  •  Look when Palin gaffes and waffles on camera (2+ / 0-)

    Just look uncomfortable and slightly dismayed. Glance at the camera only ever so subtly.  Maybe ask for some clarification or specifics, but only once.  Don't badger her.  

    Take a cue from the way Katie Couric did it -- she was brilliant. Utterly brilliant.  

    No further calling attention to it by the candidate will be necessary, because WE'LL all notice, and she just won't be able to get away from her own lack of substance.

    It will need to be a slow burn.  

    •  She has a history as a very good debater (0+ / 0-)

      Don't count this chickie out. She's so far been a survivor. Unless all the exposure, deservedly bad press, and calls for withdrawal have shaken her up too badly, I think tonight's fairly scripted and orderly debate could create a P/McC bounce. Upthread (or maybe on another of this morning's threads?) I predicted she will contradict McC on the bailout as a way to blow fresh kisses at the conservative base that (along with leftie me) despises the current bailout plan, in an effort to keep them fired up despite McC's tanking numbers.
