I won't be posting detailed thoughts on the Veep debate because the NY Times editorial (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/03/opinion/03fri1.html?em) sums up exactly how I feel. The CNN/major news outlet story was that Palin exceeded expectations but Biden won. Well, considering the expectation was that Palin couldn't speak in full sentences I'm not sure how much Republicans should really be patting themselves on the back. The editorial points out that she offered zero substance, but plenty of cliches and attacks. In fact, my next post, coming later today, will be about how conservative rhetoric has degenerated into name-calling -- there's no argument left more them to make (at least economically and in terms of foreign policy) so it's become one giant version of calling Democrats "poopy-pants."
But more on that later. What did you think of the debate?
