Crickie, can't anyone in the Republican Party pronounce nuclear?


And please explain this Maverick thing, I thought this was an election.

She did make three odd gaffs that I caught:

She bluntly said that she would not answer any question she didn't want to
She said that she wanted to expand the authority of the VP
She said she wants a U.S. embassy in Jerusalem

Oh yeah, who is Gen. McClellan?

I agree, that was just silly--she just lost interest in addressing the questions and went into robo-memism

On several occasions she was answering questions that were one behind. Like watching a Charlie Chan movie.

And the absolute refusal to answer some questions was interesting.

Palin by a mile! No doubt about it!!

I kept waiting for her to invite ol' Joe out for a beer. There seemed to be a genuine warmth between the two of them. I just looked over at Drudge for the official winner and this is exactly what I thought too:

BIDEN
22% 10,773

PALIN
76% 36,883

NEITHER
2% 981

Total Votes: 48,637

Don't believe everything you think

Yes, I agree, but I don't think the outcome of that viewing will be as you hope.
