"Let Me Say It Again"

Biden rocked it. He was back on his heels for nearly the first 45 minutes of the debate as Palin exhausted herself with winks and linguistic gimmicks, all of which worked beautifully on television. But you can only keep that up for so long. Biden was steady and consistent, not overagressive and yet not deferential. People will say that Palin exceeded Biden's expectations, and I don't think that's true. Biden has expressed nothing but esteem and high regard for the Governor since the day she was announced. Tonight he showed up her utter lack of substance by the abundance of his own. This exchange on Afghanistan is perhaps the best example.
