VP Debate - "The Reciter"

Well the verdicts are in on the VP debate (this one is even better, and here's another) last night and while everyone is amazed with the performance of Sarah Palin (and by amazed I mean, surprised she didn't wallow in complete gibberish throughout), it didn't make up for the fact that almost all intelligent people could tell she was just reciting talking points (sometimes just reading verbatim) and not answering any question, either directly or with any substantial specifics. Not only that but the fact-checkers have are having a heyday with her. Her answers all went something like this:

Moderator: What policies and plans will your ticket implement to effect positive change in the nation's floundering economy?

Palin: We're gonna' fix it! Believe you, couple of small town American mavericks are gonna make big changes and ruffle feathers in Washington. You can count on that.

If "Still President" Bush is "the decider", I'm dubbing Palin "the reciter". Bellow are some pics, some clips and the debate in it's entirety. Enjoy!

UPDATE: SNL delivers another scarily familiar but utterly hilarious skit, this time based on the VP debate, and once again starring Tina Fey as Palin. She better win an award for the amazing performances she has given in the past few weeks as Palin.

UPDATE 2: Monty Python veteran John Cleese comments on how the republican ticket sounds like a Python skit and how "The Reciter" resembles a parrot.
