With Deck Stacked Against Her, Palin Emerges Victorious
ST. LOUIS, MO -- Tonight, Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin emerged victorious in her debate against twenty-six year Washington D.C. politician Joseph Biden.
Throughout the evening, Palin reminded viewers why she is the overwhelming favorite among "Sixpack Americans." While Senator Biden provided "smart" answers regarding the challenges our nation faces, Palin showed that she has a true common sense, rooted in her middle American values. While Biden tried to impress the Missouri audience with his big words and policy gobbly-gook, Palin refused to play that game-- instead relying on her experiences as a mother, a small-town mayor, and as the most popular governor in the United States. Palin showed the same grit she used while taking on the old boys' network in Alaska.
At points during tonight's debate, it became clear that Governor Palin was in fact debating two people, instead of just one as she had been promised. Moderator Gwen Ifill-- who recently completed work on a gushing book on Barack Obama-- spent most of the evening trying to throw the Governor off with her "gotcha" questioning. Rather than playing Ifill's biased liberal media game, Governor Palin stuck to her guns, repeatedly reminding the debate audience why she and John McCain were the nation's best choice to fix our ailing economy and meet the challenges we face abroad.
