Like I said. Heavy on the bluster, but short on substance.

I think it's obvious Biden won.

That's really all that need be said.

The commentator here on SBS in Australia was actually calling the debate as close; I honestly expected an Australian network to quite happily get stuck into Palin's incompetence and ignorance. By any standard of debating, Biden utterly steamrollered her with actual knowledge and argumentation. Palin should just go home; even when she isn't humiliating herself with hilarious gaffes, she is quite clearly out of her depth and has absolutely no ability to work at such a high level of politics. That debate confirmed it.

Whoever plays Gwen: "Excuse me, Gov. Palin. Do you have something in your eye?"

I heard that they've asked Queen Latifah to pop by to play Gwen. Cannot confirm, just rumors on teh intrawebs.

Hey, when I speak to the American people, I wink excessively. And when questions are asked to me, I usually ignore it, and answer my own questions... it's how mavericks roll, man. You betcha that's how I roll.

Who wants to bet that Palin does not do a single major media interview, nor a press conference, from now on through Election Day?

Who else was sick of the An American Carol ads throughout? I don't mind that it's from a conservative standpoint, but it just looks fucking stupid. Airplane was stupid, but it was dumb humor done intelligently... doesn't look the case here.

Her favourability thingie on CNN went down every time she started grinning at the camera and winking. It's like she's tone deaf.

Watch her after Biden teared up about his wife and kids. She grins and goes into her talking point. Totally tone deaf.

I don't mind the folksiness. What I hate is that she's so uninformed and so smug at the same time.
