May I Call Yah Joe?

Watching it live. The above headline was the governor's opening line. How's it going? No fireworks yet, but she just said betcha. How will it end up? I'll get back to yah.

So i watched it thinking: If these two were ordering fast food how would they order it?
Biden: "I'll have a number three and a small diet coke."
Palin: "Oh ya know, food is so important to me that, I just have to say that, in this tough economic time you need to make the choices that are best for you and your country. Thats why mavricks like myself will make sure you have the freedom to order what our administration thinks is the best for you, and Joe Sixpack ,and the women who have given birth to soccer balls. "

Swirling nodes of transient thought, indeed!

Gavin - Alternately she might say, "Ya know, one of my best friends works at a fast food joint as well, and I gotta tell ya, although that's not a lifestyle choice I've made, my own family has such a range of extremes that I won't try to judge the choices they made."

When she said Joe Sixpack it took me a while to realize she was talking about some guy drinking beer. My first thought was abdominal muscles, guys with no shirts and the gym. I guess it's a measure of how little I had actually invested myself in the debate.

Mark - Since we were both drinking Chardonnay and Cosmos last Saturday, it also probably tell you what kind of six-packs that are usually in our minds.

great set of comments! ms pain's use of language both body and oral was toooooo much last night - wink, wink, nod, nod.....

my theory about her being chosen because of some joe sixpack's notion of sexuality is gaining credibility after last night's performance. and I must say her experience as a beauty contestant seems to be paying off....flashes of the movie "miss congeniality"

(of course until last night I never knew there was a 'construct' named joe sixpack - my image though was of some couch potato with a horribly large beer belly and his working iq rivaling his shoe size)

Mouse - Maybe all those year's of asking beauty pageant contestants how they would bring about world peace is paying off. Dontcha think?
