Debating Sarah Palin
We all wonder how the Palin/Biden debate will go tomorrow. We all have our perceptions of her recent interviews. Many think the campaign managers are changing her too much, scripting her answers, and filling her head with millions of bytes to memorize. I think that has happened. I think she pretty much held her own, BUT, she could have, and should have, done better. There is a sense that now the campaign is trying to undue the damage they did. Good! She was a GREAT debater before she was tapped to run for V.P. and she is still a great debater now, if her hands get untied. For what I consider to be an impartial source, please follow this link to hear right from a guy who knows.
Andrew Halcro debated Sarah Palin at least a dozen times. If anyone on this earth knows her debate style, it is him. His article in the Christian Science Monitor reveals a Sarah Palin that has the ability to mop the floor with the seat of Biden's pants with him still in them, if you get my drift. If she has been untethered by her campaign handlers, I think she will easily beat Biden, even if Gwenn Ifill is lopsided and unfair as the moderator. I'm not so sure that will be the case. Her book may even sell BETTER if NOBAMA loses! The one thing I know for certain is that I will be watching this debate. If she accomplishes what I think she is capable of tomorrow, we could see a remarkable bounce in the polls, one which NOBAMA will not recoup from.
That last sentence reminds me, keep an eye on that AOL poll I posted the other day. It still shows McCain ahead of NOBAMA nationally at 60% versus 40%. This is based on over 400,000 votes. Here is the link again so you won't have to go looking for it. For those of you interested, this poll will include third party candidates starting Thursday. I hope this poll is closer to the truth than other polls which only survey 1000-2000 people. Of course, it can't be used by poor demoncraps with no computer, so many of NOBAMAS core base don't even know it exists. That might not be correct, they probably all bought one with loans the government made the banks give them(sarcasm).
