I'm in a rush, so it'll be short and sweet. Sarah Palin made Joe Biden look like and angry, bitter old man. Her genius for speaking directly to the American people as if she were sitting in their living room having a cup of coffee is what won her this debate.
While Joe Biden lectures, she converses. While Biden talks down to the people, she talks with the people.
My lauding her communications strengths so evident in last night's debate isn't to discount her obvious intelligence, ability to lead, and strength that the mainstream media are trying to smack down at every turn. She excelled in this medium, and it was a wonderful thing to behold.
