    Anyone watching? Opinions? I think Palin is doing pretty well, Biden is very good.

    She memorized her talking points well but what I can't stand is this fake folksy crap. "You're darn right" "Joe Six Pack" "Maverick" "Hockey Mom" Yuck. Are people really dumb enough to fall for that crap?

    All she's doing is reading talking points, even if they're totally irrelevant to the questions.

    Palin is doing much better than she did in her tv interviews so far. But Biden has a very fact filled answer for everything she brings up

    The first thing i noticed was the size of Palins flag pin. I don't think i've ever seen one bigger.

    She's not answering questions and trying to be folksy, but yes I agree she's doing well.

    Palin is regurgitating information well, Biden is actually answering the questions.

    Biden just nailed her on climate change "if you don't know what caused it how can you stop it"

    Actually, no he is not. Might as well not even have a moderator. This debate is a joke.

    WTF is Biden talking about? Leave it up to the faiths to decide? This is why I can never vote for these pansy ass democrats.

    Well okay, but at least he's on point. She gets asked about bankructy and goes off on her speech about energy policy.

    They're both doing well, it's pretty even I think. They're both hitting talking points and avoiding, or "steering" if you like, questions and answers to fit those points. I'd say they're drawing close to even.

    I agree about her down-home slang though, it's bugging. If I hear "dern" or "heck" one more time, I'm swtiching to my DVR'd episodes of Fringe. Now THAT'S a show.
