More Laughs

Please forgive me: I'm a little swamped. Partly because I can't get myself away from politics and the economy. Of course, I couldn't help but share with you the latest installment of the Palin/Couric interview. But first, a laugh from Bill Maher:

And you know how I love the Daily Show:

How, how, how...

Can't name a newspaper. Regulator of gas?

I love Charlie Gibson - you've said a lot of words but I didn't hear an answer - or however he phrased it... I'm glad they're calling her out on her nonsense. They aren't being mean, just making her explain herself.

So she's the regulator of gas and oil? Now we know who to blame for the gas prices.

Melanie, I mean, wasn't it totally obvious she was lying? It's clear from her interviews and her answers that she is ill-informed.

Isn't that hilarious, Edie? That just cracks me up. It's pitiful!

In all seriousness, do her supporters just turn a blind eye to all this? And I'm not talking about the Republican party bigwigs, I mean the regular people around the country who believe she'll do good things in a position of power. I don't understand how they can see this and still back her.

Melanie, I think part of it is her charisma with a crowd. She's great at the rallies, eats the crowd up, and they her.

It's just, they can't hide the fact that she knows nothing, LOL! And you're right: a lot of Republicans are calling for her to back out. There's a lot of pressure riding on Thursday. You have to admire her for that.

But not enough to run the country!

She reminds me a lot of George W Bush. They both have the ability to charm a crowd without ever really saying anything. I guess it makes them seem like they could be your neighbor.

I'm not sure why some Politicians insist on giving a 'whirlwind of words' when asked questions, but there it is.
