Why Did I Watch That Debate?

Because I'm wondering what the value of a "debate" with questions that the candidates aren't given in advance is if only one candidate actually, I don't know, answers the questions.

This is 2 hours of my life I'm never going to get back. Sigh.

After the first 20 minutes of yelling at the screen "answer the f-ing questions, Sara", I decided to listen to it while I folded laundry, stowed all the extra toilet paper and paper towels from costco, cleaned the kitchen etc.

It was still frustrating to listen to her give answers to questions she wasn't asked... but, the apartment is now nice and neat.

After the first two questions, I decided it was not worth my time. I would rather read. . . it wasn't as painful as the COuric interviews, but the ability to say nothing cheerfully did me in really fast.

When I woke up this morning NPR was saying how Palin did much better than expected and gave substantive answers. Sure, okay...she gave great answers to questions that weren't asked. Ugh.
