    Holy crap...I wanted to reach into the monitor and SMACK the woman.

    Setting aside party affiliations for a moment, the woman CANNOT stay on topic. She seemed to constantly trying to push the discussion away from any actual discussion and she kept repeating rhetoric over and OVER again. In the beginning when Blitzer specifically asked her to stay away from vague topics regarding taxes and three sentences in, that's exactly where she went. She shut down pretty fast when she got asked about evolution

    Re: O'Donnel, Coons live debate thread

    I would like to ask O'Donnell and Palin these questions:

    1) How many justices sit on the supreme court?

    2) Who was the third President?

    3) Civil War, what years?

    just for ****s and giggles...

    I've never found pop quizzes very helpful in determining someone's intelligence or readiness for a post.

    Hell I couldn't answer those questions off the top of my head with no notice and the answers I had before looking them up would be incomplete. If something doesnt come up very often in a person's memory, it tends to be pushed back in the brain and not as readily accessible. Your brain isnt good at remembering specific details. You may remember "Civil War" and at one point you may have known that it went from 1861 to 1865, but without accessing that information, you end up where I was when I first read the question where I could remember the 1860's part, but I couldnt place the exact years. Eventually, I'd be down to only remembering 1800's and further still I'd know it was a long time ago but not remember quite when until I re-learned the fact.

    Try this, close your eyes and try to recite the first line of my signature from memory. You probably couldnt, even though you see it frequently and you may even know where it came from and have studied it. But it's not something you have to deal with on a regular basis so you tend to forget it. You may remember I have a signature and that it's short, but not quite what it was.

    I'd like to ask Obama one question. Where in the Constitution does the United States guarantee a socialist form of government?

    If you don't have an answer, just say so.

    The point of those questions would be to show those two candidates as totally incompetent.

    ...and shaming anyone who would ever consider voting for them.
