A gaffe is just a gaffe. A few gaffes here and there in a perfectly capable person - who cares? If anything it's good entertainment.

Gibberish speakers on the other hand confound even the conservatives who want to understand whether Palin is a Bushite or a Reaganite. Gibberish isn't entertainment - it's puzzlement, befuddlement and utter confusion - the chaotic babbling of conservative keywords in disconnected sentences.

Gibberish is terminal, and not just for the English language. Gaffes are simply a mild allergy that result in snickering and occasional guffaws; in the right person, even quite endearing.

That is probably why Virginia is turning blue. Virginians, even the real ones, can't handle McCain's Choice of Gibberish Sarah - his Nightmare Date from Alaska.

Meanwhile, still no medical records from Palin. Why? Mental Issues?

Well, only one of those is on offer. My choice, therefore, is neither.

Yeah, and he must have forgotten all of that just before the VP debate.

Wait, speaking of medical records, did we ever get anything beyond that 1-page "he's healthy enough to play" note from Obama's doctor?

For that matter, did we ever get Kerry's full military papers?

You'll have to explain that logic again. Biden can't get facts straight, misremembers events in his life and is somehow capable? I'll give you he's entertaining in a Clark Griswold sort of way.

If Obama does win, I'll be upset because I think it will be bad for the country. I'll immediately start working towards his defeat in '12 but people like Mike will suffer angst I can't imagine based on the vitriol that oozes forth. I would almost enjoy the spectacles that will abound if I wasn't really decent at heart. Well maybe a few of them.
