I'm 15 minutes behind. Please for the love of God tell me that Sarah Palin didn't actually say that.

Good lineage you have!

I think Palin is starting to run out of talking points though.

She seems to struggle to find her footing for a few seconds then goes on a rant for 70 seconds. It seems to be effective.

It'll all depend on how the media shows her. They can show her as stumbling or show her knocking off points.

For the last 20 minutes or so, it looks like the CNN graph has turned in favor of Biden.

Anyone else cringe at the "team of Mavericks" comment?

Sarah Palin has watched a lot of back episodes of the A-Team as preparation.

She thinks McSame is that white haired guy that used to smoke the cigars.

She didn't say John McCain won Vietnam. She did say the other 2 statements, though.

Palin is doing exactly what I thought she would: sound competent, but lack substance. She's dodged a lot of questions, and Biden has pointed it out.

Biden has surprised me in how knowledgeable he seems to be. His performance is more surprising than hers, in my opinion.

She didn't say the last line, but she did indeed say, "John McCain knows how to win a war--he's been there <wink>."

What on earth does that mean? Being in a war means that you know how to win a war?

Does this line "He has been the maverick" really play all that well with independents? I'm really curious. She is far more effective when she talks about the common American and their problems, I will admit, but to me, that maverick phrase comes across as not very resonant.
