paradox saidI didn't watch. According to a friend of mine:
Palin beat the point spread.
You nailed it. Although the Repubs here in RJ Land are going wild with joy. They had declared her the Second Coming even before the debate, despite her previous idiocies.
Now that she didn't melt down, thanks to an altered debate format and frantic last-minute briefings, they've declared her the winner and worthy to lead the country.
The most intriguing bit of illogic to me is the gay Repubs latching onto Biden's failure to enthusiastically support gay marriage. Obviously that was done for political reasons, to deny the Republicans their wedge issue against the Dems. First ya gotta get elected before you can support anything, and the Repubs have this big 'ol trap called "gay marriage" waiting for the Dems.
Does anyone think that Biden would OPPOSE gay marriage once in office? Does anyone think Palin would NOT oppose gay marriage once in office?
To try and equate Obama & Biden's ultimate support of gay rights issues with McCain and Palin's is utter nonsense, and a total distortion of logic.
