As I've said again and again, the bar for Sarah Palin has been set very low for her performance in Thursday's Vice Presidential debate. She is widely predicted to fail, and fail spectacularly. But we liberals shouldn't get ready to point and laugh just yet. For one thing, with the bar so low, if Palin only manages minor gaffes, she'll be considered a success.

And then there is the Joe Biden factor. I like the guy, though I haven't always agreed with his decisions. And his gaffes are legendary. Remember the "clean and articulate" assessment of Barack Obama? That's just one of many. So who is going to do worse?


On Thursday, Sarah Palin and Joe Biden will square off in what is surely the most anticipated vice-presidential debate in our nation's history. (A far less impressive distinction than it sounds.)

Far be it from us to make light of the electoral process, but this showdown's appeal seems directly related to the good chance that one or both candidates will make a complete fool of themselves. Let's face it: The dominance of the reality television genre proves Americans enjoy, if not demand, embarrassment in their entertainment. . .
