Vice Presidential Debate Thread

Since the McCain thread is just so damn big, I figured I'd start a thread where you can post your views on the debate here.

Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

Okay. Is it me or is she dodging some questions? Cause I feel like when it's her chance to rebut, she basically goes, "Well I can't rebut, but here's something I can talk about..." and then goes on some tangent.

Not surprising, she's sticking to her script.

Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

I'd say that for the first time debating on a national stage that she's doing a great job. Granted, I had very low expectations. One thing to remember is that Biden ran for President and during that time had plenty of time to think about the issues concerning the presidency and how to best express them. Palin has only had, what, 6 weeks to align her views with McCain?

At least she's not pulling another Couric.. You can't get much worse than that. She studied well.

Hopefully she runs out of slogans and starts getting back on topic.

Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

There needs to be an ongoing tally on how many times she's said "maverick" and if she says NUCULEAR (not nuclear), one more time, I'm gonna go nuts.

Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

I think she thinks she's there to give a speech rather than answer questions. She's doing a great job keeping her feet out of her mouth.

Well you can never be wrong when you decide that you're not going to directly answer questions.

She did a great job proving she's not a complete airhead. Bad job of proving what kind of VP she'd be and backing up McCain.

Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

Whoa. Let's be fair here. Biden spouted some nice numbers but worked hard on answer avoidance himself. Each had their scripts/talking points and stuck to them question be damned.

Again, this "debate" changed nobody's mind.

And, for god's sake, could we please have a seminar for Republican candidates on how to pronounce "nuclear".

Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

Whatever, Joe. Palin is stupid. I know. I saw some YouTube clips that show it. I bet she doesn't know..um...things that...um...smart people know. I think her soul should be eternally damned for her not being fully up to speed on all issues.

And, in case you didn't realize this, McCain = Bush.

Re: Vice Presidential Debate Thread

I think she did a good job of avoiding making the big mistake. However, she spoke in such ridiculous generalities that it was almost to the point of, "I'm going to go to Washington and do a bunch of really good things." I felt like Biden did a much better job of articulating his points.
