  •  I would have loved follow-ups, too, but . . . (12+ / 0-)

    The good thing about the format of the debate - letting Palin not answer if she chose not to, as she flat said she would do early in the debate when she said she would not answer as the moderator or Biden thought she should! - was that it leaves the Repubs absolutely, positively nothing to spin to excuse Palin.  The big, bad, sexist Biden didn't go after her.  The big, bad, liberal, black, biased media didn't go after her.  (Despite all the McCain spin before the debate about how biased Ifill was.)  The Repubs cannot blame anyone for Palin's evasions, ignorance, misstatements of McCain's position, lies about Obama's positions - or any of her many other problems in the debate.  Palin got to be Palin.  And it appears that most voters who watched were not convinced that she is ready to be vice president.
