You think you are. Bet you $50 that somewhere, wherever he is, John McCain just knocked back his 7th or 8th scotch for the evening.

Agreed. Expectations are so low that no matter how badly she performs she'll probably exceed what's expected of her.

"Hey, can I call you Joe?"

No, Sarah, he's going to require you to say "Sir Joseph Longfellow Biden III"

I see what they mean. She talks at length without saying anything of substance.

Please. She's not meeting her boyfriend's dad. She's debating someone who's supposed to be her equal. She shouldn't have to defer to him, nor he to her. They can show respect to each other without coming across as a weak, starstruck teenager.

She's not impressive at all. I'm waiting for her to prove to me that she knows something. All I hear is her spitting out facts that she could have read on Wikipedia. The difference between her and Biden is that he clearly knows what he's talking about. He can look at things from a nuanced point of view with rational thought involved. That last comment about her not answering questions the way the moderator asks is not going to win her any points. Very disrespectful, very rude, and certainly not going to win any independent, unbiased voters.

No, but I know some. I know how wary they are of Sarah Palin, and I know that isn't going to score her any points in their favor. If Biden had said the same thing, I would've called him out on it.

I think Biden's doing amazingly well. Palin's choosing her own questions to answer...meh. I hope people realize it's because she didn't know the answer to the question asked.
