I had a feeling she'd do OK cuz I knew they were going to drill her. And she did OK, if you consider the snippiness and the "folksiness" and a coupla one-liners.
But she evaded some questions, she kept going back to "energy" even if the question started out as something entirely different, and she did some predictable things like make Biden look old.
Overall, what gets me is
- How come Obama is "inexperienced" and it's not OK, but she's "inexperienced" but it's OK? And no, the difference isn't he's running for President and she's running for Veep. Cuz to me it looks like she's running for President. Since I get the distinct feeling McCain isn't well/doesn't really want this anymore/is downright old. So she really IS running for President. A female GW, that's what we'd get.
- She kept coming back to what she did in Wasilla. Wasilla has about the same number of people in it that the Rock does (2000 census lists the population out here at 4,520). People, that's small. Really small. That's not a lot of governing. That would mean the guy who owns the store downstairs from me, and who is the head of the Chamber of Commerce and is basically the unofficial Mayor of The Rock... HE could go on to be Governor of Manhattan, and then Vice President. NOT!
