Sarah Palin Bye-Bye Watch

The wheels have fallen off the Palin train, the rats are fleeing the sinking ship and the McCain campaign is beginning to realize it has a world-class disaster on its hands. Even her own campaign people are calling Palin "clueless". After a mock debate and town hall presser meant to shore up Palin's coherency, McCain insiders wept openly: "What are we going to do?"

What indeed? The VP debate is looming on the horizon like a thundercloud, and all indications are that Palin will be demolished, squashed like a salmonberry with ease by Smokin' Joe Biden.

Somehow the GOP has to stop that debate from happening. They tried to "delay" it to "an unknown time" (like November 5th). That didn't work. Now what? Will a family emergency call SaWah home to Alaska and Mitt Romney (or someone) heroically step in to pick up the slack? I think that's exactly what will happen, it's just a matter of whether they're smart enough to do it tonight (so it's old news by Monday).

Can you imagine John McCain's brain right now? It must be squirming like a toad. I wonder how he'll do in the debate tonight?

UPDATE: Here we go... Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
