Well, I'm watching the debate right now.
I must say that I find find Sarh Palin's expressions like "You're darned right" and "You betcha!" as well as winking at the audience quite irritating.
That said, so far she's doing very well. She holds my attention better than Biden and she's churning out those talking points and sound bites.
Mind you, she's not answering the questions but I don't think that will be noticed by the ordinary person on the street. Palin has remarkable stage presence and that will go far in people's perception of her performance.
