Stunning performance by Palin in Vice Presidential debate at Saint Louis (Palin turns the tables on detractors)

Sarah Palin performed very strongly. She was articulate, vivacious,charismatic and knowledgeable.
This was a champagne performance. Liberal media eat your hearts out. She was an inspired Vice Presidential selection. Joe Biden was Joe Biden –strong on some details but factually incorrect on others. Biden kept going back instead of forward. This was a bad blunder.

Palin strongly targeted Obama’s poor record on high spending and tax increases. She was strong on energy independence stressing the need for more drilling to ensure less American dependence on hostile foreign regimes. She continuously stressed reform of Wall Street and was strong on Israel. She outlined John McCain’s proposals two years ago to regulate Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. She hit Obama strongly on tax breaks for oil companies. She also dealt with her formidable record in Alaska where she introduced a balanced budget and reduced taxes.
Joe Biden was articulate and endeavoured to tie McCain to Bush. He used the class warfare card and attacked McCain’s foreign policy platform. He misrepresented John McCain's record on taxes. His various mis-statements on McCains voting record have handed a powerful weapon to the McCain campaign. He was quite often factually incorrect. He endeavoured to paint McCain as unreasonable. However Palin resonated strongly with ordinary voters.

This is a triumph of epic proportions for Sarah Palin who has been savaged by the bloodhounds of the liberal media. Not alone was she assailed but her family was torn to shreds by the same media. This woman could lead America in any crisis.

...and yet dispite this stunning triumph, McCain has run away from Michigan...

Michigan usually votes Democrat

True, but it shows that the McCain camp is losing confidence. I am just waiting for the really negative campaigning from the republicans.

The ugly attacks on Palin have come from Democrats and their supporters in the liberal media

Palin was rigid and rehearsed. She delivered speaking points learnt off by heart without ever engaging with the question posed by the moderator thoughtfully.

By contrast, Joe Biden's responses were thought provoking and unscripted. All that Sarah Palin proved last week was that she could stand in front of a crowd for forty minutes and rattle off a prepared script. The cringe -inducing interviews with Katie Couric have deomonstrated her inability to depart from prepared scripts or think on her feat. Palin surpassed the exceedingly low expectations people had of her, but this does not qualify her to be Vice President.
