Sarah Palin: Holy smokes! This could turn into an all-nighter!
I thought it was a surprisingly good debate - no real issues solved, but it showed the difference between preparation coupled with cunning (Palin) and real experience and insight (Biden). Palin came off well, which is sort of what I expected; she’s not stupid, merely aggressively ignorant. If anyone was persuaded by Palin’s winking little show, they weren’t likely to go for Obama in any case. But Biden really held it together – he was sharp.
