I wasn't being sarcastic, if that's what it seemed like...

I definitely do, too----didn't mean it to come off as sarcastic against Joe. I think he meant it fully.

On a related note, I respect, love and am impressed by the fact that he hasn't played that card much at all during this election in order to counter her "mom of a special needs child" thing.

I agree. For the love of God, he was talking about the death of his wife and daughter along with the serious injuries of his young sons..

Yeah, I think we're all in agreement about Biden's sincerity.

Good closing for Biden.

Sarah Palin likes to answer the tough questions?

Yeah, just to clarify--- I said it was Hillary-like in that it could potentially be an instance where choking up wins a lot of respect & affection from voters....not that he did it seemingly on purpose, as I perceive Hillary to have done.




Moving on...

See, we "fundamentally disagree" on this. It's pretty lame to say that she "won" simply because she beat the expectation that she'd sound like a moron.

Ramble irrelevantly without substance!


Seriously, I can't see how anybody could even call that debate close. Biden had substance and knowledge. Palin was, most of the time, clueless. That was nothing short of a mismatch.
