Veep Debate Liveblogging 12

8:23 PM CDT: Yglesias points out that Gov. Palin has no ability to even pretend to have the ability to discuss foreign policy.

I have some disagreements on national security issues with Biden, but he’s clearly able to express totally genuine opinions on issues he’s spent time thinking about. Palin, by contrast, is mechanistically reciting talking points. She’s clearly never given a minute’s thought to Darfur.

Well, that’s why she’s extra-specially qualified to be vice president – most Americans have also never given a minute’s thought to Darfur, and what we need in the White House is more regular old stupid Americans!
