Sarah Palin has a bone to pick with the Commission on Presidential Debates.
In a Facebook post Wednesday night, the former Republican vice presidential nominee pointed out that her debate with Vice President Joe Biden in 2008 was the only one in recent years where both candidates stood at lecterns rather than facing off across a table, and Palin in heels to boot.
“How is it that the dudes lucked out and got chairs over the last 20 years of VP debates minus one?” Palin wrote. “Want a real test – try standing in 👠👠 for 90 mins #heelsonglovesoff”
The former Alaska governor apparently forgot that the reason she was standing during her debate was publicly reported at the time and was a result of negotiations between the Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin campaigns. In 2008, Republicans wanted to limit the amount of time Palin was able to speak on any particular topic, while Democrats wanted the candidates to speak at lecterns instead of sitting down, according to The Washington Post. The decision to have Biden and Palin both stand was the result of that compromise.
