I have really two things to say about the debate tonight, which I'm going to DVR and might get around to watching after I catch up on Boston Legal. The first is that Sarah Palin is going to do much better than people think she will. She may not have the firmest grasp of the issues but she connects well with people, which is a much bigger deal (remember GHW Bush looking at his watch?). The second is that it won't matter. Real issues have replaced lipstick in the national focus, and Palin vs. Biden is now a side show.
Media criticism and political commentary, or rather, useless trivial whining from someone who knows the media (and knows how to whine).
