Dear God, I Know I’ve Been Unkind to You

And my doubt in your existence has only doubled since Nickelback got nominated for a Grammy, but dear sweet Jesus, please please please let an Al Gore v. Sarah Palin climate change debate happen. Please. Please. I don’t ask much of you Lord. Please.

This is from Palin’s appearance on Laura Ingraham’s radio show:

Ingraham: Would you agree to a debate with Al Gore on this issue?

Palin: Oh my goodness. You know, it depends on what the venue would be, what the forum. Because Laura, as you know, if it would be some kind of conventional, traditional debate with his friends setting it up or being the commentators I’ll get clobbered because, you know, they don’t want to listen to the facts. They don’t want to listen to some reasonable voices in this. And that was proven with the publication of this op-ed, where they kind of got all we-weed up about it and wanted to call me and others deniers of changing weather patterns and climate conditions. Trying to make the issue into something that it is not.

Ingraham: But what if it’s an Oxford-style, proper debate format. I mean, he’s going to chicken out. I mean, if you challenge him to a debate, do you actually think he would accept it?

Palin: I don’t know, I don’t know. Oh, he wouldn’t want to lower himself, I think, to, you know, my level to debate little old Sarah Palin from Wasilla.”

Please please please.

    i can’t count as high as there are things wrong with what she said.

    my first few faves:

    “because Laura, as you know, if it would be some kind of conventional, traditional debate with his friends setting it up or being the commentators..”

    conventional, traditional debates are set up by friends of one of the participants? friends of one of the participants moderate a traditional, conventional debate?

    “because Laura, as you know, if it would be some kind of conventional, traditional debate with his friends setting it up or being the commentators I’ll get clobbered because, you know, they don’t want to listen to the facts.”

    People in traditional, conventional debates get clobbered when they present the facts? people in traditional, conventional debates don’t want to listen to facts? Al Gore and his friends don’t want to listen to facts, i.e. don’t want to face inconvenient truths? not wanting to listen to facts is the way to clobber someone in a debate?

    i guess she would know.

    Holy crap. I want this to happen. This will be the feel-good comedy of the decade! They’ll talk about this in the bathrooms for years!

      What bathrooms are you hanging out in?

        The ones where they scribble phone numbers on the stall doors.
