Default Palin addressing the moderator

Moderator: Governor Palin, Was the house defeat of the bailout worst of DC or best?

Palin: I come from a small town in Alassssska. I am a hockey Mom. Do you know the difference between a hockey Mom and a Pitbull? Lipstick!!

I hope you have proof of that..............those are serious accusations---------and, I do not care for Palin myself.

In all fairness; if she were using a Blackberry............it is plausible that Biden did as well.

I will get into it more later but she did a fabulous job.

If you are all honest you will see that she can perform and did a fantastic job!

Way to go Sarah!

You won this debate.
Initial polls show exactly the opposite.

Gov. Palin seems like a nice person. But she is really in-over-her-head. She was completely outmatched and it showed. She avoided really answering any questions and repeated her claims over and over again, even after Biden answered these accusations head-on. She also showed a real lack of understanding in regards to the powers of the Vice President in relation to the Senate. Personally, I think she has such a tenuous grasp on the Constitution and federal law, she didn't really know what she was talking about anyway.

The hokey tag lines will only get you so far...

Plausible, yes...probable, no.

Note: the Republican strategists who validated Mccains selection of Palin as VP, knew that people would initially see his choice as an effort to get the Hillary defects, and calculated that America would have to confront it's own inherently sexist ideals and thus shift the argument away from her being selected simply for being a woman, to the merits of the choice, the 'newness' appeal, etc. etc. ...let's face it...she's no Gerraro!

You are describing your dream? seems she couldnt answer any question but darn sure wanted to talk about Alaska. the state that long since had an oil boom that she had nothing to do with. When you have a revenue of $8.6B it is pretty hard not to come out on top.
