Most news sites are reporting that Sen. Joe Biden from Delaware and Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, the vice presidential nominees of the Democratic and Republican parties, respectively, will debate each other at 8 p.m. (CDT) Oct. 2 in the Washington University in St. Louis Athletic Complex, according to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). EGI News reporter Gil Le Bell has uncovered that this is no longer the case.A certain Arizona Senator running for President who asked not to be named gave Gil the inside scoop about Thursday night’s Vice Presidential Debate.
Gil: Thank you for meeting with me today Senator, I know your schedule is very busy.
Senator: No problem Gil. I always make time for EGI. Even when I was a POW I made time for EGI.
Gil: So tell me, are you concerned at all about Sarah Palin going into Thursday’s debate.
Senator: I admit that I was more than a little worried, with all her miscues and use of word salad even when asked a simple question like what newspapers does she read. Of course I didn’t have news papers when I was a POW, but apparently she couldn’t answer that. Anyway, we’ve worked around any concerns about her debate performance.
Gil: Really, how so?
Senator: Well, I was watching Saturday Night Live, and asked my aide why no one informed me that Sarah was doing the show. He said that he hadn’t been informed either, but pointed out how much better she was doing than usual. Later we found out that it wasn’t really Sarah Palin, but actually an actress named Tina Fey.
Senator: Anyway, long story short, we got on the phone with Ms. Fey and convinced her to do the debate instead. She is obviously more articulate than Sarah, and I really don’t think anyone will notice it’s not her.
Gil: That sounds like a winning plan.
Senator: If it works out as well as we expect, Ms. Fey may start doing all Sarah’s interviews for her.
Gil: Why have Sarah on the ticket at all then.
Senator: She appeals to our core voters base… urges.
