Sarah Palin is ready to lead. She totally rocked the debate last night and was a total winner. Liberal media bias will tell you that she was friendlier and people liked her more she just can't match up with Biden. WRONG. If you saw the debate, your eyes don't lie. She went toe-to-toe with Biden for 90 minutes. Beyond just presentation, which the MSNBC crew likes to say to belittle her, Sarah Palin was also right on the substance and . America agrees with Governor Palin - Government is more often the problem than able to fix the problem.
Was it me or did it seem that every 3-5 minutes, you could hear this audible Al Gore-esque sigh over Senator Biden's microphone. Talk about depressing. What a contrast between the upbeat positive Sarah Palin and the old codger of Joe Biden who wants to dwell on President Bush and the Past. As they say, let's Move On. I thought Governor Palin totally rocked the house. Her presentation rocked and she made great points about energy, education and how Biden and Obama would rather waive the white flag than support our troops.
What the media said about last night:
"I think she just spoke to the people, the American People."
Luntz Focus Group Voter Fox News
"Governor Palin proved very adept at being a good debater. ... In many ways, she was a better surrogate for her top of the ticket than Joe Biden was for his."
Chuck Todd NBC
"I thought it was quite effective for her in general. I suspect most people, there are a few more hallmark moments, Norman Rockwell moments but I suspect most people will really like that."David Brooks New York Times
"It was her evening. She was the star. She had him at, 'Nice to meet you. Hey, can I call you Joe?' It was very interesting to me, for Palin tonight, for an hour and a half, I think America saw her for a really long time, and she became a star probably on a new level."

Although I had wished that she would have gotten into this whole financial mess. Fannie Mae is the true culprit of this debacle and their fast and loose underwriitng standards - only permitted due to those Democrat coffers Fannie Mae lined with campaign contributions. Do we know why Fannie Mae went down? Yes, Democrat support of deregulation or maybe no regulation over Fannie Mae. On the other hand, John McCain fought for tougher oversight of Fannie Mae and was rebuffed by the filibuster proof Democrat minority and liberal Dems in the House.
