You betcha!

so she didn't entirely crash and burn... that still doesn't mean that she did well. the winking, the 'you betchas', the hybrid canadian/minnesotan/wisconsinian accent... enough to make you want to vomit all over your shag carpet.

my heart almost bursted when biden said, "past is prologue." oh snap! i also liked how he refused to call her 'sarah'. he was really good. i was entranced by his straight white teeth. also, i heard on, of all places, howard stern that joe biden's son's name is bo. bo biden. as in, biden biden, bo biden, fee fie fo fiden...

My mother just informed me that she though Palin did a great job last night.... I'm thinking of changing my last name.... How about Christy...... Sloan?

Gawker has a clip of Palin calling Biden "O'Biden" and his delayed reaction (big grin with his straight white teeth) during the debate:

That quote is from Shakespeare's The Tempest and is a line of Antonio who is evil and arrogant and greedy for power... I'm sorry I don't have the context of the Biden comment, but I find both he and Obama to be greedy for power (along with nearly every Washintonian). This election cycle is the least hopeful I have ever witnessed.

BookTav- Thanks for id-ing the quote. I knew it wasn't his... that's funny that it is from an arrogant, greedy character. ALL politicians are power hungry egomaniacs. Who else in their right mind would go into that line of work?!

The context was that Palin repeatedly asked Biden why he kept looking backwards (i.e. what happened during the Bush Admin).

I'm not an Obama/Biden fan, but they are wayyyyyyyyy better than McPalin. Way. Way.
