9:17 p.m. — Did anyone catch Palin say she wouldn’t answer the questions the way the moderator wanted? That is, she won’t answer the questions she doesn’t want to!
9:17 — Palin: paying taxes ISN’T PATRIOTIC?
9:24 — Governor Palin can’t seem to say much other than platitudes and slogans.
9:32 — Biden: If we don’t know the cause, we can’t fix global warming! [Palin said she wouldn’t argue the causes!]
9:40 — Palin can’t give an exit strategy for Iraq.
9:47 — OH GOD! She says NUCULAR! Not again!!
9:56 — Gwen Ifil is really terrible at asking questions.
10:07 — SHE WON’T ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS WITHOUT SPOUTING SLOGANS! IT’S UNBELIEVABLE!
10:09 — “Team of Mavericks” is an oxymoron!
10:14 — She agrees with Cheney on vice presidential power? Has she even read the constitution?
10:26 — SHE’S NEVER CHANGED HER MIND?
10:28 — Balancing your family differences = balancing differences in Congress? Huh?
10:30 — Lousy and rambling closing speech. “Mainstream media,” yada yada yada.
My estimation? Biden won. Palin didn’t answer more than half the questions she was asked, and simply mouthed slogans.
