Tim Harper's article in the Star made me chuckle over my cornflakes this morning. Looking ahead to Thursday's U.S. Vice Presidential debate, Harper noted:
If Thursday's debate is television's highest-rated vice-presidential debate ever - as expected - it might be because U.S. politics is now drawing the type of crowd that flocks to car races. They say they are there for the speed, but a lot of them are there for the crash.
After the influx of YouTube clips featuring Sarah Palin stuttering her way through her Katie Couric interview, or her evisceration at the hands of "Saturday Night Live", I have to say I feel the same way.
I'll probably flip between the Canadian Leaders debate and the VP one, but as soon as Palin opens her mouth I know I'll be cringing along with the rest of us.
It should be funny but it's not.
