Biden v. Palin: Best debate moments


Many of the polls gauging reactions to last night's vice presidential debate, especially those surveying undecideds, show Joe Biden the clear winner (CBS' poll had undecideds siding with Biden by a margin of more than two to one). Two favorite moments from the debate: Biden debunking Palin's repetitive McCain's-a-maverick spiel, and Biden's emotional recollection of being a single dad and understanding what it's like to have a child that "you're not sure is gonna make it." (Here's what he was referring to.)

the VP debate was stunning. Palin did a decent job faking about 20% of the questions and didn't even bother answering the other 80%.

i couldn't help thinking of the end of the movie Billy Madison, when the debate moderator says to Adam Sandler, "Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
