Palin vs Kirshenbaum

Apparently readers, sciblings, many bloggers, and C-SPAN agree it might be fun.

Okay folks, well I’m game if Sarah is…

    Economic crises or not, I’d pay to see this.

    Kirshenbaum – In a landslide!

    Unfortunately, it will never happen. Palin can’t even talk in complete sentences so Palin is to speaking what O’Leary is to writing,

    Palin would be left sobbing uncontrollably on the stage, begging for Vladamir Putin to rescue her from the meannie.

    While we would all love to see this, as Rich suggests, he would even pay to see it… (how about all proceeds going to ScienceDebate2008 to make sure that some organized effort continues)… the probability of anything like this happening is asymptotic to zero. The political powers that be, (Republican Party, Democratic Party) will never allow anything like this to happen, just like they will not allow any other party or independent candidate to participate in the media circus known as the presidential debates.

    Since Ross Perot had the impact that he did, it is just too much of a risk to allow a Ralph Nader, Bob Barr, Cynthia McKinney (Matt Gonzales, Wayne Allen Root, Rosa Clemente VP Candidates) into the discussion. Someone might figure out that they have better ideas than the stay-on-the-focus-group-tuned-message performance that we always seem to get.

    No one said this has to be taken seriously! Of course it will never be agreed to; so what? I think the point is the challenge, the satire, the fun, and the point, which is that no one is challenging Miss Hockey Mom. And the fun. Did I mention that?

    Sheril’s smarter, more articulate, more sensible, cares more about everything, and would dust Miss Alaska (Runner up) in a pageant any day.

    I think it’s a great way to stir up conversation about things rather than thinking it would ever really happen.

    Awesome! I want to watch! Can I get a ticket to the debate?

    You’re ‘game’? Aren’t you afraid that designation might allow Sarah Palin to shoot you from a helicopter?
