If you want to discuss last night’s VP debate among Shapelings, here’s your thread. (Not exactly Friday Fluff, huh?) I wrote about it for Broadsheet this morning and have lots more to say, but I have to go turn in another post over there.
The one thing I’ll add now is that I’m stunned by how many pundits seem to think Palin came off as confident and together (apparently because, as Joan Walsh said, “her subjects and verbs corresponded”). She wasn’t full-on deer-in-headlights, but her discomfort was glaring to me — especially relative to Biden looking like he fucking owned the place. (Turns out 30 years of political experience might actually come in handy.) My friend Jeanie even pointed out that a few times, you could literally see her sweat.
What did y’all think, if you watched?
