One can only take so much...

Does anyone else find the constant "you betcha," "doin'," "findin'," "gonna'," squints, crinkle faces, and winks annoying from tonight's debate incredibly annoying?

Seriously, I know that Palin has been mocked about being charming and coy when pressed for details...but tonight? I found it almost demeaning.

I have respect for anyone who votes knowingly about whichever candidate that they endorse and believe in. And I know that people disagree with me on my candidate choice. We may have fundamental differences between what we believe - and I can respect any person's belief. Even if it differs from mine. But blindly voting for someone who happens to have ovaries cannot be the solution.

Tonight, the choice for me was clear. Should their running mate die, one of these people will run our country. We must make that matter.

I encourage you to read up on the facts of both candidates and what they stand for. I encourage you to read the transcripts of tonight's debate and read who really answered the questions that were asked and who did not.

I cannot stand some of the things that came out of her mouth. She knows how to deliver a speech, you betcha' - but does she even know what she's saying? Is she aware that the reason why she has failed in all of her interviews by the "mainstream media" is because their questions didn't come from the scripts that she had prepared? I love how she closed with "I love answering these questions" - I wanted to scream, "WHAT QUESTIONS HAVE YOU ANSWERED?" You sidestepped them, you didn't answer directly to the pointed questions that were asked.

UGH!

I don't claim to be an expert, but isn't a skilled debater someone who answers questions that make them or their side look better while sidestepping those that would make them look bad? I like Palin, but I do think that she seemed like she was at a PTA meeting and not the VP debate. But I'm just sayin'. :)

I was thrilled to read in articles that others felt the same way. Whew. I'm glad that not ALL of America is stupid. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to continue watching "The Best of Redneck Weddings."
