Busy Saturday in the SoFla blogosphere. Must of been the overcast skies that kept every one in and near a computer. As a result, we have an extensive Sift for you this evening...
A- Shorter babalu:
The American public is too stupid to realize that John McCain may have won the debate last night, but we, and all political aficionados, know better.B- Man or Maniac takes a hard look at an off the cuff remark that John McCain made last night that, when closely examined, reveals a lot about McCain's judgment.

G- Blast Off! makes a prediction for next Thursday.
Thursday morning, Sarah Palin will announce that she has to pull out of the VP debate scheduled for that evening in St. Louis (at my law school alma mater, incidentally) because baby Trig -- remember him? -- is ill.
"I regret that I will not be able to meet with Sen. Biden as previously scheduled," the statement released by the campaign will say, "but my first responsibility is as a mother. My son Trig, who as you know is a Down's Syndrome baby, is ill, perhaps critically, and so he must come first.
"I hope Sen. Biden understands but, more importantly, I know the American people understand."
