It's going to be so awesome. According to my sources, Palin can't read.

But she's a woman so you have to vote for her.

Only if I support women's rights and women in positions of power.

So... I don't think that I will.

Wasn't there a similar plan for the presidential debate that just didn't happen at all?

That was on a Friday, it makes a world of difference.

All I'm saying is that the confidence is extremely low on this end.

I guess the plans changed without warning? I wasn't the one who changed the plans, so I don't know, but why would I think this is any more likely to happen than the last one?

Look, I'm for it, I think it would be fun, but I won't be betting the farm on it.

Because I live far away, the debates last 90+ minutes and start at 9 pm meaning Liza and I couldn't leave until almost 11, you walked out of DOOMCom after 7 pm to go to medical and didn't know if you would be back for the debates, and no one else was coming to watch them so there was no point in staying.

Since it's a Thursday, and likely you won't have to go to medical, many of those problems don't exist this time. There has been a ton of naysaying from every front lately, let's get off that.

Speaking of subjugating women, I have a book from 1914 in front of me at this library titled "The Case Against Nightwork for Women" which summarizes the state of New York's argument in a case against a factory that was employing women for the night shift, which was against the law at the time.

Apparently the argument was that the state was justified to protect its societal interests in women being domestic and reproducing over her interest in wage work. The state's lawyer denied the possibility that women could make a competent decision about whether or not to work at night. And he won.

Wait, really?

Or did you mean "only if I support women's rights and women in positions of power to a greater extent than anything else." (e.g., the potential to be a good VP.)

My original statement stands. It's consistent with the character I play in DOOMCom.

Since it's consistent with your character in general, and you play yourself in DOOMCom?
