Overheard Conversation: Must-See TV

The moment we've all been waiting for has arrived. The VP debate. I expect this to have much higher ratings than your average vice-presidential debate, judging from all the talk there has been about it.

Coworker #1: Are you excited for tonight?

Coworker #2: Not at all.

Coworker #1: Why not? It's going to be a big night for Palin.

Coworker #2: Gwen Ifill is in no way unbiased. I can't believe they picked her to moderate.

Coworker #1: But won't people see right through that?

Coworker #2: In our country? Are you kidding me? People are raised on the liberal media and go through our liberal education system. If I were the McCain campaign, I would demand that they have someone else do it. Or even have a conservative moderator, since everything else is liberal-bent.

John McCain: I think Gwen Ifill is a professional and I think she will do a totally objective job because she is a highly respected professional...I have confidence that Gwen Ifill will do a professional job.

Sarah Palin: I'm not going to let it be a concern.

Coworker #1: I didn't know the moderator was a liberal. That's infuriating. I might not even watch it then.

Coworker #2: Yeah, well I'm having a few friends over to watch it at my house on the big screen; you're welcome to come join us.

Coworker #1: That would be great; I didn't have any plans for tonight other than watching it.

Love these people.

In other news, I tried ChaCha out yesterday and am already pretty sure it's the greatest thing ever. Because you never know when you're going to be at the bus stop and have it suddenly become very important to know which countries have legal gay marriage. I love the information age.

One thing people tend to forget about the "liberal" media is that media outlets tend to be owned by extremely large corporations, which are generally NOT known for their liberal sensibilities...as much as conservatives would like to believe in a liberal conspiracy controlling American media, I'm pretty sure that what the media/parent companies are most concerned with is making money. Cynical, yes, but ultimately comforting?

That's my take on it at least.

In response to your last post (delayed, I know):

If I had a nickel for every time I said, "I'm going to google that when I get home," but then forget about it five minutes later, then I would at least have a lot of nickels.

Okay...call me out of the loop, but what is ChaCha? It doesn't sound like you're talking about the dance here. You have very creative blogs, by the way.
