We were pretty psyched last night about the debates. We got ourselves all set up with Chinese food, notebooks, knitting, and a remote control to switch between two pre-programmed debate channels. The plan was we’d watch the comedic American Vice-Presidential debate, tape the more serious Canadian leadership debate, and switch back and forth during commercials.
I knit a few rows and took only one note: it said “Six-Pack Joe and Hockey Mom.” (These are Sarah Palen’s nicknames for average Americans. Nice, eh?) I heard the words “Main Street” and “maverick” about 15 times.
Next thing I knew, we were waking up and the debates were over. I think we only caught the first five minutes.
Fortunately for all of us, Coyote was channeling Hunter last night, so his double debate coverage was more extensive and far freakier than mine.
