Veep debate wrap-up


I think I’m going to leave it to the rest of the punditeria and the blogosphere to point out the various slip-ups of the VP candidates. Actually, Karl Rove on Fox News gave a running list of misstatements by both candidates that was pretty inclusive. I think both candidates did what they set out to do, but I give the debate to Governor Palin.

It didn’t start out that way, however. In fact, during the first few minutes, I looked over at Mrs. Nuke and told her that Sarah wasn’t up to the task. But, as the debate went on, she got stronger, and performed at a level that I think will rekindle the hopes of Republicans that have suffered a bit over the past two weeks.

A key point of the evening for Governor Palin came when she defined “tolerance.”

In defending traditional marriage, Sarah was unapologetically supportive of the traditional definition of marriage as between one man and one woman. But, she took it one step farther. Rather than allowing herself to be painted as a homophobe (a great sport for liberals BTW), she expressed a “live and let live” philosophy without embracing the liberal posture of moral equivalence. It was a fine distinction, and one that a lot of social conservatives will appreciate.

It was a confident and inspiring performance.

  1. Yeah, after the first few lies, I quit even listening to Biden. Seems that he has a very distant relationship with the truth.

  2. Breaking News: Biden Cancels Weekend Events, Cites Illness in Family

    PER BRUNS:

    -for urgent – Biden has cxld campaign events tonight and tomorrw in va, citing an illness in jill’s family. Jill’s elderly mother has been very sick…trying to confirm that’s the illness they’re talking about.

    From david wade:

    Please see my statement below. For all those who planned on traveling today and tomorrow, we are canceling events.

    “The campaign has cancelled Sen. Biden’s schedule today and tomorrow because of a serious illness in Jill Biden’s family. Hospice has advised the Bidens to remain close by, and we appreciate everyone’s respect for the family’s privacy.”

    — David Wade, Biden spokesperson

    Is this the excuse for Hillary to step in they have been talking about? The timing is exactly, to the day, they said it would happen. (I don’t remember exactly who “they” are though)
