this/\ I did not like that at all, it was like one sentence of what her weakness was and then off in some other direction for the duration. I also didn't like when bidden was "choking up" talking about losing his wife and child. it seemed a little played out to me. I do agree with you on the accent sounds more Minnesota to me, definitely Midwestern though.

Palin killed her on the bridge to nowhere pun. I also like how she didn't answer a couple a question, and his rebuttal was, "You didn't answer the question!" *lol*

I was expecting her to simply not know the answers for anything, but she came off a little better than usual.

But...

She didn't have an interviewer to actually force her to answer the question, she could take any question any way that she wanted. She came off as less of an idiot, but still an idiot.

And Biden pulled a bunch of punches. All he had to do to seal her fate was say "Its not McClellan, its McKiernan. If you can't even get the name of the commander right, then why are you even talking about what he said?" etc.

I think that was a deliberate choice; Biden left that kind of nitpicking up to the pundits and analysts who would break the debate down afterwards. He just focused on answers. I dunno; I felt Biden was trying to demonstrate he had discipline. He looked pretty presidential himself.

I guess, I saw it in his eyes though, the second she said "McClellan" I could see the internal struggle to make her look like a complete idiot. She repeatedly got the name wrong, not because of a gaffe, but because she couldn't remember her foreign policy lessons during debate prep.

Im going to apply the Palin strategy to everything in my life from now on. When people ask me How are you doing? I will answer with My House Is Blue. The next bill that is due, I will simply write a note that says I like lamp and drop it in the envelope..This woman is brilliant..

Really what we saw was Biden stump for 45 minutes against McCain, and Palin tell us about Alaska. I thought Biden was brilliantly restrained and just absolutely tore it up. I don't think dems could have hoped for a better performance.

Palin..well she didnt fall down and she proved she can read. All in all id say thats a better performance than the GOP could have hoped for also.

I bet Obama is up 10 points on McCain in the next gallup poll.

You might be surprised how many people bought into the "simple person talk". I think over the past two weeks everyone has seen her as a complete dumbass, and thus, for many people she at least more plausible. I'll be pleasantly surprised if the polls shift towards Obama further, but I am not expecting much of any change.

I am actually(suprised by how many people buy that shit). I watched Fox and Friends this morning, because I get a kick out of people who have a total disconnect with reality. Ive always been fascinated with cult leaders. Jones, Manson, Koresh, etc. Ive never understood how they could just convince thousands of people to believe they are prophets of god. I think I understand now. You just get a couple people totally disconnected from truth and have them spew your venom nonstop until weak willed people believe it. Im totally moving to texas or new mexico and starting my own. Way better to have 100s people doing your work for you..

Well with McCain pulling out of Michigan Obama has pretty much 264 of 270 votes. Actually I was right about an Obama swing folling the debate. Not so much in the national polls but in all the battleground states.

About your videos.. We say the same things as these guys at least a day before they do, how do we get their jobs?

Consider "why would we want their jobs?"

A good indication of where this race is going, and why I don't listen to fox news (ignore the turkish talk radio douche)
