Let’s Play Palin VP Bingo!

With the eagerly anticipated Vice Presidential debate between Alaska Govenor Sarah Palin and Senator Joe Biden, I thought now would be a good time for Sarah Palin Bingo. Although Sarah came on like gangbusters, lately her star has been falling. From the get-go she has lied about her record on the “bridge to nowhere”, Alaska’s energy contribution to the United States, her position on climate change and a whole host of other subjects. And although she’s conducted only a handful of interviews, her answers have made conservatives increasingly cringe.

Given all this and the fact that a growing number of right-wing strategists have said she should resign from McCain’s campaign, I thought it would be fun to keep track of the items sure to pop up during the debate on October 2nd. You can download and print out the PDF version of Palin VP Bingo so you can play along at home, or just check the Palin Bingo Page following the debate to see how we did.

NOTE: If for some strange reason the VP debate gets cancelled, it’s an instant Bingo. Now go download and have fun!

UPDATE: Well the debate is now one for the history books (thank goodness). I’m sorry to say we didn’t manage to call a Bingo! but it was fun none-the-less. If every space on the board had been filled with “maverick” then we all would have easily won. Sarah seemed to mention it ALOT in the last half of the event, especially in the closing minutes. And while she held her ground and didn’t provide the train wreck that I think so many on the left were hoping for, I think it’s pretty clear she doesn’t have the stuff to be one heart beat away from the Presidency. She didn’t answer questions, kept falling back on talking points, repeatedly mispronounced names and relied too heavily on “folksy” sayings.

Biden for his part seemed off-stride for the first half, but picked up steam in the end. He didn’t put his foot in his mouth as I expected he would (which was great) and gave more solid answers to a number of questions than Palin did. In the end, I don’t think this debate changed much, and after the right’s relief that Sarah didn’t screw up wears off, I think people will realize how little she actually said.

    the FDR on TV thing confused me. I thought that was a Biden gaffe.

  2. Ged says:

    It is a Biden gaffe, but I’m willing to bet she’ll mention it during the debate.

  3. Jason Arber says:

    I hope that isn’t Comic Sans you did that in, Ged!

  4. Eric O'Connell says:

    Jason, that’s Marker Felt. But what I really like is “Sarah Palin” in Nueva. Fantastic choice.

  5. Kevin Conner says:

    It’s Marker Felt.

    Nice one John! Although I have to say my choice of marker felt kicks comic sans’ ass any day of the week. You’re also at a disadvantage since you didn’t give Joe a “free space”.

    Let’s tally cards after the debate and see who (if anyone) won. :-)

    Palin is a Master Debater. All you need to do it look at the photo on this site and you’ll believe me.

  10. Thursday’s v.p. debate will be interesting to see how Biden handles Palin. Will he attack her or allow her to fall on her own sword? She’s done a good job of the latter thus far.

    I’ve made the tiles independent of the board, added some tiles, and added a random generator. Now you can generate lots of different boards!

    The card needs to be updated now that she’s been told not to speak abut certain things (i.e. bridge to nowhere) at rallies…

    The ones that spew trash, are just
    unhappy with them selves.
