The vice presidential debates are always far more entertaining than the presidential pretend battles. Remember when Bentsen kicked Quayle's ass. Now days, he'd be a good VP to ask, "What does a vice president do?"
But Biden/Palin was a jewel. Oy, Biden is getting old, and Palin looked hot. But I'm not so sure if hot and folksy really go together.
Really: It's crazy that we focus on how she performs, wondering whether she's going to fuck up. This debate was entertaining, because it wasn't about the issues; instead, it was carnival freak show--the winking to the camera, the shucks, and "Say It Ain't So Joe," c'mon.
Is the base really that stupid?
