You’re kidding, right? I know I’ll probably get flamed, but I think Biden cleaned her clock. There were a few problems, but mostly her answers were too pat, generic and rambling. Plus she said a few things (like the Constitutional role of the VP) that will probably come back to haunt her. As for Biden, sounded a lot more focused, authoritative and articulate. Yeah, he lied his ass off, but don’t expect the MSM to call him on it.

McCain needs to win.
Why?

She’s mahvelous!

Palin was an ace. She butchered Biden.

Did you notice the angry face Biden wore all night? That reminded me of Kenndy vs Nixon.

I thought Sarah did a great job but it was very obvious that she’s still being forced to wear her Jane McCain mask, and that’s not good. Biden stood there and delivered a host of bald-faced lies, but surely the grandest was when he claimed that Obama saw the subprime problems coming, warned everyone, and McCain thought all was rosy. It was obvious that Sarah had been instructed to be “bipartisan” on the crisis, which absolutely squandered a chance to tell the truth about Obama being up to his eyeballs in the financial mess. Not only did she not do that, but she let Biden’s absurd claims stand unchallenged.

Don’t get me wrong: I do NOT think for one minute that this was Palin’s fault. I think she’s following the McCain game plan, and I fear more by the day that it is a losing plan.

Did you notice that Biden was against the ropes most of the debate? Constantantly going back to try and defend Obama. I thought he was going to have to sit down because she was going too fast for him. Her confidence continued to build throughout the debate. He faded and he came across as unfunny.

GREAT JOB, SARAH!!!!!!

It appears that the debate was obviously slanted in favor of Biden. He answered without hesitation and Ifill (who we know is liberally-biased) seemed to take more kindly to Biden than Palin.

Sarah was great. Gwen did a good job, too. I felt sorry for Joe because I could see pain on his face when Sarah delivered well. He’s a sensitive guy, which actually made it easier on Sarah.

I love Sarah, her politics and her down to earth persona. I finally got excited when McLame finally did something right by selecting her. However, I had to turn the TV off after the first half hour tonight because I thought she utterly sucked. She missed so many opportunities and she made Biden’s point for him too many times. If it wasn’t over before it is now.

Yeah, whatever. I've been a FReeper for a LOOONG time. You can look at my posts and I'm as conservative as they get. And part of my conservatism is giving my honest opinion. I'll still be voting for McCain regardless.

Actually, you missed the best parts.

I think you must have fallen for that "1, 2, 3" points thing.

That sort of stuff doesn't mean a thing.

What matters is "Obama is dangerous".

She did very well. I just wish McCain would have allowed her to blame the Dems for the financial mess (since they caused it), ut McCain won’t blame Dems for anything, only Repupublicans.

If McCain gets a bump in the polls from this, he better turn Sarah loose to be Sarah, if he wants to win this.

Mrs. Buzzard, who is totally nonpolitical, watched this debate and said "Are you watching this? She is kicking his ass!"

So take your negativism, whatever stupid personal problem it is about, and stow it.

I don’t think so Russ. Show me one. You won’t because you can’t. I thought her speech at the convention was great, but not so much since. However, I’ve not flamed her at all.

I am watching a focus group now and they all think she won. So maybe I’m out of the mainstream here, but I call ‘em as I see ‘em.

Agreed. I was hoping for more of the pit bull. I guess we got the lipstick.

However, this is a conservative talking. I think that the general thinking on Main Street is that the greed and corruption on Wall Street is real and is what caused the economic disaster. Trying to get folks educated on CRA, ACORN, etc. in a 90 second rebuttal is pretty tough.

I know that she could not counter McCain on certain issues, but two things I would have LOVED to hear...

On Global Warming - There are certainly many scientists who would disagree that man is responsible for climate change. You know, the climate has been changing for thousands of years and there are other factors like water vapor, changes in the earth core and then there’s that great big yellow ball in the sky that probably has a thing or two to do with climate change. etc etc

On the Bailout - Man I wish John had voted against that nonsense.
We’ve got this Armeggedon Avoidance Act and Congress has added $150 MILLION in pork in this 451 page monstrosity. We are going to Washington to END this horrible waste of taxpayer money and root out the people in Congress and policies that caused this mess in the first place! etc etc

Otherwise, I thought her performance was awesome. And Biden, well, he has an interesting idea of truth and a faulty memory.

OMG - A commentator on PBS just said “as a neutral observer Biden won this debate.” Neutral? PBS? Yea, right.

WOW.

Frank Lutz the pollster, who puts a bunch of independents in a room with rotating dials, and monitors their reactions during debates and such.

Said Sarah absolutely, completely wowed the entire group.

It was amazing. When asked who thought she won — the entire room raised their hands.

Go Sarah Go!

Just wow. No wonder Alaskans love her.

She's demonstrated that she learns quickly. I missed out on the first few minutes, but what she said was less substantial than Biden's attacks, and Biden did a good job, considering what a total creep he is. It's good that Palin was likable and loyal to McCain, but she needed to show that she could eat Biden's lunch and go on the attack. She didn't do that. It's very possible that she's adhering to McCain's non-strategy of playing nice to Obama/Biden's crass, but it isn't working and had little hope of working. Palin should have been baiting Biden and calling him out on what he was saying. "Bipartisanship" and "maverick" uttered repeatedly didn't blunt Biden's attacks, which were constant even if many of them were baseless. Republicans need to get used to the concept that Democrats win by lying their heads off and betting that the opposition won't take them on.

I liked Palin's closing remarks a lot and wished she had gone a little further. Helping to jumpstart her political career as a national figure may be McCain's legacy. She'll be a vital player in the GOP farm team come January. But depending on any VP candidate to turn around your campaign is a lousy strategy.
