The VP Debate

The VP Debate

Okay, Joe Biden won the debate. I’m sorry, you can spin it however you want, but he won the debate. Not only did he show his superior grasp of the political issues, but he showed a greater understanding of personal respect. Maybe he sighed a little too often, but that paled in comparison to Sarah Palin’s utter disregard for both the questions being asked as well as the tones of the conversation. She held her own, but that’s not what a Vice President is supposed to do. A Vice President should be knowledgeable, respectful, and quick. Biden displayed those skills and Palin did not. Palin was misleading with facts, stuck on her script to a fault, and was unwilling to show any sign of personal emotion that didn’t seem rehearsed.
