When you see me on the “Talking Liberally” pre-debate special later today on Current (7E/4P), just check out Mama’s nails. They will be, if you’ll excuse my immodesty, gorgeous (just like Barbra Streisand’s were the one time I met her and turned into Chris Farley on the spot: “Oh my God, you’re Barbra Streisand, you’re great! I bet everyone tells you that. Oh wow, I can’t believe I said that. I’m so sorry. You’re my biggest fan … I mean, I’m your … YOU’RE BARBRA STREISAND!”)
But I digress. I was talking about my nails because they will not be chewed down to my fingertips. Nor will my hands be red from two weeks of wringing. I’m not worried about the president tonight. He always come through when it counts. Just like Martha Raddatz did last week when she showed us what a good moderator looks like. This was in stark contrast to Jim Lehrer, who let Mittens get away with lying for 90 minutes without ever asking him to explain the details of his imaginary tax plan. And Candy Crowley, who I love, will be just as great as Martha was. Let’s face it: Chicks rule and guys drool.
So watch my nails tonight. They’ll be almost as sharp as the president’s elbows. Bring it, Barack!
