It will be interesting to watch the Daily Show the night after the VP debate.

If I were to offer Biden advice, it would be this- DO NOT get up there and rip into her!! Don't do it! Do NOT seem that you are patronizing her, belittle her or in any way attack her personally!
Instead, stand off, answer the questions accurately and to the point, do not interrupt her but do not allow her to interrupt you (she is very good at that) and stand back and let her destroy herself. Her lack of knowledge and her utter disregard for people will show. But if you are seen as attacking her, she wins with women and we HAVE to get women out to vote. So please, please, please, do not garner any sympathy for her. You do not have to destroy Palin. She will self destruct- just let her have all the rope she needs!

Either way he does it he will still tear her to shreds.

I agree, she doesn't need anyone's help to destroy any credibility she had/ or people thought she had.

Best advice Biden can get. Let us hope Biden is restrained else it will allow Palin to play the crying distressed dumbass and that will get some sympathy.

He already said that he is not going to do that. Last night he said 'I'm not going to be condescending like McCain was tonight'

She is in the big leagues now. Regardless if she is a woman, and I am a woman, she should be able to deal with anything he says, harsh or not. No mollycoddling for her. If she is going to be the potential President (of course, IMO, Obama is going to win) if something happens to McCain, heaven forbid, I want someone who can take a punch!

I agree with that strategy somewhat. One objection...could you say "SOME" women will see that as attacking?

Most women are too intelligent to have the sexist attitude of having to treat women differently.

Unfortunately there still are women stupid enough to expect special treatment.... your advice to Joe is pretty good...

Yes, we are. We absolutely are. She will earn no respect by hiding from the press. If she can't handle potential criticism she has no business in politics period.

She needs to go through trial by fire like everyone else before anyone should consider her worthy of the VP spot. If she doesn't step up to the plate now and stay there, those supporting her will continue to diminish daily.

She missed another golden opportunity to connect with voters last night in what should have been an easy interaction with the press. Is she really that afraid or that incompetent?

She's still trying to look up the long words.
