What with all the doom and gloom we've heard in the financial realm these past two weeks, I'm ready for some fun. Well Thursday night is the night. The first vice presidential debate of this 2008 election campaign.
I don't care who you're voting for, you have to smile just a bit when these two candidates speak. First there's Palin. Unless you've been hiding under a rock this week then you are well aware of her comments about Putin raising his head in American air space. What?
And then there's Biden telling Katy Couric that when the stock market crashed in '29 that FDR was right there on the television telling America exactly what was going on. What? (Herbert Hoover was president when the market crashed in 1929 and radio, not television, was the medium of the day.)
Folks...this is great entertainment! My advice is to take a break from MSNBC or CNN or from where ever you get your financial news. Make some popcorn, sit back and enjoy yourself for an hour or so. You may not get another chance for quite a while.
Does anyone else think these two are fodder for the late night shows?
Send in your comments - before or after the debate...
