For God’s Sake, Will You Just Answer the Question?

October 2nd, 2008 · 3 Comments

I’ve rather deliberately been trying to lay off the issue of Palin’s lack of experience and the absurdity of McCain picking her to soon become — as likely as not — the President of the United States.  As we head into the Vice-Presidential Debates tonight, I am no longer able to restrain myself.
