sobbed out their answers to the “Why I Love My Country” question.

    High marks to Biden for not projectile vomiting over his podium. The man has cast iron plumbing.

    Anyone else catch the waffle in her response about equal rights for gays? Yeah, she loves ’em (especially if the give up their disgusting, perverted ways through the power of prayer). But she actually _dodged_ the question about whether that sort of vermin deserve full constitutional protection.

    Yeah, she’s just as cute as a button. On a storm trooper’s fly.
