Palin seems to be doing a bit better than former US Navy Admiral James Stockdale, the VP pick of indy candidate H. Ross Perot (whose whiny voice and nerdiness were the inspiration for Ross Geller of "Friends"), but not by much. We'll have to see if her debate with Senator Joe Biden plays better than Stockdale's 1992 performance.
All I remember from that debate were his one-liners that mocked his own unpreparedness: "ping-pong match" and "Gridlock!" The SNL skit in which the great comedian Phil Hartman (requiescat in pace) played the confused Stockdale is priceless. (I'm still looking for the clip on YouTube.)
The question is, who would replace Palin?Sphere: Related Content
