VP Debate: Advantage, Palin

Biden looked like he had been medicated and hour or so before the debate. The MSM reaction was that Sarah Palin stood toe to toe with Hair Plugs. Up until the debate started, the “conventional (i.e. liberal) wisdom” was that Palin was going to implode and bring the Republican ticket down with her. Nothing could have been further from the truth.

KTTC showed reaction from local Republican and Democratic debate parties in town. Republicans were universally pleased with Palin. Liberals, not so with Biden. Olmsted County DFL chair Lynn Wilson looked bitter and downcast when interviewed. But then again, what's new.

What struck me during the debate as one of the main and perhaps the pettiest reason why liberals don't like Governor Sarah Palin is her beauty queen looks. I mean, really. How many female elected officials are physically attractive?

Go, Sarah!

Biden’s performance and liberties with “the facts” reminded me of a Mark Twain quote:

“Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.”

Biden is a stranger to both facts and the truth. Apparently his memory is faltering as well. One of my favorite Palin zingers was when she said that Biden dismissed Obama as inexperienced, naive and “not ready” to be president until he was tapped to be the Obamafraud’s running mate. Biden is a self-serving hypocrite.
