Don't Expect Fireworks On Palin Debate Night

Andrew Halcro, who has debated Sarah Palin several times in the past, says of his experience:

I've debated Governor Palin more than two dozen times. And she's a master, not of facts, figures, or insightful policy recommendations, but at the fine art of the nonanswer, the glittering generality. Against such charms there is little Senator Biden, or anyone, can do.

Source: Jed Lewison at HuffPo, who goes on to say (righfully I think, based on the past Palin n0n-speeches I've seen):

I don't think she'll display much in the way of specifics, but she will get the values-oriented language right, and that should be good enough at least for a draw, and that will mean she beats expectations.

(( Sigh ))... Looks like Dave will be right again. Damn you, Dave... hurry up and predict that NoS will sell 3 million copies, willya???

Someone here is lowering expectations for Biden. :P

And boy what a brilliant selection Biden was as running mate to the Obamessiah. Joe Biden is the face of change? bwahaaahaa!

We'll see... If she gives nothing but a string of non-answers like I've heard her spew in the past, we'll know. At least Biden will go on Meet The Press while Palin cowers in her cram-session "debate prep", rehearsing her sound bytes.
