If there's no debate tonight, then probably the first presidential debate will replace the Vice Presidential debate, which will spare America more of what you're about to see.
If even for a second you find yourself thinking "Well, she's not doing THAT badly," please recall that:
1. Why should we spend 700 billion to bail out rich guys who made stupid choices and profited from them when that money could do a lot of good other places?
2. How again does being Governor of Alaska give you foreign policy experience?
are COMPLETELY OBVIOUS QUESTIONS that the campaign has to have prepared her for extensively because there was just no way they weren't being asked.
