Well, the final verdict of tonight's VP debate has been formally issued by RedState, and I for one welcome our Republican overlords.
I guess it's not such a big deal if your candidate completely lacks substance if you don't have any of your own to speak of.
Oh, and it really is painful how stupid these people are:
Of course, Joe Biden referred to "Bosniacs" so the gaffes were not one-sided and for a Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to refer to "Bosniacs" . . . well, it's kinda interesting, to say the least. I wonder if people will make an issue of it. They should and they most certainly would if Sarah Palin made that comment. Again, it is kind of silly that we are penalizing candidates for innocent verbal flubs that have little to nothing to do with how they would govern, but fair is fair and this gaffe deserves a fair amount of ridicule. Wonder what the Bosnians thought about this statement.
And as a commenter points out:
I'm so not the expert here but I think using Bosniaks is correct.
Burn. When the commenters at RedState are giving you overly polite corrections, you know you suck. Oh, and I really like how he admits that it's silly that a single verbal slip-up should be used against politicians, but that Biden deserves ridicule for it anyway. That's very big of him.
Oddly, he doesn't suggest that Palin be ridiculed for her "General McClellan" slip-up, which, in my mind, suggests someone who memorized a bunch of stuff but wasn't really familiar enough with the material to get the details straight. But there's no way that's the case, as Palin is from Alaska, which is on the same planet as both General McKiernan and Afghanistan. I'm sure she's the utmost expert on General McKiernan in the entire universe.
