Who says the media is in Obamas pocket

Tonight look for lots of "I'm a reformer and will shake things up,", "I'm not a Washington insider and don't know the answer to that,", "I'm regular folks and a maverick,".

You know the kind of things you could coach anyone to repeat over and over. Lot's of slogan like answers falling short of really answering the question.

Her voice kinda remains me of Francis Mcdormand in that movie Fargo. Sure she's not from Minnesota?

The book in question was made public back in July and Mccain's camp clearly knew about it. They are using this as a strategy to say "See, see, how unfair they are that's why Palin lost,". They are expecting your gal to lose tonight and are pre making excuses to cover for it. While it may work with people who want to believe it like you, but to the great majority of people will be able to see right through this deception. Pathetic really, but that's the kind of campaign they've been running.

When the presidential debate commision picked her all they knew was she was writing a book on politics. They didnt know what it was about, and she has said herself that she failed to notify them. The book title is "The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama," Even if you can get past her bias. There is the fact that she has an intrest financially in this. I can only imagine the backlash that would be had if a conservative was moderating this.

Maybe Ann Coulter can moderate the next debate Think

Palin didn't do too bad, but skirted a couple answers. Biden came through, and showed he is the best VP candidate. He won hands down. Palin did redeem herself and won't be a punchline anymore.

SoCo, I find your condescension toward Palin disturbing -- largely because it represents the tone the left is using toward her.

If I get your position right, a woman that attractive can't possibly be able to think for herself. You're forgetting one thing -- when she knocked off some very seasoned opponents up here, no one was coaching her.

It took Obama forever to refer to her as a governor. Apparently, the left is afraid to admit that an attractive woman can be intelligent and possess grit and leadership ability -- or build a respectable record.

I said it before -- it'd mean a lot more to me if the Obama ticket had been magnanimous about it and applauded her accomplishments and treated her as a worthy opponent. But they're not capable of doing that -- all they know how to do is demean and destroy. That's not how you win friends and influence people, and it's not how you build bridges to your opposition.

I have to think about that when Obama promises to be bipartisan and bring positive change. If he were to govern the way he campaigns, nobody's going to want to work with him and he won't accomplish squat.

So Sage, what did ya think regarding the moderation? Was it the 'black' Ann Coulter attack dog of the left?

I thought she was more then fair almost to the point of not being assertive and asking for answers to the questions being given by Palin.

You are reaching and making stuff up, making assumptions which aren't true to try and bolster your argument. The Obama camp has said nothing but positives about her. I'll admit that's probably their goal to be nice, but again shows you're making crap up.

Post a negative thing Obama or Biden have said about her instead of just throwing accusations of it.

Happy to say, she was very fair.
