Well, mostly read online and kinda half-listened, half-watched half-heartedly. Anyway, this wasn't going to be a knockout of any kind. I agree with [livejournal.com profile] ozarque; Palin came prepared with speechlets that she recited upon request. Anytime she had a question that she didn't have a speechlet for, she changed the subject and gave her speechlet. With her training as a television person, she put that "gosh-darn-it" appearance to work and played it up to the cameras. She demonstrated that with some coaching and prep, plus stringent debate controls, she can present herself prettily.

That might work for the Alaskan Governor's seat, but it isn't good enough for the VP of the USA, particularly one who could well become the P of the USA.

Joe Biden did not come on too strong, or act all superior, so he kept things even. All in all, a boring debate, although I really wish both Obama and Biden had enough courage to support gay marriage. Still, that's more of a state's rights issue, but DOMA is a federal statute and should be repealed.

I can hardly wait to see Tina Fey's take on this. SNL has been taking full advantage of this election season.
