Dammit, and I'm even local. Extremely local. And a game nerd.

If it weren't for putting our holy terror of a son to bed...

YOU MUST ACCEPT THIS.

If only for the possible hilarity of something like this happening:



Or worse. I'm sure you can use your devious imagination to come up with something. Oh Christ, this is good.

Oh, of course I said yes!

Heh, I love the idea of plugging Battleground; maybe I should put up some of our store posters?

(Likelihood that my wife would agree to that: zero.)

Edit: if it's Intrepid Reporter Griff Jenkins, YOU KNOW WHAT YOU MUST DO. Your mission is clear.

If they do come over, make sure to put the horse outside and take away her wedding ring.

They just called back to confirm: they'll be coming over just before 9pm to do some interviews and then my impression is that they'll "report live" (using the interview footage) when the debate is over.

This just gets better and better.

You do realize you have the opportunity of a lifetime, don't you?

Ummmm...truth be told, I don't consider a brief interview with the local Fox News team to be exactly the opportunity of a lifetime.

I am probably going to wear my Your Move Games tee-shirt, though!

Good, even without Fox. More later; I'm off to bed.

Quick gut reaction: Palin did about what I expected her to do. Her performance was good enough to reassure conservatives who were wondering if she was a total moron but I don't think it will have been enough to convince moderates who aren't strongly motivated to find reasons to like her. There wasn't a lot "there" there.

Biden, meanwhile, also didn't self-destruct. I'd call it a small win for Biden except that in the context of the debate Palin probably gained more by blunting the downward slide she was on.
