    Your VP pick wasn't as bad as we thought she would be last night. We found out that she can, indeed memorize Republican talking points without the use of a teleprompter or speech cards in front of her and she can come off looking somewhat intelligent. Though, personally, she's got to drop that folksky, hockey mom schtick - it's not what Americans want to hear in a time like this.

    The problem is that 1 year ago she wouldn't have known any of the questions to any of the answers she was asked. Whereas McCain, Biden and Obama not only would have, but were competing fiercly to tell the American people about their knowledge and experience. It is not enough that Sarah Palin looked competent last night. When was the last time we had low standards for someone who could most likely be in charge of our national security?

    In Palin's own words: "How long have I been at this? 5 weeks?" Indeed.

    As far as who won the debate, Biden dismantled her piece by piece by piece. Biden did in fact hold back last night - he did exactly what he needed to do to win the debate. This proves, once and for all, not only how competent Biden is, but how much his experience is relevant to his understanding of the issues at hand. Palin can talk all she wants, but she doesn't understand what's really going on out there.

    Actually, Palin spoke very well, she maintained her composure even though Biden clearly was the firmer speaker. However, when it comes to facts, it seems Palin spoke more of them, Biden lied, a lot. He lied about McCain a number of times to reflect good points made by Palin.

    I only wish Palin and McCain would speak more specifics, and then maybe they could get somewhere. I'm still not voting for them at this point, because McCain pissed me off by supporting the bailout and all its pork.

    LMAO!!! Thanks for pointing out that she is indeed a "quick study".

    If you're going to create threads simply for the purpose of bashing, try being more creative. :lol:

    FactCheck.org: FactChecking Biden-Palin Debate

    It's all right there. Sure, Palin mistated some numbers. But she never outright accused the other party of doing something they didn't. A number of times Biden fired back with, "So did McCain!" Every time he did, he lied.

    I believe she lied also. The 94 votes to raise taxes. When he did correct her when she was wrong, she didn't have the facts to prove him wrong and just agreed and went on. Wave the white flag. Pure bullshit. When she said something that was wrong, he corrected her. He had the data in his head not on his talking point papers.

    She doesn't have the indepth knowledge to be VP.

    I would'nt want a CEO who didn't know the company either even if she was a nice cutsy speaker.

    Are you kidding? That's all they know how to do. Bash! Remember the last eight years? Well, they are just transferring that hatred from Bush to McCain/Palin. No rhyme or reason, Just hate!

    She was great. Everyone knows it. Sure we'll argue about it, but that won't change the fact.

    Biden was great too, he was a class act. But he was expected to be good.

    I like the way she tastefully said "filtered interviews" I guess Katie Couric can go back to being a failure at CBS. She's been good at that.
