My take on the Vice-Presidential debate
Whether she whupped his ass or not, depends upon whether you read Democratic Underground or Free Republic.
I noticed a five-minute period in the middle of the debate where Palin had Biden either so upset or so flustered that he couldn't complete a sentence.
I believe that the reason she didn't bring up the things that could have eviscerated Obama/Biden with: Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac/Dodd/Frank/Waters; Obama/Wright/Ayres/Wright/Davis- was that her coaches instructed her not to do so, as that would have given an entirely new and possibly interpretable as "bitchy" to her persona, which they were in dire need of resurrecting.
I regret saying that because it sounds sexist, but that's what I think.
