Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
Lynne: all in all, i think they both did well. i do wish to have heard a little more about each of them, and less about their respective presidential candidates
Dontre: Overall, I think Sarah stepped up to the bar and held her own. What's unfair is that she'll be judged favorably for being competent, when she should have done that from the outset. Biden is not only...Read more »
Emily: Do you all think these two sound a little TOO blue collar?
Lynne: oh, hey emily - what did YOU think?
Bragg: not right now
Kimberly: Biden got more blue collar as the night went on
Bragg: people want to hear politicians relate to them (or try to at least)
Dontre: The Republican dissenters can stuff it, there is nothing that you can say about Gwen!
Kimberly:...Read more »
Adrian: Calling a spade a spade is not going after someone. Asking someone what Supreme Court decisions they oppose and gettiing crickets in reply is not going after someone.
Dontre: Here is here memorized closing
Bragg: he'll have a memorized close as well
Dontre: let's see
not so rehearsed
Lynne: hello, it's a staged two-party debate - of course...Read more »
Kimberly: hahaha. she hasn't found something to compromise on because they've always found a way to..... compromise?
I was JUST thinking that!
Kimberly: haha.. it was like when McCain last week was like "I don't want to disagree and.... debate?"
duh! you're in a debate!
Bragg: as this begins to wind down, i think this likely keeps the race...Read more »
Meg: Yes, Sarah, you are correct: John McCain needs to leave.
Lynne: Oh good, Biden is taking on the "maverick" issue
Dontre: good for him!
he needs to debunk that frivolous moniker
and now she's one, too. . .please!
I know a maverick, Governor, and McCain is NO maverick!
Lynne: Look UP
Bragg: i think her record is one of a maverick. there is no denying...Read more »
Lynne: dude, Obama-Biden don't support gay marriage either.
"champ" -- say it ain't so, joe
Kimberly: hmmm, single parent stuff is interesting
Dontre: it's not about MARRIAGE, it's about RIGHTS
she said she's tolerant, dude
Lynne: these two crack me up.
Bragg: (that was his nickname growing up)
Adrian: Biden, SHUT UP!
Dontre: Did he just...Read more »
Kimberly: you lack discipline! - arnold
ala Kindergarten Cop
Lynne: Wow- the job interview question: what is your biggest weakness.
Bragg: that's pretty speculative, dontre...with all due respect...
Dontre: that's why I said ALLEGEDLY
Adrian: I don't think Palin understood the question
Palin, your not from the "heartland," you are from...Read more »
Kimberly: i'd like to point out they have not mentioned 9/11 once (or a veiled reference)
Adrian: She's rambling again...
Lynne: That's right - Cheney SHOT someone
Dontre: IN THE FACE!
Adrian: Did Palin' own a lemonade stand?
Dontre: no, a snowmobile company with her husband
Bragg: she should come back with "joe, i don't know what the vice president's...Read more »
Lynne: Children of special needs ARE part of the eduction discussion, Joe.
Dontre: I think it's interesting that she's more popular than the man who heads the ticket.
Adrian: So much for fear of them getting a second job!
Lynne: Wait...I thought he wanted to talk about education.
Dontre: No, they're talking about what they would do as VP
and...Read more »
Dontre: Are you serious? He moves through the line faster. . he's a Senator!
He takes Amtrak. . McCain flies!
Bragg: An Everyman on the Trail
Dontre: which is better?
Lynne: Any parent with a 3rd grader (or 2nd or 4th) is probably liking the shout out
Adrian: I'm glad the VP candidates are poor comedians....Read more »
