Still too busy to blog with substance, but a few things I wanted to spurt into the cyber-ethers:
-If one more person tells me that "All Sarah Palin has to do tonight is pronounce her own name correctly and remember to wear shoes and it will be a win for her" I'm going to kick them in the kneecaps. Hard. Everyone thinks Palin is a dolt, and managing to not drool on stage tonight won't make people suddenly think she's a born statesman. It will make people think she's somewhat less of a dolt. That's not a win.
Similarly, I'm tired of everyone theorizing on what Biden has to do to win. Know what he has to do to win? Shut the fuck up. Let her do the talking and stand back so he doesn't get splashed with stupid. The bar isn't low for Palin, it's low for Biden. If he doesn't walk across the stage and wank on her then it's a win for Biden.

Who knows? Maybe it's Fairey himself having a bit of fun - or some tiresome purist trying to stick it to him for "selling out."
