Palin doesn't throw out canned answers??? Really??! We just saw 90 minutes of canned answers (tho' often answers NOT to the questions asked...)
She does 'em well, but sadly such a prescribed debate format did nothing to demonstrate an ability to think on his/her feet or intellectual curiosity. These seem two qualities we want in a team running a world power. She showed a lack of both in the interviews, but wasn't challenged at all in this debate.
To digress for a moment....why is "folksy" considered "real"? Why is "folksy" more "real" than, well, "not folksy"??
Okay, I'm back - why wasn't Palin required to actually answer the questions asked? And a REALLY scary point that she should've been called on immediately -- do we really want Palin to EXPAND the powers of the VP beyond the Constitution-breaking bounds Cheney has already demolished??
My respect for Biden increased, my lack of respect for her likewise increased. Sadly I think because she didn't overtly flub her lines and was allowed to recite dogma without challenge, she will handed a "victory."
