Veep Debate Wrapup

8:30 PM CDT: And now, Gov. Palin is bringing her family onstage: Tiffany, Heather, Cody, Dylan, Dermot, Jordan, Taylor, Brittany, Wesley, Rumor, Scout, Cassidy, Zoe, Chloe, Max, Hunter, Kendall, Caitlin, Noah, Sascha, Morgan, Kyra, Kevin, Ian, Lauren, Q-bert and Phil.

Wrapping up – really, the goal of a VP debate is, as Brian Williams is pointing out, primarily to do no harm.  And they both did a fine job of that.  Palin didn’t really make much in the way of debating points, beyond stating and repeating talking points, but she didn’t put her foot in her mouth, and spoke in mostly complete, coherent sentences.  Biden refrained from getting too longwinded, and did a fine job answering to any outright lies that she talking pointed over.  That was really all he had to do.

So, mostly, a draw.  I doubt this will make any difference in the polling at the moment, but at least, for the Repubs, Palin managed not to completely embarrass herself on national television.
