    How is she middle class? She makes a quarter mil per year in a state that's got a median income quite below that.

    She and her husband are worth more than a million together.

    Did she just say that a tax credit is budget neutral? How the hell is a tax credit budget neutral.

    I think she's laying it on easy for the beginning, so she can slam her at the end so the pubs can't say she was biased.

    Hey, Sarah - when you make $1M, you don't get to say you're "middle class".

    And on the tax credit, fuck you very much, Sarah.

    She's doing better than I expected, but her rhetoric is all about the base.

    It's tough to watch, though.

    Not if she had a backbone.

    All her questions are. "Palin what do you think about X? In specific I'll list a few things about X that you can say back to me."

    SARAH PALIN used SCARE TACTICS

    It's not very effective...

    JOE BIDEN used FACTS

    It's super-effective!!

    Hm. Ok, so she's actually answering questions.

    I'm shocked.

    I mean, I don't agree with her answers but she's actually giving them.

    Kudos, Mrs. Palin.

    ...

    Aaaaand now I'm depressed I just gave someone on a presidential ticket kudos for the ability to coherently answer a question. :(

    Because it's not a tax increase, duh. Deficit spending doesn't count, everyone knows that.

    Their strategy is going to work. She will escape this debate without a major gaffe, and as a result look like a super hero for exceeding expectations. I told you motherfuckers.

    God damn it. God damn it.
