Sarah "cuda" Palin Wins VP Debate over Joe Biden!

Even democrat strategist Kirsten Powers and liberal pundit Mort Kondracki gave the debate to Sarah Palin. Kondracki said... "She connected with the average American while Joe Biden talked in Senate-speak".
Powers said... "Biden didn't commit any major gaffe's, but she (Palin) got the better of it."

A Frank Luntz focus group comprised of independents half of whom voted for John Kerry in 2004, also overwhelmingly said Palin won the debate. While a dozen or more said Palin changed their minds and they now support McCain, only one person in the group said he changed his mind in support of Obama.

Frank Luntz went on to say that polls in the next 48 hours are going to change reflecting just how well Palin did. Luntz is an expert on such matters.

Also in the next 48 hours we will see just how many times Joe Biden either lied or was just plain wrong.

The Huffington Post has this...
"Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican vice-presidential candidate, stunned observers by clearly winning her debate with Senator Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee."

Some liberals (democrat operatives) are still in denial however (of course) reciting democrat talking points while claiming Palin didn't win.

Transcript of debate

UPDATE: Shocking NEWS!
The Democrat controlled liberal left-wing media is desperately spinning the debate for Biden (Obama). Biden played fast and loose with the "facts" in last nights debate and (of course) isn't being held accountable for any of it.

JOE BIDEN’S 14 LIES IN DEBATE TONIGHT

1. TAX VOTE: Biden said McCain voted “the exact same way” as Obama to increase taxes on Americans earning just $42,000, but McCain DID NOT VOTE THAT WAY.

2. AHMEDINIJAD MEETING: Joe Biden lied when he said that Barack Obama never said that he would sit down unconditionally with Mahmoud Ahmedinijad of Iran. Barack Obama did say specifically, and Joe Biden attacked him for it.

3. OFFSHORE OIL DRILLING: Biden said, “Drill we must.” But Biden has opposed offshore drilling and even compared offshore drilling to “raping” the Outer Continental Shelf.”

4. TROOP FUNDING: Joe Biden lied when he indicated that John McCain and Barack Obama voted the same way against funding the troops in the field. John McCain opposed a bill that included a timeline, that the President of the United States had already said he would veto regardless of it’s passage.

5. OPPOSING CLEAN COAL: Biden says he’s always been for clean coal, but he just told a voter that he is against clean coal and any new coal plants in America and has a record of voting against clean coal and coal in the U.S. Senate.

6. ALERNATIVE ENERGY VOTES: According to FactCheck.org, Biden is exaggerating and overstating John McCain’s record voting for alternative energy when he says he voted against it 23 times.

7. HEALTH INSURANCE: Biden falsely said McCain will raise taxes on people's health insurance coverage -- they get a tax credit to offset any tax hike. Independent fact checkers have confirmed this attack is false. McCain's only reference to "de-regulation of the heath industry" is his support to allow us to buy insurance across state lines- period.

8. OIL TAXES: Biden falsely said Palin supported a windfall profits tax in Alaska -- she reformed the state tax and revenue system, it's not a windfall profits tax.

9. AFGHANISTAN / GEN. MCKIERNAN COMMENTS: Biden said that top military commander in Iraq said the principles of the surge could not be applied to Afghanistan, but the commander of NATO's International Security Assistance Force Gen. David D. McKiernan said that there were principles of the surge strategy, including working with tribes, that could be applied in Afghanistan.

10. REGULATION: Biden falsely said McCain weakened regulation -- he actually called for more regulation on Fannie and Freddie.

11. IRAQ: When Joe Biden lied when he said that John McCain was “dead wrong on Iraq”, because Joe Biden shared the same vote to authorize the war and differed on the surge strategy where they John McCain has been proven right.

12. TAX INCREASES: Biden said Americans earning less than $250,000 wouldn’t see higher taxes, but the Obama-Biden tax plan would raise taxes on individuals making $200,000 or more.

13. BAILOUT: Biden said the economic rescue legislation matches the four principles that Obama laid out, but in reality it doesn’t meet two of the four principles that Obama outlined on Sept. 19, which were that it include an emergency economic stimulus package, and that it be part of “part of a globally coordinated effort with our partners in the G-20.”

14. REAGAN TAX RATES: Biden is wrong in saying that under Obama, Americans won't pay any more in taxes then they did under Reagan (28%). In fact, taxes under Obama will be at 39.5% similar to the Clinton years.

Please, America, tell me it isn't true? Is that all it takes to be fit for the vice presidency? Ignore the questions you are asked? Deploy the carbon-copy speeches you were trained to say, over and over again? Give answers to questions you weren't asked?
The only way Sarah Palin did succeed in the debate was by being able to utter complete sentences most of the time. By sticking to the script like a fly to a glue trap. As if someone had winded her up and sent her to the debate like a toy soldier.

I was going to vote for John McCain, even tough I favoured Mike Huckabee. But Sarah Palin changed that; she's an embarrassment.

I'm not so sure I want that to be true for a possible POTUS...

Marc... I'm gonna throw the bullshit flag on you.

Palin and Huckabee agree on 99.9% of the issues and she's a heck of a lot prettier, so I say you are a liar and never were going to vote for McCain... much less Mike Huckabee.

btw- you sorta tipped your hand in the first paragraph. If you were actually supporting McCain, you would have been at least mildy supporting his vp pick or at the very minimum hoping she did well.
Instead you attack her on no grounds and claim you're a McCain backer.
nice.
