Rainbow Room, NYC — Minus some time I may have spent threatening to jump. But then I realized I’m at the top of the Rock and that would have hurt bad.
A TOXIC MESS
She’s just a natural. When I said let Sarah be Sarah, this is what I meant.
This will be called a draw, if it keeps going like this.
SHOULD SHE HAVE SAID
“Straight up” when talking about gay marriage?
She got applause at the Susan B. Anthony Fund for her marriage answer. I’m not sure she is clear on McCain’s civil union position.
DID I HEAR WRONG?
Biden was for gay marriage before he was against it? Like tonight? I may have misheard.
I THOUGHT THIS WAS THE CASE
Biden mislead on coal. From the McCain campaign:
Joe Biden Said That He Didn’t Support Clean Coal And Said “No Coal Plants Here In America.” PERSON: “Senator, Senator, wind and solar are flourishing here in Ohio, so why are you supporting clean coal?” BIDEN: “Say … I didn’t hear what you said.” PERSON: “Wind and solar are flourishing here in Ohio, so why are you supporting clean coal?” BIDEN: “We’re not supporting ‘clean coal.’ Guess what. China’s building two every week. Two dirty coal plants. And it’s polluting the United States. It’s causing people to die.” PERSON: “So will you support wind and solar?” BIDEN: “Absolutely. Before anybody did. The first guy to introduce a global warming bill was me, 22 years ago. The first guy to support solar energy was me, 26 years ago. It came out of Delaware. But guess what. China is gonna burn three hundred years of bad coal unless we figure out how to clean their coal up. Because it’s going to ruin your lungs and there’s nothing we can do about it. No coal plants here in America. Build them, if they’re going to build them over there make ‘em clean because they’re killing you.” (Joe Biden, Remarks, Maumee, OH, 9/17/08)
A WHITE FLAG OF SURRENDER
That took guts.
THE HONOR YOU SHOW OUR MILITARY
GOD LOVE HIM BUT HE’S DEAD WRONG
I must say Biden is being Senator Discipline tonight save for a sigh.
IF PEOPLE VOTE ON IRAQ
they may be really attracted to Biden after this debate.
I DON’T THINK PEOPLE WILL VOTE ON IRAQ.
The JOKe WILL BE
Sarah can teach John how to saw Ahmadinijad.
has a passion for foreign policy.
OUR RESPECT FOR WOMEN’S RIGHTS
Biden, damn the chick is using the chick card. Damn.
Obama wouldn’t meet with the mullahs. Okay, then. Israel ain’t worried now.
Biden REALLY means that.
IRAN ON THE MARCH
Biden almost sounds like he could go Hillary hawkish. Don’t think he talked to Obama about that.
We all love Israel. Will Barack tell Mahmoud?
Has their text message poll in Blue for Biden and Pink for Palen. For real.
I’m STILL THINKING
They call this a draw. But who the happy warrior is is no question.
MY TIME’S ALMOST UP
I’m shocked it took this long.
THERE HE GOES, SIGHING AT THE WOMAN AGAIN
Feminists would get ticked if they didn’t hate her.
It’s REALLY ANNOYING
When Biden says “let me say that again.” Like the gun clingers can’t follow his brilliance.
IS OBAMA IN THAT MUCH TROUBLE IN INDIANA?
Dick Lugar is the star of the show tonight.
MAN, It’S SO CLEAR I’M A WASHINGTON STRATEGY
You voted for the war and then … Oh boy. I believe she calls that going after the good ole’ boys.
TAKING THE POLITICS OUT OF THESE WAR ISSUES
People are REALLY for that.
PRESIDENT JOHN MCCAIN WOULD BE A NATIONAL TRAGEDY?!?
Okay, we don’t have a flair for the dramatic.
Has my SBA Fund crowd ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING.
First elected to the Senate
EVERYTHING SOME OF US HAVE BEEN SAYING ABOUT SARAH PALIN’S GOOD INSTINCTS
Appears to be true and on display tonight.
GO, SARAH, GO!
It will amaze me if McCain doesn’t flip on Alaska drilling. If he wins because of her, he’ll have to.
SAY IT AIN’T SO JOE
We knew that would come.
HER REWARD IS IN HEAVEN
Palin just won the teacher vote. UNIONS BE DAMNED.
EXTRA CREDIT FOR WATCHING THIS DEBATE
She just near won a teacher’s union head.
CHENEY. DANGEROUS. DIRE.
Did he just downgrade the office of the vice president? Isn’t it IN THE CONSTITUTION? You can’t just unilaterally change that in St. Louis.
I THINK THIS IS TRUE.
An e-mail: “Gov. Palin is just preposterously charming! (Yes, my wife knows I said
that.) She’s really on her game and certainly has passed the “see her as
President test” but it’s that hometown flair that lights up the screen.
Biden has swerved wildly from forceful to tart to unnervingly treacly to
…as is per usual.”
SHE’S EXCELLENT WHEN SHE TALKS ABOUT HEALTH CARE
She should make this one of her issues – to talk about his health-care plan. McCain doesn’t enough. She does it well. Just get the details down and weave it into your personal story.
IS THE MCCAIN-PALIN TICKET
I’ll never look at Joe Biden the same again.
WHO EVER SAID
Joe Biden didn’t know how to raise children alone?
Should have been the drinking game for tonight.
Is she doesn’t have thorough substantive comebacks. I don’t think it will matter to people. It will matter to MSNBC. They’re not people. They’re left-wingbots.
I expected Palin to outburst and exclaim: “SAT word!” more teacher points!
I bet they talk about that at the Wasilla kitchen tables.
NOT CARING WHO GETS THE CREDIT FOR ONE
I believe I have a Ronald Reagan quote along those lines on a paperweight. Methinks the Great Communicator phrase will be used again.
SINCE BIDEN HAD TO GO AFTER BORK
From the NR Cruise:
WITHOUT THE FILTER of THE MAINSTREAM MEDIa
She gets blogger love for using MSM. What did I tell you? They are running an anti-media campaign.
Is Biden’s nickname, in case you didn’t catch that.
“She’s hot,” one woman in the room here in the Rainbow Room exclaimed as soon as the debate was over. I’m guessing Keith Olbermann downstairs isn’t screaming the same. Susan B. Anthony Fund people are Fox people. Sorry, Keith, catch you later.
AND THE WINNER IS
Sarah Palin won this debate and puts the campaign in a great position to rail against the media. Whatever she did before this debate – prayed? – is what she should always fall back on. And my impression is what she does. And why she’s come so far so fast.
Sarah Palin is the breath of fresh air on the political scene so many hoped she is. And she’ll be honored to beat the guy who’s been in the Senate since she was in the second grade.
ONE PRO-LIFE ACTIVIST SAYS
I’m back where I was a month ago. I wasn’t where Kathleen parker was but I was starting to waiver. My daughter made a “Sarah Rocks” sign that we have on the back of our minivan. I was starting to not feel so good about it. I’m back where I was a month ago. Sarah does, in fact, rocks.
OTHERS HERE WITH THE SBA FUND
Via a conference call, says: “She was not as loquacious as Joe Biden but she was straightforward, solid, and likable … and accessible.”
THE MOST DISTURBING PART OF THAT DEBATE
May have been Biden’s veep answer. Someone get that man a pocket Constitution. The Heritage Foundation should do a drop tomorrow.
