Well, the VP Debate was not quite the train wreck I was hoping for. I was impressed with Biden, especially since this was the first time I'd really seen him talk at length about the issues. Palin obviously studied hard, stuck to her talking points, and didn't say anything too outlandish, so the Republicans are seeing this as a success. The lesson here is that we should all lower our expectations considerably, so that we might never be disappointed again. Or something like that.
Also: I newly hate the word "maverick"; "folksy" also makes me want to punch somebody; did you catch when Palin referred to Joe as Senator Obiden? That was pretty funny; I was really disappointed in the way the candidates both talked about gay marriage and wonder when - if ever - politicians will start pandering to the secular vote; I really wish they had a question about abortion and the epic fail that is abstinence only education, so that Palin could talk about how her beliefs screw over women and children (including her own daughter) and how she opposes abortion even in the case of rape or incest (which even most pro-lifers are uncomfortable with); Biden tearing up about this family's history broke my heart; I am pretty sure Palin is a puppet. Literally; I like this ad that the Obama campaign has already put together. Way to stay on top of things!
