Okay.... let's say that I have no knowledge of the issues they are talking about at all. So I don't care if each of them stated a LOT of BS.

In terms of presentation and persuasion, I would declare Palin the winner. Biden bored me to tears like my grandfather talking to me about the war in the 1940s.

You know what I kept thinking? Why in the HELL are the Dems running this man as the second? Sheesh, he should be at the top of their ticket and it's crazy that he's propping up an incompetent. Most of the things Biden ascribed to "the ticket" were actually HIS accomplishments and he had to throw in Obama's name now and then.

Palin was a totally appropriate second, sharing her own experiences but pointing to the experienced TOP of the ticket. She exemplified the mantra for change and responsibility while making it clear how she would assist McCain. The GOP ticket, in other words, is balanced and top-heavy, as it should be.

Did you watch the same debate I did? She did ok but far from a win.....what's with "there" after half of her sentences? She needs a refresher course on proper grammar....

She won, there is no question!

Polls back to even by Next Monday. I'll put money on it!
Source?

Because I'm sitting here watching the focus groups done on it and reading different control group reactions and those disagree with your statement of all the groups.

In fact on one focus group split equally Dem/Rep/Indie, 6 people finally decided (mostly indies) after this debate. Only one of those 6 decided for McCain.

I thought she did quite well, given her lack of experience.

Palin- 67%
She never got to a point. She stuck to her talking points, and TRIED to prove her expertise (LOL) in energy. For the most part, she was stuck in "and also" loops.

Her answer for everything, roughly paraphrased:

"Well, ya know, I'm a maverick, but, as well, McCain is a Maverick too, and also, bipartisanship, but we need, reaching across the isle, Alaska is big, and also I'm an expert on energy, but we need bipartisan, we need to reach across the isle, and also reaching across the isle forgetting partisan matters I want tax cuts but Obama doesn't, and also the surge was a brilliant success.

I wouldn't say she won. I would say she did better than I expected.

Ah, I see... Alaskans are responsible for melting glaciers up here, and for depleting the ozone hole? Are you aware the the former director of IARC (in Alaska, by the way) has already published scientific documents that indicate that there is no proof for humans-caused global warming? Of the data gathered by IARC's scientists, not a single page shows a percentage of global warming that can be blamed on humans.

Also, aren't you aware that the ozone hole has been closing for the past few years?

Haven't you read the scientific reports pointing to a possible global cooling published this week? Also, are we humans also responsible for the global warming Mars is going through? And finally:

1. which humans caused the last global warming earth went through?
2. Are you aware that evidence of forests that existed long ago are being found under the ice in Alaska?
