Sarah Palin rocked the debate!

She did what she had to do.  Biden never saw her coming. 

Even the Democrat attack dogs can't point to any substantive mistakes.  They say she "avoided" questions, but so did Biden.  They say she couldn't clarify how McCain's administration would be different than Bush's, but she criticized a number of Bush policies.

But Joe did something she didn't and couldn't: He admitted his running mate is unworthy to be President by saying that he would be spending his days as VP in the Oval Office "...helping Obama make decisions...."

So Obama needs his hand held?  Then why is he running?

Yep. Isn't it something how they like to point out how she's not qualified for the VP office? But the MSM will not go there with Barry's qualifications? You know, the one on the TOP of their ticket?!!

I ran into the living room where Arthur was watching and asked "Did Biden just say that Obama wanted him to be present for all decisions?!"

That was WILD, but nobody in the MSM is talking about it today!

I thought she rawked! Only on the scene for 5 weeks and she ate his lunch... I love it!

I don't see how she won the debate. I think she turned her downward spiral around. I think she reassured her base. But I don't think she swayed any independents. Not answering the question may make people who hate the MSM happy, but when someone wants to know the answer, they just get annoyed. And I'm sorry -- wants to enlarge the role of the VP? What happened to the conservative thought of strict construction? Didn't we have enough polarization because of Cheney's redefining the role? If I were a Republican, I would be freaking out.

I'm not sure if Joe Biden did anything for independents either but he did talk to the left very well. It was certainly nice to hear someone articulate my beliefs.

I really don't see how one side rocked the other. I'm amazed that the polls are saying so overwhelmingly that Biden won the debate. Palin stopped the "bleeding" for sure and that is so huge that I think it might offset Biden's better grasp of the issues.

I think she won simply because she didn't lose. Both of them made minor mistakes, and neither of them did anything to change people's minds.

So that's a win for Sarah. Where win = not lose.

I agree, Palin rocked, but I was a little disappointed that she didn't kick Biden's @ss a little bit,,,come on, that's what we were all waiting to see!
